It's never bad to brush up on the basics Reply This teacher is so good. I'm learning how to play chess as a 36yr old! Reply Why is that you did not let the BLACK STUDENT answer when the BLACK STUDENT RAISED HIS HAND? Reply I started 8 years old Reply Play chess ♟ hahaha 😝 Reply Any video on rook vs queen end game by GM Akobian ? Reply 10 years gap Reply My respects to GM Akobian. His teachings are quite good if we consider that he is just a human being. He is not at my same level in chess (3600 rated), but he is very clear to teach mere mortals. Reply QA-4 check, forces pawn take take check, forces black knight to block, (queens gambit accepted from white) Reply Nc3 Reply why did autoplay curse me here?

Great teacher. Reply God damn it's alot of information to remember for someone like me who's usually don't remember where I putted my keys last time Reply This is fantastic! Thank you. Reply Where is the e4 starting series? Reply Good teacher, thanks to your patience Reply What is the name of the video with the next 6 openings in it. TY Reply Very informative for me…Thanks Sir Reply I see two possibilities: 1) This man has an advanced degree in teaching methods from a very prestigious university where he was at the head of his class, or 2) He has absolutely incredible instincts for teaching complex subject matter. I have known numerous professors with high level training on teaching techniques who were nowhere near as effective as Mr Akobian. If he is self-taught and operating on instincts, I hope he has a lot of children and they all become teachers. Reply "Sunday kids class" – im 27 lol Reply 10:00 Reply What is the best way to learn chess ? Reply Thank you so much Reply Great video Reply The homeless guy at the park would be more appropriate to teach this crowd. 😂 Reply Best ever instruction with good reviewsLooking forward to more lessons 🙏👍 Reply Awesome lecture….. very knowledgeable and patient teacher…. Reply This is a wonderful teaching session for beginners 👍 Reply Coach pogi Reply Sir, I only have watched this video one time and have seen an incredible improvement in my game. Awesome teacher. I am sooo impressed with your class. I will watch your other tutorials. Outstanding. Reply Why doesn’t black play H6 to pressure the bishop? Reply I'm a beginner so sorry if this is obvious, but at 2.17 he explains that black should just concede the pawn and play knight to F6. He then shows how it is bad for black to try and defend the pawn. At 2.34 he shows how it is bad for black to play either pawn (A6 or C6). But he doesn't show what would happen if black played bishop to A6. Isn't that the best move for black? White can still take the pawn at B5 but the bishop can then take it leaving black one piece up. Reply Learning with patience is already difficult… but having learnt it and teaching what was learnt with patience to kids is God level…. Kudos to GM Akobian Reply This video will hit well over 10 million views , what a fantastic teacher and an incredible opportunity for young chess players Reply Namskar ie wishing you best. I am from city pune in India.liked you as best teacher.more good thing that is your pronouncing is very good simple. Reply 2023 anyone Reply Thank you sir👑 Reply Excellent explanation!! Reply whats name of this hach? Reply All I know about chess is how the pieces move, but this was a very interesting watch. Reply Great group of kids. I love to see it.
