He seems to be a witty, likable guy. But I am not a huge fan of his channel and his way to present chess. It is a great business decision though, so I understand the incentive. It's bit heartbreaking though that more "serious" channels with better content than his are doing so much worse...

"his ability to make chess accessible and entertaining for all levels"

I wonder if that was written by Rozman himself. Probably.

"Accessible to everyone" means that his target audience is 10 year olds who can barely play chess.

I don’t think he’s very good at teaching. Sure he’s engaging but once I watched a Scandinavian defense video from him and then ran his suggestions through the engine and they were not very good. He seems pro and and opinionated. I stay away from his channel.

The scandinavian is dubious in general, but him and the poor recommendations he has are only playable because often the refutation is very difficult to see and your average 1500 is not going to find it

I've met a few new OTB players at a local club. They like to ask questions like what's your rating, what openings do you play, and what youtube channels do you like.

I don't know what to say since I don't watch chess youtube, so just as a guess I'll mention Levy. All (3) of them have said they don't like Levy.

They're young adults so they're probably older than his target audience, and they're interested in learning about chess. They usually mention one of the instructional IMs or GMs like Narodistsky.

Just tell them the truth.

I would like him if he was more like Naroditsky and less like himself.

Oh, you mean tell them I don't watch youtube. I do tell them that. But they're trying to chat about this or that youtuber, and I don't really know anyone, so I try to mention someone a beginner could relate to, and that's why I mention levy. To my surprise none of them liked him.

Very controversial subject. Personally, I enjoy watching his videos a lot. They make fun of chess in a good way that's really enjoyable. A lot of people don't like him because of this, they prefer instructive channels that teach you chess. I personally think that they can't dislike someone because he doesn't cover as much a particular aspect of chess, the "learning" aspect in his YouTube videos.

Thanks.

Yes, he has probably exposed more people to Chess than anyone.

He deserves so much credit for that.

Perhaps some don't like his "style of delivery", which is fine, as everyone has their own tastes.

Or perhaps people outgrow the majority of his content, which is also fine, and probably should happen as he admits his content is more geared to beginners and entertainment.
