  6. Since you said don't spend money below 1000 do you still recommend the gold membership for unltd puzzles or did you use sth else? Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Inspiring! Watching on Day 1. Shall report back. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  9. I go from 400 elo to 1800 elo in 7 months?!

  10. 4/5/24 – I'll be back here when my Elo is 801

  11. ELO at zero is a person that does not know how to play chess. Anyone that knows how to play is rated at least eight hundred.

  12. Really enjoy watching this videoโ€ฆplease make more videos bro and show us your current reportouire.

  13. Gary Kasparov or Bobby Fischer didn't go from 0 to 1700 in one year. It's not possible: progress in chess is necessarily gradual.
    Simulating such an unlikely ascent will make for an interesting narrative on Youtube though, and gain lots of lucrative subscribers. So it's all good.


  15. Iโ€™m trying to improve and I love your content. Itโ€™s okay if you donโ€™t but Iโ€™ve been a loyal viewer.

  16. What chess site gives beginners 0 Elo ?

  17. The number one rule that's not included in this. Hydrate! Most people are dehydrated and don't know it, which causes their memory to fail and brain fog to occur.

  18. I went to 1600 one day I started yesterday n today i am 1671

  19. Dude, how does the bell curve start at 1000 with 1100-1200 being beginner? *Cries in sub 900

  20. After watching those video I went from 900 to 1356 in 4month

  21. Me
    1. First year – 1000 Rapid
    2. Second year – 1200 Rapid, 2000 + in puzzles.

    Did not learned theory or begining … only Puzzles and games.

    3. 2 years and 3 month . 1200 Rapid (but i think it 1250 – 1300 look on my oponents range in blitz), and my Blitz is 1060. And puzzles im reached 2100, but after few "quick" puzzles its near 2030.

  22. Hey man can you tell me what chess website u use?

  23. I played over 10k chess games in my life never played one puzzle with 1200 rating , getting better though but I do the puzzles and I have no idea what a opening is it the name I just try to make optimal moves and strategies protect my king and always trying to attack their king or a vulnerable queen , I think in game experience trial and error is way better maybe Iโ€™m wrong though.

  24. Just start cheating, and you'll get to 2300 elo pretty easy

  25. ive been playing for months and havent moved from 100 elo. i think im cooked guys

  26. Hey Rey, could you make a video about your setup against 1. d4? I really struggle against the London and the Queens Gambit

  27. I am 1373 elo i started 4 month ago bruh i am so slos

  28. chess is for fun??? it's not to show your dominance and put yourself above than everyone else on the social hierarchy???

  29. my elo is 0 bt i defeat a person who had 1200 elo

  30. I took 1 day to complete 400๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
