  6. as usual, a very good video and it seems will be a great series. i remember watching im alex's videos with this topic, now i can tell it's much easier, since i got used to it. but, i have a question though; how important this exercises exactly? i mean, for me or players like me (beginner, improver) how important it is? maybe you can add this question on im andrey's q&a video, he can suggest us, to beginners a simple routine. thanks for your efforts guys, keep going ✌️

  7. Finally visualization training is back πŸ‘… yes was very helpful and nice picked puzzles (we may still miss one more difficult to increase the challenge) thank you and please keep going

  8. Gee… thanks for hurting my head so much this afternoon, Andrey! Hopefully, it'll hurt less and less after I get used to this mental exercise… haha! Thanks for starting another great series!

  9. I love this type of video! One other thing, I would like to get this chess set. What is it called and where can I get it?

  10. I would love it if you could make several videos about visualization every week so that I can use them as my daily training routine. I would like to ask if you could recommend me a good book to improve my visualization skill even more. Great video as always! Greetings from Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ❀️

  11. This Ne7 move after Qe5 is the only one which I couldn't see in the first position, so perhaps in a real game it would be 50/50 whether I play Qd5 or Qe8. I guess still winning with correct play, but I should definitely try to improve visualisation. I seem to be prone to seeing "ghost" pieces (seeing a piece after it has moved since it's still on the physical board). So I end up "replaying" the variation in my mind multiple times since I loose it if I don't. Is that what people tend to struggle with and should I be doing something different than "replaying" the position constantly?

  12. Very good video and tips!
    Keep going & best regards

  13. Simply amazing video like your channel and your great website. Thank you for having the time to share with us something from your experience guys (love).

  14. Thanks for making my request into action…. I really enjoyed very much… Thank you so much

  15. I find it useful make more videos like this pleas
    I solved the bonus ex at the end and win the qween

  16. Thank you for the visualization lesson Andrey. My answer for the exercise is:
    1. Bf6 pinning the queen Qxf6
    2. Qa1+ skewering the queen on f6 thus winning the game.

    Visualization is very tiring for the mind, but the effort is all worth in chess in the long run! πŸ™‚

  17. Great video!
    Not easy for me (1900-ish lichess), haven't found the Ne7.
    Great work!
    I am sure the channel will grow very rapidly with such amazing content.

  18. This is how a teacher should be…

  19. White bishop to b5 black king to C4 white Queen to b4 check mate

  20. Visualization is my Achilles heel in chess, and this video popped up when I search the topic. It was great! Very good pace, and I especially liked the exercise at the end with no pieces on the board. Someone should make a whole tactics book with blank boards with the placement of the pieces written beneath. I think the computer is a great modern tool for learning chess, but too often we spend our time moving the pieces around the board. We need to spend much more time staring at real chess boards and thinking ahead without touching the pieces. Thank you so much for the video, and I'm going to watch your other visualization videos now.

  21. thanks, and where is the link to the second part?

  25. Bischop f6 pinning the queen to the bischop after takes queen a1 check wins the queen

  26. I would like to be able to hear the video please

  27. hello ,I have been playing chess for 1 year. I recently learned the blind flag method to improve my ability to compute variations. can you suggest me to imagine a 2d or 3d board? I usually play 3d board but I find visualizing real 3d board much harder than 2d board. do you guys think i should imagine the 2d board and imagine it when playing the 3d board? or do i have to imagine the 3d board when playing the 3d board? please give me feedback. Thank you so much.please help me i need it

  28. After Qe8 which ish blunder, Q A1 is check mates… on the minutes 5:05
