  1. My favorite opening is the Italian opening but after seeing this video I would definitely try the Sicilian whenever I will get the opportunity to play as black.
    BTW love your videos!!

  2. Pls make video on every variation of Sicilian

  3. how do you beat black if I'm using white against the Black Sicilian?

  4. My favourite chess opening for white is The kings gambit and the Italian game . black-Sicilian Defense

  5. Also the most complex one with tons upon tons of variations very hard for people under 1800….i think

  6. We can also give strong development by opening with bishop to support that pawn Bd3.
    In next step we can move that pawn in two steps. Quiet by these moves I can make my whites more strong. Both pawna are equally supporting to bishop and developing the next same move with knight is also good as you said.

  7. After watching this video I started a match and I am white 😭😭

  8. Fools mate video pliz I really want to learn chess properly

  9. The opening for you is the beating of the king like a heart when you say "chess talk".I like to laugh at it.

    Dont dare mind it


  10. can you make sicilian Dragon video please ?

  11. Queen 's Gambit , Evan ' s Gambit and Landon System is my favourite opening

  12. Sir me toh chess beginner ho toh pls mujhe bataye yeh variation keya heh😮😮😮😮

  22. Who else is sick of the vshred guy. lol

  23. You could totally use pieces without Cross on them. Chess is not a Christian or Catholic game.

  24. Which app or website do you use to analye games like this?

  25. London system is my favourite opening

  26. What if white plays pawn to f3 at 3:47? What is the best move for black?

  27. With White I almost always open with d4 I struggle with Black which is why I watched your video in a game right now I just played c3 I guess my next move is c4 ? Than bring my knight out

  28. my opening for white is Vienna opening for black is pirc defence

  29. The opinion of most grandmasters seems to be that a theoretically perfect game of chess by both sides would be a draw. Can chess computers and AI be programmed to yield their own evaluation of that basic question?

    From a god-like, omniscient point of view, there would be no such thing as an "advantage" in chess. Every possible position would constitute either a win, loss or draw, with perfect play. Similarly, every single chess opening would be either verboten, and leading to a Ioss, or would be equally among a set of openings leading to the best possible outcome (either win or draw, depending on the ultimate answer).

    Even artificial intelligence may not be able to definitively answer these questions, but can probably give us a better estimation of the answer than the best human players.

    It would be a shame if chess computers started spoiling things, for example, by announcing that, oh no, you cannot play the Pirc opening anymore, or the English opening, or Alekhine's Defense, etc, because perfect play would refute them. In some ways, our innocent ignorance probably makes chess more varied and fun. Yet curiosity for the real answers is still seductive.

  30. I will a lot with a Sicilian. I tend to be a little more cagey and not play my D4 pond until after of castles. This frustrates whites more aggressive postures.

  31. Vienaa gambit
    my best opening which i learnd from you sir thanks to teach us new openings
    i have a question are you a

  32. I've made a full FGN for this game, paste it in Lichess and you could see all variations
    1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. c3 dxc3 (3… Qe7 4. Bd3 d5 5. cxd4 dxe4 6. Bc2) 4. Bc4 cxb2 5. Bxb2 d6 (5… Nc6 6. Nf3 Nf6 7. e5 Ne4 8. Bxf7+ Kxf7 9. Qd5+ Ke8 10. Qxe4) (5… Qg5 6. Nf3 Qxg2 7. Rg1 Qh3 8. Bxf7+ Kd8 9. Rxg7 Ne7 10. Rg3) (5… Bb4+ 6. Nd2 Nf6 7. e5 Ne4 8. Bxf7+ Kxf7 (8… Kf8 9. Ba3 Bxa3 10. Nxe4 Kxf7 11. Qb3+) 9. Qb3+ Ke8 10. Qxb4) (5… d5 6. Bxd5 c6 7. Bxf7+ Ke7 8. Ba3+ Kxf7 9. Qxd8) 6. Nf3 Bg4 7. Bxf7+ Kxf7 8. Ne5+ Ke8 9. Nxg4

  33. You’re very good. Clear, easy to understand, exciting content, (traps) and all but one of the main attributes that isn’t talked about a lot is your positivity and pure optimism. Pretentiousness and egotism surrounds chess as we all know unfortunately. Even my favorite YouTube chess tutors are probably not those with whom I’d like to meet. Your kindness and generosity is encouraging. There are clearly a few good people left in the world. Too bad you’re on the other side of the earth, brother. Thanks for the efforts.

    Latvian Gambit is my favorite. 🙂
