About Niclas Huschenbeth

Why are you on Patreon?



Hey, this is Niclas.
I'm a Chess Grandmaster from Germany, aspiring to become one of the Top 100 players in the world. Also, I love to share the chess knowledge I have acquired over the years through my YouTube Channel. Now, with Patreons's and really your help, I want to combine these two passions. I want to play in top tournaments all over the world, competing against the very best.

At the same time, I want to share my progress through my channel and help and inspire others to improve their chess. Now, to compete in strong tournaments, collaborate with other grandmasters and be able to focus my energy on achieving this goal, requires financial support and that's why I am on Patreon. 

Currently, I have a chess rating of 2590 (July 2017) and am ranked No. 8 in Germany and No. 265 in the world. To enter the Top 100, I need to achieve a rating of about 2650-2660. You can check out my statistics here.

How does it work?



If you wish to support me on my journey to reach the Top 100, you can choose a specific amount you'd like to contribute each month. Depending on the amount you choose, you receive certain rewards (besides my infinite gratefulness).

For example,  if you pledge $5, you receive my 2,5 hour video course on the most important tactical motifs in chess, get access to one past patron coaching per month and be listed as one of my supporters on YouTube (if you wish so). You also receive all the benefits of the $1 reward tier.

Of course, you can cancel your subscription at any time. Please don't support me if you need the money yourself :)

Where does my support go? 


Your support will enable me to play in strong tournaments all over the world, crossing swords with elite players. Also, your support will allow me to collaborate with other grandmasters and employ seconds to help me with my preparation.

Going to tournaments and collaborating with other players will give me the opportunity to create more content for my YouTube channel in form of tournament vlogs, interviews with other grandmasters and of course, game analyses. I'm also considering doing live streams in which you can train alongside with me

Here's what I do on my channel


Game Analyses

I love to analyze and explain top grandmaster games as well as my own games. Here's my analysis of a fantastic game featuring a queen sacrifice between Fabiano Caruana and Hikaru Nakamura from the London Chess Classics 2016:



Live Commentary

Similar to game analyses, I also very much enjoy commenting live on world class tournaments. Here's my live coverage of the thrilling tiebreaks in the World Chess Championship 2016 between Magnus Carlsen and Sergej Karjakin:



Matches Against Other Chess YouTubers

This is so much fun! I love to play against other chess players on YouTube, playing competitive matches up to five points and commenting on my moves while playing. Here's a game from a match I played against famous YouTuber Hutch. What was special about this, I played blindfold, that is I could not see the pieces during the game. As you can imagine, it was a mess! 



Instructional Videos

I love to teach and share my knowledge from what I have learned in my over 20 years playing chess. For example, in this video I show you the technique of how to checkmate with knight and bishop



If you want to support me on my journey becoming one of the best chess players in the world and/or like me to continue putting out content like the above, you can choose a reward level from the right hand side.
