  1. I am dad I have a daughter she is 6 years old i am 55 years old I want to teach my daughter so can you show me a list of things in chess thank you

  2. I'm only here because I'm working on upgrading from acquaintance to friend with someone, and he invited me to play chess with him. He said he'd teach me, but that's a MASSIVE burden, so I'm learning as much as I can before tomorrow XD

  3. You should've went on with the perfect opening.

  4. Really insightful video, I just began getting into chess, and I definitely soaked up everything you taught! 🔥🙏

  5. bro so can the king not kill to get out of a tricky situation, its aggressor?

  6. Levy, I was 1850 in college. Then I didn''t play for decades. Now, in my early 70's, I recently started playing again. But my close-up eyesight is bad and can't be corrected with lenses or otherwise. So I frequently lose my queen and/or other material when I have winning positions against 1200 -1400 players. Totally frustrating. So, as much as I love the game, I'm probably gonna hang up my chess spurs. At least I have your channel to enjoy and can be a fan.

  7. In Chinese Chess there is no stalemate, its auto lose, also the king is able to check the opponents king. The knights moves in the tetris Z shape instead of the L shape. I believe the bishop equivalent would be the cannon, which needs a mount ( any piece thats directly infront, behind or either side depending on the position of the piece its trying to capture)
    similarities of Chess and Chinese Chess is super fascinating.

  8. Yes, Andrew Tate brought me here, so teach me how to play chess! 😂😂
