When you play the Benoni, you will experience a lack of space, and an imbalanced pawn structure. A good strategy for black is to seek at least 1 minor piece exchange in order to be able to move about more freely within the limited space. Given time to prepare, black should look to set the queenside pawn majority into motion. Would there be time? This was a 5|0 time control game, where I was playing with the black pieces.

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. Consider subscribing here on YouTube for frequent content, and/or connecting via any or all of the below social medias. Your support is greatly appreciated. Take care, bye. 😀
I don't understand why these people use the computer for EVERY move. Why not just wait till a critical position and then use a little computer assistance for a couple moves and avoid detection? That's how you know the game is suspicious. They don't just win. They win in the winning-est way possible.
a lot of cheaters on chess.com recently Simon Williams played vs some cheaters a couple of months ago. One of the many reasons why i like playing on lichess.org more the cheaters get banned and you get rating refund.
I pretty much agree with all the rest of the comments about this game/account
I usually am very opposed to calling someone a cheater, but this really raised my suspicions. Taking the same amount of time each move, not going for the straightforward winning captures, but the scientifically precise best combinations at the end, and also taking time on simple recaptures. I call bullshit.
props for being so restrained afterwards, it was amazing how almost inhumanly accurate the ….. account….. was playing
hmmm a 2368 account taking 6 seconds to play a mate in 1….rrrrrriiiiiiiiight
@2:50 from my frame of reference I'd have called the plumber like two moves ago 😛 but hey I'm not a chess master 🙂
https://www.chess.com/member/albertime account closed "fair play", yep he cheated… cheers Jerry! love your vids
Yep, Jerry's opponent has already been banned on chess.com.
Legit or not, thanks for an instructive video.
Jerry, I have to respect the amount of restraint you have in the postmortem. I would have been jumping on my chair and screaming like a monkey at how much of a cheater they were hahah
I like the live comments while playing.. keep it up
Thanks for another great video. You have a lot of class Jerry.
Hey I just went from a 11.64 centipawn lead to a checkmate in one against. So your game was much more fun to watch!! 😜
You played against cheater
Update: albertime's account closed! 🙂
Beautiful game by White. Shame it was played by a fish.
I did re-watch the game from the beginning and found out that Jerry's opponent is cheating. As you can see, the opponent moves every 6 secs. Damn, I can surely make my ELO looks pretty good by cheating, unfortunately, my brain strongly disagree.
Could tell straight away that you were playing a computer. The timing of each of your opponent's moves were extremely consistent, no variability between their obvious simple moves and the sharp less obvious ones. I really don't understand what people get out of cheating this way. Someone else is literally playing the game for them, what satisfaction is there in playing let alone winning.
Good game, Jerry! Great to watch you playing as always!!
Would have been rather fun to dig into this fella's account/history and have a rummage. I rather enjoyed Jerry's games against Computer4Impossible, I think this is the first game I've seen him play stockfish.
Whoone wutchacleian shuctedai
Lol why not just say this was a computer? Everyone knows you're not KC.
"This account has been closed for violating our Fair Play rules.
These rules help keep chess fair for everyone."
Account was closed
Jerry was right! 😛
Poor Jerry he sounds so sad in this game. As if playing against a cheater broke his heart.
Would you ever upload a picture of yours somewhere jerry?
The second I saw you were playing on chesscom I knew there was a good chance it's a cheater.
I think you should report him, chess.com has cheat detection software that can take a look at it.
Edit: nevermind his account has been closed
Nice game by stockfish
Still a fun vid to watch Jerry! 🙂
I did some research that confirms that the user was cheating and Chess.com shut down the account. (https://www.chess.com/member/albertime)
1) The account was created just a few days before Jerry played against it.
2) The account's bullet rating was around 1400, which is obviously way way way below the strength of play in Jerry's game.
3) The account has now been marked "Closed: Fair Play." (You can see all of this here.
Jerry why do you have to be such a poor sport, why can't you just admit that Stockfish played a great game? XP
What a douchebag that guy is lol
OMG, i ddidn't now you still made vids! most your chessnetwork tourney vids are from 2013!
Hell yes! do you give lessons?!
3:45 Knight takes e4 Bishop takes knight rook takes bishop knight takes rook bishop takes pawn for the fork
White needed time to input Jerry's moves … umm… I mean think about Jerry's moves… before making his own move. Such thinking requires a consistent amount of time even for simple recaptures that have no in-between moves. White is a remarkably consistent player.
This is an opening that I keep meaning to learn as Black. It looks like it can be fun but when I try it, the result usually ends up the same for me–no space and struggling to find a plan. I guess you really have to be careful right from the opening in this one?
Lol after this game the "account" beats another NM 2-0 then somehow takes 78 moves to beat a level 800 player. Already banned from chess.com. https://www.chess.com/member/albertime
All my respect to Jerry's sportsmanship, polite manners and overall reaction after being defeated by an "account" copying Stockfish 8's moves straight from Lichess.org analysis board with local engine. After he mentioned his "sixth sense" and thought about not even analysing, but then just went on to exhibit the faulty conduct on the other player, my hat was already off.
The sober tone shows how much he is both sorry for someone who cheats like that and positive about learning what can come from a Benoni which went wrong. You don't see that a lot (the reaction, I mean — the cheating is all over).
42. Qf6# would have been more accurate because it takes less time to execute. (And it's more natural because you're moving forward.) On the other hand, 42. Qe5# of course comes first alphabetically. For some… acounts, that's the #1 criterion. :p
this account was shut down just so you know. sorry you were frustrated but i admit i was laughing during the entire post game with some of your comments
So you guys agreed it was a computer opponent?
Well the account was closed in August due to violating fair play, so at least there's that
Too bad Chess.com isn't doing much about these clowns using the engine.
One does not simply Stockfish into Mordor. Oh wait…
I always exchange the light squared bishop for the knight on f3 when I play the Benoni just to untangle and make e5 that much harder to execute
https://www.chess.com/member/albertime yeah, Jerry had a feeling something was going on here and he was right to think it. Those calculations at the end of the game seem too precise
Respect for Jerry just gone up 100 folds. So polite.
The classiest man on YouTube.
I always play the benoni defense with black against d4 c4, and I'm pretty sure (with my experience) you shouldn't do Qc7. The queen in d8 is better place than in c7, in that case, white cant really do e5 bcs you're just gonna take the pawn if you hold that square (do you say square btw?) Maybe another thing, try to play f5, it's really (to me) the key move if your opponent plays with Bg2 and f4), it will grant you some space, and if you can play one knight in f7. So, instead of Qc7 maybe try h6 with Nh7 and f5. (sorry for my bad english and wrote by a 1940 so sry if I said crap in that scenario bcs white dont usually play a lot Bg2 and f4, seems really "computerish" if you know what I mean)
