  1. I've never downvoted your videos and yet when I opened this video to take another look it was downvoted. Dodgy stuff happening.

  2. the perfect opening tutorial doesn't exi-

  3. after watching this, I defeated 3 players straight

  4. Played this opening and lost 3 games in a row with the same person 🤩🤩🤩🔥🔥🔥

  5. The English opening is interesting but it’s a little intimidating when black plays e5 & breaks in the center with an early d5, making it a true reverse Sicilian because then white has to weather black’s center and kingside attacks.

  6. 1:15 King's Indian defense against English. Sounds familiar.

  7. Plz teach teach Sicillian Dragon defence

  8. These videos are so damn confusing. Guess I'm just an idiot.

  9. I like playing the english because i like to avoid most openings, like the sicilian, and all that other stuff.
    The lines are also very easy to learn too! this has been my top opening!

  10. Checking this video out now as a complete amateur, realizing I've been playing this opening wrong for a very long time.

  11. Whaaaaaat? Symmetric English is a legit opening??? I've been playing it for a long time as black because I literally had no idea how to play against English….lmao.
