  1. I've played chess my whole life but have never bothered to research much strategy, just made up my own as I go.

  2. it's funny because i never remembered when or how i started learning the basics of chess. so i've been having the basics he is talking about in this video for 10+ years and i never improved it haha

  3. the thing that i always think is kinda funny is that chess, checkers, and backgammon are all different combos of white, black, and red.
    chess is black and white.
    checkers is black and red.
    backgammon is white and red (not always, but seems to be the most common colors, i assume to match the red and white dice.)

  4. I'm watching this to learn to teach chess better to people that are just starting out. Your teaching style is so straight forward and entertaining.

  6. Gotham chess is great but if you really want a channel that is for those between 600-1400 check out CHESS VIBES Everybody can’t understand why he is not as popular as the others although everybody comments as such. Maybe his a new guy on the block but he gets to the core of the matter/ what you need to know

  7. Now the question is: is that enough to play among friends and family ?
    I don't wanna become an expert, I just wanna play 😅

  8. Another way to remember where the queen goes is "the queen likes her Diamonds" d is for the d file 🙂

  9. i’m here because every-time i visit my hometown my cousin always wins in chess since i have no clue as to what i’m doing but now i’m determined to learn
