  1. Thank you pls keep this series coming. I was struggling against fianchetto variation was very helpfull. Much love <3

  2. Hey I am so happy since I got 1100 Elo points in lichess by playing only kings Indian as black and I played for a month!!

  3. Normal chess teachers: The kings indian defence generally consists of a fianchetto and d4.
    Hikaru: I believe it was the October of 1998…

  4. Me: lost the track and started day dreaming at about the middle
    Hikaru: so there you guys go
    Me: wakes up… so uhm do I watch it again or do I pretend I get it…

  5. i play better and see more moves after watching the speedruns and the matrix bullet vids… but these lessons never really do it for me… im mostly focused on how he can remember specific moves in specific game all the way back to the 90s… that always throws me off

  6. Hikaru played Kings Indian a lot in SCC this year and won.

  7. That beginning was kinda XD but thanks!

    I love play against kingโ€™s Indian but maybe Iโ€™ll try play kings Indian.

  8. Theory and Computers ruin the experience of Chess.
    The whole idea of Chess is the struggle between minds, but when memorization of move orders, theory and computers come into play, the art, the inspiration of the struggle is gone, and becomes inhuman.

  9. Hey hikaru I just wanted to say thanks because yesterday the rating list (for New Rated players) was Published… It showed That I got a Rating of 1400 (I KNOW That It Isn't A Lot, But It means so Much to me) All Thanks To Your Videos… It's Lessons Like This That helped me Improve My Chess..

  10. I tried the king indian defense against my mom , it didn't work hikaru why?

  11. Could you do a video like how to play against certain openings? Like more beginner tutorial, say in this opening with both kings castles short we would usually go for this, in that opening for thatโ€ฆ you know what I mean? Just what are the strengths and weaknesses of some common openings and would the game strategies be. I would enjoy anything from 5 minutes to one hour, Iโ€™m just curious how u see these. Hm?

  12. What chess app allows what his doing with the chessboard (with the arrows, red squares)?

  13. Congratulations Hikaru my favorite player became blitz no1 .

  14. Iโ€™ve been looking for one of these for weeks now thanks so much!

  15. No one likes French defense. No one does tutorials๐Ÿ˜ž

  16. I have been trying to understand this opening. Thank you for this

  17. Hey Hikaru, howzit? Feelin recovered? Congrats on a performance and the rating thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway not sure in which hotel u got stuck, but if u able to walk around, there are few music jam sessions close in the city center. Maybe keen to join (i guess blues vibe)? Drinks on us!
