  3. Great content Nelson , I feel more confident already.Thanks a lot

  4. New on this channel ,but I can say it's one of the best to learn chess

  5. dude ur amazing at teaching im so glad i found u

  6. 11:40 . This clarified so much as to why I see GMs not take strong pieces when you are simply moving a pawn to take it. Chess is so simple but so complex at the same time. I don't understand the defense and counter side and reading what your opponent is trying to do. I simply think of attack. This is a great video.

  7. Your videos are great i really enjoy them but im sorry to say its difficult for me to watch them because of the sound you make when you breathe in between sentences. Smh I feel like an ass hole but it bugs the ever living shit out of me. Like can you breathe through your nose or breathe without that noise? I know im being a bit ridiculous but its like nails on a chalkboard to me. You have the best videos for explaining chess that I've found so it really sucks i have such a hard time listening.

  8. Great content! I REALLY enjoyed your method very much.

  9. Its funny cause the knight moved in the thumbnail is a blunder

  13. Can you create a playlist that contains all your top n videos? I've watched many of them and it would be nice to have them in one place to go over again. I need frequent refreshers.

  14. I feel so smart for predicting rook taking e3 in your game, awesome video by the way

  15. how about sacrifice the king cause he's just doing nothing all day, sitting and hanging around with a tower

  16. Attacking is very important.Defence is also
    very important.It is like Football.You must
    have control of the centre ground.You must
    also have good options on both sides of the
    Chess Board.
    Both the Centre Ground and the Sides must
    have a Good Defence.
    With all of this in place and a good strategy
    and plan,,you will check-mate your opponent.
    At all times,keep your eyes open on your

  17. My jaw dropped to the floor on the game where white sacrificed its bishop, both rooks & queen to win the game! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
