  1. No 33 hope chess, im guilty of it, it sucked a lot to listening to that, but im greatful that u did

  2. So in a nutshell –

    Here are 34 important chess principles that you should master. Oh and also they don't matter from time to time.

  3. What moves were made to flip the rook and king?

  4. Rule no 29 went missing in the video but came up in the spreadsheet

  5. Thank you for not putting Anya Taylor Joy's face in the thumbnail. Most people use that face in everything that relates to chess.

  6. You also had seen play with mobile and computer ..even a expert may loose why…
    Cause computer has a pr.edefined logic and algo ….what that algo and principle iscan you explore …

  7. Thanks good info ,Principle 29th is missing

  8. Strategy without tactics results in the longest path to victory. Tactics without strategy is but noise before defeat – Sun Tsu

    It would seem that both strategy (inventiveness, adaptation, improvisation) and tactics (proven techniques, useful knowledge/intelligence) are needed in equal measure for a good chance at success.

  9. Really like this video. However am I missing something at 17:06? How is this a smother checkmate when e7 pawn can capture the knight?

    Also at 14:06 wouldn’t rook to f1 be a good counter?

  10. this is a great video. I just started playing chess 2 months ago and am hooked ha! I am at 600 elo.

  11. Thankyou so much brother for making this video it's so helpful. 🙌🙌🙌. Love from India ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  12. Chess Principle number 36: Try not to shove pawn pieces up your butt. They get lost in there pretty easily.

  13. 17:05. I’m new to chess, but how is this a checkmate? Black’s pawn can take the knight.

  14. Nice vid I got someone with a fools mate once we both laughed

  15. on 12:20 i think a bishop trade was very bad for black because white could take a bishop with a pawn not with a quiin and make a half open file towards a blacks king witch is bad for black 🙂

  16. If there is a top 35, I wonder how many hundreds of principles there are. Almost like the go proverbs, of which are there are also hundreds, some of it making far mroe sense than others.

  17. Great video. Thanks for clear, quick explanations and no BS.

  18. One of the greatest videos I’ve ever seen

  19. Please address people with respect. "Hey guys" is brutally presumptious. Anything wrong with "Welcome", "Hello", "Greetings" …?

  20. Just don't blunder mate in 1 like me and you're good

  21. Thank you very much. It was very interesting.

  22. thought it would be an old wise chess guy. clickbait

  23. Hey Nelson, thank you for the video. I've just started learning Chess and this video gave me principles to follow. I'll be watching all the other videos. You have one more subscriber! Hasta la próxima, amigo.

  24. All basic, but all good reminders. Nice and clearly explained.

  25. I don't agree that much early castling of king like shown in this video because opponent can concentrate his all pieces towards that corner after that . according to me we have to suspense the opponent in which side we are going to castle

  26. Brilliant – principle 35: you might need to ignore the principles and rules – that’s the one for me !

  27. Lost me when you didn’t pin the knight with the Queen -.-

  28. I just try to think like Agent Mahone😂😂
