  1. Nelson you are a v good teacher ๐Ÿคฉ

  2. Had to drop by the comments after watching this video and give you praise. A+ commentary and analysis

  3. I was so looking forward to my rating range! Thanks for the speedrun series

  4. I'm not usually the kind of person to comment on videos, but I must say you are by far one of the best channels to learn from. I really appreciate the effort you put into your videos. Thank you for all you do.

  5. The best National Master is back!

  6. Been waiting for this one, lets go baby Nelson Lopez is back! Daniel King step aside… Peter Leko hold that commentary for a minute, this is what the people have been waiting for!!

  7. Man it somtimes feels like I am seeing the growth of up coming legendary chess content creator of future… I came nearly one or two months ago now am a addicted, man see your growth it's amazing, I never got disappointed with your any of videos it always amazing, Somthing new, good tactics everything, and I am not lying… Like always you think of any tactical possible and explain it beautifully… I am sure you reach 10k in one or two months,…one more thing to say , after the break now you are uploading more fresh and interesting videos, lovely… An question…will you play a sac in which most of probability to win and very less to lose?…I usually do cause my rating is not so high… See you soon in your next video!

  8. 16:00 why not night D2 directly? It forks forks nearly every thing…?

  9. Quality content. Calmly explains every move, quiet passion for the game, no gimmicks or showboating.

  10. At 16:05 wouldn't Nd2 be a better fork to win the white queen and keep ours? Up one point of material after our knight is recaptured with the rook, and keep our attacking queen.

  11. I discovered your channel by accident-Simply the best and most understandable chess content I've seen-period

  12. never heard of the term babysitting a pawn but i love it lol

  13. I love this Channel โค๏ธโค๏ธ.

  14. It's easier for you to play the game first and use the pgn for the video. I think it makes for better game play on your part which leads to a much better video.

  15. By far, my favourite chess channel! I can't believe how underrated your channel is. You're doing awesome work, thank you so much!

  16. 3.30, …Bd6 worked out very well for you, but wasn't it a mistake? Suppose your opponent had thought, "he's going to attack my king, so I should trade queens." …Bd6 cuts off a retreat of the Black queen, so White can force a trade with Qc4. …Qa5 Nb3 …Qb6 isn't a good way to keep the Black queen on the board because of Qe6+ …Kg8 d5. I don't see that Black has a better option than to meet Qc4 with ..Be7 Qc4xQd5 Rd8xQd5, when the good news is that if White pushes his pawns and takes on a7 his bishop will be trapped after …b6, but the bad news is that Black's bishop took two moves getting where it should have gone in the first place, and meanwhile the queens have been traded to the relief of the White king.

  17. At 15:50 isn't it better to check the king and queen right away with the knight because you win a queen and if the rook takes you also checkmate on d1

  18. Dude you should do more of these, they're amazing.

  19. ะ ะตะดั€ั–ั… ะŸัƒั‚ัั‚ั–ะฝ says:

    this channel looks quite underestimated. This video is useful as long as many others. Thanks

  20. Love your channel ! You are my favourite chess tutor on youtube. You hold my attention with your perfect pace, and great chess knowlodge

  21. 15:50 any reasons not moving knight to d2 forking King, Queen and Rook instead of exchanging queens first?

  22. When you took the rook and forked the queen couldn't you have just forked and won the queen in general without trading queen?
