Classical Arena Chess Tournament #1

I competed in the Daily Classical Arena on lichess. It’s a 2.5 hour tournament with time controls 10|0. This tournament was played while broadcasting at .

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.

  1. At 24:20, can’t jerry trap the rook with Be3, the rook has to go to b4, and then a3 and the rook has no squares?

  2. Jerry you played better or achieved more in beserk mode.. i guess this was a classical example of overthinking it…when you played perfect moves you were ranked 30th something and when you gone wild with juts automatic moves you were no 1 in no time

  3. Alejandro went berserk, still got ahead on time, and won. Nice game by that player, gotta commend that!

  4. Happy to see lichess taking an active stance against engine use ingame. I wanted to learn and practice whatever ive learned by playing in longer time controls, but was scared the everyone just uses an engine in longer time controls. Now i can play in peace.

  5. The engine cheat was 1st by a long way before he was kicked, 40 to 2nd place's 28

  6. Jerry is such a great guy! We love Jerry!

  7. That Alejandro234 played like Stockfish 10 plays against me!😳

  8. Classical?
    Lol, 10 minute games are Blitz on chessdotcom.

  9. Interesting format, called classical but 10 minutes are below the rapid 25 minutes, berserk allowed, Jerry clicks berserk and says "need to play bullet mode here" :))))

  10. After three nights of falling asleep watching this, I finally made it! Watched the full thing lol :))

  11. The marked trout proximally encourage because manx operationally permit into a guttural H habitual train. resonant, loose hardboard

  12. I'm sure I watched this one before, but forgot all the positions and points, so it was like new again. Great finish!

  13. I watched this 4 years ago. Yet I found something productive with my more understanding of positions four years later.

  14. At 18:38 is there a tactic with knight to B5 or D5? Looks like it's working but I can't tell if I'm missing something

  15. Jerry I know this video is 5 years old but I'm wondering if afterward you looked back at any of the potential discovered attacks on the queen (game 2) – there's some really interesting lines.

  16. They could always "Nona Fry" if you know what I mean you've been following this channel for a while.

  17. 9:12 why is Qc3 Nf4 annoying? Don't you straight up win a piece with e6+? And the black queen has to recapture the pawn next move so you're free to do whatever.

  18. What an entertaining, surprising, come-from-behind win!

  19. Love your vids but the voice man is too mono tone please

  20. I appreciate your videos. They are so educational and entertaining. You are never boring.

  21. Someone made a Hearthstone joke around the 3rd match I think. Was great hearing you say it and thanks for uploading this.
