  1. I play the Meitner-Mieses gambit! Truly super fun to play – the idea is that the Queen can not return to f6 when they take on f2, because of the Knight, so they no longer can protect their rook. You're also threatening to fork either side.

  2. Im relatively new at Chess, I love Nelson Iโ€™ve gotten out of his videos the most Iโ€™ve ever gotten among all the top Chess videos out there that Iโ€™ve watched. Thank you Nelson for giving us so much important information about the game of Chess.

  3. NM Lopez
    Cool video! Best of luck in tournament in November!! Thanks! โ™Ÿ๏ธ

  4. 6:00 you got this nasty fork and black can resign now
    The f8 bishop's honest reaction

  5. This ignores chess opening principles and causes one to have bad habits.

  6. "Go back to where they came from…"
    ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

    18:31

  7. 6:00 pov: you are 100 elo player and think you did a brilliant move

  8. Once upon a time there was a man, and that man had a long name. says:

    2:05 for the elephant gambit, when youโ€™re in this position, what would you do if white decided to capture the a3 pawn with the bishop with check, rather than with the knight?

  9. Strange. I have a positive win rate against Meitner Mieses Gambit as black. People have been mad at me over knowing the line.

  10. Nelson , I have been watching your videos for a long time and I have learned a lot.Thank you!

  11. The handful of times Iโ€™ve had Danish Gambit accepted, Iโ€™ve mopped the floor with my opponent. Itโ€™s ultra satisfying ๐Ÿ˜‚

  12. you have to know this here are the moves it starts with lmao

  13. At 1.50 pawn to b3 stops the queen attack. At 5.59 that nasty fork is just throwing away your knight with Bishop takes d6

  14. Wtf at 5:59 although it's a good fork with the knight it can be taken by bishop

  15. 4:57 its bc you dont sac the bishop they cant take with pawn bc its pinned and if they take with the queen they will lose their queen bc of the pin again

  16. I am a beginner Can someone explain how white wins in 6:24 I didn't get it

  17. On the second gambit when you fork the king and the queen, can black just take the knight with bishop ?

  18. On the last trap the black knight could of went to g4 because its covered by their bishop

  19. Great thanks to your nice chess gambit information.

  20. ะั€ั‚ะตะผ ะšะพั€ัะฐะบะพะฒ says:

    Yeah, boys, play more gambits and give me all ur pts.

  21. tbh i dont lije the 1st gambit what can easily take pices as black powers are trapped and cant castle.

  22. You canโ€™t say itโ€™s a 86% win rate but you wonโ€™t get that gambit often, thatโ€™s misleading, itโ€™s like saying the 4 move checkmate has 100% chance of checkmate on the 4th move, like sure if they let me get there in the first place

  23. For the DOUBLE MUZIO Gambit at 5:39, if white plays Qd5 check, black will most probably play Qe6 and then white can take the pawn on f4, giving check and then counterattack somewhere by saving the Queen.

    Am I right???????

    Please reply

  24. Next vid- "I analysed all of Magnus Carlsen's best games"

  25. 5:57 Doesn't that just blunder to Bxf6, free knight? Or am I missing something?

  26. 18:55 can someone explain me why does it have to be taken with the queen? It is the same if the bishop takes first and then give the checkmate with the queen right?

  27. 6:00 Why wouldn't Black move use the F3 Bishop to capture the White Knight?

  28. What if we play Falkbeer CounterGambit?
    Then the King's Gambit will be Terrible.

  29. at 5.59, does the fork work? isn't the knight attacked by the bishop?

  30. 2 gambit i love the most is evans and ICBM

  31. But the third most common move for black after freid liver is instead of Na5 or Nxd5 playing Nd5 black has 55 percent winrate thier

  32. triple muzio gambit nasty fork of white knight against black queen and black king but knight is can be captured by black bishop

  33. In the kings gambit accepted souble muzio variation gambit he bishop can capture the knight getting rid of the fork (5:58)

  34. Landau Gambit unfortunately isnโ€™t a gambit as it fails to sacrifice any material

  35. Fried liver seems pretty… Easy. Ya I'm like 700 elo and I'm 9 so I might try the fried liver with my cousins championship of game #35
    My cousin is 17 and the score to this day is 19-15 and I am 19. There were like 2 or 3 games ith a draw.

  36. This Knight fork never works because of black bisop.Bisob can prevent this fork.

  37. 6:01 what da hell the bishop can take the knight

  38. the knight can go to g4 as it is protected by bishop

  39. thank you for all the work you put in this video man. the output sure is awesome
