  1. At 13:20, for Game 2 if instead of Rh8-f8, what if B had first played Bxf2+?

  2. I played my dad in chess and using your rook endgame tricks i was able to checkmate him with a king and rook…fun stuff haha

  3. Sometimmes i just like to sit and analyze games from higher ratings.It really does help with a better understanding of the game.

  4. Currently just below the 1000 range. But still loving these Rating Climb series.

    Super educational' and I always learn so much from your explanations and mindset before every move.

  5. Hey man , what would you say is an ideal rating where a person can be considered a good chess player ?

  6. Absolutely amazing instruction! Thank you for all your Rating Climb videos.. they are so helpful and great entertainment to learn some chess strategy and tactics! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Ne4 doesn't win the queen, does it? Black has Nf4.

  8. ุดุนุจ ุงู„ุงู‡ู„ูŠ ุนุธูŠู… says:

    Nothing new , as usual another fantastic video

  9. Nice trapped queen!! I love caro kann! What do you suggest as a caro kann replacement vs d4? Iโ€™ve been playing old benoni but I want something more solid, but without mirroring moves

  10. In last video you said "chess is kind a bunch of tactics" …you mean like if you are good at tactics you are good and chess …and it's the most important and tough part.. I have are request like how you become a tactical Giant making great tactical vison etc. Do you have any immediate tips for that? And how do you practice that .. please reply…edit a question 4:20 …there is principal that you should not exchange bishop for knight until you get any good reward? Then?

  11. Very good video man. I like how you speak clearly and explain effectively your thought process

  12. I have a one question. Is there something like too late to become GM? Because i really like chess but there's something that can't keep me motivated much. The fact i haven't trained it earlier. Btw good channel thou ๐Ÿ‘

  13. Awesome commentary, great to hear your thought process. Does the move bd3 at 18:21 hang the d pawn or there's something I'm not seeing

  14. Great videos man! I climbed from 300 in January to 1300 just a few days back and your videos are giving me useful tips.

  15. I appreciate you explaining your thought process through this .good stuff

  16. Trapping a Queen in the middle of the board is really cool. Especially when you don't realize it lol ๐Ÿ˜†

  17. That queen trap was the cherry on top.

  18. Great instruction and I appreciate you sharing your thought processโ€ฆ

  19. Black can sacrifice his knight on c3 or f4 to make room for his queen on d5. Black loses his knight but there's still fight left for him.

  20. Too many cheaters now to improve a chess rating properly unfortunately, cheats have ruined the whole online chess experience.

  21. What a great video. Thanks for letting us into your thought process. Glad I've found you and your channel!

  22. Your videos are very enjoyable. Great work.

  23. Passed 1400 just now.. haven't studied much so seeing this vid helps

  24. Awesome video. These rating climbs are gold ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Thanks again! Focusing on weakness while playing my games lately, you learned me that empty squares can be weakness, not only pieces. Also, at my level now, I can't imagine sacrificing pieces (pawns) like you do; I consider this being a notion for high level players; maybe one day. ๐Ÿ™‚ All this tricks widens my mind and, from time to time, I discover applying one of them in my games and I feel good because I can see a little improvement in my playing! Regards!

  26. Is it safe to say that the weakness in 1400 to 1600 elo players is that they don't know how to handle the opening stage well ?
