Oh, sorry. That's probably bad. You could go Qh4 but Rdc8. Instead of f5? Instead of-- that was a bad move. f5, right? Rd1. You should play solid. This one is bad move. This is also bad move. Thank you. We cannot waste time. Time is precious. Time is--

4.7
Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

It was a great series of lessons that include tactics, endgame strategies and certain keypoints in a few openings. Kasparov teaches well and has given us a lot of ideas to work with and explore and study in greater depth.

Not only has this Masterclass helped with chess but with my choices in life believe it or not. The way that Kasparov delivered his messages really, truly got to me in the most positive way. Thank you Garry and I look forward to seeing more lessons (optimistically)

It was awesome! I admire Garry and I have learnt a lot about chess and life skills!

Absolutely Amazing ! Learning So much really wonderful. Did not expect it to be so enticing and mindblowing!

for those if you pause and the "things" pop up, solution is : after you pause the video, then press ">" and "<" at you keyboard, the "things" will disappear. It is much more troublesome but the things will not longer blocking you.

Terrible editing and filming. When I pause the video adds and info pop up, I can't even look at the board. Would have loved to see these matches.

I agree with others that the filming of this video was edited poorly . The game by the female I couldn't hardly see at all.

Ben G.

Does anyone know the pieces and board used in this? I would love to get a set. Very beautiful.

Richard R.

Editor inexplicably decided that Kasparov’s thinking face and the students backs were what we needed to see here. Since it would only require re-editing, it shows MasterClass is too lazy to make this highly requested fix and give us 90% top down view.

Who ever filmed this entire series does not understand chess. The the camera angle and board perspective is wrong the majority of the time.

the players in green don't press the clock properly, so GK didn't lose time!!

Philip V.

I don't understand the point of this video. I couldn't see the games properly. Please explain.
