Best Youtube Channel to Follow?

  • #1

    Hi, I would like to know what the best Chess Youtube Channels are to follow? I know thechesswebsite has a good one, but I really enjoyed the first 3 videos of John Bartholomew's videos on Chess Fundamentals. He is an IM and plays live games as well as examines games of his students of a much lower rating. He focuses on typical mistakes player's make, piece coordination, etc. Is there anyone else who might have videos like his, where he plays games and analyzes/focuses on them in the style that he does? I find it very helpful. Please share your favorite Chess Youtube Channels to watch.

    Chessexplained is very instructive, hearing how a strong player thinks his way through a game. Tons of content there as well.

    Kingscrusher and Chessnetwork are my favorites.

    Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis is fantastic, but ONLY the lectures that are given by titled players  i.e. Seirawan, Shahade, Akobian, Finegold, etc

    as flathead68 said, Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis is fantastic.

    John's channel is instructive, as well as fun!

    He has videos that are incredibly instructive, such as his endgame videos he just posted, or when he played lower rated players. 


    He also has very fun videos, such as bullet tournaments.

    My favorite is Daniel King's channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/PowerPlayChess

    Just make sure you don't take any tips from the Backyard Professor. Avoid his advice and you'll be fine

    IM Andrew Martin is a good one I like.

    I like MatoJelic and KingsCrusher quite a bit. I also watch some of DerequeKelly's videos from time to time.

    GJChess has great videos on opening traps and tactics.  Many lines are worth knowing in themselves, but it also really familiarizes you with the most common devastating sacrifices in the openings, especially the open games (1. e4 e5).

    Thanks for all the insight!

    Have a look at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis youtube channel.

    Select the lecturer, the topic and the level of play. :)

    What are you talking about?  I found his videos very intructive.  He relays his tips from Jeremy Silman's books.  It does not matter what his rating...
