LIVE Blitz Chess Commentary #175: Nimzo-Indian Defense – Classical (4.Qc2)


This is a blitz chess game I played against a random opponent who was selected from the ChessNetwork Cafe on ChessCube. The game was livestreamed at . Time controls are set at 5 minutes per player.

Opening: Nimzo-Indian Defense – Classical (4.Qc2)


  1. reminds me the French Defense: problems with White-squared Bishop.

  2. Wow, Jerry, that was horrible to watch! xD

  3. hey there jerry, at what times do you usually stream?

  4. Don't be afraid to study openings Jerry lol. We know you have a good understanding of openings but I believe your game would be much stronger if you took some time studying some opening theory.

  5. Jerry doesn't know :o! Do more home-cooking and one day, you will play 'correctly' 🙂 Good luck!

  6. Thanks for that lesson Jerry, i will never play again c5 in that Qc2 variation :-)))

  7. There's no reason for you to do that, …c5 is perfectly playable

  8. Jerry is the Chuck Norris of chess. There is no theory of openings, just a list of openings that Jerry allows to be played.

  9. i caught the last three minutes last stream lol

  10. I enjoy playing 4…c5 in the classical variation. If pawn takes pawn. 5…Qc7 is a good follow up, attacking the pawn a second time and not allowing the dark square bishop to gain control of the h2-b8 diagonal. Thanx.

  11. Jerry's only two months behind now!

    Second 5 minute game he's ever posted a loss… I think?

  12. Thank you Jerry for playing a higher level opponent.

  13. At 4:53 why not just c6 to watch over the dark square bishop, avoid that skewer AND allows for the light square bishop to develop to b7??
    Yes you do have an unprotected knight after that, but i'm not seeing a way white can exploit that.

  14. why does it matter when he will upload it to youtube to watch whenever?

  15. Judging from the 104 likes and 0 dislikes, yes. It's instructional. And he doesn't always lose to players his level.. Obviously.

  16. Didn't know you could lose as well, Jerry!

  17. at 5:30 couldn't he have taken the rook with the queen with winning position?

  18. No, it would have been mate on H2 if he took that rook

  19. Fireworks. That what you get for beating Jerry : )

  20. your opponent was celebrating his victory with fireworks 😀

  21. It's good to see the full power of the nimzo-indian! great game
