King of the Hill Speed Chess Tournament [158]

This is a King of the Hill speed (bullet) chess tournament (Marshall Arena) I competed in on lichess while livestreaming on . The King of the Hill chess variant is just like regular chess, however with the added rule if your king moves to 1 of the 4 central squares, you win immediately. Time controls are 1 minute per player.



  1. The more I watch your chess videos, the better at chess I get. The more I watch your chess variant videos, the worse I get. I'm still watching them though, they're too much fun!

  2. Hi, could you explain the point of bishop F4 instead of H5 where it pins their pawn to the queen?

  3. in move 15 u could have taken the pawn on f7 and make a fork

  4. on 1:21 if u pause, u can win a queen, this is forced: Nb5, xb5 Rxd4 Ke5 or e3 then Qxc2 😀 i saw this quick while scrooling true the video

  5. I've watched like 5 of your tournament videos and this was the first one where I saw you lose a game …… you monster

  6. The only reason i like watching you lose from time to time is that you sound just like Owen Wilson!

  7. king of the hill is ok but three check is
    more my kind of thing

  8. 20:45 and through the end of that game was really cool to watch as you saw so many moves ahead and recognized the opposing bishops. That was pleasant to watch unfold.

  9. The move at 6:04 was actually really good, either way he was loosing his queen or putting his King in a worsened position, if he went Kf3 then e4, then if Kf4, Bd6 then King either f4 or h5, either way move bishop back to c8 then queen has to defend on d7, after Bxd7 it's checkmate. So it was a winning move

  10. For god sake, I really can´t believe I spend 4 hours straight watching you play!
    You're just awesome!

  11. how does he play so good so fast? unbelievable to me

  12. i am so so tired of his giggling, i love his chess but………..

  13. Exemplary case of someone who can take defeat. you have a wonderful attitude towards competition

  14. Jerry you're one of the few people who would see original chess objectives in a minigame and win that way i.e. mate

  15. at 56 seconds you could have checked the King again with your night moving him to the pawn square and you would have had his Queen

  16. God damn, i think the most valuable about your winning streaks is how you handle losing…

  17. "what a cool move. I love that move!" Jerry, you're the best
