  1. "What are you stupid? Did you not watch the Gotham Chess video?"

    he cracks me up.

  2. Respect for this man, literally u can make money from this but give lesson free

  3. I dont know how many will see this but if you are defending against a rook pawn with just your king, if your king can get to the c7, f7, c2, or f2 squares depending on your side and pawn, it is a draw because the other king will have to be in the corner or on the side of the board itself and you can stalemate your opponent by force.

    Eventually your opponent will play that last pawn move to a2, a7, h2, or h7 with their king in the corner and you play the king move that pins the other player and stalemate them. Very useful knowledge that you may not have to make it into the corner yourself if your opponents king is there itself.

  4. Your lessons are always great, but this one I will save. All too often I have drawn when I can win. I think king pawn endgame was a weakness in my strategy. Thanks. I will study this.

  5. A game where you've lost all your promoted pieces for all their pawns.

  6. thank you so much Gotham, this is very helpful,

    God bless you

  7. You sound like a Cool Dude, and it comes thru in ur videos.
    I hope ur making some coin from your Gambit book. Great instruction bro!

  8. I know I’ve watched this already but fuck man, when I study endgames I feel so much better when I play. I know these videos don’t do well and it’s a business but I’d love more endgame videos

  9. 4:58
    hey hey hey loooooool
    i will never forget what he is trying to teach me

  10. I play chess for over 20 years now and I´ve learnt something new. The powerful tutu position.

  11. true, not gonna lie, this channel will blow up with these endgame series.

  12. i want you to play with oiur worl's champion Magnus Carlson

  13. Can't believe you shouted out Uncle Chael, was not expecting that🤣🤣

  14. Rekt noob stands no chance in king and pawn endgames against me now

  15. Shout out to Chael Sonnen I can’t let you get close lmaoooo 😂😂😂. That joke in a chess channel definitely deserves recognition 😂😂😂. MMA and chess are my two biggest topics of interest. Shout out to you!

  16. can you please do an endgame tutorial on queen vs bishop endgame

  17. Shout out to Chael Sonnen, the undisputed, the undefeated champion of all weight classes.

  18. My first chess videos watched on YT were Ben Finegold. He's such an arrogant schmuck and not a good teacher. You are the opposite, man – or should I say, the opposition.

  19. This is so beautifully simple. Chess is soo awesome 😍

  20. So pretend the king has a forcefield around it everything makes sense now

  21. chess noobs love gotham for a reason bro. he break down everything slow and methodically with depth to help you no matter where you are. W mans

  22. Levy, you are an absolute G. The adult chess noobs (of which I am one) need this more than anything

  23. as someone I can't remember once said, "Study your endgames kids, its the key to the universe"

  24. Enjoy all of your videos – great passion and fun comes through.

    For the teaching ones, what I really like is how you show the 'why' of "what not to do" so clearly.

    Many people say "do this, trust me", but that's not teaching.

    All of this was perfect – K and pawn basics – opposition, shouldering, the square.

  25. that shout out to CHAEL SONEN😁

  26. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  27. Every few months I come back to this because I forget all the rules

  28. So Good,

    I laughed the entire time!

    Great Lesson

    Big fan 🙂

    Flash

  29. You and I are very alike. I'd've been down on la playa with my Physics text!

  30. I trust at 18:30 instead of cut the pawn, you have to move f6…which will seal the opposition
