Please keep videos of this kind coming. Extremely helpful. Truly developes one's chess mind into areas never thought of or imagind! Like seeing more of the iceberg of chess below the water line instead of just the ice above the water line. Thanks again, FM Lilov
Another amazing video, with so many hepful points. I really like the fact that you express the definition of different chess terms recognizing alot of us wouldnt understand but also knowing there meaning says so much in a simple phrase. Loved the suggestion of using our imagination, very poful and certainly will allow for less stale games. Ive noticed its alot more fun to play this way and rather lose trying than going along like a robot especially since Ive got nothing to lose anyway and it will help me greatly down the road to be a much better player! Onnly regret I have like many others is not learning this game sooner! This video is of great aid also in breaking out of the many closed positions Ive encountered even at the sacrifice of a pawn or two!
Thanks again for sharing with others especially us newer ones in the community!!!!!!!!!!!!
You make it sound easy even when it requires a deeper understanding of the positions. I learned a great deal. Thank you.
another great lecture by the master
amazing improvement of position by a few simple moves
Bishops being stronger than queens in a certain position and knights better than rooks is a very interesting concept that I have never really heard before. Very interesting.
Very clear, and at the same time very subtle ! Thanks !
thanks for the hint
Thank you. I enjoy your vids. Please keep them coming!
Thanks Valeri, great lecture, one of your best.

Another video, another crucial skill. Through two examples of GM Yusupov's play, FM Lilov shows us the power of activating our pieces, how to do so, and how to recognize when to do so.

Valeri feels fortunate to have learned to play chess from his father when he was only three, immediately becoming seriously engaged. By the age of seven he was able to play blindfold chess in several games at the same time. At the age of eight, he achieved a record-breaking ELO of 1985, and subsequently became the European Individual School Chess Champion U10 in Moscow, Russia. He has won over 30 medals in national and international competitions, and in 2008 achieved his highest rating of 2443 and the title of FIDE master, as well as two IM norms.
