  4. I really like that you cover so many openings that are off the beaten track or not super popular. If I may offer some inspiration maybe: At some point you should make a video about the Old Indian Defense. There are hardly any ressources at all about it and I think it might be a very underrated opening.

  5. Solomon, another great video! It's great how simple the opening is w/o having to study multiple lines. And I find your voice very soothing.)))))) I signed up for personal lessons, and hope to get to chat with you soon. Peace.

  6. I discovered this a while ago, I’m like wow this is really the French dense as white

  7. Have you don’t the HYPERACCELERATED dragon?? (e4, c5, ktf3, g6)

  8. Seems like an inverted French defense to me … and this black pawn on e4 is like a bone in the throat :))

  9. So glad you have not joined the ranks of so many other popular YouTube chess players whose only videos are all about Magnus vs Carlson allegedly cheating game. Thank you for staying true to your content.

  10. Yay now I got an opening when I mouse slip my e4
