  • Question and answer

    Hi,

    I was thinking lately. So I have this new computer and I have not tested my features to its fullest yet. And it got me thinking. Back in the day, I use to be interested in creating my own chess videos. I did an okay job doing them too. I got a few compliments, I got a few constructive criticism that equally gave me motivations to stay in the market for making them.

    So I want to give anyone who believes they are a beginner to feel free to post a question of their choosing in the spirit of learning chess.

    I am not famous, nor did I write a book.. (Yet!) So this isn't interview questions. It's questions you would like to see answered by someone who is "not" a beginner, and has a lot of experience training players. And would just like to see another video opinion. You can ask specific questions, or you can request analysis of games. Yours or request one of a player you are interested in learning from. It can be from anyone. Even someone popular here.

    I am going to start doing it again on my own, and I would like practice. This would be a good way to start. So this idea has potential to help me. I will create it, upload it to either chessvideos.tv, or youtube, and post a link. Then we will go from there. If you enjoy the idea we can continue.

    Lets see how many are interested. (BTW: You don't have to be a beginner, you can be anywhere from the E class (Beginner) to the A class (First category). Objectively since I am only 1950+ there is logic that I cannot give real advice to my own class. But anything under the A class is welcome.

    Contrariwise: If you are at least a B class player and would like to participate in this idea as a trainer. And would like to know how to create videos. You can also let me know here.

    Hmm...for starters..."How should I analyse my games, and how do I make use of my analyses?"

      I could participate as a trainer if you still need someone. I already know how to make video.

      As for the questions: Would you be interested in having me as a sparring partner?

          I think that is a good idea. Are you thinking we play and then record the analysis?

          Depending on the depth of the questions, we could do one or 10. Like Rimuel there. That could be a solo question, or a question that could be answered with two questions. I am thinking at most 10 questions at a time max depending on the interest level, and then we can assign to interested tutors. Thanks for showing interest Alekhine.

          I am hoping we can see a growth in interest in this. Cause Video teaching could rise and replace email teaching.

            I would like to see/hear the actual thought processes of both sides during an actual game.

              Does the time control matter? Some people could get bored in an 8 hour game, and the games could get messy in blitz.

                Well I thought we could be sparring partner to train ourselves. We could of course use our training session as educationnal material. We could maybe both livestream the game we're playing on a different stream. People could then see how we think during a game. An other option is to simply play a game and then post the analysis in a video. Since we're living in different areas it would be harder to analyse the game together. However there is probably a way do to so. Hope you know one. People could also give us idea., tell us what they'd like or if they'd like it at all. Maybe they'd find this boring since we are not famous players.

                Time control doesn't matter for me. The only time control I hate is 1 or 2 minutes game. I hate bullet chess.

                  I suggest a 10 0 time control if you want to answer Phoenix's question. It's not so fast that you have to talk like a bullet train, and it's not so slow that people will have to stare at the screen for minutes.

                  Keep in mind that Youtube may have a maximum time limitation if you are not a premium user. The last time I checked it was around 10-15 minutes.

                    I see no point in ‘analyzing’ 10/0. Just play a longer time control and then both of you go over the game afterward using skype or something. Nobody in the audience wants to hear that someone blundered due to time pressure. Just play chess.

                      You COULD do long time controls, like 45 0 or more, but I don't think it's efficient if you give comments out loud during the game.

                      First, there's always a possibility that commenting out loud while playing will distract you, and make you think of and talk about things you don't usually do.

                      Second, there will likely be minutes of silence, as you complete your move and wait for your opponent.

                      Speaking out loud also slows down your calculation...and do you really want to let your viewers hear you calculate?



                      However, if you want to do a long game, it is still possible. You just have to record your thoughts during the game, and then after the game, load the game into your GUI and then start video recording, giving your comments and some calculations as you go through your moves.

                      This way, after you have completed your commentary on your move, you can immediately show your viewers what your opponent's move was. No need to wait. The video will also be MUCH shorter in length.

                      All in all, this would be more efficient, but it wouldn't strictly answer Phoenix's question, as your "thoughts" will be more trimmed and organised.

                        Update:

                        Per Rimuels request I attempted to record an example of how to analyse a chess game. The first take went fine and the video recorded because it was 20 seconds long. It was to test out the functions of the recording software. Then I did a real session and found out an important defect to my recording software in that it doesn't like video's are are over 2gb in size. The video was approximately 1 hour 20 min. Because I did a full analysis.

                        Because of this issue, I think I am going to plan a different topic based on the main topic where the video lasts between 20-30 minutes. See how that goes.. And then plan some sequel videos to cover loose ends.

                        Probably better this way because 1 hr and 20 min on chess is probably too long for most people anyway.

                        I will try to get it complete in the next day or two.

                          You should probably use a silent countdown timer so that you don't go overtime.

                          My suggestion is to analyse like, the first 20-30 moves in the first video, and the remainder in a second video. For this purpose it may serve you well to choose games that are 40-60 moves long.
