  1. I’ve only just embedded a new structured approach to learning chess and this will help me learn from every game I play from now on! Thank you so much

  2. I needed this; I haven't been analyzing my games in the most optimal way! Great explanation πŸ‘

  3. THANK YOU VERY MUCH NELSON……PLEASE MAKE MORE VIDEOS USING CHESS ENGINES……WE LEARN ALOT FROM YOUR VIDEOS

  4. This was a great video. I've been studying, playing for months and this is the best tip I've gotten. I just signed up for your channel. Thanks alot. Richard

  5. nice! can you do this on lichess as well?

  6. I would choose more than 1 analysis line since life is not black and white, or purely right or wrong. That's why doing puzzles can be infuriating or discouraging. You play something almost as good and the computer says "WRONG! Now you start over, sucker!" And sometimes you just didn't do exactly what was in the game they got it from, and it was just as good!

  7. Another great video. Love how you are giving the tools to self-improve and understand the game.

  8. Really very very useful. Thank you. Expecting more of such

  9. You are fast becoming my go to tutor. That is the first time I have understood how to analyse my games. Thanks.

  10. It is an amazing video. I found what I was looking for. Thank you.

  11. Good video but too simple. Maybe someone on your channel needs this, but most of us probably already analyze πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ. I think if you went into the lines more thoroughly telling us your thoughts it might be better. You might see it before we do, so we can try to figure out how you got there.

  12. So the numbers are numerical chances of winning, or does it relate to the point value of lost/soon to be lost pieces?

  13. This is a good way of training your brain to see possibilities, using the engine and tempering it to your intuition so you're not just 1) doing the moves the computer tells you to do, learning nothing or 2) playing a losing game against the engine (like I've been doing)

  14. Oh man that's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot!!!!

  15. I like your videos, cause it addresses the basic questions which are posed by the normal or intermediate chess enthusiasts – keep posting such insightful videos πŸ‘

  16. This is by far one of the BEST chess videos I've seen. I'm just learning now. I'm around 1200. I think analyzing my games like this will help! THANKS! πŸ™‚

  17. I don’t comment often but want to thank you Nelson for your amazingly helpful content! You clearly care about helping the chess community and players like me who are trying to improve their game. Keep it up! πŸ™πŸ»

  18. It was definitely helpful Nelson! I know that I will need to watch it multiple times so I can take notes.

  19. 10:40 was an epiphany for me! I have been hearing all kinds of advice from various players, both of similar ratings, up to GM's tell me not to use the engine. I was feeling overwhelmed while trying to analyze my games, and didn't know where to turn. Your advice has made so much sense to me. It makes perfect sense I don't know why I didn't see this idea sooner in my chess improvement journey! I've said it before…Keep the great content coming!!!

  20. Interesting, but no one in there right mind would have taken the pond when their rook was in check. That simply never would have happened. πŸ™

  21. Hey, I'm looking for the video Chess Vibes did on using Excel to learn from your losses, but I can't find it. Does anyone know what that video is called?

  22. Love these kind of videos! A great example of teaching how to learn.

  23. After the knight move, couldn't you just shach with Bishop and finish him with the tower?

  24. Yes it was great. What other, how to study, videos you got?

  25. Thank you very much! That was hilarious teaching! Please make more tuitions for working with engine.

  26. I saw what the computer is thinking but how can I see it by myself.

  27. 4:18 or just use the evaluation bar? thre you can see big changes much quicker because its eye catching and a picture, so if that bar jumps it's very clear.

  28. What a great teaching video. I learned SO much!!

  29. This is the best tutorial I've seen on how to use chess engine analysis for self-training. Many thanks! Very well done!!

  30. Excellent Nelson !! Watched many other videos where they say not to follow the computer moves as they don’t make any sense to us humans. U have just reversed my thoughts on doing what u say πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

  31. A lost game is only truly a lost if you learn nothing from it. Thanks for the video.

  32. Very helpful thanks I am very new and have mostly been doing puzzles and was wondering if I could play out alternative puzzles using that same program. I get frustrated when I think I see a sound way to play out the puzzle but it won't allow my move.

  33. As with much good advice, everything you say here is obvious – AFTER you've said it. Thank you. Very good video.

  34. Hello. Thank you for this video. I'm very new to chess and this is the only video I've found that breaks the process down in an easy to understand way for me .

    Just one thing though… I can't get how this helps play better in future (totally different) games.
    If you learn that you should have done this or that in THAT game can that really just automatically help you make better choices in OTHER games with completely different moves.

    Every game is the first time right?

    It obviously works but what do I do after I've discovered that in THAT game I should have moved the Queen there.
    Those pieces in exactly those places will probably never happen again.

    Thanks for a great explanation of the process though. Best I've seen.

  35. Very interesting stuff, indeed.
    Once you know the mistakes you've made, how do you make sure you'll remember those? After all, the fact that you understand something once, doesn't mean you'll remember it, especially after a while! Do you simply review the same game from time to time (without any particular method), or is there a more systematic approach maybe using spaced repetition?
