  1. The lord commandeth another upload, and it was done. Thou shall always keep the bishop pair, and it was so. Bartholomew:7

  2. In the minute 4:46 the white king was in check, how it can be?

  3. Was just about to watch a movie on netflix in order to fall asleep when a notification popped up saying that John uploaded a video. Guess I can stay awake a little while longer ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. No one playing 1.g3 nor 1….b6 deserves to win and…I mean, if I were at your level i could gracefully lose to anyone

  5. I'm used to Kings indian and Pirc pawn structures, but your White play gives me a headache :S — How about that Bird opening? ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Do more video like this. I'm enjoying it..nice one

  7. High level Chess have these annoying childish losers too? Lol

  9. Jovencitos33 is a grandmaster rated 2657 FIDE (or so he says on his chess.com profile).

  10. I've been missing these bullet videos John. You made us wait for quite a while. Keep up the good work man. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. ๐Ÿ™ thank you always for the upload ๐Ÿ™

  12. Do people like jovencitos actually have fun playing solely to flag? Seems like a sad way to spend your time.

  14. Jovencitos, you are ideal candidate for anger management

  15. I really enjoyed this video John, keep up the great work and even better chess.

  16. Not until this video have I seen how subtly John roasts people like the rage-quitter. His tone of voice really threw me off.

  17. Man, I wish I had John's gift for laughing off defeats! Too often I get angry…

  18. Jovencitos33 being really annoying (lets time run out, offers 30-sec.-game frequently, disconnects), but I think we are pleased with how it ended. Thanks John Bartholomew! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Jovencitos33 deserves being get reported. Shame!

  20. Bullet sucks, stick with standard, your audience learns more.
