  • Hey Levy, you’re probably not ever gonna see this, but I just wanna thank you for your effort and time that you put into teaching us, the viewers, chess. I appreciate every second of your video because, you don’t have any filter when you show up in your streams or videos, its just you showing your love for chess. And remember, you shouldn’t care about the haters, or trolls. I know they can be very discouraging, but as a representative of the people who love what you do, we are here to support you! So once again thanks a lot, you’ve been a huge help to me!

  • I win a lot of games playing C4 with the London after developing bishop and knight, is this good? Often people fall into the trap where the bishop and the queen pile up onto the knight pinned on C6, but this is only one reason why I like C4 push as this trick does not happen much against the people of my rating.

  • Just throwing it out there, that maybe it’s a good thing to keep the KGcode and Twitch presentation / content a bit different? I find the music and chat pretty distracting on Twitch, so I’m glad that KGcode doesn’t have music, and I physically cover the chat portion of the screen with something. If people want music and chat then they can use Twitch, but maybe people would also appreciate the option of more focused content too? (I certainly would!) ps - Can KGcode users support the channel by donating anywhere?
