  1. I love the Kings Gambit, I would love some back to basics on it. Thank you !

  2. I won my first game playing this thanks for the new main opening

  3. I did the first 34 seconds without realizing I love ur name Gotham Batman would agrees being black give u an advantage to being balck

  4. Really enjoyed this. Helpful, fast paced, and clear. Went right to lichess and played black vs computer. Lots of interesting game results. Thanks.

  5. The Caro Kan't is okay. Like the French, have trouble with the advance variation

  6. In the advanced variation, after black plays C5, what do you do if white plays bishop to B5?

  7. can you make a video of the QGD side variation called the Tartakower with b7-b6 setup..black wil get at some point hanging pawns on C and D5 and there is my problem, how to get an advantage with that one..Thnx & Cheers! NB: I bought this Caro Kan course on your website earlier and the E4 course today. Really indept and greatly explained like how you always explain in your video's. Keep up your great work and vids 😉

  8. Richard Hislop - Harvest the Nations says:

    This is great! Thanks!

  9. What is the best black defense opening to learn first?

  10. There’s so many variations of all the openings that blur together and I’ve never been clear on what is the decisive thing that makes it be karo kan, instead of kings Indian or whatever

  11. Thanks for the time-efficient format!

  12. Watching this every other day.
    And it helps, thanks!

  13. I keep watching this video again and again because I forgot the move

  14. This is like french defense users worst nightmare

  15. I haven't lost last 6 games with black. thanks

  16. Well after learning the London and winning with white and always losing with black here Iam lol.,, I seen levy got punched by a subscriber after pissing him off. He should be more careful if I punched him he would probably die

  17. what do you need to do if white plays kc3 on their 2nd move?

  18. I picked this because it sounds the coolest

  19. I need some help with the openings, mainly a black response to 1e4, Sicilian is just too sharp for me and the Ruy Lopez is just too tedious. I'm actually a decent middle game player but my openings and endgames are not on that same level. As a chess fan I was so happy when Magnus came along and basically said "Fuck Theory"

  20. Hi Levy your ten minute openings are brilliant. Could you do one on the Fred defence. I would appreciate your analysis.

  21. Watched your one Caro-Kann videos and I’m 1200 now I was 900

  22. So what's the move if they push the white pawn to d5 on their second move?

  23. Maybe it would've been a good idea to watch this rather than learning it by trial and error, still worth the 10 minutes it took to watch next to the 200 games of trial and error

  24. This is the most helpful. When I reached 1800 elo this is almost always what my opponent plays

  25. Been playing this for a while, 99% play the advance. I just want some practice against the exchange lol

  26. can you cover the pirc defence czech variation ?

  27. Can you please make a vid on the semi-slav

  28. After not playing chess for a year and forgetting this opening when playing with a friend, GothamChess is still the first place i go to for a good explanation :p
