Whatever happens it would be nice to hear from the Chess.com people pretty soon. My refresh button can't take it anymore after close to 3 weeks now ;-)
To address some points in what awww-rats said in his last post, I can and will and HAVE been playing plenty of lower rated players who have wanted games. The last few weeks I've spent a lot of time in the LIVE chess and played number of games against so many novice players challenging me.
Really now squarology. Who can't play blitz, listen to music, read the dictionary, deal with the electric company, check emails, AND juggle 4 flaming torches at the same time? Come on now, you can do it....
Hello. Sorry for the late entries, but I'm very new to video making and only recently have gotten any sort of hang of this. Anyhow, I've a few videos up now and would appreciate feedback - I realize I'm not a titled player but I don't think the contest shouldn't completely ignore untitled entries, especially as the vast majority of the membership here (or anywhere else) is well below such a level. Anyhow, here goes:
I'll probably try and make more videos like this if there's any interest, (which, to be honest, I tend to doubt, given the one person a day viewership).
I've also tried to make bullet chess videos, and have found that it's difficult to talk during them. Therefore in my latest episode, I've taken to singing instead:
Again, I realize that without a title I'm at a massive disadvantage over pretty much every other contestant, but would appreciate feedback nonetheless.
I'm now a student of squareology...
Okay, so it's obvious.
Sorry, everyone else. You guys are also good, but only he can juggle commentary, the dictionary, chess, students, and dragonball.
Oh, and I remember the electric company. Real good timing!
OK, though late to the game, I'm starting to generate some videos now. Again, without a title I'm at what seems a more or less insurmountable disadvantage, but I still feel that the video perspective of the other 99.9% of the site should count for something.
Thus, in that underdog spirit, here are three more videos I hope someone somewhere finds of some interest. The first features me managing to win against a somewhat rude opponent, the second involves an introductory rant (that can be skipped by fast-forwarding to the game at 3:57), and the third is a good example of the attacking potential of opposite colored bishops.
I love IM squarology's videos!
hi, guys, thank you so much for your comments/votes. I really appreciate them :)
my latest video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyIb5JQv9bs
or embedded if you prefer:
I read chapter 1 of Hans Kmoch's Pawn Power today in the hopes of creating an educational video. Hope you guys like it.
Hey guys, I've got three new videos for you.
all embedded here so as to not cluster this thread :) Lemme know what you think!
squarology I hope you make many more vids, you manage to be funny and informative all in one, a tough combo, keep it up man :)
vote for zibbit video he is good and give me advice also
My latest, two 5-minute games vs IM Marc Esserman. I've recorded more so more coming....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIIHfZBd3fU
I'm voting for NM aww-rats and IM squarology
thank you, Pedone and CheesyKid :)
Wow, nice games from the Mighty Viking. Anyway chess.com are smart doodz, they tricked all you titled players into making free stuff for the peasants. Hope they keep this "contest" going forever. Like when Tom Sawyer got the neighbor kids to paint his fence, or that time I had swimsuit calendar tryouts in my driveway.
Here is a new portion of online Blitz games with instructive commentary. Keep in mind that I play only against strong opponents (IMs and GMs), so it's a bit of challenge to comment and play a strong master at the same time. I hope you enjoy it nevertheless! :) http://youtu.be/x5fGWYbb1XM
I have enjoyed aww rats videos quite a bit. Thank you.
Well! It would seem technology exists to spite me. My hard drive was corrupted a couple days ago! As soon as its fixed more videos will be on the way. In the meantime, join the discussion in the comments section of an older video!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PZViu0eAHM
A simul I played tonight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klmqYepvR_o tell me if you like this format and what could be improved in it. Think this is something that I would definately do a lot of or something similar if i got the "gig"
