Love this opening
“Good things come to those who bait”
Absolutely amazing! Thank you!
nice video but most of my oppenent play Tennison gambit when i try to play scandinavian defense
This is so useful! My friend literally used these and destroy me. Thank you
1:22 white can bishop d3 best move
after Nb4 can white just play Bd3? i know it just trades the knight for a bishop but i think it prevents black from controlling those light squares around the king early in the game.
This trick will not work if White plays Be2 instead of pawn to C3.
you explain these opening traps better than anyone else, thank you!
White will play bishop to d3
2:26 What if white play Be3 ?( bishop to e3 )
and what if your opponent play bishop to D3 insted pawn to C3.
What do to if white play bishop to e3
I am stuck in 1300 elo how to increase points & how to think ahead moves
you should say more which is the best move for the opponent so that we can learn even more! huge love to, i have watched so many videos by you and learned so much, i went from being 1000 elo to 1400 in just a week<3
Naturally I had to watch this to learn how my opponents will try to trap me after also watching this video.
so as white you want to play Be2 instead of d4 or perhaps play d3 instead of d4 to cover up the diagonal and the square so black can't give a check with a double attack.
Hello chess friends, I bought this course "My Thinking System" in the past and what can I tell you, it was the best investment I've ever made in my long chess career!!
For this price, the digital quality is certainly not the newest on the market, but the "content" is first class! 🙂
What happends if the opponent attacks ur queen by the pawn f7 to f4? Please help
doesnt white bishop to d3 counter the trap?
Really you re the best teacher. Thank you I learned a lot from your videos. ❤
No forking body takes that bloody pawn.
‘They have to do something about that, and continues to take the pawn, but how many players would do this? I wouldn’t.
So I ran this trap and the opponent took a suspiciously long time to make a move (~2 minutes of the 5 minute timer) after I delivered the check with the Queen. Then they found Kb2. I suspect they ran it through Stockfish. I still won though.
What happens if white plays 7.Bd3?
That's a great video Igor, but you should give credit to Adamisko sach, the Youtube channel from which you certainly found this cool trap called the "Xena Attack" 👍
Do you have a channel where you play games?
What about bishop to king3 after knight pushing forward?
I usually just play Bb5+ in that position as white and then try to hang on to the pawn 😂
I have already won a lot of games this way, thank you.
@2:48 – White can play B-d3 to make sure that black's knight is eventually captured.
What if they play Be3 instead of attacking the knight? That blocks the check before it even happens.
What if white covers the check with Queen in e2?
What's wrong with white playing 7- b-d3?
i reached the position after 6. Nf3 in 5 games out of total 833 online, so it really is a relatively common position for Modern Scandi players. Until now I played sth else in that position but I'll try to remember using this here from now on, looks very promising, thanks.
Can you make a video how to play against scotch as black
I love your videos without your videks i would still be 500 elo now im almost 900
Genius and expert chess teacher GM Igor!
I have been stuck at 1500 for many months. Yesterday, I watched your video, "My Thinking System". I then went online to play, and beat a1650 rated opponent, and then an 1820 rated opponent in 30 minute rapid games. Today, I beat a 1700. I purchased the whole Thinking System course. I will let you know how it goes😀
Thanks for posting. i really enjoy crushing your followers who you make think these "EZ win" trash tricks work in the real world. Maybe create a playlist named "Chess for trash players" with all these videos so they can find them easier?

Hope this saves me in my first tournament tomorrow! I hope I crush a lot of beginners and intermediates with this. I'll recap what happened after the tournament
At 7:34 instead of castling, Rd8+ is better. The idea is that you want to play the move b5 after Kc3 instead of the rook sac. If you castle, then play b5 there is mate in 2 with Qa6+ Kb8 Qb7#. The move b5 takes advantage on the fact that the c4 pawn is pinned to the queen and the queen is stuck defending Qc2#
If black plays 1. e4 , d5
I go into the the Tenison Gambit with 2. f4
I have beaten an opponent rated 1725 with this one.
But a3 keeps gaining tempos on the knight
What about if queen goes e2 sure you can take the rook but he takes your queen?
After Knight to B4 my "natural" next move would be Bishop to E3 preventing any check from the Queen. After that move white can start to chase the Knight.
