  1. Y was the white make the Frist move

  2. I am here after watching Netflix Queen Gambit🫶💋

  3. I came here after seeing my cousins playing chess where I don't even know which is king and queen😂

  4. Guys i am really clueless . Like i know the basics but how do i improve my skills? I feel dumb ! Please help me.

  5. I heard taxes and fines paid to the bank are placed as a pot in the center of the board. When someone lands on Free Parking, they receive that pot.

  6. bro i have a confusion. If you block Check by putting a piece in front of King, how about we Capture that piece that you used to block the check and then King is again in Check… Am i right?

  7. Me learning for club activity in school- namay

  8. I'll have to watch this atleast 4 times for learning it properly but it's much more useful than any other video(I'll have to watch it 4 times because I can't remember how they move😅😀

  9. When castling pawn must be in front or not,or if any pawn missing can we still castle..

  10. Very good video you have make 😮❤

  11. but i dont understand that stalemate part when the black queen has covered the three squares and white has no legal moves. why does it call a draw? isn't that mean black win and white lose? why does it have to be called a draw by a stalemate? can someone explain please thankyou so much 🙏🏼

  12. It can't be simpler than this. Thank you for the lesson

  13. Great video , But Rooks are not only pieces that stop you from Castling , Also other pieces could do !

  14. Also one last point regarding castling that you missed. You CANNOT castle if your King will be in Check after castling.

  15. Is it must to do Castling with three pawns not moved from position

  16. what's ur chess playing app in paly store ??

  17. Hey, I have a question regarding the checks, what is the limit of saying check to opponent? Is only first time or we have to say it every time when give them check. And also clear this dought: suppose we have position of opponent king, his knight and mine rook in similar straight path such a way that his knight is between his king and mine rook, and I have already given the check before once and now he has changed his knight position who is saving his king from my rook by mistake or anything you can consider, so now in my turn can I directly hit his king with my rook and end the game? Is this is possible or what, please clarify this scene.

    I hope my question will reach you soon.

    Thanks.

  18. Chess is extremely complicated with lots of rules

  19. Thank for the easy to understand video

  20. I just eat now I have to eat more 👍

  21. While I’ve played chess casually for a long time, still learned a couple things here. Thanks for the short and concise explanations. Very well done and nice illustrations.
