YouTube Tryouts!


hello my name is faramarz   i love yours



Yes, there are a lot of great vids on here, Im glad put this out there. Its got to be really hard to talk about what you're thinking while trying to play. Kind of like drinking and smoking at the same time maybe?


I've been travelling from tournament to tournament for over a month and only now I'm back home. Am I too late for this contest? I wouldn't like to "waste" time if the deadline has passed :)


They haven't set any deadline and people have just been submitting more and more videos.


I vote for NM aww rats


My computer is back! So of course, a Queen Sac was calling my name! Let me know what you think guys. 

Just like this game, I'm not giving up on this competition! Hahah. 


My latest, solving tactics on


Aww-Rats should do the job... He is very instructive and has taught several people individually. He has already made over 300 instructive videos.


I just recorded my games and uploaded them; no comments, no effects, no cutting etc. I'd be glad to hear some feedback


I post videos from my twitch channel. I'm going to try and post more videos. I explain my thought processes, and interact with my twitch audience. All feedback appreciated!


I like samuelmbrad's videos. That last game was really interesting and he presented it hilariously and educationally.

I vote for him! 


TheRookfellas - New Year Special (part 1) - "Give A Class"


i support the rookfellas


I also support the rookfellas, want more videos!


I want to know when the staff picks a winner.


What kind of commentary is looking for? I've wanted to make youtube videos doing chess commentary for a while now but I'm not sure if NM and higher level commentary is what the community as a whole would be looking for. I can explain my move choices and ideas a lot more indepth for a bit lower rated viewer to understand if that's what the community would prefer. Or I can explain my game as I would to my 2200+ colleagues if that's prefered

Also, just found out how to record my screen and voice for free ;)




NM MattyDPerrine, this is just me going out on a limb, but I think most players are rated between 1000 and 1600 here, so If you can dumb down your explanations for players of that level, then perhaps that would work, but that's just a guess on my part.


It's kind of odd that hasn't defined this contest very well, either in terms of a deadline or selection procedure (at least as far as I can tell). The truth is that all of these videos and producers have merit and they all deserve a (raised) platform. Given the talent between TVedas, Squarology, Awratts, Zibbit and others, it's a matter of taste as they are all good. Personally, I like Zibbit- he's no nonsense and sharp but I would hate to see these other guys be ignored as well. I guess I'm saying that I'd prefer multiple winners rather than just one.
