About 2 weeks ago I decided to start my own Youtube chess channel. I did that for a couple of reasons: 

  1. Posting content frequently helps me in being more consistent with my chess  training. 
  2. I was hoping that, via Youtube comments, I could get critical feedback and tips from the other players, and improve my skills in that way.
  3. I've read many people on the website asking for such a thing! 

I now have about 10 videos, and I'm trying to upload every day, or at least every other day. Here's the link: 

The response to my content has been very low and discouraging: no comments, just thumbs down. So here am I, telling you that if you wish, you can see a noob(700 ELO) play chess and yes, maybe get angry, but most of all: you can help me improve. After all this is a community, and sharing my failures via social networks like Youtube is not only in order to provide entertainment, but also to make friends, get connected and share ideas, not just judgments. 

So, what do I do over there on my youtube channel? Many things. Mostly I play blitz chess: during the games I try to talk as much as possible so that anyone who wishes to help me can understand what's going on in my mind. But I also try to solve chess puzzles, and in the future I hope to be able to make analyses of my own games (I'd need the help of somebody for that!) and reviews of chess books, articles and chess stuff in general. Also: I'm Italian, so please try to cope with my grammar and my pronunciation. Here you can see a screenshot of me after a game (the window next to "live" shows the taken pieces, but ony during the game itself).

Here's the link to my channel again:

If you like what you see, please consider commenting and subscribing! You'll help me become a better chess player.
