  1. Zajcev literally means from a rabit or of rabit,rabits…if you would like to say -rabits hole you would say -zajcev rupa

  2. Of course, yes – your breakdown of master chess is so great – helps us see how to plan, how to think about chess.

  3. His calculation is so big that it itself took an IM to explain it in 22 minutes !😳

  4. What a fantastic guy!
    I'm talking about YOU Levy!
    Love your work! Nobody else would've been able to narrate this game in a more just way!
    My fav Chess teacher 🤗

  5. Bro really thinks he is Kasparov 💀

  6. Please levi give us more of these videos i enjoy listening to you explain the amazing world of chess

  7. Try analyzing emory tate the father of Andrew Tate, he also has incredible ideas

  8. Great stuff. Russian brain is devious

  9. that game is such a beauty! I'm in awe with Gasparov's genius!

  10. Thanks gotham for these amazing videos that I learn a lot from

  11. Bro, Zaycev was a legendary soviet sniper from WWII

  12. Kasparov not only calculates insane variations, but he puts all of the pieces BACK to their original positions for EACH variation he explains. This is why he is the Greatest of All Time.

  13. One of the strongest rivalry in the history of chess

  14. karpov has not taken knight on h6 with rook initially it means even karpov calculated all these variations accurately !!!!

  15. I am pretty good with patterns, but I am terrible at remembering names. Is it necessary to be able to dictate your strategy or is it enough to develop and execute isolated battles through the endgame?

  16. Garry is ABSOLUTELY brilliant. only a grandmaster in his level could find so many different calculations that each one of them lead to a worse outcome than the other! you either lose piece advantage of completely lose the game! ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!

  17. I watched the first K/K match on PBS. In that first match, Karpov dominated Kasparov in the first 9 games, winning five. Kasparov stalled Karpov afterwards, playing for draws in a war of attrition that resulted in the longest world championship match in history.

    I actually believe that before the match, a young Kasparov wasn't quite ready for chess at Karpov's level. However, it is a corollary that if you play someone who is better than yourself, you will get better, and I believe that is exactly what happened to Kasparov. In an odd way, Karpov wound up creating his own worst enemy and Garry ultimately profited from this ongoing rivalry. That's my own theory, anyway.

  18. I wonder if France gave him a boost of creativity 🤔

  19. Since you asked, I wouldn't mind yet another perspective on Fischer/Spassky 1972 World Championship Game 6.

  20. This video showed me so many different tactics and a new way of thinking about attacking chess, I went from 1790-2080

  21. Kasparov is a freak! What a genius!
