  1. Defence guy – The Thumbnail is wrong, the missile shown is a long range air to air missile (most likely a Meteor) and not an ICBM.

  2. This must be the preferred Russian chess gambit of 2022.

  3. I was dissapointed when Levy didn't even send the RT-2MP2 Topol m cold-launched three-stage solid-propellant silo based intercontinental ballistic missile for the RT-2MP2 Topol m cold-launched three-stage solid-propellant silo based intercontinental ballistic missile variant of the tennison gambit, black was 2000km away from your silo, why didnt you? International master my ass (obviously im joking)

  4. …The original video isn't linked in the description.

  5. Similar gambit with the black pieces as follows!
    1. d4 e5 2. dxe5 Bc5 3. Nf3 d6 4. exd6 Ne7 5. dxe7 Bxf2+ 6. Kxf2 Qxd1

  6. did anyone else spot that after Nc6 the queen is trapped?

  7. After watching this video the first match I played started with the scandinavian defence and I was able to feel my opponents salt 😀

  8. I use this concept all the time, but you don't need to waste a knight and a bishop. If you set up your bishop on c4 early, and remove the D pawns, you can send bishop to f7 and they have to take. Low development means good chance they can't take queen back or even save half their pieces from back rank queen. If they have already developed their knight to c6 then you have to trade and get it out of there, at which point you will probably have to use your knight to force the king out, since you probably placed light bishop on b5, which isn't guaranteed.

  9. I LITERALLY PLAY SCANDINAVIAN AND FELL INTO THIS TRAP NOT EVEN AN HOUR AGO

  10. just send them a missle like a normal person levy, no need to learn more openings and lines!

  11. There Is a blunder after Qxd8 if Nc6 don't take the pawn with the move Qxc7 because after e5 your Queen is gone… Just to add something to the video

  12. average Bosnian Ape Society enjoyer

  13. funny how in the meme video the board is not oriented properly

  14. it’s rare when it happens but when it does it feels amazing

  15. Levy you forgot to put the video link in the description

  16. Oh boy i just spent 14 minutes studying an opening attack i hope all my opponents don't play every opening except this one!

  17. I just got tricked by this gambit this morning but my opponent got his queen trapped and I held him to a draw

  18. 3:40 do not take the pawn because of Nc6 and the queen is trapped

  19. i always play the scandy and my opponent never ever plays this line

  20. Lol I once played this gambit without knowing I played this gambit

  21. Such a strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
    How about a nice game of chess?

    Oh, wait…

  22. Hey it isn’t my fault that were within 400km of my missile silo is it now?

  23. Exact same trap you get in the Budapest, but for white.

  24. Ah, a fellow bosnian ape society watcher

  25. I am glad I watched this video before trying to play Portuguese Gambit.

  26. Guys, help. Where can I send my game to him? It was so freaking amazing, 99% moves

  27. i was literally working on the ICBM variation wiki draft lol

  28. 3:40 If Qxc7 then Nc6 and your queen is trapped… I would go Qd1 or Qd3+.

  29. @ 9:39 : What is those? Those are the ugliest set of three pawns. -Levy Rozman, 2022 Chess Memes

  30. I laughed out loud at your disgusted tone at 9.40 – top stuff 😂

  31. what to do if they pull out their queen

  32. Of note, after playing Bc4, you can do Nxf7 to get a really nasty little fork on their queen and rook that they cannot stop, resulting in them being down a rook in exchange for your bishop if they move their queen, or a huge advantage of them being down a queen in exchange for your knight if they move their rook instead. And they won't do e6 to block your bishop from your knight because that loses them their queen or rook anyways.

  33. At 3:37 DO NOT take the pawn! The opponent can play Nc3 and your queen is now trapped.

  34. 3:37 Actually, you shouldn't take the pawn on C7 either, at least in this exact position. Black can play Nc6 here, and the queen has literally nowhere to go. And Nd5 or Ne8 is coming. (e.g. after 9. Qxc7 Nc6 10. Nc3 Ne8 11. Qxc6+ bxc6 Despite having 3 isolated pawns, Black is still considered winning because he's up a bishop for a pawn, has a stronger center and the bishop pair.) You're welcome. I know I just saved you, random comment viewer.

    What you should play from here when you see 8. …Nc6 or 8 …e5 is to IMMEDIATELY bring your Queen back to d3 with check. I'll leave it to you to work through what to do to stuff like Bf5, e4 or whatever else Black can do, but White should have avoided most of the traps in this position (except for something like 9. Qd3+ Kf7 10. Qc4+ Kg6 11. Qxc7 Nc6 because this is literally a transposition of the move that would've trapped your queen on move 9).

  35. At 3:40 if white takes the pawn with Qxc7, black can play Nc6 which traps the white Queen.

    I found this using Stockfish. Don't know if someone has commented this before me.

  36. "I'll put it in the description." The biggest lie ever.
