  3. Why the rook goes to D1 instead of E1 behind the Queen

  4. I love this content and shared it with my nephews- thank you for posting it!

  5. Sad to hear this generation of some desperate learners some of it they dont need to hear some explaination of human analogy skeptical move, because of database explain and computer suggestion that serves them as talent and memory. Computer this days resolved conflict.

  11. Wow amazing lesson thank you so much ❀️😊

  12. I was looking for this video again and I found it. It's never bad to brush up on the basics

  13. This teacher is so good. I'm learning how to play chess as a 36yr old!

  14. Why is that you did not let the BLACK STUDENT answer when the BLACK STUDENT RAISED HIS HAND?

  15. Any video on rook vs queen end game by GM Akobian ?

  16. My respects to GM Akobian. His teachings are quite good if we consider that he is just a human being. He is not at my same level in chess (3600 rated), but he is very clear to teach mere mortals.

  17. QA-4 check, forces pawn take take check, forces black knight to block, (queens gambit accepted from white)

  18. Most of the students there are children.

  19. queen xf7 check is ckeckmate in the last puzzle

  20. I am 65 years old and learning. Great teacher.

  21. God damn it's alot of information to remember for someone like me who's usually don't remember where I putted my keys last time

  22. What is the name of the video with the next 6 openings in it. TY

  23. Very informative for me…
    Thanks Sir

  24. I see two possibilities: 1) This man has an advanced degree in teaching methods from a very prestigious university where he was at the head of his class, or 2) He has absolutely incredible instincts for teaching complex subject matter. I have known numerous professors with high level training on teaching techniques who were nowhere near as effective as Mr Akobian. If he is self-taught and operating on instincts, I hope he has a lot of children and they all become teachers.
