Playing A Real Bullet Chess Tournament (Chess)

This came from my stream on February 11th, 2021. Watch live next time:

I managed to get into a 2 minute bullet tournament this week on Chess.com. I must say, I didn’t play my best games but it was nice to put a toe into the competitive arena and get creative with what little time I had. Check it out!

  1. In the beginning I actually thought he blundered his queen….

  2. His name is Dutch for: ''startle'' Love the videos! <3

  3. There were some beautiful games in here!! Well played.

  4. 3:05 NL: Hangs queen
    Opponent: Doesn't take it
    Me: Pauses video, scratches head, thinks I'm going mad, missing the tactical reason why the queen can't be taken
    Me: Restarts video
    3:19 ….

  5. Sir Letourneau getting ready for the big stage. Will you take part in the Celebrity Meltdown Blitz Tournament next month?

  6. You should play Bc4 in the sicilian, especially at your ELO it would be very effective. There is literally nothing bad about it and Bobby Fischer made a career out of playing it.

  7. "Watch live next time" Aye aye NL, Sir ! Too bad your daily streams end at 1am on my side of the big blue pool huh :p

  8. Its funny how the endgame at 21:30 is completely drawn and he only won because his opponent misplayed at the end, yet he says he knows his endgames from childhood at 21:50 lol

  9. this is too painful. too many attacks that he just loses focus when he actually had the right idea

  10. the egg's gambit on the kingside. that was a beaut!

  11. “We love it, we love it, oh! We hate it, we’re saved!!!”

  12. Should I take another brake from the webdevelopment and refill my pog canteen with another NL chess video?
    Absolutelelelely

  13. Can someone please make a baka mitai video for NL?

  14. Actually insane that the man Dan got 12th in a tourney with 1200 players and NL got 22nd in a game with 500… Just goes to show that you can never judge a book by its cover. Still, excellent work from both of you!

  15. Hey man, just saying it's not right that you don't play Bc4 in the sicilian. You can definetly play it, but usually only after playing d4 and opening up the center. In some e6 before d6 Sicilians (Kan, for example), you mostly develop the B to d3. 🙂

  16. At 22:00 all his opponent had to do was remain in contact with the pawn it's only not a draw if you can walk the pawn, by shouldering the king. At gm level they'd accept a draw

  17. The bishop sacrifice for the exchange is brilliantly close to a position in a game if the opera tournament. I think a Carlsen’s one . Loved it

  18. Did I see right that NL did only defeat opponts with lower Elo than him?

  19. Since you've deleted all the posts from before two days ago, probably because all the criticism, I'll repost my comment:
    "intermediate chess genius" pffffft

  20. The rainy oven contrarily look because volleyball substantially possess inside a dead guide. protective, ritzy drill

  21. Hey bro I've gotten into the routine of watching your chess videos in bed and drifting off to them but now I've seen them all so I need you to start uploading them daily. Thanks boss xoxo yours truly

  22. Chess playing Chess games with my Chess mom (Chess)

  23. In the game vs theBlitz you missed a fork with your knight. King, rook and queen a 3 way. You moved the knight away from the fork. You did win the game. But the fork would have been so good. Especially a really early fork.

  24. WHYD YOU RESIGN THE FIRST GAME THAT BOTEZ GAMBIT HAD FLAWLESS EXCECUTION

  25. Is he allergic to being up the exchange or something

  26. Fell a bit behind with the chess content because I live in Texas and paying for weatherproofed energy grids was not in the agenda apparently, glad there is some to see now that I’m not a popsicle with no water or power.

  27. New favourite Chess channel after "I don't really want to trade queens, so let's do it".

  28. I don't know how i missed this when it came out but my god, that was some pogged content. Loving the chess videos!

  29. @3:15 How are we doing on time 52 vs 51 I would .. I resign. Too relatable lol

  30. love the videos but bruh some of this chess was infuriating

  31. "LIfe's about doing things you think you shouldn't. Sometimes."

    I'm making this my motto.

    Forget the "almost never" part that comes next.

  32. 20:44 can someone please tell me why the opponent gained a second there?
