  1. Great coverage Jerry! Any chance you'll review any of the other games?

  2. Absolutely love the little edits you put in post production, the little slinky video was oddly funny, similar to when you referred to the h2 square as the "Bill Gates square" and put a little image of his face on the square
    it's just the little things that make the difference, great video again

  3. Thanks for your hard work Jerry!  I enjoyed this. 🙂

  4. Thanks for the coverage. I up-voted each video.

  5. Only Jerry would put a video of a slinky in a chess video! Brilliant as always – thanks Jerry!

  6. Please pronounce the names correctly:
    It is RAJA, not ROGER
    It is EE-RUN, not I-RAN

    Love your work.

  7. Thank you so much for putting the efforts and time to make those videos. Those were so much fun to watch as they were very educational as well. The added advantage is that you uploaded the whole 15 rounds for Carlsen in one setting, can't ask for more 🙂

  8. After 15 videos Jerry finally says "take care, bye" and everything feels peaceful 🙂 Thanks Jerry, great videos as always!

  9. I appreciate the effort you put in to these videos. Thank you Jerry!

  10. what does it mean when you say: it is 0.00 move or something like that?

  14. Thank you Jerry for analyzing all 15 rounds of the World Rapid Chess Championship. I enjoyed it! You´re awesome.
    And yes, I´m watching the soccer championship and unfortunately I have to tell you that the USA will lose against us next thursday, so give your best against Portugal, I know you can beat them, you have a good coach;)

  24. Thank you for providing this. Just great 🙂

  25. Thank you so much, Jerry! I watched all 15 in about 2 days! I really appreciate all of the work you put into making these videos! I have been subscribed for about 2 years now and I love every single video you have posted! I went from an 1100 player to about an 1800 one. Many of those rating points should be dedicated to you! 🙂

  26. Love the slinky on the escalator! 🙂

  27. What would have happened if one of the other players who finished with 10.5 points had finished with 11? Is there a tiebreaker system to determine a winner?

  28. Thanks for all the reviews Jerry! Very informative and entertaining. The FIFA World Cup reference had me laughing! Keep up the good work!

  29. Nigerian V Iran soccer game, I agree with you absolutely not much action. Thank you Jerry for the analysis.

  30. He Jerry! Greatings from holland! Just want to let you know that your videos helpt my own game ALLOT!! Thanks, and im keep watching. Greats

  31. Please allow me to mention (after thanking and congatulating for the lessons) that you are  used to this bullit speedy style and you pass the moves so fast sometimes that we dont even have time to pause the video… Please count a second for each move … This allow us to try to guess for next move and makes our life easier

  32. what would have happened if someone else had 11 points too? tie breaker game?

  33. "Nigeria x Iran soccer game"… hehehehehehe It really was boring.

  34. You explain it so beautifully….I got a great interest in exploring about the positional strengths only after watching your videos..Thank you.

  35. 9.Rb8, but Jerry you always say "don't have your pieces watching over pawns, have pawns watching pawns"

  36. Love your videos: Analysis of games is particularly valuable to average rated players (like myself), and your voice and delivery are soothing.
