Blitz Chess Tournament #6 (Chess 960)

This is a 55-minute Fischer Random (Chess 960) tournament I competed in on lichess, namely the Estrin ArenaTournament. 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. new here… what is that starting position called? never saw that

  2. You can only be paired if you're in the tournament lobby, so if you want to watch a game at the same time, do it in another tab.

  3. I'm about to hit the gym, Jerry. So, I'll finish watching the video later. BTW, I'll give them a good show 🙂

  4. That king learned how to teleport – please nerf castling !

  5. if we think of the tournament as a 1.5 min tournament, wouldn't that increase our chances of winning?

  6. You should try a crazy house tournament, that would be fun as hell as well.

  7. I really feel like you should be berzerking a lot of these games Jerry. You spend so little time in the opening compared to regular games, and they're usually over before you've even used a minute!

  8. A lot of you don't realize that Jerry could berzerk these tournaments and win every on of them but he cares more about educating his viewers rather than winning. Jerry serves a higher purpose .


  10. How many times can you castle? I thought that could only be done once as a first move for the king.

  11. We as viewers would like you to beserk against easy opponents 🙂 everytime you come 2nd overall its because someone like ferrarri gets free points and quick games. even when they lose a few matches.

  12. Great tournament as always Jerry. 🙂

  13. +ChessNetwork Hello Jerry , I'm in love with chess and I have a question , I play for a year and was up whether with a constant study can I become a national master by myself, but I have spoken with stronger players than me, and they told me to become a master is a matter of opportunities and not something you can achieve by yourself. This is true?

  14. Hi Jerry. Have you watched the Baku Olympiad Chess these days? I'd love to see you do an analysis video about the game between GM Le Quang Liem (Vietnam) and GM Kenny Solomon (South Africa). There are weird moves that could be very interesting that I'm not very clear about them. Hope you to see this. Thank you very much! Be a fan.

  15. Alex Yordanov here. Huge fan, Jerry 🙂 Sorry for the stalemate 😀

  16. Why are there no chess960 OTB tournaments around the world? I have a conspirative feeling elites are trying to maintain classical chess, because money is still good i guess. Can someone give me a better suggestion?

  17. hahaha, that castling in the first game looked amazing!

  18. Whoa, so how exactly does castling work in this game?? Very confusing sometimes, esp. when the king and rook are next to each other.

  19. Can someone explain the scoring for this tournament? I'm seeing people get one, two three and four points from games. Something to do with 'being hot'?

  20. why isn't chess960 more popular? seems to me like regular chess is too much about memorizing specific lines.
