  1. 14:54 – I did recently take the queen of an opponent under similar circumstances. Trapping the queen with a knight.

  2. At 7:41 he couldโ€™ve captured with the king and let the rook defend the other rook

  3. Thanks for your quality vids Nelson. Iโ€™m working through a bunch of them and theyโ€™re really helping to devise an improvement plan. I really appreciate you backing up observations with metrics taken from analysing 100 games. Thatโ€™s class and very underrated. Thanks man ๐Ÿป

  4. Now days even 1100 wouldn't make these mistakes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. 9:12 a triple fork , a double attack and a pin at the same time

  6. In a tournament game I had a really stupid tactics mistake when I sacrificed my bishop to deflect a rook and deliver a checkmate. And if he doesn't take my bishop, I deliver a checkmate anyway because I add an extra attacking piece I didn't even consider the fact that he could capture my bishop with his bishop which had been pinned just a move ago. Just a move ago meant that it was no longer pinned by the time I decided to deflect the rook.

  7. I even recommend ur channel to my friends. Ur content are so valuble๐Ÿ‘Œ

  8. Thanks dear grand master Although most of the players know that all but listening your analysis makes a very good very different impact

  9. I refuse to believe the last game was played by 1400sโ€ฆ even 1400 lichess canโ€™t be that bad, right? Right!?!

  10. Why are these 1400s way worse than the ones I used to play with, they didnโ€™t use to make a lot of these silly careless mistakes shown in the video
