  1. Hello im new subcriber..i hope this is a great chanel..

  2. hey, I just discovered your channel and I must say that it's amazing, your content is very good and you explain in a nice easy way.

  3. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  4. this channel is so good (im 1300ish for perspective) that I have to subscribe because I know I will refer to videos like this in the future

  5. Some of your examples are whack. Bad bishop for example

  6. Thank you for this video, you get one loyal subscriber!

  7. Love the lesson – With a crappy ELO of 670 and playing chess for 1 year hopefully this will help. Thanks

  8. I think that l am better than you. Because I solved in puzzel rush 2650 elo puzzel

  9. Dude charges no fees for million dollar lessonsπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€‘

  10. Two thumbs up πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž, (Chess Heads) this is actionable quality content, well narrated. Video & Host Recommended ❀

  11. Scholars mate got me from 200-600 elo. Spanish got me to 1000. 1500 Is next

  12. His first example of a bad bishop isn't very good. I you had to do was fiacheto the bishop and it wouldn't have been bad.

  13. I love it. Condensed information instead of endless yapping.

  14. After watching this, now I understand why I’m losing so many games on the app πŸ˜‚

  15. This is gold. Thanks for sharing this with us ❀

  16. Half of these are that you don't count your pieces by the math value, but also by the role in the fight
    We know that from GM and computer positions

  17. I remember over 10 years ago I played this good player I did in passant and he said I was cheating I told him this is an actual proper chess move he didn't believe me I love your channel best tips I've seen so farπŸ‘

  18. The box method is really useful in bullet and rushed blitz endgames to determine fast whether a pawn has advanced enough, thanks!

  19. When ever my opponent makes a mistake or has some weakness I can't understand

  20. I'm not happy seeing what looks like AI generated art as the thumbnail. Some bizarre perspective issues

  22. Doesn't lesson 14 violate the other principle in chess that you should not move the same piece many times at the beginning of the game?

  23. I'm a bit confused at the last positional concept. If you move pawn to b4, doesn't that make that pawn hanging? With bishop on e7 takes?

  24. I appreciate it and enjoyed this very much

  25. Best chess teacher in the whole world. I really enjoy your videos and I'm remarkably improving in chess thank you so much

  26. NM Lopez
    Good chess tips! Thanks! β™ŸοΈ

  27. This channel is one of the biggest helps to me. I’m 1200 and still climbing! Every once in a while, going back to old videos and relearning basic concepts really helps.
