Monthly Classical Arena Chess Tournament #3

I competed in the Monthly Classical Arena Chess Tournament on lichess for the first time. It’s a 5 hour tournament with time controls 10|0. This tournament was played while broadcasting at .

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly. Consider subscribing here on YouTube for frequent content, and/or connecting via any or all of the below social medias. Your support is greatly appreciated. Take care, bye. 😀



  1. Jerry, when somebody ask me what is the best way to learn chess..I point you. The way you use logical explanation that are very easy and extremely entertaining to watch. I remember going through one hard period of my life with the help of your videos , my favorite daily routine was eating breakfast while watching your SHOW. Meditation and medication. Thank you 🙂 <3

  2. To show how watching Chess Network can help your chess play, I started my own videos as a beginner to progress to master like Jerry. I want to make it educational as possible so check it out and comment on my mistakes. my road is our road 2 master!

  3. @50:31 when black plays d4 you can just ignore it and play Qxf7 with mating nets! 🙂

  4. 4:41:44 does Rxc3 not work? If knight takes rook then queen to b7 followed by queen to c6 after the check and you can pick up both minor pieces easily. And if the knight does not take the rook then the bishop is pinned and unprotected as well as you just gaining a free pawn. I don't have any programs to check this so if anyone could let me know how well that would work I would appreciate it.

  5. At 4:46:03, why not take the bishop with the rook? Isn't that a way out of mate?

  6. Is there something wrong with Nc2 at 1:25:59? Not that it is necessary for winning lol

  7. why didnt jerry take the bishiop knight pin with the pawn around 19:30?

  8. At 4:45:56 if Jerry were to have taken The bishop with the queen would that have avoided mate? or am I just seeing things? please answer

  9. You can take as many breaks as you want by not pressing "Back to Tournament." They only pair you up when you are in the lobby.

  10. Who else watched the whole thing

    Because I didn't

  11. I'm constantly yelling at the screen for you to make a move. There's no increments Jerry!!!

  12. i enjoy videos like this so much! love your voice and your style of commentary its so relaxing and fun while i feel like i learn a lot by hearing your thought process! 🙂 keep em coming

  14. second time I watched the whole thing.

  15. maybe in the game with Lucasz83 instead of RxP at the end you could have played QxP forcing a queen exchange — R + B v R —- with chances to prolong the game?

  16. Hey ChessNetwork! I want to thank you for your awesome feeds! You really help me sleep at night. Not that your stuff is boring! the contrary, you put my mind at ease. Your voice is really calming and I love your videos!

  17. Why not berserking when playing against ~1500?

  18. can you report the idiots that make you wait?

  19. Sir , I learned a lot from your vedios. Simply you are my master.
    I'm unable to see even your photograph.
    Plz sir once you make the vedio with your pic.
    Thank you.

  20. Jerry should do ASMR, his voice is nice to hear to be honest.

  21. "Monthly"!? Bring these back please, these are my favorite to watch because we really gain a lot more insight into your thought process versus blitz or bullet.

  22. Why if electricity are down..awesome… Jerry, you are listed on too ya… I am very pleasure to see and take your lesson from your youtube… Honestly not easy playing by comment…sucsses to you… Hopefully healthy and wealthy… Aamiin

  23. i cant forgive you for losing against lance in a won position

  24. Hey Jerry, any chance of another long play like this? Really nice to get time to explore more options. 🤘😀

  25. My mom said I can watch one more video before I go to bed

  26. How could you lose the match against 1place while you had double the amount of time he had

  27. After rewatching could you not have played rook to f2 and either gain a pawn or get white to have 3 pawns in a row?

  28. I think I've watched this video 3 times now. Would be cool if you did more of these (though I think you prefer blitz and bullet, these are more instructive)

  29. Watching you play makes me cringe… too greedy and no activity

  30. Cool idea Jerry.. revisit some of your old torny’s from years ago, and run through where your mind is at now what you would do, with the years of progress

  31. Who's going through all of Jerry's videos now?
