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.

this has been a great experience, kasparov is the legend and he has inspired me since i was little. my dream is to become a grandmaster and hopefully play kasparov one day.

I really enjoyed learning tactics, strategy, endgames, and openings. He has inspired me to explore and discover new ideas. He also helped me to raise my Elo rating.

I learned about the endgame which was my main focus and I am satisfied with the course. Good job!

Great. Learnt a lot about competition, not only in chess, but life itself.

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.
