  1. I am 2500 🎉🎉 but in online chess I just crossed 2800 today😂😂
    It's such a good feeling when u are watching these types of videos and actually guessing all the correct moves 😂😂

  2. I am sweating my balls off trying to calculate all the potential variations and you just say we can stop here white is clearly winning while i am looking for that mate in 12 moves

  3. My result 2500 In first 30s .. but my elo is 900 rapid 😂

    I can improve my rating but I don't have time and source to study chess opining…

    So my Q is

    Can I study the famous chess opining in month

    My another Q

    Is it necessary to study opining to improve my elo or what i should do?

  4. Recently i reached 1000 elo and now i am stuck here can someone give me some tips in middle and end games because i blunder always there can someone recommend me tactics for trapping my opponents

  5. I got 1800, didn't realize the opponent was in zugzwang so didn't get 2100, but thought the queen move looked best just out of intuition so I got 2500 😂😂 but I didn't calculate it so I'll stick with 1800

  6. I’m almost 2000 and got 2100 but why would I calculate a queen blunder for 2500 it just seems completely winning so it’s just winning (also I only spent 30 seconds on the puzzle)

  7. 1800. I'm ~1600 daily games and ~1000 blitz (I'm too slow it seems)

  8. I'm 1036 elo in rapid.but I got 1600 elo rating in this puzzle

  9. my current rating is 1206, my puzzle rating is 2800 but base on this I am 1600-1800. interesting..

  10. Damn this thing got me pretty dead on at 1600

  11. as a 3100 rated in puzzles player i solved it in 3 minutes (im 1500 in rapid)

  12. Dangg I'm 1922 rated rapid in online , but I got 1800 😂, I didn't even notice that black was on zugzwang 😂 , I gotta work on my visualisation ❤

  13. I got to 1800 elo, kinda accurate since I'm 1800 rated on rapid so quite good

  14. at my good days i can play as a 1500 rated, but in bad days i always blunder. And i like your videos about punish unsound openings. Now peoples never play scholars mate or pins my knight. That queen F6 is very interesting. I always go most forward with my pieces so perhaps i would had found that without any calculations.

  15. My rapid rating is 2400+
    And i solve this 5-10 sec

  16. Hi, Igor! As I am on my journey for 2200 ELO (Master Level), I have been working on Rook Endgame puzzles. The reason is to enhance my skills in this position.

  17. I saw Qe5 immediately and then discounted it in favour of hanging the rook. So 500 elo then (1400 in reality). I really love these videos by the way chess is so fucking beautiful.

  18. I did see the check as the best move but i didnt see the best move for black I thought it is a forced checkmate
    But when you told me about the best move for black i only calculated the white winning a pone version
    So i can see my self as 1300 at best

  19. I am a 3+0 Blitz player with an on-line Blitz rating of Elo 1900-2000 (Elo 2078 is my current pick). In this puzzle I reached Elo 1800.

    Thank you so much Igor and please, bring more of these Elo calculating puzzles!

    All the best,

    Marco
    EarlyJaques

  20. In today's inflation, I am 3000 now 😅

  21. ok. so i am a delusional 800. that‘s fine lol

  22. Qe5+:
    1)Kg8 Re8+ QXe8 QXe8+ Kg7 QXd7
    2)Kf8 Qf6:
    a)QXe7 Qh8#
    b)RXe7 Qh8#
    c)Qe8 RXe8+
    d)Kg8 QXf7+ Kh8 QXh7#
    3)Kh6 Qf4+:
    a)g5 Qf6+ Kh5 g4+ Kh4 Qh6#
    b)Kg7 QXf7+:
    I.)Kh8 QXh7#
    II.)Kh6 Qf4+:
    g5 Qf6+ Kh5 g4+ Kh4 Qh6#
    Kh5 Qg4+ Kh6 Qh4#
    4)Kh5 g4+ Kh3 g5+:
    a)KXh3 Qg3#
    b)Kh5 Qg4#

    That's all, what I calculated. I'm 1885 fide.

  23. my rating is 1000 elo and I saw all that until 2500 elo in 1min
    how is that happened !!!!!!

  24. I am currently 998 rated and I always manage to perform really well in your puzzles, but I don't know why I end up blundering in my games. Please tell me why?

  25. I love these videos with puzzle with different layers !!

    I got to 1800 on that one
    Being 2000 rapid and 1700 blitz / bullet

    Quite acurate I would say

    I missed that Qf6 move, I thought I had to trade that rook but black actually cant take it, very nice !

  26. 2500😍.but my real elo right now is 1700+

  27. I Love Your Videos.And Your Father's Day Discount.Thank You.

  28. Bullet players laugh in the face of blinders 😂
