  1. Bro as soon as it started I said white because of the m2

  2. We all were looking for checkmate.
    I found it tho😮

  3. One day, I'll learn enough from these shorts to win against a level one chess bot

  4. So that’s what that +8 means under my opponents name

  5. The most important skill is knowing en passant

  6. This is a really useful skill, now I can see that I'm losing DURING a game rather than after it

  7. White to Re8 Is forced mate, change my mind

  8. once I had an advantage of 64 pawns and some guy asked me how I won, step 1 is to lose

  9. move the e2 pawn to e8 and it's either win or take the queen from there

  10. How to win in chess simple edition:

    1. Win.

  11. I am a 1700 and my games still are decided by who blunders the less

  12. I was half-expecting you to say something like "despite all this, black has mate in 3" even though that clearly wasn't the case.

  13. rook e8 rook f8 takas rook e8 again black queen f8 queen takes f8

  14. I had a messenger bubble over the white queen and I was very confused as to how white was ahead

  15. In my opinion, the best skill in chess is to not let your opponent’s pieces take your king

  16. I can hear the strain in his voice when he says two points is worth two full pawns lol. He's teaching adults that one plus one equals two redundantly everyday 😀

  17. Levy: telling us about positions

    Me: oh I see a mate in 2

  18. If you want to became CM or NM in national on board tournament its so easy, just alwaysly offering a Draw 😂 but for the GM or IM thats bad idea because you're not intentioning to win a game and became a Champion you waste your time and your money to spend alot for that on board tournament 😂 for nothing only to taking a titled and not money 😂 but thats gona happen, even me in best of 10 blitz 1000 to 1500 elo i lose 6 matches, i win only 1 match and 3 matches are draw 😂 but i gained a ratings on national tournament 1300 elo easy 😂 some of the players are not winning even 3 loses and 7 draw 😂 but they still getting a ratings in national 😂 so the next tournament if your friends is higher rating than your or some is higher rating than you same strategy offering a draw in early 😂 until you became CM or NM for only a Draw its possible to CM NM or even from some FM was not winning in on board tournament most of theire played is a Draw 😂

  19. Sounds a lot like white people in america

  20. Forgetting the most important part. Whose turn is it?

  21. Not to ba an asshole, but this skill look to me more like an "assert the situation" ability, and let you know in how deep shit you/oppent are/is, and it does not allow you to beat anyone in chess on it own

  22. It makes me feel better when every Time levy makes these kind of videos I understand and get it it right

  23. Also the solution to the board for white is to sacrifice THE ROOOOOK, it goes feom e2 to e8 then blacks rook takes, e1 to e8, 2nd rook blocks, whites rook takes and thats checkmate.

  24. White is up a pawn, so winning in material. White also has doubled rooks occupying an open rank, while black's doubled rooks stare into their own piece

  25. Position material king saftey pieces more active more space

  26. Wait… Does the evaluation actually translate the position to material points? I never knew about this

  27. Slow down, I can’t keep up, and I need the tutorial! 😂

  28. Slight advantage to white 💀

    – gotham

  29. I was able to learn what the +2 means in stockfish from this vid

  30. Levi: +2 is a crazy advantage
    Me who mouseslipped and blundered a rook instead of taling a queen, getting -17: 👁👄👁

  31. Black has white checked in one move as well…

  32. Well he is up a pawn, so really his advantage is one pawn right

  33. Evaluating positions most correctly is the best skill in chess.

    Magnus attests to this superior ability, which makes him better than the rest.

  34. Don’t forget about development, initiative, and superior minor pieces.

  35. One skill in chess is that when you are up… don't blunder the game away.

  36. Oh, plus a point means a pawn essentially? I had no idea that’s where it comes from. It makes sense why plus 1 can be tough to win sometimes

  37. White can move once and it's checkmate
