  1. Dude you are commenting game… Even a GM has to concentrate when he/she low on time… Your are not a GM. Maybe better to talk less at the end!? I have never done it… Seems difficult to me. Just an idea

  2. I know it was a tough loss at the end but I think that first game was overall pretty good. With the longer time the calculation and planning was better and it was pretty high level play. You seemed more comfortable just gotta stay focus until the end. It does take more to play those games in time and focus so maybe not every game has to be that time control but I think it is valuable to play games like that at least occasionally.

  3. 1:03:05 it's a mistake because white can follow with c4 and put pressure on your centre with threats of Qb3 carrying more weight because the bishops not protecting b7

  4. The breaks that aren't a break are the best breaks

  5. "Austin come back to bed"

    *Austin playing chess*: ʰᵒʳʳᶦᵇˡᵉ, ʲᵘˢᵗ ˢᵒ ᵇᵃᵈ⁻ᵈ⁵ ᶦˢ ᵃᵖᵖᵃʳᵉⁿᵗˡʸ ᵇᵉˢᵗ, ʷʰʸ ʷᵒᵘˡᵈ ᴵ⁻

  6. I also play the accelerated dragon and i'm 1720 so I find your videos really interesting.

  7. You start the game pumped and insecure. Do some relaxation first. You will do better. You’re worth it!

  8. I have never seen a white knight on b4 in the Dragon. Sry that you were right when you say that looses.

  9. that was a tough first game. You had em.

  10. Yeah you will definitely get those points back, surprised he’s not closed yet. Impressive how quickly you realized it after he was making some sus moves there.

  11. I had you pegged for more of a big dumb dog kinda guy, but the fact that you have a Vincent, and you realize that scratching his butt is more important than calculating your next move is totally awesome to me. Get some rest, but don't forget to feed the fish before you go to bed. Oh, and speaking from 32 years of experience being married, listen to Pamela. When it comes to knowing how our day affects our feelings, women are like grandmasters. Cheers.

  12. I don't think that session was quite as bad as it must have felt to you. That second game needs to be taken out of the equation for obvious reasons – which leaves you with a split session of a win and a loss. You outplayed your opponent in the first game and it was the pressure of impending time trouble that seemed to cause you to miss a couple of one-move wins (ouch! – that mate-in-one). With a couple of more minutes on the clock, I'm guessing that would have been two wins in the session and a bunch of good vibes. So, take some positives away from the session – it wasn't all bad news. Keep the faith!

  13. maybe he was good at lichess or otb chess and was just progressing through the ranks.

  14. Omg the first game, I'm so sorry man, those loses are painful

  15. yeah i dont think the second guy was a cheater, but if it makes you feel better you can claim it. The dude is playing normal games with normal accuracies and normal mistakes, propbably just secretely higher rated and is having an easy time with sub 1800 rated players.
