Today when i woke up i played on chess free level 9 which equates to about 1700 elo., in professional mode, so no take backs of any kind. 27 moves later the computer resigned. There is no way i could have done that a year ago, and this journey i took was guided very much by your videos. You have a natural talent , dont let it go to waste. Ooo and teach me more hehe. Reply Youre awesome and your videos are great! Thanks! Reply Your videos are very well made, you explaing things clearly and your videos are direct to the point and very informative and detailed, so thanks and keep it up ! Reply fereque kelley thank you sir for you breif explanation you ideas are great Reply Dereque, please explain me the problem of central majority. I'm struggling to find an answer but i cant find it. I don't understand where is the power of 2-1 central majority. flank pawns can also attack central squares. also, you aren't talking about any possibilities of white getting 2 to 1 central majority in queen's gambit declined where white can capture the black's D pawn with white's C pawn. Same goes for grunfeld. Guess for some reason, in those 2 openings that doesn't take place in anything. Explain Reply Hey Dereque, please please crw Reply Most people I have played with white against, actually miss the move. 2…. d5. Reply At 5.35 why isn't c4 a good move for white? Reply Another wonderful explanation of a chess opening — thank you, Dereque! Reply Can you make a video on how to attack against an "opening" where black places his pawns as a3 b4 c3 d4 e3 f4 g3 h4? I know this isn't a real opening, but I can't find many flaws. Reply Very informative video, thank you ! Reply good! video thx Reply Dereque I love your smile! Great and instructive lessons. Reply just to sacrifice and make the king out of step! 15:01 the Bishop takes f7 check!, king x f7, then pd4 to d5 check, knight takes d5, Knight g5 check, k to d7, Q takes d5. Reply at 14:14 why not move Bishop to D2 protecting the rook, and attacking queen at the same time? Reply Great thanks much! just had to count the squares on few occcasions ) Reply I love this site. Awesome. Reply KIITOS!! THANK YOU!! Reply Just in case it hasn't been mentioned, at 14:37 Qd2 is better then the pawn taking on c3. Reply spotted a couple of errors by the teacher disappointingly Reply Im getting back into chess again and this is definitely the go to site.No boring preamble and cuts to the chase.Well presented by a cheery soul who knows his stuff!! Reply Hey man, your lessons in openings are all amazing, thank you so much! Reply You are a great chess explainer and perhaps one of the best teacher of chess I have ever seen Reply great vid.. thanks Reply Dereque! Do you know some games about 3:34' s variation? This is a playable game for white? For black? What do you think about 5. …- e7-e5 move in this setup? Thats all! 🙂 Wait your answer if you have a lot of time, István. Reply at 6:04, is it possible to retake the d4 pawn with the knight and avoid the isolated pawn? Nxd4 Bxe2 Nxe2 or Nxd4 Nxd4 Bxd4 Bf5 Reply THANKS SOOOOO MUCH, Going to all-ontraio's soon and i needed a good defence for black Reply great thank you sir Reply your the best Reply GM Finegold did a video on chess.com showing two games where he plays Nf3 on move two before playing c3. Then after black plays d6 and Nf6 attacking e4 white just plays Be2 hoping black captures the enprise pawn on e4. When white plays Qa4 check winning the pawn. Whatdo you say about making a video in this line? Love your videos Dereque! Reply I mean winning the knight. Reply This is old info. Misses many current theory moves. Reply So basically your giving up the queens pawn for attacking like a gambit right? Reply is o kelly sicillian variation yours? Reply 15:03 is it not possible to take on f7 and after King takes pkllay e6 ? Reply I was hoping all shift that when I got home there'd be a Dereque Kelley video on the Sicillian w/ c3. An excellent night cap with a mug of hot chocolate . . . thanks! Reply An isolated queens…what? Reply I watched this video a few months ago and thought it was good. Recently, I nearly got crushed as black against this 2.c3 variation of the Sicilian and spent 25+ moves defending until finally I got some relief and won the game. Now, I see this video again and I'm baffled at how deep the theory goes and how I could have better prepared for 2.c3. Thanks again for an awesome instructional chess video! Reply I can't wait to play this line against an opponent who doesn't know it so well lol… especially after the queen's pawn situation Reply I really love your clear explanations. So clear and straightforward! Reply You explain like a true strategist. Most other Chess videos will do well in bringing up the typical moves and responses, and show a few moves into each line to see what happens, but they fail to explain the big picture strategy behind them. That is why I love your videos, they help me to understand the purpose behind the openings and main lines, so if an opponent responds differently than expected, I'm still able to keep the main objective in mind and intuitively play along. This I think is far more effective and fun than simply memorizing each and every possible move without even knowing why those moves are played. Reply Is this the Alapin Variation? Reply Great videos. It's unfortunate but I find that people rarely play as elegantly as you . Most of my opponents are often very aggressive. Reply could you make a video on how to play AGAINST the Marshall attack? Reply Very good explanation. Thanks Reply make video to play against queens gambit Reply شكرا باللغة العربية انت الافضل Reply #Friendship _is _all _about _three _things _winning _losing _and _sharing.# Winning your _friends _heart losing yourself_ ego _and _sharing _joys _and _sorrows.!!!❤❤💜❤💙💚This_Year_Once_More_Lest_Going_ #Togather_Guys 👌😍😍 Reply Thanks for your chess contribution Reply Comments navigation Newer comments Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
