CAUTION: This Rapid chess video may put you to sleep #7

I late-join an Hourly Rapid Arena and share my train of thought as I play 5 games with time control 10+0. This arena began on February 20th, 2024 at 7:01 PM EDT. Many viewers over the years have expressed that these slower time control games act as a sleep aid. You may find that watching these rapid games may help you to improve your chess or help you to reach the rapid eye movement stage of sleep. Enjoy either way. ๐Ÿ˜Š

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. king jerry has finally uploaded another caution warning video, W

  2. Iโ€™m bout to nap so fuckin hard, thx Jerry

  3. In the first game, 7. hxg4! Qxh1 8. Ne2 followed by 9. Ng3 trapping the queen is a really satisfying line

  4. I love these types of videos. Your thought processes are valuable.

  5. I watch these videos when I go to bed. It literally takes me about a week to watch a full video ๐Ÿ˜‚

  6. Jerry, you should consider reading classic audiobooks. For real, I'd pay for you to put me to sleep that way.

  7. That was good to watch. Thanks Jerry

  8. Yay! Love that youโ€™re making more of these. Thatโ€™s another week of sleep sorted ๐Ÿ˜Š

  9. Not a fan of this new chess set though itโ€™s harder on the eyes I thinkโ€ฆ

  10. Wanted to sleep, but I happened to watch the whole thing instead… and wow. So satisfying to see you win the first 4 games under 20 moves, especially with such a calm composure. No fancy moves, no book traps, just elegant thinking.
    Thank you for the "awakeness", Jerry ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I wish everybody happy evening in these socialist times where people dont talk much to each other ๐Ÿ™

  12. Babe wake up, jerry just posted a video ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  13. Yay! Friday night and Jerry just published a new put you to sleep video. I love these! Thank you, Jerry.

  14. So not interested in watching you play opponents rated 1000 points below you.

  15. Your voice makes me sleepy ๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ’ค

  16. I woke up and seen this video. Couldn't wait to work a 12 hr shift so I can watch it to fall asleep. It didn't disappoint. Insanely relaxing to fall asleep too…

  17. Don't call it chess that" may put you to sleep". Call it 'soothing chess'. Something no other chess channel can boast!

  18. Good to see you still making new videos ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I absolutely love watching these at night. Will I fall asleep? Will I stay awake? Itโ€™s the REM gambit.

    Thanks for this public service.

  20. It is honestly very good to watch before bed, instructive too of course.

  21. That 2nd game checkmate was very satisfying and educational. A pawn so deep in your territory should not be ignored like your opponent did.

  22. Excellent video, but failed to put me to sleep. Too educational and entertaining perhaps? ๐Ÿ˜Š

  23. I can confirm this video can pu

  24. You know what would be cool? If it were possible to rank players on lichess by number of novel games played.

    Then people could compete and try to play the as yet unplayed games.
