  1. Being around the ELO ranks shown in this video, I found the content absolutely awesome. Great ideas, great moves all around, and … still no mercy !
    Plus, it really conforted me to see THE Erice Rosen in a losing position on one of the games. This goes to show the first one to collapse loses. Eric being Eric, he won't be collapsing first, of course.
    Guys, we have to work on our stamina !
    Chess is like a puzzle game played by two players. Each move, you present some problems to your opponent, who in turn has to give you back another problem. If you cannot crack it, or if you get tired, you lose.
    Brutal !

  2. I am enjoying this countdown to Eric losing a game. haha

  3. I think anyone who is looking at this Betterhelp thing might want to do a bit of research into the Vastaamo fiasco. I definitely would not be trusting an online company with highly personal information that could be hacked. Especially considering the incompetence of modern developers.

  4. Eric please terminate the sponsorship contract with BetterHelp, you're better than this

  5. Eric, this is Karson Stanley writing to you. I know you but you do not know me yet. Iโ€™ve been waiting for I believe over 2 months for the rest of your tournament videos. Thank you for everything and please continue to upload the speedrun but Iโ€™m begging you, I want to see how the tournament is or was

  6. Watching this video helped me to go on an all time best win streak at puzzles, with 11 in a row of 2100+ rated puzzles. Thanks for the extra motivation!

  7. Wow, seems like a therapy company could've given better help.

  8. Speed run is awesome. Thanks for the content ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. So glad a new video dropped:) Iโ€™m pretty sleepy too

  10. Please don't take sponsorships from BetterHelp

  11. I thought that @ 24:50 Qh4 would have been better than Bf6, even if it drops the pawn the h-file battery seems lethal. Am I missing something?

  12. That was an hell of a game with Luque_co. Glad you made it, Cause I would have definitely Resigned out of frustration.

    Your opponent played a good game possibly the best in this series.

  13. Great last game, was pleasure to watch!

  14. I would like to play you. You're pretty good

  15. Really happy to see that players around my own rating are giving Eric some tough competition.

  16. that last game was intense! were getting into dangerous territory now… how much longer will the streak stand?

  17. This entire comment section sounds like an echo chamber. "Dont get in bed with betterhelp". "Betterhelp is terrible, stay away eric". Let the man make his own decisions. Everybody chirping, companies make mistakes. Go do something with your life, improve something in your life, and let others do the same.

  18. I saw that knight fork in the last game and wondered why the opponent didn't play it. I thought I had missed something obvious that both Eric and his opponent were aware of because it's one of the easier tactics to see.

  19. When you started this series on January, I was at 1200, now I am at 1600, you are catching up to me really fast… can you please send me your study material on scandinavian and london, I wanna get to 1800 before you do…. thanks…

  20. On this beautiful day, IM Rosen invented the game of Cannibal Chess, which is normal chess except you can take your own pieces. You lose material, but can gain new positional attacks, even mating nets, in the process!

  21. Never resign! Your opponent might mouse-slip.

  22. 8:07 is there a tactic Bxf2, Rxf2, Re1+, Kc2, Rxa1?

  23. Love what you're doing with this series and in general, but please drop Better Help as your sponsor ASAP, they are extremely bad news. Unlicensed and underpaid therapists, selling client data to advertisers, shady payment/pricing tactics, and more. They were bad when they got called out years ago and they're arguably even worse now.

  24. 47:33 any bishop move to the right side was just checkmate instead of the whole mouse slip sequence ๐Ÿ˜›

  25. Stop crying over a sponsorship and watch the man play chess holy sh*tโ€ฆ

  26. Is it time for a new chess variant? Cannibal chess, where you can also take your own pieces.

  27. "This is not the type of move a player of this rating would make…" You never know, dude. My rating is the same as your opponent here and I saw this move immediately.

  28. 19:07 I'm recovering from a broken rib and this man makes me laughing until it hurts ๐Ÿ˜‚ canibalise my pawn๐Ÿคฃ

  29. Hey Eric, love the content, hate BetterHelp

  30. Very clever use of chess for the ad, unfortunately they are a bad company ๐Ÿ™

  31. You almost lost from the 1600 guy because in all your games instead of playing your elo which is IM , you play vs your opponents elo. Sober up, and make more videos like. Thank you mister

  32. Great installment to this series. That last guy played you very well. Love seeing the higher rated opponents hang on.

  33. Psychologically, escaping a fork only to fall into a second fork is devastating. I don't think you can underestimate the psychological effect on a human player.

  34. Online counseling company BetterHelp has agreed to pay $7.8 million to settle charges from the Federal Trade Commission…

  35. All the people saying to drop Better Help can put their money together and sponsor the next video ๐Ÿ˜‚

  36. Eric stop taking money from scams. You are above this. Just refuse the money or forever be known as a shill.

  37. I have to ask….at 18:50, why not Qg4? Attacking the pawns on E4 and G7?

  38. I hate Knights with a passion. These things can mess up everything if you are not careful in the endgame. On the other hand, I love them for this reason X-)

  39. Watched 1st 2 games, chess should not be this simple!! I understand all the principles here, yet can't play like this ๐Ÿ˜ช

  40. 50:00 That white line that calculates the probable winner is incredible ๐Ÿ˜‰
    What software are you using?
