    Anna's pieces cannot properly develop midgame because Otz already prepared multiple traps on the board during his opening. Tar bottle makes sure they are hard to spot on black tiles

    you should play kings gambit, its a agressive openning where you sacrifice a pawn to get more mid control and tactical advantage to make agressive moves. It suits you perfectly and it's my fav as well.

    I know it has probably been suggested quite a few times already, but maybe if you are interested into possible openings you might be interested in the danish gambit for white, based on sacrificing three pawns for a good development and with a lot of tricky and aggressive lines. Anyway nice video, it was nice to see also this different kind of content, hoping for more in the future

    When I grew up I had a pretty poop childhood; Taken from mom for phys abuse, went through a few foster homes, lived with aunt lived with dad back and forth - homeless and emancipated at 16 - BUT one wonderful memory I have despite that was when I lived with my aunt. She was always out working or goin to collge and I had this old guy babysitter named Marty and he was the best ever, like a dad to me. He was actually quite wise, a bit of a comedian but overall always quiet (literally) and one day he sat me down with a chessboard and was like, this is how you move the pieces, lets play. I lost immediately. He would reset the board and say lets go again and I lost. I'm telling you - I hated chess at first. I lost every game for months, let me tell you. He wouldn't let me win even tho I was just 11/12. He bought me a book from barnes and nobles, some kids book called Lets play chess I think, I read it and learned about blitzkrieg and other maneuvers, just basic stuff and then tried to win again but failed. Some days I didn't want to play chess but back then we didn't have computers (i had an old thinkpad, thick as a dictionary, black and white, but no internet) and my only other thing was reading in the library, so we would play casually while doing other things. Finally after 4 months, I beat him. And then, a few days later, beat him again. And I remember being like, progressively better and better at chess. When yahoo games came out I would play chess online and I was nearly unbeatable. I played at school and with friends, it was my favorite game. . Bad part of the story however - as I got older I got so much more into pc games, eventually I just never played chess again. Now I STINK SO FRIGGIN BAD. I'm 33 now and my chess skill level is kaput. I should play it again.

    I think you should improve pretty quickly if you apply to chess, Otz. You already see moves you shouldn't see at your rating, you really are just a little too hasty with your decisions, probably a consequence of playing too much fast time controls and focusing too much on "aestethic" chess, but that's normal in a beginner

    This game called "chess" looks really unbalanced. Why are Pawns so weak and a Tower or Queen can almost move everywhere, wtf? Even DBD is better balanced. The game is this bad, I have to guess that NotOtzdarva is doing a big sponsor placement, like Raid Shadow Legends, if I had to guess. (btw I really like the idea of you playing chess ;) )
