  1. Who's your best Chess player?
    Me: Hikaru and Hikaru ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜‡

  2. You need to go to a speed reading course, and a speed talking course while at it….. LOL
    Thanks for the vid

  3. Thanks Hikaru I captured a knight towards the center rather than the queen away from the center

  4. why levy has 2,3 milion vievs and hikaru one of the best players rn has 0,5 milion vievs

  5. Hikaru really never fails to teach us! Nice London โ™Ÿ๏ธ

  6. I need to watch his lesson videos on 0.5 speed, but it's cool it's a normal speed after all ๐Ÿ˜†

  7. am I the only one who watches hikaru's videos at 0.5 speed?

  8. I really like Hikaru's lecture. Very well spoken.

  9. levy said not to trade bishop on f4 instead slide it to g3 and if black's bishop takes your bishop you simply take it back with pawn to g3 opening h file for the rook

  10. I started the video, turned to take a drink and he was 10 layers deep in theory. Slow down bro, not all of us can keep up ๐Ÿ˜‚

  11. I'm using the jobova London opening and i always lose if they don't fall for the free rook on turn 5 trick ๐Ÿ˜‚ my problem is i didn't understand the London i just liked that trap. I can always retreat back into the London if the trap fails lol i guess i should have learned the London b4 the jobava London lol my elo is 600 so yeah….
    Im learning

  12. Two bishops >Two knights
    One knight > one bishop?
    Is that the math?

  13. I totally love the fact that one of the greatest chess players of all time is out trying to teach the rest of us, thanks a bunch!!!

  14. Lol Hikaru dresses like he was born in an island. Which last I checked was true.

    Puertorricans approve!

    Im mad at the Botezs for making fun of people who use tropical shirts. Itโ€™s only lame if Americans not born on islands wear it ๐Ÿ™„

  15. u go too fast i need slow calm teacher .. no offensce

  16. Easily my favorite Chess Player. ๐Ÿ’ช Hikkaru

  17. It's amazing hikaru can be so good at being entertaining and also good at chess. 2 skills combined!

  18. In this opening the control over e5, e4 Squares is important

  19. Itโ€™s so cool being able to finally have stockfish explain WHY some moves are brilliant or horrible, instead of just yelling at me all the time

  20. The London is a great opening for average players to lower their Elo by a couple of hundred points.

  21. I love the way you expkain this stuff. Very interesting and educational. Helped me a lot. And I think a big part of helping it stick is your delivery. Like 'put the pony here, then this, this, this and this, then gobble, gobble and you are in a much better position'.

  22. As a beginner I'm so lost everything is moving so fast lol ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜…

  23. H-bomb I thought you HATED the London…I figured that you would prefer the Colle-Zuckertort which seems like an upgraded London, yes? Anything you'd have to say about the Colle-Z would be mandatory viewing for all players.

  24. Iโ€™m going to watch this at half speed. My brain is nowhere near this level. Hats off for the great video!

  25. "What are you watching?"
    Me: Nothing, just watching hikaru drawing arrows on the board.

  26. These nuggets of knowledge are so insightful for us intermediate players

  27. I still don't know the London. Nice game review though.

  28. For a moment i thought at 14:00 that line hangs a pawn because of dxc5 the bishop cannot take the pawn but i realized the bishops trade then the queen takes the pawn. This is probably why the knight goes to d7 and not c6 at 14:02.

  29. Black almost always plays like this against London. I love it, free rating points

  30. He just missed the opportunity to start the video in British accent.

  31. This really helped me learn more about the London from both the sidesโค

  32. Can you speak a bit slowly๐Ÿ˜ฎ?

  33. Iโ€™ve very new to chess, about 6 days into it lol. Iโ€™m absolute trash, I am rated about 750 but this video helped slightly not much but it helped fixed a few of my misses and a blunder I was commonly facing.

  34. After the knights are swapped out on E5 should you take with your D4 pawn?? Iโ€™ve just started playing again and about 5 years ago I was playing London and I think thatโ€™s the line I remember. If anybody can answer I would really appreciate it

  35. We learn a lot of things from Hikaru
    Also we forget everything during the game ๐Ÿฅฒ

  36. It's really useful to listen to the thought processes of high level players like this, thanks!

  37. I hate the London. But I suppose I should watch this video and learn about it some.

  38. Play at 75% speed if you're a noob like me ๐Ÿ˜‚
