“Holy Smokes!” | Eastern SuperBlitz Arena Chess Tournament #35

This is a 90-minute tournament I competed in on lichess.org. This SuperBlitz Arena chess tournament was recorded locally on September 28th, 2021 at 1:00 AM EDT. Time controls are set at 3 minutes per player.

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. Does anyone know what Jerry does for a living? He barely ever uploads.

  2. why don't u often regulalry post videos on youtube , u are such a good chess streamer

  3. You sound like the Bob Ross of chess in this one Jerry! I mean that as a compliment 🙂

  4. In the third game, not sure why you didn't move your knight, for example taking on c6 with the knight, with a discovered attack on their knight. If they take on c6 with the quee, you take on f6 with the bishop attacking the rook, g7 being pinned. if they take your queen, well you take back with the h pawn as you mentioned.. before playing h3. you win at least a pawn i think,

  5. That game at 1:06:32 was amazing! Waaay down on the clock and clearly loosing endgame. Still you beat him with better endgame play. It was great to watch.

  6. Jerry Im a longtime fan and I feel like you getting more checkmates in your games could really take you to the next level

  7. Jerry hope you will also cover this world cup. Really appreciated your Carlsen-Caruana world cup games.

  8. Yo, Jerry
    Suggestion: look up LeelaFish games maybe?

    They united leela's insight with blunder protection of standard engine to create monster couple hundred points stronger than either one on their own

  9. The Holy Smokes game was quite the butt clencher.

  10. I wouldn't describe myself as holy. I'm just a believer and well read. And I occasionally smoke.

  11. Watching you play and explain is very helpful. Thanks

  12. HANCHIK_1 is terrifying.

    E: Never mind he's a pussycat compared to vadimnedoka11 How the HELL did you beat him? He played like he had that opening memorised to 100 moves. Study your endgames kids.
