Blitz Chess Tournament #19 (3|0)

This is a 55-minute tournament I competed in on lichess. This tournament was created, and 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. Jerry, just wondering on your thoughts of playing an immediate c7 to c5 to c4 in the French advanced for black

  2. I think you need to use colour correction for your streaming software, everything looks pale.

  3. Jerry, download the Magnus app and do a Chessnetwork vs Carlsen ages 5-27 series. Would be great.

  4. Great video as always! Your commentary throughout was fun to listen to even for a super casual chess player like me!

  5. Nice tournament performance as always. You might have forgotten about your bishop on a2 in the grand prix game, looks like Nxf7 would have been crushing (34:40).

  6. Jerry! Just think about this one move at 34:41 that caught my eyes. What if you consider Rxf7? Or even Nxf7 right away? Forcing the black rook to take otherwise you would give mate. Peace to all. And have a nice year full of love and chess.

  7. I wonder if hiimgosu was Aman Hambleton. Eric Hansen in first.

  8. Hello Jerry, what do you think of the Bird Opening?

  9. I don’t know where in PA you live, but it was almost 50 here in Fleetwood.

  10. Jerry what is your best series for learning about your journey/reletionship through/with chess over time? I've been playing chess for a couple decades now and can only imagine the trajectory of your career.

    Big fan btw keep it up

  11. That game against suwoo was definitely "weird".

  12. I'm always on the lookout for your old nemesis Ferrari. The dude would always berserk and make it exciting

  13. Penguin signed up but then got cold feet because he knew you'd style on him, Jerry.

  14. Really like how much respect Jerry gives his much lower rated opponents (1390 in this case). He doesn't go for cheap tactics or a crazy/unsound attack, but plays and analyses as if he's playing a master.

  15. Everybody knows Jerry.

    52:53 Jerry attempts a castle of his queen.

    "I'm cool with double b-pawns, 'cause my rook will be happy."

    Fun drinking game: every time Jerry uses the sunglasses emoji, buy a chess set and throw it into a bonfire.

  16. Ok Howard Stern ACTUALLY plays chess???? Proof please?

  17. Bc5+ instead of d6 in the last game won an exchance because Rxh2 and Qh4# . maybe not that bad after Rf2 Qh4 h3 Qg3

  18. The player hmmmmmm lost to a user who used computer assistance. Look at gunnar304's lichess profile….

  19. great skills, Fun to watch ! Thx for Sharing 🙂

  20. why was his time so short in his second last game?

  21. Dear Jerry, I "learned how the pieces move" as a kid and lost chess for years. Now I'm in my 30's and have become interested in chess again. A few months ago an Agadmator video randomly showed up in my recommended feed. He INSTANTLY got me hooked on chess again and I credit him for that. But after about a month of faithfully sponging up only Agadmator videos I decided to see what else was out there in the wide world of YouTube. Found other great teachers like Mato, and then I found your channel. Now I really love watching your channel among a few others. It's all new and exciting for me – there was no internet/technology when I encountered chess as a kid in the 90's. So yeah, I am an adult beginner – don't know what rating I would be but I can just beat Magnus age 8. Too scared to try age 9 yet still, I'm getting better at playing the younger ages. It's just very fun being a beginner and learning about/admiring great chess players of both past and present. Your style is educational and interesting and I thoroughly enjoy your content. Thank you Jerry for making chess interesting for me! I wish you the all the best in 2018.

  22. Hey Jerry I saw you comment on Gracie Breakdown. Do you do BJJ?

  23. Hey, Jerry! Since you live in PA, are you a Steelers or Eagles fan?

  24. Hey Jerry, are you going to review that AlphaZero game where AZ sacs the exchange in order to lock Stockfish's queen in the corner? Amazing stuff, especially after watching it neutralize bishops in its other games.

    Or did you review it already and I missed it?

  25. i didn't get notification on this video. weird

  26. You didn't get the last game's point???

  27. 3:00 Bg3 not winning there? Not sure if I'm missing something

  28. 22:48, after Ree8, there was a tactic for white – Rxh3, and after white retakes with the rook (Rxh3), a knight could fork the king and queen on g4.

  29. I'm so happy to be back watching these. I missed Jerry's content!

  30. PA is definitely not the most beautiful state in the union. Sorry Jerry but that title belongs to New Hampshire.

  31. If you play one minute games, why are three minute games harder for you in terms of time?

  32. ~1700 at best here. I can relate to your moves in almost all the openings and throughout most of the middlegame; it’s when you launch into endgame at bullet pace that you lose me.

    In any case thanks for ALL your commentary. I sometimes wonder if you sacrifice accuracy and time in the tourneys for it?
