Blitz Chess Tournament #17 (3|0)

This is a 90-minute tournament I competed in on lichess, namely a Daily SuperBlitz Arena. This tournament was played while broadcasting at . Time controls are set at 3 minutes per player.

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. Yay blitz! I like blitz more than bullet, you have more time to think.
    You should play 3-2 more

  2. Very good commentary. Perfect amount of excitement and description

  3. 44:40 how is Kc8 not just dropping the rook? am i missing something?

  4. Jerry needs to blitz more! It would be nice to see you go for the podium or higher placement… 🙁

  5. It's always a pleasure to see Jerry's endgame technique

  6. That last game was impressive! Defence wins Championships…even though this time it wasn't enough to get to podium land.
    Keep it going Jerry! Thank you for everything you put out there 🙂

  7. Jerry do you think you'll ever get the gm title?

  8. nice to see you back on some Blitz tourn. You make all the stuff look easy when i still find it soooo difficult 🙂

  9. Jerry please play 4 way chess.

  10. Long time fan here. I really enjoy watching your videos! Im usually not one for making requests but what I would love to see is you trying out the 4-player chess variant on chess. com, please at least consider it? 🙂

  11. 57:10 "My opponent has no quit man, no quit! Okay they do have some quit…"
    This is why we love you Jerry.

  12. Good job man. Your fan From Iran. Lots of loveeee

  13. I've never been into chess nor understood it prior to watching you, but man, I don't know why but I love watching your blitz videos.

  14. You are Really good Jerry. You did commit some mistakes (of course as the perspective of a person that is not on the "heat" of the moment" against the Zu, and twice against Edi, but holy crap that was a fast chess

  15. Jerry, At 15:55 you have got to be kidding me not to play Bishop to b5

  16. 106:10 …it's definitely a knight capture cuz the knight was unprotected…

  17. Jerry is usually the strongest player in these Lichess tournaments–yet he often finishes second or third (even fourth, in this case).

    That's largely because of the "berserking" option, which Jerry rarely uses. This feature allows weaker players to overtake him in the standings, because they berserk and he doesn't.

    Jerry would probably win more tournaments on a server that doesn't have berserking, but it's hard to imagine him playing anywhere else.

  18. My heart was racing and I was so relieved when u pulled that draw

  19. That game with the rating eater was hilarious. lololol ggs, Jerry.

  20. Mouse tactics ahahah. Classic Jerry

  21. You bang on about playing good chess, but it seems it's just as good to focus on quick end moves

  22. Jerry is always cool as a cucumber. Juuuust misses the podium on the last game and literally no change in his voice

  23. Every time Jerry says "night move" I think of that song "Night Moves"
