I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who learned how to play from 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. hey Jerry love your videos!. May I send some puzzles privately (to you),which I was unable to solve and maybe you can include it in your subsequent videos and show us the correct approach

  2. I want to play againts you Jerry πŸ™‚

  3. Thank you! Very instructive on how to develop our calculation skills!

  4. I want to get better at visualizing the movement of the pieces the way you can, Jerry! Thanks for the video!

  5. 100% serious question Jerry, do you listen to chief keef???

  6. 8:20 Be6+ Kc8?! Is actually also possible. White would just win because of illegal move πŸ˜€

  7. Jerry you probably could get a job reading audiobooks. lol Thanks for the video

  8. i liked how the knight protecting the bishop was really just a mirage, making it easier to over look the true threat of a royal fork

  9. for puzzle 2, whats wrong with queen to e4, forking the knight and bishop, after giving check on g4?

  10. I started laughing when he said "opening disaster for both sides" at 7:30 , for some reason.

  11. The real question is why the hell black didnt play Nf4 instead of Kg8 (I mean before start of the puzzle)

  12. any chance you will show your picture chess network?

  13. I swear I saw Qf5 first in puzzle #3 before Jerry, does that make me a NM? πŸ€”

  14. on the 2nd puzzle i was figuring that u had to go open up the bishop. never realized there was a way to bring mate

  15. Puzzle 1: another variation was Kc5

  16. Good demonstration. I could not solve a one.

  17. hey will playing blindfold helps in puzzle solving

  18. Does anyone know what software he is using to record? I wanna see how well it works on my pc.

  19. Re Puzzle 3: One pattern to look for when considering possible mates by the Queen on an adjacent square, is the enemy King β€œepauletted” by his own men.
