  1. Chess Ratings and Titles are a big topic for many chess players to fully understand for all levels. Would you enjoy watching a expanded edition to include even more titles beyond FIDE like online titles and maybe talk more about what we will be seeing in the future about how 2900+ FIDE players would be like?

  2. In the end people under 1200 and people at 2200 both lose to the GMs.
    Anyway… Thanks for making a video based on my suggestion.

  3. Nice video! I'll share this video with my students!

  4. It’s a little odd having ads play when I look up this video. Seems like a good sign for your channel.

  5. The reason I wanna get a title is to participate in titled arenas

    Cries in class D

  6. Me thinks I'm superior at chess
    Also me:novice(600)

  7. I am under 10 points to reach 1800 in lichess with only b4 opening And b5 or g5 defence, does that count or how can i get rated?

  8. Novice 1000 damn i need a lot of work for my first title

  9. I have been hovering around 800 for a long time. I was a better chess player when I was 12 than I am now!

  10. Good vídeo. I guess I will have to work hard to get out of class D I feel like a 1200 rating player. I think people beyond the 2,000 rating are potential expert pros so everyone on the club level of 1800 and 2.000 would be a decent playing warrior. If you Grand Master I guess the difference to be Super would be practice and be a hardcore student Doctor Degree in Chess . Perhaps with Magnus Carsen , Hikaru Nakamura, Gerri , Fabiano Caruana or Wesly So as your desired teachers. Forget Garry Kasparov as he lost his good luck with chess.

  11. We had an fm and an Im and an expert our chess club. Those guys saw everything on the board. They could not be fooled. Basically they play a different game.

  12. You could have added the arena titles without the class d e thingy

  13. Honestly this video is so trash lol. Each level "rly hard 2 get here, gotta work hard"
