  1. i have heard from a very convincing devil that winning hells-turnment might give you two norms at once. just saying 😉

  2. Go Levy!! I'm looking forward to watching your recaps. Love all your contents and appreciate your efforts

  3. I was supposed to play in this tournament. was forced to cancel 🙁

  4. at the end of the tournament if you aren't doing well you should just force yourself to blitz out moves in non critical positions like a young hikaru and see how that works out for you. I know in the last tournament you played against a guy who played like that and he had a similar score at the end to you if i'm not mistake. Just see if all this thinking early is really serving you best.

  5. Title choosing is strategic play. If you're subscribed, you will get the videos anyway. But if you're not, depending on the title you have a greater chance to get the video recommended to you by the algorithm. Levy, you do what you have to do. Most of us will be watching the videos no matter what the title is.

  6. In fact levy you’re just the best YouTuber I know and the one I appreciate the most just don’t care about the titles there are perfect and good luck for your continuation on the road to grandmaster title

  7. A suggestion on video titles: Consider doing both? For example: "What am I doing?! – Charlotte Tournament Round 3" this way you get attention from both groups – those who know you're currently at a tournament and those who only check in every so often. It also makes it easier to go back and watch in order if viewers miss a video (YouTube sucks at notifications) and the algorithm also tends to suggest them in the correct order when the titles are formatted numerically.

  8. Thx for bringing us on your journey. I watch the recaps and try to guess how the game went by your attitude b4 the game. Fun stuff good luck!!!!

  9. I must say I have forgotten, does Levy have a GM norm? Or is he on his way to try earn his first?

  10. F sleep you're from the city that never sleeps. Don't go for excessive complication. Play solid. Strike when the time is right.

  11. Hi. Suggestion for video titles….keep "clickbait" titles but try and have tournament and round in the caption.

  12. I was actually gonna go but i decided not to because i didnt want to get destroyed by the people around 1400

  13. "If I'm taking them out of there comfort zone, I'm not taking them anywhere I am comfortable with". Life lesson right there. Thanks Levy!

  14. cant you do titles like : "What am i doing!!! ( charlote round 1 dd/mm/yy)" for example , will definitely appreciate the clarification of what the videos are about.

  15. People complaining about the video titles… time to get a new hobby!

  16. Levy : Going for his Tournament
    Me :

  17. Regardin sleep… Bin off coffee for a few weeks and see how you feel… Maybe after the tournament because there's definitely an adjustment period.

    If you like the taste there's alot of awesome decaf stuff on the market to get stuff into.

    When I did it I slept a lot better and it cleared a lot of mind fog… Also I think I put on about 100 ELO points… From 1200-1300.

    So, yeah. If that helps at all.

    Much love x

  18. All the best levy I wish you get your GM norm. All the best

  19. I fucking hate it when he gets "funny" with the titles. Just name the fucking episode "guess the Elo" so I know to click on it, instead of "30% off discount in this video".

  20. Most of the time when you're being too slow it's because you're endlessly second-guessing yourself far too much. That's a big thing to work on.

  21. It sucks that guys like Carlsen and Nakamura aren't humble enough to play the top engines….and maybe find out a few things in the process! How about you do the honors?!

  22. Can’t find any results for this tournament. Any links??

  23. Changing the titles after the fact is super appreciated, Levi is definitely best girl

  24. I cant wait for Levy to tell us what dawned on him

  25. Levy! Prioritize getting good sleep! If you don't sleep much this is the easiest way to improve your performance. If you need sleeping pills and you're scared of Ambien, try Trazodone. (Statements about drugs are not medical advice, they're performance art I swear, don't hurt me youtube)

  26. Bro, don't worry about the people whining about the titles. Most of us already know it's a part of the hustle.

  27. it's not true that they do the pairings immediately after everyone finished in europe😅

  28. You could stick with the dramatic titles and "click baits" but put the video category in the thumbnail, like a "recap" or "guess the elo" tag

  29. When levy plays 2 more tournaments, this video title doesn't make sense

  30. Warm greetings from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Discovered your channel after watching "The Queen's Gambit". What a joy your videos are! Wish you luck in your future endeavours
