Akhil A K
Mato.. I appreciate your  commentary more than anyone else's. The patient manner in which u narrate the game.. sans any made up excitement, yet managing to thrill us to the best... is the best part ! It's so mature narration. Shows the knowledge of a true chess player who is into the art of chess. ️ I'm sure that once anyone watches any of your game commentaries... he is sold. Such is the beauty or the experience delivered by ur videos.

I was rated 1100 a year ago but now I am rated 1789 and still improving just by watching the games showed by Mato and analyzing them daily for 1-2 hrs. I even won 2nd place in my college blitz chess fest where some strong players rated above 2000 also participated. Thank you, Mato 🙂 you should be the most subscribed channel in chess category.

I will admit as a university professor I have shown your chess lectures in my classes even though the class has nothing to do with chess lol

Thank you for the inspiration and love that you gave us through your chess channel , you not only taught us about the game but also the basic principles of life by relating your own experiences.

I was so influenced by your lessons that I couldn't stop myself from writing this. In my opinion you the best chess coach I could ever have, please never stop making new videos on chess and bye for now.

With Regards

Hey there Mato, I enjoy watching my husband play chess. He had me watch one of your videos today and we had a great time with all the different variations you presented. I may be terrible at chess myself, but I think if I watched more of these I may be able to play my husband and at least give him a run for his money! Thanks for all the time you lend to making chess so much fun! gina
