Chess is an intellectual battle where players are exposed to numerous mental processes such as analysis, attention to detail, synthesis, concentration, planning and foresight. Psychological factors are also present on and off the board; playing Chess stimulates our imagination and creativity. Every single move a player makes is the result of a deep analysis based on the elements presented on the battlefield.
Chess in its essence teaches us psychological, sociological and even moral values. In a Chess game, both players start with the same amount of material and time. The fact that the white pieces move first is considered to be practically irrelevant —especially because a player typically plays one game as white and one game as black. Consequently, the final result of the battle solely depends on each player. It doesn’t matter if you win by taking advantage of your opponent’s mistakes or by simply avoiding mistakes yourself. Truth is that Chess is an extremely individual sport and our defeats can only be blamed on ourselves and no one else. And this, in the end, only benefits us because we learn to be and feel responsible for our actions and never come up with excuses to justify ourselves.
We also learn that when it comes to our victories on the board, our opponent’s mistakes play a more significant role than our own skills. Let’s not forget that a Chess game without any mistakes would be a draw. This way, Chess provides us with another valuable life lesson: be humble at all times.

Brilliant moves were hard to come by a couple years ago until CC updated how they measure Brilliancies. Now a lot of great moves count as brilliancies if they are greater than the average great move. I don't know how they come up with them exactly but sadly many brilliancies are no longer brilliant. I think they did this to make their customers feel smarter than they really are.
Only one brilliant move 😪however 95% is pretty damn good. You’re setting the benchmark really high for future videos. Love the defiant way you say you would play your moves over the computers moves. You’re the boss 👍👍👍
el coach is on a streak of brilliant moves and also of daily lessons🙏
In lichess my rapid elo is 1800+. My elo is between 1800-1850 for last 3/4 months.Can you tell me, What steps should i take to rich 2000?
Eres un crack hermano, me encanta mucho los contenidos sobre la defensa Pirc (he mejorado mil!!!) y este video es otra joya añadida a lista. Gracias camarada !! 👌
Superb Roberto! So much information to pick up! Your style is increadible!
Keep it up!
The best part of this game being that you played Bxh4 in an OTB tourney.
There have been many times where I’ve wanted to play some bizzare brilliant moves but didn’t bcoz stakes are too high in OTB but I’ve regretted later.
Also just 10k to go!🔥💪😎
Hello coach, nowadays, I'm facing some rare variations in pirc and KID and I really need your thoughts on them, what is the best way to share them with you?
