  1. I want to hear from the CHESS PLAYERS. What do you think of this approach?

  2. How the hell your not famous in all the world dude yet??!

  3. Hi Nelson, for the scenario of having 1 piece on the 2nd square ONLY, instead of action, would it be easier to have an object to memorise?

  4. Hey man ! This is very interesting, I might try it out :-). But as a chess player I firstly memorize a position because of its strategy, its logic.

  5. 1:45 The queens start on their respective colours so your chessboard isn't right. A chess player would memorize by steps. First, associating as fast as possible each square with its color. Then, you train to visualize whole variations in your brain. Finally, you try with small games (already played by others, a miniature would be nice). When it becomes easy, you do it with longer games. It is not recommended by medicine to it with more than one game. The effort is too important for the brain.

  6. I love this stuff. However, maybe you should take the time to learn how to set up the board. You need to rotate the board 90 degrees, so the rightmost square is white ( for both white and black).

  7. This video is very helpful for beginners, excellent content. Surely it will motivate others to follow.
    I #BrainBlitzAudios appreciate it.👌👌🧡🧡🧡😊😊😊👍👍

  8. Hi Nelson Dellis, I m a thick follower of your channel.
    And I am a fide rated chess player as well(Not big fish)
    As an amature player, this technique does not benefit much for chess players.
    Nevertheless, it is a good memory exercise.
    What I understood, grandmasters have got numerous patterns and positions in their mind, which they do not stored by any particular technique, but by practice, that help them make decisions.
    It would be really beneficial if we could transfer these techniques to remember these patterns, or to store end game positions etc, but chess players may not like conversion, because the pieces has got strong sense in their memory rather than converted characters. ( These are my personal opinions)

  9. Anyone know the chess board and pieces used here?

  10. How about making patterns(square triangle rectangle or lines) with the pieces on the chessboard and using a linking method to create a story along the pattern

  11. Nelson you are so creative I could see it this video intro and PA associations
    What made you so creative??
    Is it practiceing memory techniques??
    How creative ware you before you became a memory athlete??

  12. That intro tho 👀🤩

  13. The thing that i see with this tecnique is that you dont remember the spots that are beeing threaten and are empty you just remember them as 0

  14. Hello Nelson, great video ! I'm on the same quest for chess 😀 being regular player myself, i realized that a system for memorizing board isn't that helpful. The best would be to memorize patterns and tactics combinations. Chessable does a great job to make you memorize openings, with spaced repetitions, like memrise.

  15. what were the king and queen before you rerecorded those bits hahaha

  16. I tried your technique few minutes ago. I took 30 minutes to memorize the peices' pictures and actios, create the memory palace and organize them in the chass board. That was awsome. PS.: i got wrong about 6,4% of the pieaces. But this is a low percentage I thing. I for sure could get better.
    Thanks to this channel owner.

  17. This is a good technique but I think it involves a bit too much work. Chess players who have studied for years can naturally memorize a chess board becuase of pattern recognition so its probably best to get a foundation in Chess then memorizing the board will come a lot more naturally.

  18. Uauu Ótimo vídeo. Vou por em prática seus ensinamentos. Valeu!

  19. Visually, the video looks extremely sexy

  20. Great video, as usual! I'm taking out my chess board to try this right now!
