  1. sir can you make more video for beginners. It is really helping a player like myself who is not able to cross 800

  2. This was an amazing video for beginners like me! Would love to see more such videos

  3. 1:05 Suhani would have said 1.d4 but Sagar denied saying "ye nahi khel sakthi is video mai"

  4. sagar sir you teach undoubtedly, very good. we are fortunate that we got to know about you through samay raina. otherwise our life would have been worthless and most importantly waste because "i"… toh most probably never had learnt chess. u make it easy for all of us. and best of luck in the esports "chess super league"

  5. Please make this a series…..i too want to know more about openings endgames..basically i want to know chess

  6. Loved it!! Please make a series on this

  7. Thanks for teaching these openings. I only understood the first one before watching this tutorial.

  8. Really great VOD! I gave few critical pointers on how to start the game strong and plan ahead. Even though I am sure I won't remember all the different names πŸ˜…

    Just a quick trivial question – are there any openings named after an Indian player? I just know Ez 1.B3 😜

  9. Teaching is a skill and Sagar bhai killed

  10. Sir really thank you , was looking for something like this for a long time …
    I have played lot of these opening but was never able to connect to names …
    Can we have a series of these …it would be really helpfull

  11. I have played every opening with black and white .. but I never cared about names of openings this is too good. Also he told alternate names which chess engines tell.
    Agreed with @eknath Make a series of this !

  12. A fun practical session to learn some basic openings which, otherwise, can get too theoretical.

  13. I enjoyed this video a great deal! I have played chess for many years but have not understood many of the strategies and underlying reasoning for the openings. Thank you so very much!

  14. Love the way you teach sagar bhai❀️

  15. I guess only IM (future GM) Sagar Shah could explain all the main openings in just one 20min video and make it so simple to follow!

  16. Suhani was getting all the moves correct coz she read Sagar's mind of what moves he wanted her to play πŸ˜‚

  17. Great video I love the fast explanation but now I need some crypto πŸ˜†πŸ˜† Gettings from Argentina πŸ‡¦πŸ‡·πŸ‡¦πŸ‡·πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜»πŸ˜»

  18. i'm a beginner and it''s really help me to understand how chess actually work …

  19. Susha smashing oponents in cob gangwar..now I know the secret !!!

    Also, Rohan Gujaral please see this video πŸ˜‘

  20. I want to learn how to play chess frm where should I start I learn how pieces work any suggestions please

  21. Thank you so much! This was very helpful!

  22. Sagar sir should be called "The Supreme Teacher".

  23. This is a perfect video for beginners. Not like those videos where you are just reading out notations at full speed!

  24. Please make more beginner videos like these & also please continue the series & then each of openings in depth sector by sector.
    Thanks in advance

  25. what would i have to give to have Sagar Shah teach me chess

  26. Bhai thora hindi. Bhi bolo hame bhi samaj aye

  27. Instead of puutting girl's name you should have put Teacher's name

  28. Thank you very much Sagar sir. πŸ™‚ You are an expert teacher! πŸ‘πŸ‘ πŸ™

  29. when the video on 1. d4 will come ??
