  1. the analogy of a king being like a baby was poetic

  2. Cheating isn't a big issue on either platform – except in anonymous casual. That's just wild.

  3. Kings have to be treated like a baby but eventually they grow up and help in an endgame has me thinking of potential chess variant where the King gradually gains abilities after certain move number breakpoints. IE start of game it can only move like a pawn. On move 10 it learns how to castle, move 20 it can move like a traditional king, every 10 moves after that it can move an additional square per turn. In order to prevent added king mobility to make checkmate impossible have to retain the king can't move through check rule. I'm not sure of specifics just first idea that came to mind of a king starting out even weaker than normal and eventually becoming almost as powerful as a queen that still can't move through check.

  4. at 28:25… you should take that pawn with that trapped knight, so it dies with great style! 😀

  5. This is the type of content I'll never get tired of watching. Also it's Eric Rosen, duh! ❤

  6. You have the best chess content out there. Thanks Eric!

  7. openings may be dubious, but endgame instruction is immaculate 😀

  8. I am so freaking happy that you dropped a 2 hour long instructive Chess video!

  9. Eric is the perfect combination of calculating and "fuck it, let's do it".

  10. " rooks on half open files, have half smiles" -Eric Rosens book of chess tongue twisters

  11. "I'm going to turn off my keyboard."

    30 seconds later:

    "Why is my keyboard not working?"

  12. The King gambit game was quite a rollercoaster till the endgame.
