  9. Nice summary and very informative!. It's not mentioned explicitly, but demonstrated implicitly, but one of the common mistakes players make when they first learn to make plans is being too ambitious with their plans, as in thinking that a plan has to be this grand overarching thing that unfolds over the duration of the whole game. Your plans can be smaller than that and you can have more than one in a game. Like your first plan could be to take control of a particular square as an outpost and secure a piece on it. Then, after accomplishing that, you can make a new plan based on using that well placed piece to support an attack on the king or to pressure another area of the board. Or if your opponent thwarts your first plan by covering the square you targeted with a pawn, you can re-evaluate and formulate a new plan to target the weaknesses created by that pawn move. And if the opponent counters that by forcing a trade of the weak pawn, you can then proceed with a third plan to infiltrate on the open file the pawn trade created. And so forth.

    Another thing to remember is that plans must be specific. "I will move my pieces to the K-side to checkmate the K" is not a plan. You want to have specific squares where you want to put your pieces, or specific files or diagonals you want to open and control, or specific weaknesses you want to attack or put pressure on, in mind.

  10. It's nice when each of your pieces that you want to use in your mating attack can move to an unattacked square. I'm seldom that lucky.

  11. Is he a noob there's a fork in the first move. find yourself if you can I AM NOT GONNA SHOW YOU!!!!

  12. Me being an absolute beginner, really loving your videos, youre probaly getting to be more known than Carlsen :p . I also find it very useful to play 30min games rather than 10min games. Having time to think the moves thru and not making big blunders like I do all the time in 10min games. Thanks for the great tips and videos!

  13. You have a wonderful gift to teach the most important things in a chess game. Thank you so much for taking the time to instruct us about these complex chess games. Much appreciated!

    And then i moved to my games. And watch and think and think and think. And can't aplly to my games. Because i don't see opportunity's.

  24. I love this video,,make more videos of this nature please

  25. If you look GJ chess repertoire for black instead of white you'll see a similar position it has helped me to get to almost 1500 now the c4 break is crazy.

  26. 9:37 when I saw this position my immediate first reaction was Ne2 followed by c4, looks like typical Kings Indian position but with white

  27. Hey Gotham, been following for years. I am sometimes struggling to come up with a plan and this video is highly underappreciated (seeing how you now make 500k to 2m+ views in a couple of a days

  28. As a beginner, I wish you would make some vids that explained moves and strategies more slowly, it's hard to follow this pace.

  29. I create plans as if the opponent is gonna sacrifice all his pieces to me
