  1. your brain is a masterpiece,, thank you so much for this principles!!

  2. Very helpful content, I really learned a whole lot from this but I have to draw your attention to principle no 29

  3. Your voice is hurting my ears even with low volume. Please use a sound filter.

  4. Nieve question, but why is speed chess so popular?

  5. So chess is basically a memorization game ๐Ÿ˜‚

  6. This is an excellent video. very helpful. Many thanks for making it

  7. Another good principle to note is "responsibility pins". It's when an opponent's piece must stay in a certain area to prevent checkmate or an immense loss of material. The piece's responsibilities keep it confined "aka" pinned to an area. For example, if I have my rooks lined up, getting ready to back rank mate my opponent's king, my opponent's rooks MUST stay on the first rank to prevent checkmate. That means I can get a piece like my bishop onto the second rank to help attack rooks and attack the king without worry about it being captured, because the instant one of the rooks goes to the second rank to capture my bishop, I can deliver back rank mate.

  8. only 35? thought this was going to be tough to remember.

  9. Sometimes you need to move the pawns in front of the castled king so the king has space to run away in the end game ๐Ÿค”
    I move my king around a lot in the end and it is (usually) worth it ๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. Incredible video for beginners. Thank you for makng such quality content.

  11. For an overall set of chess strategies that enabled me to win against some more experienced, better players (overall), I suggest the book "Logical Chess Move by Move". The thrust of the book is, I'd say, "positional" chess, where you don't have to memorize all the great games. It can provide an entry into playing a decent game of chess, although the serious study of game history, strategy and tactics is needed to move into higher realms of competition. The book teaches a way to play decent chess without a lot of pedagogy.

  12. Thank you for this, this was a really good video

  13. Thank you.
    But you jumped from 28 to 30 with 1 rule short: only 34!

  14. Thank you so much for this informative video! Cheers

  15. What's better in end games a bishop or a knight

  16. "29" point missed ๐Ÿ˜ฅ, apart from that everything is good โ˜บ๏ธ

  17. If opponents playing hope chess, it's so irritating for me๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

  18. When you see a good move, look for a better one. …….emanuel lasker(world chess champion)

  19. Fantastic! I recommend slowing down playback speed of videos for beginners. Helped me process a bit better.

  20. Loved the last 3 principles. ๐Ÿ‘

  21. Dude, just 10 tips at a time for beginners. Otherwise a good presentation

  22. I feel personally attacked by donโ€™t play hope chess ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  23. Very helpful tips. Appreciate very much. Thank you.

  24. Would have been better if you had gotten rid of your face and showed the spreadsheet by itself, covering the entire screen.

  25. Crystal clear and very concise.
    Thanks a lot ?

  26. This was very informative, but I feel like the last principle (know when to ignore chess principles) would have been made much clearer with an example. Examples like that are hard to come by, but it can be hard to imagine (especially as a rookie) what kinds of situations would cause you to ignore the principles.

  27. Cool chess principles! Definitely gonna level up my game with these strategies. Thanks for sharing!

  28. Where was principle 29๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

  29. All 35 Rules.
    Control the Center.ย 

    Develop pieces quickly.ย 

    Knights before bishops.ย 

    Don't move the same piece twice in the opening.ย 

    Don't bring your queen out too early.ย 

    Castle before move 10.ย 

    Connect your rooks.ย 

    Rooks should go to open or half open files.ย 

    Knights on the rim are grim.ย 

    Try to avoid doubled pawns.ย 

    Try to avoid isolated pawns.ย 

    Try to avoid backward pawns.ย 

    Don't trade a bishop for a knight without a good reason.ย 

    Avoid moving pawns in front of your castled king.ย 

    Don't open the center if your king is still there.ย 

    2 minor pieces are usually better than a rook and a pawn.ย 

    3 minor pieces are usually better than a queen.ย 

    Rooks are good on the 7th rank.ย 

    Doubled rooks on an open file are very strong.ย 

    Bishops are better in open positions, knights are better in closed positions.ย 

    The best way to deal with a flank attack, is with a counter attack in the center.ย 

    When 2 pawns can capture the same piece, capture towards the center.ย 

    The king should be activated in the endgame.ย 

    Rooks go behind passed pawns.ย 

    2 connected passed pawns on the 6th rank will beat a rook.ย 

    Attack the base of a pawn chain.ย 

    Knights are usually the best piece to use to blockade a pawn.ย 

    If your position is cramped, trading pieces can help.ย 

    Trade your passive pieces for your opponent's active pieces.ย 

    When ahead material, trade pieces, not pawns.ย 

    When behind material, trade pawns, not pieces.ย 

    Games with opposite colored bishops are dangerous in the middlegame, and drawish in the endgame.ย 

    Don't play "hope" chess.ย 

    When you see a good move, look for a better move.ย 

    A really good chess player knows the right time to ignore a chess principle.

  32. Thank you this is inspiring! I want to learn how to properly play and understand chess but theres just too many strategies lol. Thank you for helping me understand at least basic concepts. As you explain each concept the game starts to take more shape and i began to see each piece differently. It makes more sense and the board no longer looks like just a bunch of squares. I can actually see the territory and its advantages.
