  1. Trading pieces when in front and pawns when behind is very useful to know. Thank you.

  2. Principle 16 – bishop and knight trade for rook and pawn (both 6 points).
    That's one thing I'll never get about chess – how you can value a rook at 5 points while a bishop is only 3. They do exactly the same thing, save for the fact the bishop is on the diagonal whilst the rook goes horizontal / vertical. I suppose the rook gets the higher value for the protection it can offer / mayhem it can cause behind the pawns.
    Great video.

  3. Very good tips to remember. Thanks for the video…

  4. Is it me or did you jump no 29 while explaining "when ahead material trade pieces not pawns".😢

  6. Weird question, but… What software did you use to produce this video? Nice job!

  7. Amazing! Thanks a lot! Great to see genuine people wanting to help others!

  8. I've actually destroyed players using almost exclusively pawns before. I once won an entire game using nothing but my pawns and the queen. no other pieces moved the entire game.

    I know this would never work against truly skilled opponents, but the people I was playing weren't slouches either.

    I've never been able to recreate this, but sometimes winning can occur by simply subverting expectations.

  9. Thanks for going over these principles I’m sure most is common sense chess strategy always good to refreshen the mind to be able to respond to these situations when they arise in a Game

  10. not a pro player, but happy to say I already knew all of these. Most of them I learned by simply playing chess over Many years and figured out on my own through trial and error.

  11. I finally reached 1050/1065. My highest peak ever was 1300, out of luck. Now it´s time to start watching some videos like this one and reading a few books.

  12. Still searching for principle no. 29 🙄

  13. As far as you go on playing chess, the less you pay attention to rules

  23. I don't agree that much early castling of king like shown in this video because opponent can concentrate his all pieces towards that corner after that . according to me we have to suspense the opponent in which side we are going to castle
