BUt will they listen? This is the way they make money for goodness sakes!

Yes, you can't blame them for trying to make a living, but there is actually good content on YouTube. Also a lot of crap, so be careful.

It's interesting that the moderators will delete mention of the L word. But allow use of the word YouTube. Both are competitors. Both have to make money. Both have chess videos and comments about chess and chess videos. Yet one can be mentioned, while the other cant. 



youtube saint louis chess has plenty of free content


Hello Fellow Chess Players:

I will be brief. I have played chess since 1963. I learned on the streets of Rochdale Village  from old Jewish men who were trying to help out an 8 year half jewish/half black kid find his way. Anywaz, when I got to high school I was lucky enough to get on the Jamaica High School Chess Team and that's when my formal education began. Danny taught me formal openings, (like the Roy Lopez), descriptive notation, (now almost obsolete), Chess Theory & Practise; as well as physically taking me to the House of games on West 72nd street in NYC and ocassionally to the Manhattan Chess Club! It was grand! Danny introduced me to tournament play and strategy. Unfortunatley, I had to move away to Westchester County and deal with family problems. However. the game, culture, strategy, art and love for chess has served me well in life and is most always enjoyavle - even when I loose. Sometimes, especially when I loose. this isbc one often learns more from games they loose, than the games they win!

That is the Primary reason I Hate Cheaters. Cheating used to be impossible in chess. But with technology - anything is possible. I have learned from negative experience that some IT savy chess players use this trick to win a game: they simply disconnect their computer line from the session while playing you, but instead of the operating system registering that your opponent disconnected and should be assigned the game loss; the system pegs you as the person that disconnected and assigns a loss to you.

Danny Kopec would have hated the evolution of chess into a form a competition where people coud cheat. Cheating does many negative things to a person over time, esp., ifthey value the activity. As I start a Masters Program in Data Security in January I will seek to help chess become cheater free partime as a hobby. then hopefully people such as: 

"You have lost your connection and your game with (MarkoM1997 will auto-resign in 0:00)", will noit cheatme out of a few meaningless unofficial non UCSF, (United States Chess Federatiion), rating points.
Enjoy the game people. Lying to yourself about winning a game will erase that lesson of strategy or tactics from your memory and you will ahve waated your own time.
To the Learners,
Peace, Andrei.

Fischer random chess, also known as Chess960, is a variation of the game of chess invented by former world chess champion Bobby Fischer.[1] Fischer announced this new game variation on June 19, 1996, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.[2][3][4] Fischer random chess employs the same board and pieces as standard chess, but the starting position of the pieces on the players' home ranks is randomized, following certain rules. The random setup makes gaining an advantage through the memorization of openings impracticable; players instead must rely more on their spontaneous talent and creativity over the board.

Randomizing the main pieces had long been known as shuffle chess; however, Fischer random chess introduces new rules regarding the initial random setup, "preserving the dynamic nature of the game by retaining bishops of opposite colours for each player and the right to castle for both sides".[5] The result is 960 unique possible starting positions.

In 2008, FIDE added Chess960 to an appendix of the Laws of Chess.[8] The first world championship officially sanctioned by FIDE, the FIDE World Fischer Random Chess Championship 2019, was held in 2019, bringing more prominence to the variant.[9]
