  1. I am a beginner so I appreciete the help,thx levi.

  2. Bro I got an add before the video and it said "he must be watching a Gotham chess video".💀💀💀💀💀

  3. @gothamchess dovetail is a carpentry term where where boards are joined at right angles and the pieces fit together perfectly for added strength.

  4. Great video, im definitely gonna be a different player now.

  5. Hello from France ! I am trying to progress ( between 800-900 elo at the moment) and noticed that I often fail to foresee or deliver checkmate efficiently so this is definitely a valuable content for me !
    Just discovered you and the entire online world of chess !Didn't expect that popularity ! Merci 😊

  6. 4:38 I don’t want the mate here I want the queen ( bcz it’s a fork )

  7. 4:05
    am i just dumb or cant i just move my rook to g8 here and thats checkmate? Or then Knight cant move there and am just dumb

  8. I'm getting stronger and it's becoming harder to check… so true🤣

  9. "in-your-face-you're-trash-my-rook-defeated-you checkmate"

    – GothamChess

  10. Hey Levy, about 10:05 you said the "only way for black to defened is g6" why cant black play Nh5? I know its an old vid but i hope somebody sees this

  11. In your face you're trash you got defeated by my rook mate

  12. In 17:28, Why doesn't Black play Qg1+, because after Raxg1(Only move) there is Nf2#

  13. Really helpful videos. I am finally learning in a methodical way, and these are really useful for me.

  14. This is a very very very good video. Thank you Levy!

  15. Really like this and all Gotham vides. Clear explanations. Enthusiasm to the max.

  16. Hey levy you forgot your ending lines "get outta here!"

  17. I am soooo angry in smothered mates that levy missed check mate in 2

  18. My uncle showed me how to mate. He’s in prison now.

  19. Arabian mate: the name comes one of the oldest checkmate ever know. An it was in an arabian book of chess

  20. This is what I was looking for! Perfect explanaition, so clear. Thanks a lot!! 10/10😊😊

  21. 3:38 just claim it as the Gotham mate – or maybe the Batman mate…

  22. 12:40 look at a dovetail joint in carpentry and you will see the similarity of the shape…

  23. YOU DİDN'T SAİD LAİDES AND GENTELEMEN FOR THE FİRST TİME

  24. Please make a video on only 'PAWN'. How to move individual pawns, when to, where to and when not to.

  25. Can you do a video on the different type of chess pieces how much they cost and where to buy them?

  26. I was once able to do the "in your face your trash my rook defeated you cheatmate".

  27. "Which results in the knight smothering the king to death💀"

  28. Those patterns are really useful ♟️

  29. 10:03 I was in that position today (without bishop in E2) but the guy played knight h5, so could not protect my bishop nor mate anymore🤔

  30. We’re casing big things. We hit 360,000 today. 🎉🎉

  31. 13:37, it works in this case too right? rook to f1, if taken by enemy rook, queen takes rook and mate, but if king moves, same dovetail mate.

  32. 11:38 me, as a 500: next move, me take rook!
    Levy: and you deliver checkmate
    Me: … Oh

  33. BOYYYYS. i just did a smothered mate the first time!!!
    just like how levi mentioned.
    FREKIN HELLFEELSSOGOOOD
