Nice summary and very informative!. It's not mentioned explicitly, but demonstrated implicitly, but one of the common mistakes players make when they first learn to make plans is being too ambitious with their plans, as in thinking that a plan has to be this grand overarching thing that unfolds over the duration of the whole game. Your plans can be smaller than that and you can have more than one in a game. Like your first plan could be to take control of a particular square as an outpost and secure a piece on it. Then, after accomplishing that, you can make a new plan based on using that well placed piece to support an attack on the king or to pressure another area of the board. Or if your opponent thwarts your first plan by covering the square you targeted with a pawn, you can re-evaluate and formulate a new plan to target the weaknesses created by that pawn move. And if the opponent counters that by forcing a trade of the weak pawn, you can then proceed with a third plan to infiltrate on the open file the pawn trade created. And so forth.
Another thing to remember is that plans must be specific. "I will move my pieces to the K-side to checkmate the K" is not a plan. You want to have specific squares where you want to put your pieces, or specific files or diagonals you want to open and control, or specific weaknesses you want to attack or put pressure on, in mind.
It's nice when each of your pieces that you want to use in your mating attack can move to an unattacked square. I'm seldom that lucky.
He was younger. Lol
Is he a noob there's a fork in the first move. find yourself if you can I AM NOT GONNA SHOW YOU!!!!
Thank you Daniel Radcliffe
Me being an absolute beginner, really loving your videos, youre probaly getting to be more known than Carlsen :p . I also find it very useful to play 30min games rather than 10min games. Having time to think the moves thru and not making big blunders like I do all the time in 10min games. Thanks for the great tips and videos!
I just love how humble he is
You have a wonderful gift to teach the most important things in a chess game. Thank you so much for taking the time to instruct us about these complex chess games. Much appreciated!
when the random chess master on YT is better than your school teachers
levys beard looks like there was a damn warzone there
You have a real ability to explain chess plans and ideas. Thanks very much for doing these useful chess videos. Much appreciated!
Keep up the good work Levy

I didn't know harry potter is a good chess player
Thank you so much for all these informations
The video on tactical and strategic plans is excellent and I and as a chess teacher I think it can greatly help the players get better thank you very much – mickey choma
Can't white just take the Ba3 because if the queen takes back white has Nd7+ loosing the rook?
Im learning this so I can beat Nelson
I was just looking this kind of video levy thank u so much mannnnn

Best teach on da tube
09:27 is that really not a joke?
2.50 why not C4
Omg how the quack can I understand this
I love this video,,make more videos of this nature please
What's your lichess name? Want to play?
If you look GJ chess repertoire for black instead of white you'll see a similar position it has helped me to get to almost 1500 now the c4 break is crazy.
9:37 when I saw this position my immediate first reaction was Ne2 followed by c4, looks like typical Kings Indian position but with white
bring this series back please
Hey Gotham, been following for years. I am sometimes struggling to come up with a plan and this video is highly underappreciated (seeing how you now make 500k to 2m+ views in a couple of a days
Ur discord link is expired now
As a beginner, I wish you would make some vids that explained moves and strategies more slowly, it's hard to follow this pace.
I create plans as if the opponent is gonna sacrifice all his pieces to me
Jesus Christ lived a sinless life died on the cross rose from the dead three days later so that you can have eternal life you just have to accept his gift of salvation and repent from your sins and surrender your life to him Jesus Christ for eternal life.
Man I’m struggling a lot to apply strategy and tactics to my game. I literally just play an opening and can only find room to be completely reactionary to whatever my opponent plays. My game is literally capitalising on opponent blunders which just sucks.
someone asked me to teach them chess so im reviewing your older videos. Dropping a comment as sacrifice to the youtube algo
I wish I was smart like Levy
Levy is an alright teacher; if you really wanna learn, watch Naroditsky or get 1 on 1 instruction.
Thanks Levy you is a good guy thanks thanks thanks 👍🏿
levy what is your favorite opening as black for all ratings
No the video was short
I cant understand….
But thank you for all the tips
10:15 Can someone please explain the significance of ba3 here? How was pressure applied to blacks center pawns in this instance?
