About a year and a half ago, the RCA YouTube channel crossed the milestone of getting more than 5 million views. Last week, we crossed over 10 million views! Yes, although the channel was created about 8 years ago, we doubled our views (5 million) in only a bit more than a year, so we expect to keep this trend going and be viewed by the whole world, of course with your support. 😊
Highlights from Last Year
Since we’ve talked a lot about the RCA YouTube channel from the time it was started till last year when we crossed the 5 million views milestone in this blog-post, here we’ll only see the highlights from this last year.
Get ready for some excitement…. like this mice!
One of the important things we did (and we’re continuing to do) was that we published more video lessons for you, and did so more frequently. If you are an avid follower, you would probably know that we publish two video lessons per week – usually on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The next big thing is that we started doing live streams on the channel. So far we’ve done three live streams, two by IM Mat Kolosowski and one by IM Valeri Lilov.
We also expanded our author-base. We collaborated with new guest coaches. They are:
Also, in addition to our regular video lessons, we also published a couple of lessons where I interacted with RCA students and answered their questions. Here is a video of my interaction with an Indian GM, Karthik Venkataraman – LINK. And here is another one with another RCA student, Ali – LINK.
Finally, we published more video lessons about chess opening traps last year. A couple of popular videos are “5 Best Chess Opening Traps in the Queen’s Gambit”, which has got 200K+ views in 2 months and “9 Chess Opening Traps in the Center Game [for Black]”, which has got about 100K views in over a month.
10 Million Views Celebration!
The RCA Team and I would like to thank you all for your continuous support! Doubling our 5 million views in just over a year wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for each and every single one of you.

How to Attack with the King’s Indian Defense
Often times in middlegame positions, many questions run inside a chess player’s head. “How can I create an attack? How to find a winning plan in a complex position? How to deliver the final blow in an attack?“, and the list goes on. We have published a video lesson today answering these questions. In this video lesson, you will learn to how attack in the King’s Indian Defense. You can download the PGN of this game here.
