  1. "It's a completely rediculous move" (It's the first thing that came to my mind and is absolutely something I would do)

  2. Love this series, and especially this episode since i'm around 900. You should do the series a second time!!

  3. "The best move is … but we're not going to do that."

  4. @Gothamchess can you say? :protected passed pawn" 10 times fast lol great content keep up the good work

  5. I'm a 700-800 elo but that's really obvious Qa3 is better in 25:00 . And, to be said, almost anyone like me can easily see that little square right there.

  6. I came out of a year long break from playing any chess. I was pleasantly surprised to see I could hold my ground against 1400-1500 players when my peak before was 1100. The only chess I did in this entire year were watching your videos! So thanks I'm sure you've help many like me without them even realising.

  7. Great video. Thank you for telling us the best moves but making less than best to keep the game going.

  8. 21:50 Is not a 2700 level move… that's being astronomically generous. 1000 at best, and thats coming from someone who's a 657 haha

  9. Just started watching your vids a few days ago and absolutely love them! Thanks

  10. I am hard stuck und 600 so I hope this video will help me and I will come back at 700 or 800

  11. This video alone has taken me from 500 to 700 in one day

  12. I started learning chess a couple months ago. I'm watching this series on repeat trying to break through my 700 elo plateau. I swear it feels like 700's never blunder, and always catch my blunders 😔

  13. hey levy jesus loves you and he gave his life for you

    matthew 7,8 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

    But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
    the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.isaiah 53,5

    11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

    14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”john10,11-18

    And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
    genisis 2,7 god bless you he is waiting of you

  14. How is chess such a good game after so long? Blows my mind how layered it is

  15. I wish my 800 elo opponents were like this 😞

  16. I’m at 370 at the time of this post. And I keep running into the suicidal queen and her bishop. I need help or I will never get past 450

  17. 800 me: 10s remaining OMG what to do? What to do?
    Levy: la la la la laaa

  18. I am 900 rated and at 21:58 i immediately screamed forced checkmate.

  19. at 37:20 you moved the rook back, when you could have gone queen a7, after a quick analysis it seems like the best possible outcome for them is trading a queen for a rook, or simply losing a rook. or else its mate, I'm curious what your thoughts are but of course you will never see this comment

  20. I’ve been playing chess for 2 days and watched the whole thing…. Great video

  21. the 769 player playing worse than the 570 and 540 player from last video

  22. Is this greenscreen? WTF is that thing by the lamp on the intro? It's black and moving around I thought it was a pizza rat

  23. This series really helps… thanks alot

  24. My fav part is gonna be the pawn endgame tips,im actually pretty decent at pawn Endgame but this tips is just so helpful,and another one is the Castle delaying

  25. I like that you didn't just show us how to do openings but explained every move showing us why the openings are good

  26. Can u do one of 1600-2000?
    Or at least 1600+?

  27. Watched the whole thing. Feels like i learned a lot

  28. Good series, I'm improving from this these two series! I can't wait to watch the third and the fourth one!

  29. I love that Levi says "we are getting to the point where you have to have some openings memorized" at 800 to 900. It drives me nuts when people parrot "openings don't matter until rank 2000. I have gotten into arguments with people about that. I started playing chess at 42yo never played before. this was around 2019. I was so bad at it, I was struggling to beat 500's and 600's. I faced an 800 once and he was insanely good compared to me. I was struggling to reach 500 elo on rapid 10 min. I had been playing 1e4 fried liver, and tried the london from youtube videos. I purchased levi's 1e4 course, and caro course. I got up to 600 within a few weeks after buying it. Then I purchased the d4 course, and switched over to playing the London, and against 1d4 as black I play the E6 B6 course. Anyway I was able to break 1000 inside of 5 or 6 months, and there is no way I would have been able to do that without openings, and courses.

  30. i just used the analysis for the last game & i understood something about tempo & accuracy of moves 😊😊

  31. I have warned you several times that there are no ratings below eight hundred. And I even told you the reason why. When are you going to admit to reason?

  32. i am sorry to tell you that Queen e3 is not high level, speaking as a 800 ELO 21:49

  33. “I’m going to take but it’s a thing 600s might do. Low rated players tend to take everything they can get” I feel targeted.

  34. this guys is 2700 but barely beating 700s…. i dont get it
