2019 Autumn Marathon | Blitz Chess Tournament #24

The 2019 Autumn Marathon is a 24-hour tournament consisting of 3|2 blitz chess games. This lichess.org tournament began on October 25th at 8:00 PM EDT. I competed for about 5 hours while livestreaming at twitch.tv/ChessNetwork, and provided commentary as I played.
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. I’m pretty high rn and when you said you just got back from a high school football game (at 8:20) I thought you meant you were a player. Considering the channel age I’m sure anyone understands my confusion lmfao

  2. Jerry: The heck are you doing playing beginners?!👀

  3. Why didn't you say "Hi everyone, it's Jerry!"?

  4. RageAgainstTheMachine RageAgainstTheMachine says:

  12. The tournament should’ve only lasted 1 hr 59 mins 😂😂

  13. You have the best chess channel on youtube.

  14. I subscribed last week and Jerry never acknowledged it on stream. Jerry and I have always been two bulls in a pasture.

  15. Five hours of Jerry playing chess?


  16. Jerry, I appreciate your chess analysis (GMI games) but your blitz playing is so weak comparative at a super GMI like Hikaru.
    Also, you are too slow for 3+2, try 5+2.

  17. watched all vid in 2 days xD was nice.1st place some russia guy,i'm from russia too

  18. I was so upset I couldnt participate in this. I had to drive to Upstate New York and attend an art gallery

  19. oh Jerry, at 3:46:10 wasnt 18. …Nc3 saving the N by attacking opponents Q there?! he could have go giving up the exchange, but still…

  20. 26:45 I wonder if he was watching Jerry's stream and left right after he heard it was a blunder.

  21. I was the only person in that beat IM TerryR2 in the tournament!

  22. Jerry, from the Chess Network, coming out with a controversial new title; Siding with “Autumn” as apposed to the more conventional “Fall”
