The SECRET To Stop Blundering Your Pieces In Chess

In this video I explain a method to stop blundering your pieces in chess. I use it all the time, and I think everyone else should too, especially in the lower ratings. This is episode 2 of my speedrun to 2000 and in this episode I’m rated 500. Hope you enjoy the video 🙂

  1. since i stopped playing 6 years ago, just started again and my score dropped straight from 800something to 250, now i cant keep it over 400. i feel almost as s t u pid as our "president" who "isn't mentally fit to stand trial over the classified documents he stole". btw , he was no smarter 6 years ago when dems / fake news were cheering him on to be president & when he hid in his basement and forced people around him to cover their face & take shots & he took shots then caught covid anyway. im tired of being censored online for remembering this stuff.

  2. Bobby Fischer hated chess close to the end of his life. Said it was mostly memorization

  3. Calm and logical. I like it. Thank you!

  4. Anna's clock counting down is really stressing me out

  5. She makes me want to blunder my piece vigorously.

  6. Best lesson of this game was at the end where she avoided stalemate by promoting to the rare rook, so as not to pin the King without a move into check (stalmate). Very rare you don't choose either the Queen or a knight.

  7. No, there’s 100% chance I’m watching this channel to see you. I don’t even play chess.

  8. "At one point your opponent will blunder" Oh, thank you very much, that finally explains why I always lose when I play against myself. By the way I love your channel.

  9. That was fascinating. As an engineer you would think that I would just naturally think that way… but… I never have. I feel much more confident to try chess again (I haven't played for probably 40 years). Great presentation!

  10. Wow! Very informative and easy to understand. I am just an occasional player, and I will be putting into practice what I learned here.

  11. I was born way down in the deep deep south
    I met a pretty pretty woman with a real big mouth
    I'm gonna make that big mouthed woman my wife
    I'm gonna love that woman for the rest of my life

  12. Anna, i am a beginner chess player, at 61 years of age. This is the best lesson i have learned so far. I love all your videos, especially when they feature you with your parents. So entertaining.

  13. u r soooo cute thanks for the help 🙂

  14. Whenever I watch her videos I'm so distracted by how large her mouth is, and she's so expressive with her lips that she frequently opens her mouth extremely wide while talking. It's really hard to listen to what she's actually saying.

  15. 4:32 why not knight to b3, protecting the center pawn on d5 one more time and giving pressure to the pawn on c5?

  16. I am the 1% who is watching the video because you are cute 🙂

  17. Like always, you're awesome. Always have your pieces protected, and make your opponent blunder. Anna, you ought to get a toothpaste brand to be your sponsor your channel. Your smile is so beautiful. A clothing sponsor, too. Everybody loves you, and you will have a big influence.

  18. Anna, the word you wanted is spelled just as it sounds… s h e n a n a g i n s kinda like when a gorgeous woman like you is always smiling, batting her eyes and distracting men's right thinking.. lol 😂

  19. anyone else got into panic mode with like 8 seconds on the clock while ana calmly explains on…

  20. The problem with this trick is that this way you'll never sacrifice a piece! I really wonder what's the "trick" there? I can only imagine the "Polgar method" of training tactics a lot!

  21. It seems simple, basic and logical…..but a newbie like me tends to forget this! xD Thanks a lot for the video and analysis, that helps a LOT!!!

  22. "if you're watching this video there's a 99% chance it's b/c.." you're really good at explaining chess and keeping it fun! 😌✌️👑♟️😅

  23. Isn't it a little counter intuitive that when you find a good move that where your piece isn't defended you don't do it?

  24. ok, question from a noob. at 6:29 why not moving the F2 pawn to F4 and challenge the queen. It is supported. Yes you open up your castle but you do that anyway a few moves from here.

  25. She looks great as a blonde, and I wish that whoever is in charge of her appearance should get the other half of hair bleached.

  26. The educational takeaway from this video is that you never know when an opponent like her is going to sucker you by playing at a much lower rating than they deserve.

  27. Thanks for this one! I really appreciated the simple focus on “(un)protected positions”, it was great to just have one idea to think about while studying the game.

  28. The queen is the best and strongest piece so even if it's defended they can take it

  29. Thanks Anna. Maybe I'll win a game of chess one day😀

  30. I've had a game recently where I totally dominated my opponent, was up a major piece and checkmated him or her, then the computer said I had 5 blunders. I don't even know what a blunder really is. Yes, just giving a knight away for nothing is an example I'm aware of, but I did nothing like that in the win I'm talking about.

  31. I lose at chess because I just dote on Anna Cramling instead of practicing.

  32. Really helpful video Anna! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
