    I have a question, at min 5:00 that h5 was just a random move right? because the pawn is hanging there, only protected by the rook but being attacked by the knight and the queen

    2:10 , at what level are you supposed to calculate these moves, a this depth? To me, it seems like something I would never EVER see in a million years and basically categorized as a "computer move". I understand that it is not in fact a computer move, it's just to make my question clearer

    18:54 would it be better to retreat bishop to c5? it blocks the rook from taking the queen immediately. If ludwig blunders and take the bishop with the pawn you can take the white queen with the rook, and if ludwig takes the bishop with the rook take the rook with the queen and when pawn takes the queen take white's queen with the rook.

    Very surprised Charlie didn't see that he could have played bishop to c5 and would have saved his queen at the cost of the bishop. and Rxc5 would lead to Qxc5, dxc5 and then Rxd1 winning the queen back and being down only one bishop.

    This is indeed like Dan Heisman says 1100s play. They notice problems but give complex solutions when more direct solutions exist... Notice how Ludwig uses complex approaches for simple problems....you're definitely 1100 according to Dan Heisman's categorizations. And no. You don't improve the fastest playing people at your level. You can improve SO MUCH QUICKER playing 2200s who will punish all your mistakes. 1100s don't punish the mistakes you make. You wanna improve? Play someone who can punish your mistakes (Ben Finegold). Sorry but PogChamps is.... Well... PogChamps.... Thanks for the Thumbnail

    And finally, I LOVE that Levy gives the same amount of effort, time, and care to these recaps (and the original broadcasts) as games by super GMs. At the end of the day, it's still a game with 32 pieces on the 64 squares, and I just appreciate Levy and his style. If nothing else good came from 2020, then Levy's rise offsets many negatives from last year!

  41. John Gleich

    John GleichПре 11 дана

    Ya know, there has been a lot of stuff said about the popularization of beginner/intermediate players (with large audiences) as being.... bad (or whatever) for chess, because it's taking the focus off of the greats. But I have to say, watching where these guys have come is really remarkable. They seem to me to be playing a lot higher than their ratings and I think their trajectory is even higher.

    What a match! Congrats to ludwig and F to Charlie for having to end the match with Armageddon. At least it wont be the tiebreaker after this event. ludwig was so lucky. Some reckless moves from in both games but won the match in the end. Charlie could have easily won the 2nd game if he accepted the Botez gambit. And the Armageddon is not indicative of who should have won. I am a big fan you ludwig, but I expect a lot better from you. Sorry, not sorry. Since they seem to think they can meet in the finals (wishful thinking but I like it), they both really need to review the 1st game for a lot more than 2 minutes. There were so many blunder traps and unstoppable attacks for both Charlie and ludwig. So I found 6 key positions based on Levy's analysis and completed each position into a "gg" with perfect thanks to the engine. Its not aim to be realistic but more so to understand why those position were so good. Link: www.chess.com/a/KWvqXW8WnWWi 3:08 - 1 - Why Charlie's castle was so bad and how ludwig should have punished him for it 3:31 - 2 - How Charlie could have won after ludwig's bold knight sacrifice 6:25 - 3 - Why Qxf3 was winning for ludwig and essentially when he lost the game 7:17 - 4 - How Charlie could have won in 69 moves (nice) 8:08 - 5 - How ludwig could have drawn the game (2 times) 8:38 - 6 - How Charlie missed mate in 22 (The engine missed it to) I know they most likely wont check out my analysis, but if we learn more than them from a game they played, we all win.

    Not bad for 1100s. Y'know, I got into chess in my teens and never thought I'd see the day when the internet (i.e. Twitch and RSclub) would motivate strong players to connect with weaker players and Hollywood/internet stars. When I was a 1500 at an open tournament, there was no way a guy like Nakamura, Robson, or Akobian would say a word to me or show any interest in my games. Chess is in a good place right now, and I am glad that Nakamura is such a freer person and that all these IMs, GMs, and Super GMs are all so open and sociable.
