  1. 1:06:05 this guy must have been a cheater, knight to f5 is almost impossible to find. 1:03:50 but you burned a lot of time on this move

  2. So far..imo..your instructive theory/teaching has helped the most. Thx, Stafford Gambit! I have also learned cheaters cant play at a fast passed game as easily especially blitz. #COE

  3. I made a New Years resolution to start going to bed earlier….and then I found your channel

  4. "Exercise my right to castle" sounds very American

  5. "it's probably fine" – Eric, castling into opponent's advanced queenside pawn storm

  6. Just a twitch question. When someone gifts 5 subs, does it basically mean they are donating $25? Since each sub is $5, if I'm not mistaken?

  7. So funny, the draw arrow incident. lol

  8. I think what you are playing Eric Rosen is the Paulsen variation. Taimanov does not have the pawn to a6, but rather queen to c7. I also prefer the Paulsen, or the Sicilian Kan.

  9. Another stream with no London 😊 thank you bro🎉

  10. I wish I could gain elo without playing any games!

  11. Big shout-out to okda45 for taking out an IM with an incredible knight sac!

  12. Good that Lichess noticed and banned those players. I don't agree with Kramniks recent endeavours but I do think cheating in online chess is an ongoing disease that is seriously threatening the existence of the whole format. Thankful for the moderators and others responsible for the major chess sites for their work on keeping the integrity of the game we all love intact ❤

  13. How can you be better than 100% of rapid players? That would make you the best on lichess

  14. Eric: There’s a funny line = opponent’s about to get massacred
    Eric: I don’t know what to do = Oh well a loss is a learning experience

  15. Lol i thought he was referring to the more common 'rice cooker gambit' (as seen on chess vibes channel)
