About this video:
This is a rating climb series (or speedrun) where I play games against players from different rating levels, starting at 600 and working all the way up to 2200. In this video I play players in the 800 to 1000 range. I try to focus on the thought process behind the moves I’m making. You will learn all sorts of chess strategies, chess tactics, chess ideas, and chess concepts. I talk about how to think during a chess game and what the thought process should be.


  1. I think at the end 27:48 the opponent could play knight to g5 that protect the checkmate & save the knight

  2. You make it seem so easy, when I play I get myself all muddled up and into lots of weird positions. I think I need to trade more and get better at end games.

  3. I’m surprised we didn’t match up in this level lol

  4. I mentioned this last video i faced weaker players almost at 1100 than this 900ish ones, it feels so random. Ps: Also nice tip about not giving up the open file to the opponent rooks, im consuming a lot of chess content lately and its the first time i saw someone explaining that

  5. These videos are really great because we get insights from your thought processes — up to a point. In almost every game you run low on time, leaving us to watch you mop up and quickly win the game. That's not what we came for. So I would suggest that you please play 10 minute games instead. πŸ™‚

  6. Can you make video how to pass the Candidates Master (CM)?

  7. I like the way you explain your moves, it really helps understand why top players play the moves they play πŸ™‚

  8. Great video with good insights, thanks. Petty that your opponent resigned so suddenly, since it seemed that they played quite well, or was it because of time pressure?

  9. was really interesting thanks for this video

  10. Your video and explaining moves are great. Keep going! πŸ˜€

  11. You teach so well compared to others. I've recently subscribed your channel and I can see the difference. Thank you so much!!!!

  12. Summary:
    If I do this, he does that,..then I do this …unless he does that.
