Pirc Defense, Classical variation | Blitz Chess #410

I really missed out on time “gainers” in this game. Long after some early shuffling with a clueless light-squared bishop, an instructive endgame was produced highlighting a “tempo pawn”. This was a 5|0 time control game, where I was playing with the white pieces. The opening played was the Pirc Defense, Classical variation.

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.

  1. "You move like they do. I've never seen anyone move that fast"

  2. 10:01 daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayum I wish I was good like that, how can you mate like this with zero seconds Jesus pls make a video teaching that kind of stuff pls pls pls

  3. There were likes on this video before there were views

  4. Every opening from me, see chessnetwork immediately press play on ChessNetwork.

  5. Again a huge 430 points above your opponent. I very much enjoy the Magnus titled arena videos but again I have to say I'd enjoy the blitz videos a lot more if you played stronger players who'd give you a real challenge, I know there are plenty on lichess. Not sure if others agree?

  6. Damn, that first game! Truly brilliant to remain calm and being flawless. Wonderful to watch^^

  7. why was this recommendet half an hour to late? 😂

  8. Very interesting match) You always win in such games,yes i would post only wins too)

  9. It's probably a drawn king and pawn ending. OR IS IT?

  10. dat pre-move magic at the end :') Jerry you're a beast!

  11. This guy is 2600 blitz so he should easily be an IM

  12. 13… b6 at the 2:20(ish) mark could've been to blunt the bishop a bit, maybe also wanting to move the rook. I often make pawn moves just for the purpose of giving the bishop less moves along a diagonal, and SF/Leela often don't have an issue with it if there isn't a tactic I missed

  13. I CANNOT believe you won this with that little time left.

  14. King pin is back, man been waiting for this day all my life, its been forever. You left us hanging to go find other channels to watch out there, which wont be as fun as yours. Hopefully you will try harder to post even one video daily, that will make us happy.

  15. Damn your computer is a beast. You get to depth 25 within seconds. Takes me minutes…

    Instructive endgame.

  16. But how do you play that quickly though, if I pre move it takes at least 0.5 seconds. Got 60 mb down 20 up, no latency otherwise. Weird.

  17. How can we know that Jerry isn't an AI?

  18. Hahahaha absolutely brilliant. You are a master!! “No. I win this.” 😎

  19. Magnus been teaching you some end game. I'm staring to think it's all about the end game.

  20. Gone too long. JB gonna grab your big posse. =)
