Blitz Chess Tournament #18 (Chess 960)

This is a 55-minute Fischer Random (Chess 960) tournament I competed in on lichess, namely the Chess-Network Arena Tournament. This tournament was played while broadcasting at . Time controls are set at 3 minutes per player.

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.

  1. Your videos are great Jerry. I just started playing last December and have found your videos very instructive.

  2. "Shut up and make a move" love your commentary, keep up the great work!

  3. I think on castling king should move only 2 squares.

  4. at 12:54 isn't it mate if they try to save the queen? 32…Qg5 33. Nxf7+ …Kg8 or Kf8 are followed by 34. Qh8#. Trading Queen for Rook was the only surviving continuation, although as we saw, Black doesn't stay alive for long.

  5. Isn't the move in the thumbnail a straight up blunder? It just hangs the bishop on a1 right? πŸ˜€

  6. Less bliztin' and more crazyhousin' and threeckeckin' and king_of_the_hillin'
    And thank you

  7. I really want to see the face behind this beautiful voice

  8. This variant seems great for practicing the logic behind piece development.

  9. God Jerry.. Some of these vids where you just sit and flounder while your time ticks down KILLS ME!

  10. ChessNetwork jerry, u gonna try 4-player chess? yes? no? uhm. okay.
    but seriously tho', just can't seem to find a good player to watch playing that chess variant. so maybe you'll play?

    no? okay. LOL

  11. Man you had me in stitches when grandma beserked you! Lol

  12. can someone explain why grandma only had half the time ? not literally, but in that game.

  13. Guys? Does someone know if Jerry has some kind of schedule for his twitch stream? Like once a month or week that is a fixed stream day or high chance of catching his stream? Or any tips on how to catch his stream?

  14. chess 960 tournament featuring…. grandma! and John wick! lol

  15. Man I hate Fischer Random. I guess if you're an insane chess genius who's sick and tired of memorizing a gazillion theory lines, it's the game for you. But as an average joe who doesn't king's indian from a nimzo indian, the classic set up has enough variation to keep me busy for a few decades. Didn't someone say chess is already complicated enough? Anyway, great video Jerry. I could watch you play tic-tac-toe.

  16. 48:30 I had that exact mate except with white yesterday against my brother. I have a question what is the skill difference between players on and players on lichess? It always seems like higher skilled players go to lichess and I want to improve my game so it'd be helpful to know for sure.

  17. How do you get rid of those lichess arrows without setting back a move?? Wizardry!

  18. Ive been a fan for a few weeks now and I must say I love this channels content and the commentary. may I ask is it possible to be notified and join these mini tournaments?
