You have your '60 Second' system with the White pieces, but what about a 60-Second system opening vs. 1.e4?

I've gone with the Scandinavian Defence, and in the video below, you'll learn the basic moves to get started with this opening in your games! 

Comment below with what you think of the new thumbnail, so that I can make better thumbnails in the future that grow our tight-knit community

Before I head off and enjoy a delicious Vietnamese breakfast, here's the update on the new content schedule for the channel:

Obviously, since I'm releasing two videos a day, and can only post these blogs once every 48 hours, I won't be sharing all the video links in these blogs - consider this a taster, with the full buffet being on my channel  

I know I'm starting small, but I'm really inspired by the stories of other Youtubers, who just 1 year ago also had a relatively small following, but who now have over 500,000 subscribers.

I'm in this game for the long haul - because I love making these videos for you guys, and seeing you improve your chess - giving everyone the opportunity to learn from a Grandmaster!

I shared a lot of fresh news here, but I have one final pleasant surprise for you guys!

I've just created a new playlist called 'Chess Opening Lessons' - check it out here to start playing your openings like a Grandmaster! 

Comment below - what did you love most about this blog post?

Is there anything you'd like to see me talk about in future videos/posts?

See you in the next video!
