  1. My balls get really sweaty when I play chess, any way to prevent this?

  2. A GingerGM speedrun upload is an auto-like from me. My favourite YouTube chess boffin. Love his presentation style. All hail Harry!

  3. These videos are so helpful and presented at just the right pace. Thanks gingerGM

  4. Some of the best chess content on youtube, better than many more popular channels. Although I think you should invest in a better computer

  5. Simon are you working on the Jobava update on chessable that you mentioned a few months ago?

  6. Very good explanation of your moves
    Very good speed run

  7. In the first game a lot of players above 2k criticize the stonewall for both sides. They tend to think that it has a rather planless middle game and too much of a system whereas the other side has clear lines to counter it and that there are far better options. Obviously people in general have biased views of openings that aren’t necessarily sincere or true thought. Would be curious to hear other people’s thoughts

  8. 24:55 This point on waiting for your opponent to make their next move is something very important I need to learn. I have lost so many games like this where the opponent just starts off by moving a bunch of pawns and not developing their pieces, and getting into awkward checks with their king traversing across the board. I'm usually thinking I need to capitalise on the fact that their pieces aren't developed, but it usually results in me sacrificing/losing a piece and then the game slowly turns around in their favour. Waiting for them to make a non-ideal move makes much more sense than just trying to rush in on a complicated arrangement. Very good point

    Also, I totally called that the person in the previous video was a cheater. Their moves were way too perfect for a 1200 player

  9. Yep. Everything Simon sais makes perfect sense. But in a game "And it's gone!(southpark)"

  10. Love your work. I’ve gone from 1700ish to 2000 rapid and 1940 Blitz thanks in large part to you.

  11. This is my favourite chess channel as for an amateur chess player, a chess fan like me, a lot to learn and really fun to watch. Thank you GingerGM.

  12. Thanks for the vid. I’m looking forward to trying the stonewall in my own games 👍

  13. Great video, GingerGM, thank you. [I'm rated 1700+ but it's still fun to watch, besides, 'keeping the tension instead of locking the pawn structure' isn't 1300+, so, always good to hear from a GM during an actual game – the real deal, unlike theories – which may or may not work].

  14. Incredibly helpful content, thank you. You make it look so simple and principled.

  15. Best quality content. These kind of videos are a great inspiration.

  16. "Send Your Chess Rating To The MOON!"
    You mean, make it six times lighter?

  17. hahahahaha “and he’s doing a very good job at that now” hahahahaahah britons and their humor

  18. You look like a Bond arch villain sitting in his underground lair looking to dominate the world.

  19. Good vid. You seemed to be in the zone on this one

  20. The best series of videos on chess play that I know. Thanks Simon! Can't wait for the next one.

  21. That last game was so instructive. I would have taken on b5 in a heartbeat and said, no worries, I can follow up with a4 to support the knight, but as you say, why allow his bishop to get active at all? Thanks for the great content

  22. Excellent teaching style that you good sir 🙏

  23. Simon, love this content. You talk a lot about finding an opening and sticking to it. I find this difficult when playing out of black as the opponent dictates the opening. Do you have a course that addresses this?

  24. Can someone explain to me why the doubled pawns on 10:15 are bad for the opponent, but at 29:15 the doubled pawns are good for Simon? I mean I understand why they are good for Simon but why so bad in the other case? Thanks!
