Thanks for responding ErichteRed. You are right about the position, I wanted to draw arrow to c6 instead of d7, because after black's only moves like ng4 or be6, Nxc6 is the threat. Your move Qa6 is one of the many options after passive moves like Rc8 or g6, but black has so many options to win the game that Qa6 is not the "main" threat because white can also play d4 or b3 which might be even stronger. In other words the position is hopeless and too passive for black, so you can find many options to punish black's position. But I surely made the mistake about Nxd7 instead of my original intention Nxc6. The position I showed in the video is practically lost for black and showing the deeper winning variations of hopeless position was not the purpose of the video.

I appreciate for pinpointing my mistake and I hope I can satisfy you on the next video. Good luck !

In this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEUJ53hA5VA

about 3.5 minutes into it, if Black plays 10...Nf6 11.Re1, White is NOT threatening 12.Nxd7 "winning the game."  That's an uncomfortable position for Black, sure, but the threat is 12.Qa6! and 12.Nxd7? would probably be a mistake, allowing Black to get out of his problems after 12...Kxd7. 

I agree that 11...Kd8 looks like the best move, but didn't watch anything else after that.

Alright I will give away few tricks that you probably haven't heard off, but before that, I have to say that all coaches teach differently and none of them are wrong or right. Some students need the coach to be a little softer than usual while others require a coach to be fierce. On the other hand what's wrong if your coach becomes one of your best friends, is that good or bad? There is no straightforward answer to that, because sometimes the student will lose the required attitude towards the coach and he will start acting and joking during the serious training session. In general good coach:
1)analyse your games and detect where you are wrong, this is the most important factor besides your own home work which is the most important part of becoming a master.
2)they give you some homework depending on your available time and checks them
3)he thinks about your overall progress.

Okay so besides that let's talk about few tricks I told you about:
1) Want to know a secret how to see tacktics like a master? They use so called woodpecker method. It means you take let's say 100 tactics puzzles and solve them over and over again. Once you can solve them all in 1 day you move to the next 100. ***Important note, when you solve them second or third time you have to calculate all the lines again, not just first move or main idea!!! With this method your brain will memorize tacktical motifs by heart just like you remember mating patterns. This is 100% checked and I have many examples who improved their tacktical vision to grandmaster level.
2) They learn openings by learning the middlegames that arise after them. Explaining the pawn structure, where your pieces should go, which pieces you should exchange, which to avoid exchange, what pawn moves you have to open up the game and what is your general plan.
3) Psychological factor! The best coaches will prepare you psychological to go threw hell to win the game. I am gonna quote one coach: Forget about who you are playing , what opening your opponent specializes in, and any other potential distractions. Just play chess, sit down at the board and try to crush your esteemed opponent so badly that they will never want to play chess
again . Do everything possible (and ethical !) to ensure that you will destroy your
opponent into a hopeless depression. lt doesn't matter who you are playing or
how long they have been a master, an expert, a 1600 rated player, or a world-class
GM. Don 't be afraid to g o straight for the win. I guarantee that your results will
shoot up enormously if you look your opponent in the eye and make it clear - you
are going to do everything possible to beat them in an embarrassing fashion.

I keep same strategies and more with my own students.

And one more thing, I do believe that good coaches don't play chess professionally simply because they will have the time to give his 100% to his students and care about their success, not about their own over the board.

I will try to talk about all this and more later in my channel when it grows a little bit, if you would like to keep in touch please subscribe.

Dear chess players and fans, I am young and enthusiastic chess coach who loves to work with passionate chess players all around the world and I decided to start my own new youtube channel. I' am chess coach from eastern Europe, I'm currently working as a chess coach in schools and teaching kids from 5 years old, I am also helping an international master  as his second and helping him with opening repertoire and I have a few private students from USA. I'm young adult but I have spent over 10 years on playing chess in different tournaments, I had an opportunity and privilege of being a private student of two international masters for 4 years. I'm also studying at university and finishing my degree. Chess is my passion, it's the first thing I think of every morning and that's the main reason I wanted to make some videos and share it with the community of chess. It's brand new experience for me and I know it's far from perfect but those are very exciting to make and I am more than happy if at least one viewer improves his chess knowledge

I will upload chess videos including every aspect of the game: positional play (pawn levers, how to play with different pawn structures, how to improve your pieces, prophylaxis, manoeuvring, playing against weakness to mention a few), tactical skills (explaining how to become a better tactical player, how to to improve your calculations), opening repertoire (newest chess opening books included, explaining the main ideas and plans behind the moves), endgame studies (step by step explaining every major endgame). The material will be taken from my own analysis, newest chess books and I'm gonna retell what my IM coaches learned me. I do it because I love to do it.

P.s. I have tony's permission for this post!

If you liked the videos and want to say thanks, please subscribe!
