  7. bhaiya thoda hindi me bhi video ki samgh aaye

  8. I know you think it's noob question but i have a doubt : I want to take opponent pawn with my pawn so now which pawn will touch first to take opponent pawn ( it's our pawn or opponent pawn)

  9. I like this moves. My name is Neeraj. Rameshmani is my father name. Mail is coming as Rameshmani. Thank you 😊

  10. i was a queen's gambit player and i switched to the london and now i am losing so many games should i look for another opening or just keep my london and learn more abt it

  11. If black castli to queen side in London opening then…??

  12. chess puzzle – 1 Qxe7+ , Qxe7 -2 Rxg8+ , Ke7 -3 Rxb8

  13. I was playing London and black didn't castle😅

  14. Thanks Jitendra sir, your voice is clear and quite impressive, and I love the way you teach.

  15. Sir subtitles is disturbing in the middle

  16. Puzzle: I have a different answer than others. I say we go d5 and attack the queen. If he moves his queen to f5 or takes on d5 queen d2 is a mate. If he plays any thing else, he loses his queen.

  17. Wow..
    This has worked wonderfully during middle game..👍

  18. No chess player really want to wach this video because every chess player admit himself as a smart not lazy😁

  19. Looks like its trash and boring to do but it is a demon when u play alomg with THIS system

  20. can you make a video on how to not get confused of Italian opening beacouse i will all ways get confused of it and nice video

  21. 1











  22. Whatever you said your words appears on the board so we are unable see the board clearly so remove the words from board we are unable to see the prices clearly

  23. What if the black moves c6 that will directly caputres center pawn

  24. Do you run on a chess board???? what is a lazy chess player???😡

  25. Rxe7+, Qxe7, Rxg8+, Kd7, Qxe7+, Kxe7, Rxb8 white is winning

  26. Rxe7…black will be left with just pawns and white will still have a rook left.
