  20. i have watch your you tube real cool stuff i am 1400 an up

  21. you should speak slow, and explain very slow

  22. Is studying your games like this worth doing when you're basically a total beginner? I have not memorized any main lines or all of that. Just learning how to win against like 800 level players haha

  23. Can anyone tell me how can i learn chess openings and basic chess ideas for free online?

  24. Thank you. My uncle showed me how the pieces moved when I was 9 years old.(57 years ago) Since then, up to this last year. I thought I was really good.

  29. Do you still talk so fast in your courses?

  30. I will never get used to hearing my name in chess videos, especially opening videos

  31. I guess the only thing that was not answered here was "how to study the openings" meaning, should you read and memorize it , or just repeat the moves on board or if u wana practice certain opening where and how to do it ?! and so on…

  32. I feel like openings are one of those things where u have to learn all of them and their variations in order to actually be able to use any of them. Because if u don’t, a lot of the times u will say to urself “Wait, ur not suppose to do that.” And then everything goes to shit.

  33. At what rating would you say people graduate from just needing to stop blundering basic stuff, to really needing to study in order to grow? As a former scholastic coach, at what point did you start telling your students to do this?
