  1. Van chetto? Vian ketto? What? Said many times in the video

  2. 4:30 it's said many times. What does that mean? "Van chetto your bishop"

  3. I have full volume on my headphones and i dont know if i will have a heart attack in the intro music

  4. Jesus Christ died for your sins on a cross and rose again after three days. You have committed evil deeds, as we all have done. God is a just judge, and must punish you for these sins, because he is perfect by his nature. But God loves you, does not want to punish you. This is why God took the form of a man, Jesus Christ, and died as a sacrifice for your sins on a cross. He was punished for your sins, so that you could be made righteous in God's sight. After three days, Jesus rose again, because it is impossible for him to have been held down by death.

    This is great news! Repent, (that is, change your mind,) and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and be saved from the judgement of God. God will reward you for your faith with eternal life, and forgiveness for your deeds. I sin, and you sin, and we both will continue to sin, but Jesus Christ died for these sins, and God is willing to forgive them. Please, repent, and believe the Gospel.

  5. Jesus h4 Christ, get to the god damn point

  6. so black moved his pawn to d5 after i c4 open. I developed knight and he takes my pawn, what is a better way to combat this. If i move d3 to back it up, yeah i will still control the light square i want, but his queen can take mine and mess up my castle. I am new to chess, and I dont know what the best way to counter that is. can anyone help?

  8. What about bishop b4 for black after knife c3? I see that a lot it seems people want me to double my c pawns as white and I usually just ignore it

  9. One of the most explosive openings (C4)

  10. Ur videos are better than most on openings. Because u go over most openings and allow us to learn. For other videos they give one certain game that usually is either grandmasters.

  11. Bullshit! You spend the whole video on the first 4 moves, and you dare to make a video lesson. Shame on you!

  12. Very good video! Shows ideas and structure-dependent characters of the positions! ( it is "Fee-ahn KE-to". The ch in italian makes a hard K sound!

  13. This english opening is amazing i feel like invincible πŸ’ͺ

  14. I'm getting a kick out of how many comments are about the intro music….not that you guys are wrong but never the less, it is still very funny to see.

  15. I like to play D5 in response and it transposes into lines that I like to play so yea that's an option.

  16. These videos bring back a ton of memories, when I first started chess in 2012 these were the first chess videos I ever watched. They really helped me create a good opening foundation. Know I'm reconnecting with my roots to prepare for a big tournament.

  17. I'm a National Master who plays the English. Check out my full English Opening Repertoire! @t

  18. what do you play if black plays d5 after whites first move

  19. opponent : plays English opening C4
    Me: Aborts game

  20. I should probably learn how to play chess before watching thisπŸ˜…

  21. Demetrius Demarcus Bartholomew James III Jr. says:

    Opening music too loud.

  22. 2 minutes just to explain the first moviment??? Fuck

  23. How can light piano music be so devastating?

  24. Just played a guy that opened with this… most boring game i’ve ever played…

  25. You talk too much. This video is twice as long as it should be.

  26. What if black immediately attacks and takes your knight on c3 with their bishop, wouldn’t that ruin your pawn structure and your control on d5???

  27. wow 12 years old! this is nearly older than the britain empire.

  28. I really appreciate this channel. I have seen some of these videos on my t.v. using an Amazon firestick just because I can see better on a bigger screen. I have yet to figure out how to like or anything else using that device so I decided since I like the videos I've seen on this channel and they are helping me understand chess more and more that I would subscribe to this channel using my much smaller phone in appreciation.

  29. LOL I was 3 years old when he made this video
