Chess lesson # 20: Watch your coach play Chess as he explains every move | Learn Chess the right way

National master Robert Ramirez plays a couple games and explains every move as he goes.That way, you can understand how he approaches the game. Ideally you would be the one playing and then your coach reviews your games with you in order to provide some feedback and together look for ways to improve your game. However, given the nature of these lessons, this is the best we can do!

Chess is an intellectual battle where players are exposed to numerous mental processes such as analysis, attention to detail, synthesis, concentration, planning and foresight. Psychological factors are also present on and off the board; playing Chess stimulates our imagination and creativity. Every single move a player makes is the result of a deep analysis based on the elements presented on the battle field.

Chess in its essence teaches us psychological, sociological and even moral values. In a Chess game, both players start with the same amount of material and time. The fact that the white pieces move first is considered to be practically irrelevant —especially because a player typically plays one game as white and one game as black. Consequently, the final result of the battle solely depends on each player. It doesn’t matter if you win by taking advantage of your opponent’s mistakes or by simply avoiding mistakes yourself. Truth is that Chess is an extremely individual sport and our defeats can only be blamed on ourselves and no one else. And this, in the end, only benefits us because we learn to be and feel responsible for our actions and never come up with excuses to justify ourselves.

We also learn that when it comes to our victories on the board, our opponent’s mistakes play a more significant role than our own skills. Let’s not forget that a Chess game without any mistakes would be a draw. This way, Chess provides us with another valuable life lesson: be humble at all times.

  3. Made No Mistakes
    5:54 AM
    Good Morning Coach

  4. I remember vaguely when I played like these players. It's nice to look back now and then and appreciate your progress.

  5. C'mon, bishop to g5 was an absolute killer in this position. 7:07

  6. In the second game, wouldn't 30…Qf4 just be mate?

  7. I started on this channel watching some KID and Pirc videos as this is the opening that I play. From the beginning I thought that your style and the way you repeat positions and move orders was extremely helpful. In one of those videos you got to a position with the black pieces and said "If you don't feel comfortable in this position then you don't need to be studying openings, you need to go back to some of the earlier videos". I decided to take that advice and what I have found is perhaps one of the best, most well laid out and easy to understand courses that is available. And it's FREE!!!! Thank you for making this course for everyone Robert. This channel is better than all the instructional videos on all the other channels and big name streamers.

  8. I hope i will be a good chess player someday sir, and you will be the pioneer of my success

  9. Lesson #20 ✅
    8:00 p.m.
    I sent you a friend request 😅 but I guess it is not your official account

  10. h3 in the first game was a mistake I wouldn't expect anyone higher than say 1500 to make. There were moves like f4 or Rf4. Completely winning. (Not that it wasn't still winning, but…) Then the computer showed the gangster move Qh3!.

  11. Grateful to have found your channel I've really improved

  12. Thanks sir I'm an beginner my friend totally dominated me earlier at chess but just 20 lectures into this abd I already got back at him with a win🙂

  13. Please more videos like this is so helpful for real watching analysis of every move and your tought process helps so much

  14. AWESOME! im at 360 ELO, i wanna reach 1000 elo this summer

  15. a lot of insight on how to move☠…
    well executed👏

  16. Can't help feeling sorry for the ppl on the other side thinking they play against a noobs too… I guess part of the training casualty!

  17. I really love your content, i have won a lot of games in a chess coompetition in school by your tactics, thanks a lot ❤️

  18. a random 497 getting destroyed by a NM lol

  19. This is great. You should do more games like this, play live and explain each move. Thanks for uploading!

  20. 8:15 four pieces are attacking that pawn (dont forget the queen)

  21. Interesting to see you play with commentary🙂

  22. 15:33 you could've check mated him by RH3 in one move. Great content though. I love your videos and I'm learning a lot

  23. Watching you play chess and explain all your moves is SOOO BEYOND HELPFUL!!! Please keep making these types of videos! You make it look so easy, thanks for being an amazing teacher!

  24. Summing everything up and adding layers along the way and touching on them consistently is a great asset to this course! I liked the video. Thanks Coach.

  25. thx bro but you did a lot of blunder i could check mate him in a few moves but actualy i like you

  26. I have learned SO MUCH in this video👍.

  27. Hello sir. I find your videos really helpful and really appreciate you for the efforts. You are great. Just wanted to ask at 15:28 isn't Qg3+ a checkmate (Qg3#)
    Edit:- now that i look at it closely even Qf4+ looks like checkmate to me (Qf4#)

  28. can you please tell me what are the checklist while playing chess.. i have been watching your all videos series which are really helpful to me and i really want to hear from you the checklists

  29. not sure if this was on purpose to build on the two rook checkmate lesson, but at 15:33 you could have moved your rook to h3 for mate in one

  30. I pay huge tribute to you for making me to play chess amazingly 🙏🏻

  31. You're one hell of a teacher. Every lesson I've watched has improved my chess,even the basics
