  1. hey that game of your 1100 student vs that 1350 player, could you maybe go over how they got there? that development looks amazing, or maybe point out which video contains how i would get there? I am rated about 950 on at the moment, thank you!!

  2. Just started learning chess 2 weeks ago when I stumbled on your channel! Love your videos, thank you.

  3. wow brilliant vid this one levy…… your courses are just awesome highly recommended

  4. I’m new to chess, I’ve always known how to play but never did and I’m playing bad chess bots but once I get them down to basically just their king and maybe a pawn while I have a bishop, 2 rooks and my queen and I can’t put them in checkmate. Any tips?

  5. reminds me of the Greek Gift sacrifice which usually has 3 or 4 attacking pieces…

  6. The Rule of 2, a master and an apprentice. Got it.

  7. Make Money in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that I believe is guaranteed to be as challenging and exciting as CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    It is my hope that one day Ruvol may surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play.


    I detailed everything in my YouTube video. Here is the link:


    It is worthwhile to note that the people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. Even just a small percentage of these 800 million is good enough to earn big money from Ruvol either as an ONLINE GAME BUSINESS or as a PHYSICAL PRODUCT DISTRIBUTOR.

    Thanks and God bless!

  8. Me after seeing the game before he tells us

    Genius noises

  9. At 5:24, you played e4 to unblock the black bishop on c1, but it blocks the white bishop on d3. Why is the white bishop less useful in this scenario?

  10. I would like to add a tip here. Attacking pieces are worth more than the defending pieces, so exchange as many attackers as possible

  11. Conclusion of this video: wanna attack? Sacrifice…
