  1. Clever guy!!!
    Well presented!!!
    Will keep for further reference!!!

  2. Hey nice clickbait buddy. I wanted wrinkles.

  3. if chess proves anything, is that communism or capitalism is superior to monarchy. The king is a vulnerability 🙂

  4. This was really terrific! Thank you!!

  5. Tip #1 : don't play chess if you have dementia (pic before opening this vid).

  6. nice clear explanation, coming back as as second time beginner very helpful

  7. Thanks so much, but what is the opposite of Hope chess?

  8. Terrific effort!
    Well done.

    Graphics were quick-top notch visuals.

    Thank you

  9. Don't understand #31 – you say when down you should trade pawns not pieces but then describe trading pieces (queens) and not pawns because you want to keep as many on the board as possible?!? What am I missing?

  10. Fantastic video. Straight to the point and very helpful. Thanks.

  11. When calculating, think in that order : 1. Captures 2. Checks 3. Threats 4. normal moves

  12. Why not make it 35000 principles……and if you could you would 😮

  13. Prinviple #36: you better not play chess

  14. I've been tinkering with chess since I was 12. I'm 49 now and I just learned more in 2 minutes than my entire life. Thus "tinkering" and not "playing".

  15. Great great explanation. Thank you for sharing this knowledge.

  16. these are all amazing tips, but i do notice the top 10 players love being the bad kids in class and literally avoiding these principles all the time lol. example would be in the past year magnus trolling with A4, even in seriouse tournaments

  17. For me 34 is extremely valuable info. Thanks for the lessons

  18. "Don't open center if King is still there". But didn't we move the center pawns at the very start?

  19. I will take my queen over 3 minor pieces any day.

  20. Don't move the same piece twice unless you're magnus – lol

  21. 3:15 I wouldn’t say black’s knight is effective when you consider the fact it’s hanging

  22. You want to beat everyone at chess, just don't bother with it, don't play it consider it someone else's useless creation and create your own type of game.

  23. Thanks. I have actually intuitively adopted all the principles over time. Principle 21 is the one I'm struggling with, as is EVERY beginner: "attack". This is what makes you an intermediate player: being able to plan an attack, i.e. predict more than 2-3 moves.

  24. I never play by points I attack the king .

  25. I think principal number 25 is garbage in that situation… I would literally just lay in wait for an advancement or a queen

  26. Bro Your Video Helps A Lot ,
    Especially , Thanks For The Full Principle List

  27. This info is great! Can’t wait to share it with my 7 y/o daughter who is having fun learning the game.

  28. I already knew some of these principles, but I did not know all of them and some of them were new to me. It is sad that my chess coaches never taught me all these principles. But still, I'm glad I found this video and this video is very good, thank you very much 🙂.

  29. Thorough, yet succinct. And as others have said, well articulated. Really enjoyed this video and no doubt will come back to it. Thanks for your work here.

    Haven't played in decades and only as a kid. Now keen to learn to play properly and teach my niece and nephew!

  30. Had to keep pausing the video to play a couple games here and there, hoooked.
