  1. Sagar sir please continue this series really loved it ❣️❣️

  2. Sagar bhai this is actually not for 0-600. They should focus just on not making blunders. Knowing fancy openings and names won't help if they just blunder a queen or pieces.

  3. Just want you to give my opinion that the video is kinda distracting. It would have been better with just the virtual board. Rest the explanation and moves for the beginners are looking superb.

  4. Thank u Sagar sir for your wisdom it had helped me improve my game .

  5. teachers like sagar shah make a children interested in the stuff and maintain the interest which is necessary to progress . sagar sir i have learnt a lot from todays video . love from tripura

  6. Wow. This was super informative session would love more of this in more detail guruji OP Susha OP <3

  7. this is a video made quite well.
    it is useful even for the 1500s or higher who have learnt the openings but not necessary with all this clarity behind the moves!
    this kind of clarity is certainly very useful, so, thank you.

  8. Looks like its finally time i start improving chess. 😄😄😄

  9. Please do continue with this series, so that many like me can learn along with SuSha. Love the way you teach and clarify the moves.

  29. Such a great session !!i wish i had a coach like sagar sir!!🥺😍
    Credits also go to amruta maam for recording the session so beautifully!

  30. Sagar: an important rule of openings is to control the central squares and develop your minor pieces
    Ze Beast: 1. b3

  31. This is really good. Multiple openings in a short timing. Please prepare more videos at some detail level

  32. You teach critical things in a very funny way which is really important 😀

  33. Wow. I used to hear people say advanced, classical, exchange (French, CaroKann) but never paid attention why. Very happy to see this and understand the naming. Now I will remember them automatically and in turn remember the moves as well 😄
