CAUTION: This Rapid chess video may put you to sleep #8

I late-join an Hourly Rapid Arena and share my train of thought as I play 4 games with time control 10+0. This arena began on April 15th, 2024 at 10:00 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. 😊 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.

  15. This Rapid video DID put me to sleep. Thank you Jerry❀️

  16. Hey Jerry. You're awesome. That is all. Thank you.

  17. That last game you brilliantly refuted a quite common but diabolical trap in that variation so well, it was thrilling to watch! I learned so much.

  18. I do love Jerry playing the rapid time controls.

    The second opponent smelled fishy toward the end though…

  19. Great games Jerry!

  20. As always, super instructive and fun to watch.

  21. Hi Jerry, can you upload more candidates recaps? would highly appreciate it

  22. That was fun to watch jerry. I love hearing your thoughts, the last game was fine play by both decided really by time at the end. Thanks.

  23. This proves the biggest difference between high level players and lower ones is the credit they give their opponents. 300 ELO, ok I don't understand this move, let me take 5 minutes to try to figure out what it's doing. Me, that move is garbage and does nothing and he's crap 300 ELO so it can't mean anything. I can play anything and win here. Plays anything and hangs a queen.
