  1. I recently started watching your videos, your explanation is very easy to understand
    keep up the good work sensei!!

  2. Excelent vid. Thank you so much. Maybe you might show some model games of the openings, that would be awesome.

  3. I have played scotch gambit line and faced few variations before, you are very good at explaining this sharp gambit opening and a hidden gem of opening for me, I realised that you missed Bb6 by black line at 9:00 , this move invite a potential of Na5, if theres any queen &bishop battery on b3 & c4 and leave white with double edge position with high in development, but isolated pawn on c file and down a pawn, maybe you can recommend/suggest an idea on this variation

  4. Showing the evaluation bar is brilliant. You can see how every move effects the position 👍

  5. Dude you are like 2 lightyears late from everyone else. Even the sneaky Ng5 is a known move.

  6. Next video please on how to defeat the French defence

  7. What happens if black Bishop retreats to e6 instead of f5 or d7? Could you please discuss the continuance or am I asking a silly question?

  8. Why haven’t you discussed that possibility?

  9. I was late in seeing this video. Today I was royally screwed with the knight sacrifice at f7 and followed by Ke8.😂😂😂

  10. Good video but it'd be helpful if you make playlists 😊

  11. Please make a video about Evans gambit. Thank you.

  12. Ur explanation is very soothing and easy to understand . You are gonna go a long way . Beast of luck.

  13. Very good coach 👏 👍 , please we need a video for refutation of scotch gambit .

  14. Another great, and very clear and comprehensive video! BRAVO!!

  15. This is mostly similar to Evan's Gambit

  16. That early knight moves as you say works up to 1100 but safely works under 950elo. Anyone who doesn't respond automatically and sees what is happening will refute it

  17. That's another thi g if anybody makes two moves early on in the opening or gambits a pawn you know there might be some traps or other tricky play ahead so think carefully when this happens. Just do some calculation to see where it potentially leads

  18. oponenet always plays Qf6 after I do the second move Nf3

  19. Yeah , going the king to g6 and then to h7 is so unnatural. Why anyone would prefer to get his king to the edge of the board where he can easily be defended and not leave him in the centre of the board attacked by all the white pieces? I am talking for the line 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 4.d4 exd4 5.Ng5 h6 6.Nxf7 Kxf7 7.Bc4+ .Only a cheater or someone who has analysed this can find 7…Kg6. Because it is so terribly difficult to see that the king will be safe on h7 that you have to be a grandmaster or a cheater to see it. The bad thing is not that you have no idea what you are talking about , the bad thing is that you assume everyone else is as ignorant as you are. A 2 move calculation is so difficult that only a cheater or a grandmaster can do it. I do envy guys like you that make people laugh without even trying.

  20. I call the first one the Drunk Knight gambit 😂

  21. As a chess player in my 60th year of playing chess, rated 2000+ on Lichess, this is another suckers gambit. The sucker being the one who plays this! The move Ng5 violates the good general chess principle of
    not moving a piece twice in the opening before developing your other pieces. Move that
    Ng5 and no, I dont push the pawn h6. Rather I develop with Nf6. Toss that Bc4 and I respond with d5. I just
    love it when 1600 and below players think they are sharp and try to place forcing lines. Forcing lines that once
    exposed as simple one move attacks with just 2 pieces that is easily refuted. Its much better to develop your pieces effectively with rock solid main line openings like the Ruy, Sicilian, French, KID, KIA, QGD, QGA, etc. Guess what? I exclusively play KID, KIA, Gruenfeld, etc. systems and you will NEVER pull this on me. You will play my openings, I will not play yours.

  22. @9:55 I have a very similar problem with the queen and 2 bishop battery right now playing as black. The issue is that I can see it. But I don't think my opponent can. I've checked several of his games playing others and I'm sure my op has no idea. But I can't sleep on this so Im taking measures to oppose it. Its a bonus when your great videos and explanations closely match games I'm currently playing. BTW I'd still love to see you play chess against someone and possibly hear your commentary about your moves and the ideas behind them. Thanks again.

  23. This my preferred continuation after e4-e5, Nf3-Nc6. Many thanks.

  24. Hi, Thanks for the video. Is there a lichess study for all the variations shwon here?

  25. the knight sacrifice traps is my creation, i played it at chess,lichess,and fly or die since 2016, many oponent fall for the traps, some are elo 2000up

  26. Thank you sir for another great opening!

  27. I think you missed a situation when Black doesn't capture our D4 with his pawn and instead moves his pawn from D7 to D5.
    We can play Bishop to C4 after Knight is put down by Black king

  28. Black just move the queen … 😂 problème solve

  29. You missed most important something in the main posiotion what if black plays knight to H6 white bishop can not take because white knight block it diagonal

  30. At 14.18 black can just give up b7 pawn coz for black Bd7 then if white queen takes b7 then Rb8 causes white to lose Bb2

  31. Thank you! Very nice lines on the Scotch gambit.
