  1. Gotham: "I gotta get my pieces out; so lemme play pawn"

  2. Levi needs play like how he plays so we copy his style of play and start thinking how he thinks. Some moves he said 1000 won’t see I’ve seen so don’t underestimate people intelligence

  3. Is the Vienna game good in rapid?

  4. You have the best style of teaching chess, making it real and fun keep it up

  5. Maniiiiis. Gua ngomen gini kalo ketahuan pacar bakal digimanain ya hha.

  6. How do you castle when your king has been under attack.

  7. 40:15 Levy's ability to see what lower rated players would play is astonishing cuz im 1200 and thts exactly what I wouldve played 😂

  8. At 10:13 wouldnt bishop to A6 win the queen?
    I know you said you wouldnt play all the best moves but why didnt you mention it in the video?

  9. 10:00 Rh8-h7, queen is trapped, best move woul be to take this rook

  10. 56:57 you're right I saw the move instantly with the same reasoning. I saw this move as I was not 1200, but instead, 1000 rapid (my blitz is even worse).
    I mean, it comes naturally if you think about preventing the fork and any thought 1 move ahead would make it pretty clear to do it. Though, to be entirely fair, not everyone thinks about pins that deeply like I do from having my pieces pinned repeatedly.

  11. The 1000 game is similar to how my games go when I'm doing well and not blundering which gives me confidence I could reach such a level, I learned chess as a child and only started playing again last week when I downloaded the app and my rapid is 305 ish. I've got a lot to learn.

  12. Can someone explain to me why moving the queen was a losing move in the first 1400 game?

  13. As a 1000 I hope I gain 400 Elo from watching this

  14. 57:00 "i feel like no human being sees this move" me- lets give a check to get out of the situation

  15. Casually sipping a glass bottle of soda

  16. I ve tried the Botez gambit few times, my opponent was very happy

  17. I just upped from 1000 to 1400 in 3.5 months! Feeling pretty happy!

  18. My 900 opponents force checkmating in 5…

  19. "If you see this move at this level, report them for cheating."

    -What if I'm a really good player who's been playing for years in a club, but never online?

    -What if I'm a really good online player, but I lost my account/password and I'm starting from scratch on a new account?

    Pls I don't want to get reported 😉

  20. at 7:23 could you also play knight to e7? your pawns on c6 and a6 are safe then

  21. Levy without you i might not be playing chess to this day😂you make it seem so much less stressful than it is

  22. 43:35 why not push the e6 pawn to e5 and then get rid of the stacked pawns?

  23. My 800 rated player far better than 1000 your opponents

  24. only just discovered you, an old guy relearning, keeping my brain active, commentary is fantastic, thanks so much

  25. So good episode very instructive thx u alot ❤ watch ur 3 episode so far and i learned ao much

  26. levy, at 41:48 you missed mate in 2. Rook to H2 check and their rook has to take on H2 then queen to G2 is mate. I'm just a measly 1100, but it's cool to see these things because of Levy's teachings. Thanks, GOAT.

  27. levy when the 2800 episode comes out:
    “but what do i know, i’m a 2800 right so i’ll just take this piece”

  28. Man this series is so fun to watch
