CAUTION: This Rapid chess video may put you to sleep #3

I’m back with another rapid chess video that may yet 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 45 minutes late. In this session, I played what felt like 3.5 games while sharing my train of thought along the way.

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. Good evening Jerry! Goodnight Jerry. Sleep tight.

  2. Thanks these are very enjoyable to watch I hope you like doing them, although not finishing when the outcome is not determined is I think frustrating.

  3. Game 1 had no captures until after move 40

  4. What am I supposed to do with the other hour and ten minutes?
    😛 rock on, Mr Jerry

  5. Jerry is to chess , what Barry white is to music

  6. Yay new bedtime material. When I wake up I'll rewind to watch what I missed!

  7. That first game was amazing! Love the positional chess play. You really controlled your opponent’s options!

  8. is it suspicious that 13hundred player making that Nb5 move in the Scandy game, i wonder… he got just 70 games on Lichess. weird.

  9. Nice one Jerry,I think the early draw offer and resignation out of the blue means an interruption for your opponent. If that happens to me I offer a draw and then resign when I must leave. Thanks and keep up the good work.

  10. Very relaxing watch. Hope the obvious cheater gets banned

  11. About the 1300 mysterious case… I've been there, you can only take so long before playing like this and you feel like a blunder is coming. I learned nowadays to not give up on games like this, but the pressure is immense.

  12. I think everyone enjoys every time you get a chance to upload any new content Jerry ,
    Thanks again !

  13. Even after watching you for years, including your bullet games, I still find myself shouting at the screen when you are below a minute and you take 15 seconds going back and forth on a move 😀

  14. At minute 30:50 you had Bxg3 and they can't take because of fxg3 Nxg3 the Queen moves and you win the exchange with the fork on e2, right? Always interesting to see your games and listening to your train of thoughts!

  15. You’re the best Jerry. I love your zeal and yes your voice pattern is very soothing. You could make a business making recordings of positive affirmations to assist people to drift off to sleep In a good mental state. No kidding Jerry. Give it some thought. You have a real God given talent.

  16. Just making a comment for the yt algorithm… jerry the best!

  17. This is really nice to watch right before bed, very relaxing, thank you for the video.

  18. Jerry = my first chess channel subscription years ago.
    Back when I said to myself (and to others) " youtube is well suited for chess content "
    Little did I know…

  19. 4am and no sleep last night either, thanks for the assist Jerry, teaching me chess and helping with some insomnia and bad habits for a few years now 🙂

  20. Jer-Bear it’s not that your content puts people to sleep or anything. It’s your calm demeanor and mellow tone. You were/are an ASMR pioneer!

  21. Worked like a charm, woke up to the end of the video and droped a like.

  22. I am rated 2100 on lichess rapid too and this guy played terrible chess

  23. Doctors should be prescribing this video to insomniacs. 5/5 will sleep again

  24. Putting a disgusting system time player down first game I approve 👍👍👍

  25. Thank you Jerry for another awesome video! I love watching one of your rapid games before playing one of my own – I find it very instructive to hear how you think through the positions. It definitely helps prevent me from blitzing out silly blunders early on.

  26. I used this massive pawn center idea in a blitz game of my own recently and got a crushing position against my opponent!

  27. There's something incredibly satisfying about watching you slow play and grind down the extremely passive, almost just waiting, first opponent. 35 moves without a capture. Just absolutely brutal space taking.

  28. Jerry are you gonna make a video about the recent drama?

  29. These are my favourite videos of yours, please do more of them

  30. This will be my third time trying to finish this video without falling asleep in the middle. Wish me luck🤞

  31. Wish our government was run so efficiently 👌👌👌👌👌👌😆😆😆

  32. The first is so weird, its rare to see such a dominance of space. Black was choking himself playing so passive.

  33. Im watching this before bed. I hope it works as the title suggests!

  34. I remember all of the moves of the first game. Other games, I have no clue at all

  35. I’m 35 mins in after 3 nights of watching. That’s a pretty efficient job of helping me fall asleep 👌🏻❤
