  1. i can only play the 300-400 range, but for some reason my opponents dont blunder at all…

  2. I rose from 480 to 550 thanks to this video of yours! Thank you so much!

  3. BRO I HAD 1 mistake 1 blunder n 0 missed wins WHAT 500s AM I VERSING THAT MAKE ME LOOSE WHAT AND MY ACCARCY WAS 85

  4. I bounced between 400 and 600 until I figured out all the tricks my opponents were using to attack my f pawn. I’ve been climbing steadily since then with a 55% win rate. Hopefully it doesn’t level off for a while. I think my biggest problem now is not catching my opponents blunders until I analyze the game.

  5. Found your channel and I'm subscribing immediately because I'm stuck at 500

  6. Cant wait for the other rated videos! I want to get to 1000 by end of Summer!

  7. Here from r/chessbeginners! This is the kind of video I needed. Sometimes I play fine and then other times 4 move checkmate whoops.

  8. I keep getting high 800's (cant remember the exact #), but then I lose a few games that pushes me down .And then the cycle repeats. Cant seem to get past 850

  9. You are making excellent videos! I’m stuck at 1400 and I was waiting for your next video and it was spot on. Great stuff, thank you very much!

  10. I like to play balanced what kind of opening can you suggest me

  11. Thank you very helpful pls never stop making videos not many people put the effort

  12. Hit my new record at 678 from 580 after this video 👍

  13. About the blunder part, taking a bishop for a pawn is good if they only have a pawn and you have a bishop to force a draw. You cant mate with a bishop and they can mate w a pawn. Only do this in endgames

  14. Keep up the good work! I have been struggling lately because I suddenly fell from 820 to ~570, mostly because of my blunders (often more than 5-6 per game!), and I have to say that you have helped me a lot. I really love your style of teaching, I wish you the best!

  15. I like these videos! However, in Blundering, you also have to consider intentional sacs and exchange sacrifices. And unintended piece loss or move that creates one on yourself would have to be part of it. Undefended pieces can be part of it too, but could be victim of a tactical combo that typically requires a higher rating (experience) to spot. IE: It's not just points lost. PS: I think, in the last example, it was White that Blundered more . He was defended once and attacked 2x. And he'll be down a pawn after Nxe5.
