  1. Thank you for teaching me that beacaues I am becoming better player

  2. That time management one is real. God help the person that played 30 min chess with me recently. The dude was in a very winning position because I pea-brained and hung my queen (the selfish-brain in very much effect there), but blundered it all, because he was just too slow. He stalled setting his opener, thought too long on every move and I knew I could take advantage of this as soon as things got bad for me. I played very passive, so that eventually he'd start making alot of blunders trying to make up time. Eventually I restabilized enough that by the time he was on his last 15 seconds and really wanted to promote to make up for all the mistakes, I just used my knight to run his king in circles until his time ran out. For greater context on the time-difference, I won the game with like 7: 48 on the clock. I can't deny it felt dirty and I can only imagine the feeling you'd get when you spent like 52 minutes watching a winning position slip out of your control due to time. It was the moment when I couldn't laugh at another "Lose at chess" video with a clear conscience again, because that match felt like it belonged in that series, I played so atrociously and somehow got away with it.

  3. The FINAL mistake should be detailed in this video FIRST.
    Mental health, happiness, addiction, dopamine feed & addiction, self worth and confidence can ALL be affected by the way people play, tilt, misunderstand..

  4. When you start making just 1 blunder per game instead of 5 😎

  5. you werent even looking for it🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  6. In tournament games I sometimes completely blunder winning opening advantages …Last time it happen in Vienna …He fall for it and retreat the knight …still I lose even with time advantage..

  7. Mistake #2: its just a game bro calm down. Ur playing for fun. Don't forget that.

  8. Then what should we move, sometimes i spend 5 minutes thinking about a move there is not one, it happens in mid game.

  9. Me after watching this video:
    ELO goes up from 380-405
    Me: I've beaten chess

  10. What a fabulous no nonsense straight forward lesson. How many of us said ‘yep I do that’ , and that, and that lol. Laughed at myself the entire vid. Thank you so much!

  11. ok you might me not the best player but your clearly the best coatch

  12. There are no mistakes, just happy little accidents- Bob Ross

  13. Yesterday, I was playing a game that I felt I played fairly nicely. Thought out my moves, set up traps, even had a few decent pins.

    Until I hung my queen, near the end. Shortly thereafter I resigned.

    The wrath and disappointment of Levy I've incurred looms over me. 😅😂😭😭😭

    I WILL BE BETTER FOR YOU TEACHER

  14. My mistakes are:
    Fake Training
    Same Errors

    Thanks, Levy

  15. Me after watching you grandmaster I'm coming for you

  16. "By the end of 12 moves, half the armies were gone and did not know what the heck is going on"…….LOL you got me rolling by this statement. so funny

  17. You need to trade a knight to play the Halloween gambit

  18. In mistake 2 he says to recite these setups, but how do you find a place to teach you that?

  19. Thanks for the video Levy I am guilty of mistake 7 for sure! Can anyone please explain why I can beat chess ai with an elo of 1800 but lose to chess ai with an elo of 1300?

  20. 16:52 let's play a game: what would you play? Leave your move in the comment below.

    My own first instinct is queen h6.

  21. a definitely instructive video. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found several areas of my chess need serious work. My biggest issue is not surveying the WHOLE board when making my move, and noticing my blunder just AFTER I hit the "submit" button. I'm also guilty of "fake training", learning only the beginning moves of openings and not the variations or replies. I totally love the way you put your comments out, very animated, and with feeling. I watch only YOUR videos. I can relate to yours more than any others.

  22. Levi seemed like a disappointed father after his son got smoked in a wrestling match

  23. You were literally talking about me the whole time😂

  24. Can make a video about 15 minutes rapid player on how to get more than 400 elo pls???

  25. That last bit about tilt is so true, i remember i was on a strong winning streak, won like 7 games in a row, got overconfident made a stupid mistake and hung my queen haha then… got mad and raged through 6 losses in a row and was right back to where i started on my winning streak lol took a breather and got back to it

  26. Thanks for the tips they really helped

  27. This is dumb I use these strats with a few games and got mated multiple times. I never won a single game this is a horrid strategy. People say practice more because this is just 3-4 games. I also tried your other strats 3-4 times
    .This doesn’t work

  28. I like the imagining lines advise the most

  29. Thank You So Much Bro, Now Im Going For Magnus Carlsen.

  30. Okay, I really think that Chess is a scam that someone made super complex for the purpose of selling how to not lose miserably.

  31. 'this game is suck i gonna delete it!!'
    meanwhile 5 minuets later i think know what mistake i made before lets instal it again!!!!

  32. So there's no hidden bishop on the Z file… It's just me not looking?? 😮😮

  33. 6:14 "All you gotta do is just not get mated." Ahhhhh, now I understand chess! I was playing all wrong. LOL

  34. newbies try trading everything attempting to turn a chess game into a … tic-tac-toe 🙂

  35. Interesting points, but I feel your focus on what/how to do better is a bit lacking (I guess because it's much simpler for you).
    I mean that saying don't do this and that is fine as identifying some type of errors, but to make it a better lesson give us a tool how to stop doing these mistakes (for example the thing you said about the mental arrows from opponent's pieces to where they hit was good).
    Otherwise advices like "don't do…" will only increase anxiety without focusing on anything useful.
