Multiple chess grandmasters have used the Vienna Game and achieved great middlegame advantages because of it.

  1. Much more in depth study of the vienna than any other video ive seen. Ill definitely be back for more.

  2. Any lines I should study after black goes knight to C6 on move 3? I want to play bishop to C4 but that makes my pawn to G3 on move 3 look really stupid.

  3. Really enjoying your tutorials. Thank you! You deserve far more subs!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  4. I've just found your channel. It's great, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. What on Earth are our Grand prix attack type fashion pieces up to? Vroom.

  6. Excellent video. I've been playing 3. f4 or bishop c4, but I might start incorporating g6 into my play. Looks pretty nasty. Thanks!

  7. Thanks Solomon, very interesting. I have a simple question: On move 1 what happens if the opponent plays D5? Do we just take it and get on with the opening as usual with the fianchetto and NGE2 line?

  8. Hi, very nice and instructive. What line can go after 2…Bb4?

  9. This opnening is very flexible. You can used this line against Sicilian Player..

  10. this system is a bruh moment the whole time

  11. What about 2. knight C6 instead of knight F6? Very common at my level ~1500

    Is it still a Vienna game?

    I think most prefer the Vienna Gambit after knight F6. I'm lacking a clear cut plan against knight C6.

  12. For a long time I was baffled at what the point of b4 (at 3:13) driving the Bishop to b6 was. I just realized it simply gains space on the queenside. Duh!

  13. What a wonderful vedeo on the Vienna Game…

  14. Could you do a video on the Vienna Stanley variation sometime please. It is a really common variation, which hasn't been covered much!

  15. can you explain in short what the whole idea is?

  16. At 1:30 why not play Na4? Get rid of that pesky bishop aiming at your king. It's not a bad bishop because it's outside of the pawn chain, right? Isn't it better – even if trading minor pieces tends ultimately toward a more drawish or less-attack-y game?

  17. Awesome video! I simply love this, sometimes I struggle when opponent goes for opposite side castling and attacks my king with his pawns.
