  1. I am 1068 elo i will comeback here in 2025 and will become 2000 elo

  2. a lot of things to do: tease you sister πŸ™‚

  3. – Start with tactical training: solving puzzles (0:27)

    – Focus on attacking moves and forcing moves in tactics (1:21)

    – Analyze your games with an engine to identify mistakes (3:44)

    – Prioritize studying openings to ensure a good start (6:42)

    – If short on time, pick one or two key activities (9:30)

    – If more time is available, allocate extra time to playing/analysis and studying (10:01)

  4. Chess Study Plan (30 minutes)
    1.) Tactics = 5 mins
    2.) Play & Analyze = 10 – 15 mins
    3. Study vhess = 10 – 15 mins

    Chess Study Plan (1 Hour)

    3.) Study chess = 30 mins

  5. Qa5, bishop is pinned and mate is coming next move with no way to prevent.

  6. What chest engine computer game do you play to teach you? Which is the best moves

  7. 2:52 1. Qh5 Bxc4 2. g6 Bxf4 (it's M1 anyways so might aswell take the pawn with you) 3. Qh7 or Qh8#

  8. 2:50 1.g6 Bxc4 2.Rh8+ Kxh8 3.Qh5+ Kg8 4.Qh8#
    If any other move there's also 2.Rh8+
    If 1.g6 Re8 2.gxf7+ Kf8 3.Rh8+ Ke7 4.Qe1+ and there's a big attack.

  9. In he puzzle, what happens if black responds Q-C6?

  10. My best chess trick is techno music. (thanks Brahs). Not being emotionally/mentally sharp and aggressive has always been my biggest issue that stops me from looking for value, keeping open minded (of what my opponent is up to) and seeing patterns. Some repetitive music keeps me on an even keel emotionally. Probably chewing gum would work too.

  11. ❀❀❀❀

  12. I am new to chess, and I have a question. You talked about accessing swordfish. Exactly how do we access swordfish software?

  13. i think it’s g6 with a rook sac on h8 then follow up with queen a1-h7#

  14. For the puzzle: like others, my first instinct was Qh5, but what about g6 first? If you play Qh5 first, black can capture the light squared bishop on c4 and you miss out on mate either way. If you play g6, black does one of two things. They either see what's coming and play Rfe8 or they don't and play bxc4. Either way, following with Qh5 ensures the king can't escape b/c the pawn on g6 will control that f7 square if the bishop moves.

  15. Time 2.52 g6 (to lock in Q) then rook+ then Q+ then Qh7

  16. pawn to g6. Bishop is pinned. Idea is to then sack rook at h8 followed by queen check and queen to h7 protected by pawn for mate. It wont matter if bishop captures your bishop because your pawn now occupies square and king cant retreat. Thats my guess for solution

Have to say this video might have not helped me becose I didint follow it but I did manage to hit from 400 to 1000 in few months on my own so if you people do practise like he says I think yall can hit even more then you think.

  26. pawn g6, opponent plays random move (doesn't matter, its forced mate in 3), we go rook h8, king takes rook forced, queen h5, king moves back, queen h7 mate
