CAUTION: This Rapid chess video may put you to sleep #2

I’m back again with another rapid chess video that may once again put you to sleep. The time controls for this 1 hour and 57 minute event is 10 minutes per player without any increment. I joined the event about 15 minutes late. Here is the first video of this type:

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.

  1. Falling asleep to chilled rapid/standard games is my most consistent way to achieve sleep. So glad you’re still making more of these thanks Jerry!

  2. Asmr chess. I never finished your vids always finished sleeping after 15 minutes 😂 best chess channel

  3. Rapid and Classical are scarce, but those are the videos I like the most.
    Thank you for this video. I hope there will be more. Thanks, Jerry!

  4. Thank you very enjoyable to watch and listen as you consider as many possibilities as you can. I did fall asleep but was able to back track and resume where I left off. Finished watching as I ate breakfast, I wonder if your games help with digestion as well as insomnia. I’ll let you know.

  5. come for the chess commentary, stay because I fell asleep and the video kept playing

  6. One can fall asleep and then resume the video the next morning. It is worthwhile. Game 3 is a masterpiece

  7. I have problems with my sleeping patterns. However these videos have changed my life. Thanks for letting me sleep again like a baby and teach me chess in the meantime.
    Really, I love your vids.

  8. Update: had two nights trouble falling asleep. Watched this and delivered the title 🙂

  9. Been sleeping on this video for a month already. Best siestas ever.

  10. Jerry’s soothing voice puts me to sleep even during a 1-minute tournament.

  11. Halfway through, and it’s good. I just like when you do the format with more postgame analysis; so that, eg you can point to some piece, useless throughout, and say “Look at this clown here, what’s he doin?”

  12. Jerry you have literally saved me an entire bottle of melatonin.

  13. Used to put your videos on so i can learn chess and sleep better

  14. Hi Jerry I’ve always liked your videos 😃

  15. Why does everyone fall asleep to these videos? I watch them in the morning to energise myself!

  16. I put this on and thought "It's been so long since Jerry posted a rapid chess video, there's no way I'm falling asleep right now!" – I was out before move 12

  17. 7:31
    I almost missed the cameo in the bottom right corner, there. 🤣

  18. Jerry is one of few Youtubers who understand that long intros are more of an annoyance and time-waster than anything else. I really like that little beep of yours! Have a good one!

  19. Enjoyed that Jerry. I work nights and this helped me through another sleepless night. Keep up the good work.

  20. These have put me to sleep in the past. This one is for while I do dishes and cook diner 🙂

  21. Hi Jerry. I don’t know if you always manage to read through all the comments, but I think here’s a little idea you may like. Your channel has been around for some 14-15 years, and you’ve covered wins by every official and FIDE WC except for Emanuel Lasker, so maybe you could please cover one of his wins? He has had a strong influence on the game, from his beautiful performances at St. Petersburg 1909, London 1899, New York 1893 (where he, like Fischer later, scored a perfect score, 13/13), to his influence on the importance of defense in chess, being a well-rounded player, and saving lost games and winning drawish ones. He’s a very instructive master to watch, and it would be great if after all these years you finally covered one of his wins instead of his losses, like has been done a few times already on this channel.

    Thank you very much, and please really do consider this. 🙏🙏 Thanks.

  22. I watched the entire thing and am still not asleep. Can i get my money back on this?

  23. please make more titled arena commentaries.

  24. Jerry I hope your chess videos continue to be played forever

  25. Oh what the hell.?…….please bro just stop this right now bro……stop drifting off into random thoughts while we all wait for the next move bro….ur killing us bro….please just stop this.

  26. Now i have a playlist? Im sleeping til the morning after 😅

  27. You must have a really strong binding with your mouse, you complain about it for years! 😁

  28. I just went to check Venda_Gambit, the account has been closed 😉 Don't know if he was a cheater or not but some of those moves looked very hard for the little 2100 I am

  29. For a chess enthusiast, dreaming to become a chess master, I cannot emphasis enough how valuable it is to listen to a chess master’s inner voice while playing chess games, and understand how they think.

    It’s just invaluable.

    Thank you, Jerry. After many years, you are now like a very good friend to me.
