  1. Recently gained 400 elo points watching videos like these! Thanks for the awesome content!

  2. Please drink some water in your videos, I can hear your mouth sounds and it’s so hard to not focus on it. Other than that, potentially one of the best videos I have ever watched for chess ❤

  3. Taking the pawn in the first example is actually the theory move…

  4. Way too much talking and word streaming…as I process the moves – you're talking over my thoughts. Make your same points using an economy of words plz.

  5. I've been playing a lot of chess for 3 years, I'm not very good but I've noticed I play better when I can stay on the attack.

  6. My cat would be great at the "What can I attack?" strategy.

  7. Great and different content. Please create more videos about the fundamentals and ways of thinking❤

  8. Gm igor can u give an advice for aggresive opponent?

  9. Go a bit further not just attack, double attack if possible!

  10. Hi Igor. As a beginner I watch your segments over and over. Thanks for these tips. I wondered what attack(s) to use. I heard Judit Polgar plays as an attacker, now I have some knowledge how to. I wish you all the best. Now I will subscribe to your channel. Regards, Tibor.

  11. 6:20 is queen d5 a good option he never addressed it? To me it seems like a good move because it's aggressive and forks the bishop and knight but idk I'm pretty garbage at chess

  12. Your videos are very helpful. My Elo was 900 when I first saw your video. But now it is 1400. And it happen under 5 or 6 days. Your videos helping so much to improve my chess games.

  13. can u not check it first with the Queen? then B or NxN

  14. 6:05 I would take your horse if I was white..total game changer.

  15. 6:05 I would take your horse if I was white..total game changer.

  16. knight to e5 for white in the first section is the best imo

  17. knight to e5 for white in the first section is the best imo

  18. Number 00. First you have 2 read or LOOK first at your opponents LAST MOVE brother, and then ask yourself, "What is the LOGIC behind that move boy?" Get my point?
    And then this.
    I learned this from a boy, an "FM" boy
    Step #01. Candidate moves
    02. Delete Candidate move
    03. Calculate
    04. Decision make
    05. Make the move
    This "Technique" helps me sometimes when I'm playing Rapid
    My Elo rating in lichess is 1599 hahaha
    gg Well Played boy
    Respect and Chess

  19. 4:44 Knight e4If bishop takes sacrificial queen, checkmate with Bf2 🙂

  20. I would Queen to A5. It unpins the queen puts in check and if they move knight to block then I am free to take the knight on E4 because I am no longer pinned. The other way you are just Queen swapping.

  21. This video was the key to leveling up my chess game

  22. Wow. Tried this and I was dominating my next game. He had almost no development. Then he made one move and check mate. I'm playing level 600 elos. This just increased my belief that I'm stupid and now I want to commit suicide.
