  1. The queen can take the rook on the first opening

  2. hey im black and its not letting me move the black pieces like you are can you guys help me?

  3. Wish I could memorize these traps. Good video.

  4. I hate that all these teachers don’t show the very end visually…can you see how you can win…and they go to a different subject …finish the strategy all the way to the end ! You assume everyone sees what you are talking about

  5. Thanks for the video bro I was suffering to play as black

  6. awesome traps… but i think we should not use traps

  7. Thank u very much for teaching us wonderful traps….I really liked them

  8. These are some extremely wonderful ideas sir… Thank you

  9. Game with white pieces is game of David Bronstein

  10. so, will you all put this in your game??

  11. Χαχαχα κατάλαβα ότι είσαι Έλληνας από την προφορά σου

  12. @2:00
    Ng4 is not a good move to attack the pawn e5,,
    Because the queen will only move to e2,also to threat ur knight,
    And whichever knight takes on e5,,
    Then youll be 1piece down,,
    Pawn to f4 will be played and whatever you move,, you will lose a knight,
    thats why Ng4 is not a good move, when pawn attacks you on e5

    Other variation were just a blunder by white,other move is just obvious what black would do or i dont know if hes just a beginner,
    , anyways its good for starter

  13. इसे कहते हैं दिमाग का भो*डा होना

  14. Nice video but 99.9% will go KF3 on their second move attacking the pawn instead because the idea is to not only put pressure on the pawn but get it out of the way ASAP so you can King Side Castle.

  15. You are actually brilliant person.
    I follow your videos

  16. It's really help me a lot in black pisa

  17. You are very informative, like your videos,love your accent(very good English)

  18. Those tactics won't work. The players are not fools. These tactics only work on beginners
