  1. Elo 1800 lichess but when I started watching your videos I became 2000

  2. Whenever he says "You're almost never going to face this" it ends up being the most popular choice of my opponent. It seems that this is what people remember the most from the opening. Like, "yeah, I wanna be special and play this line". I guess. It happened to me with the Danish Gambit and the move Queen to e7 guarding the pawn on f7 after being attacked by the bishop and possibly the queen in alignment.

  3. I almost never see anything but the Bishop back to C5.

  4. I took the Evans gambit to a 1 minute bullet round and this was the result.

    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4 Bxb4 5. c3 Bc5 6. d4 Bb6 7. O-O exd4 8. cxd4 Nf6 9. e5 Nxd4 10. Nxd4 Bxd4 11. Qxd4 Nd5 12. Qxd5 c6 13. Qxf7#

  5. I moved my bishop to c4 and my opponent played NA5 immediately, what do I do vs that?

  6. Finally got the Nakhmanson gambit today. I wonder what went through my opponents head being +7 and getting mated in 12 moves. 🤔

  7. Hi Levy!, thanks for the video! I was wondering about evans gambit declined into Giuoco Piano game threatening the knight w/ pawn on E5. Is this a solid line?

  8. Any one else around here who doesn't understand anything in this vid? I feel like I'm the only one

    This isn't a hate comment I'm just an overwhelmed chess learner:)

  9. If you want to stay in theme, against the petrov you can still play Bc4, and either transpose to the Italian or end up in a Stafford Gambit up a tempo where for black to hold advantage they have to play ridiculous moves like f6, g6

  10. Hi Levy, I very liked this video! It's so funny: The gambit has my name: Evan+s(The first letter of my family name!)

  11. In the Italian game what is the next move attack after opponent moved H6?

  12. Evan’s gambit is basically all I play nowadays. Gotta blame agadmator for that one lol

  13. Ng5 is not yet the Fried Liver. The line you give avoids it and has another name.

  14. 5:31 Hey, not all of us are beginners nor do we play with beginners.

  15. engine also recommends ke8 in the nakhamson gambit and qf6 next move

  16. See… but what happens when they take with the knight after you play knight to c3 in the nahkmanson

  17. Very good explanation of the Evans , even I can understand it !!

  18. The nakhmanson gambit seems very similar to the lolli attack

  19. in light of your comments at the end of your video. Love your content Levy

  20. At 6 minutes Qh4 would have been a blunder as blacks bishop is eyeing h4

  21. Eh beginners play the knight to the edge of the board all the time….

  22. what if the black bishop attacks the rook on a1?

  23. Video made 2 years ago. You said you wanted to not pin the hateful comments because you wanted to see more of the good side of the community….. When did that change because it's nearly almost always the "Pin of Shame".

  24. That black subtitles are hiding white piece soo badly

  25. Because I play the Italian (I’m trying to learn, I’ve learned a main line already) and I kind of want to try something new, and you say that it is strong

  26. I watch this video 5 times before playing a game.

  27. Instead of Qb3, can't why also just get a better Fried Liver attack with Ng5?

  28. Ty levy you have tought me soooo much… after 10 years of learning from you specifically i have now reached 500 elo. TY lololololz jokes

  29. what should i plan on doing if at 2:27 black takes the knight on d2 threatening to take on e4 and realistically taking on e4
