๐Ÿ’ Most students gain 200+ points in months:


  1. Would timestamps be helpful after the stream is over? If so, would you prefer games sorted by opening name or by something that happened during the game? Sacrifice, blunder, time trouble, etc.

  2. Hats off ! This'd help me a lot to reach my 1100, just 50 points away now.

  3. Chess ain't hard, but is hard…. I feel that! ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿซถ

  4. Can you analyze what you consider your best game is ever thus far!

  5. Needs time stamps of what level players he played

  6. chess ain't hard ๐Ÿ˜‚. you just have to be a guru psychic

  7. that first game was crazy .. 79 and you still won

  8. You most likely would have lost against admirani, but if you had more time there might have been a draw, but not likely. He was winning.

  9. Today I crossed again 1700. The idea is to get to 2000 in 1 year.

  10. man, please do more of this, for a medium chess player this is gold…the most interesting video for a medium chess player…

  11. Don't worry irun out of ideas ooften in chess.

  12. Realistically 15 minutes on both sides minimum is chess, not speed chess. Double to have time to teach.๐Ÿ˜ข

  13. At least you lose to good players instead of beating unranked players. ๐ŸŽ‰

  14. I do have to admit Nelson at least you play guys as good as you are.

  15. This is more a showcase of your positional intuition than an insight into your thought process. Do you think you could speak more on your calculations? I guess there's only so much you can say in such a short time control.

  16. Real chess master energy throughout! And like how you play those crazy lines. It's entertaining to watch and like you said, more fireworks!

  17. You got so lucky in the game where the guy disconnected, he threw that away, he could have won that if he just pushed his pawn and got another queen.

  18. Amirani86 should have walked her pawn down to get a queen forcing you to trade and then being up queen rather than f'ing around trying to checkmate you – imo

  19. How come he only plays 10 minute games? 15/10 would allow for more calculating of these crazy lines

  20. I was so happy when I reached 1.000, now Iโ€™m upset because Iโ€™m stuck at 1.350 and I donโ€™t know how to get higher. Looks like just watching Nelson doesnโ€™t boost my elo ๐Ÿ˜‚

  21. hi i just wanted to say that your channel is so great and you and your style of analysis is awesome. i actually think that you made mz chess better because i often get into that machine of playing quick moves without taking into account all my possible moves…so you made me slow down and get a grip on the position and it actually pays of. i am in high 1600 elo on lichess and i see the difference betweeen me and my opponent. they almost always play fast but incorrect and i take my time and beat htem in the long run…by just slowing down, and choose the best move i know….so thanks and i think that your havea better channel than gotham chess…he is doing it for the likes and views etc. you on the other hand have that aura of calmness and pure love for the game of chess. dont change a thing. just keep doing what you were doing.

  22. I never understand why people play rapid like bullet – unless it's their prep but here the moves weren't even the best ones.

  23. At about 1:17. Why would you take the qeen sac??? Is queen B7 not mate? Ahh he explained…. Missed that one

  24. Get that shirt made! It's either a great move or its a blunder

  25. can't wait till you became grand master! so you can teach us super GM stuff! ๐Ÿ˜€

  26. 1k like was my! ๐Ÿ˜€ love your videos mostly those games when you explain! learn a lot from you!!!

  27. wait, how to think?, today's school is what to think right?….LOL

  28. I have figured out how Hikaru is thinking. He just says "I guess I'll go… here?" and that's a good move

  29. That game against Aron was crazy, my defense as white would have been Qxh6 and you have to retake because you can't play h3, the queen would just take it so after you take back on h6 you play h3 yourself to blockade the pawn and kick the horsey away. That still would have been a playable (or interesting) position because Nelson would have lost both rooks but the engine defense was insane.

  30. 1:03:25 Nelson laughing at the pawn move after losing the game because he himself didn't play it ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. In these rapids games sometimes you just gotta go with your instinct

  32. Nelson with time is a dangerous combo against other 2200s ๐Ÿ˜œ
