  1. question what is kings indian yugoslav variation

  2. What if white plays E4 f3 d4? It would allow them to push that pawn onto your knight before you have a bishop to back it up, and they get to take your queen first

  3. Great video, thank you! And coffee, two cups in the morning and that's it.

  4. If theres an f4 opening can you play it queenside? Ty

  5. Tea AND coffee. Coffee to get me through work, tea to get me through losing 300elo until I get one good game.

  6. I wonder how long until the King’s Indian name gets changed due to appropriation. Clearly it’s causing severe worldwide problems…at least for those who play it, anyway.

  7. I don't understand 5:45. Doesn't white win the knight here and gain material advantage?

  8. I am really confused on how openings work…is it called King's Indian? Or King's Indian Set up? Of King's Indian Attack/defence?

  9. Thank you whoever made king's indian I can finally get a checkmate with black

  10. When your there 4:27 and they push e5 how do you manage the knight?

  11. I need a video against the kings Indian ad black

  12. Ya know, Levy is the perfect to break chess openings perfectly for idiots like me, I've become soooo Good at the Caro Kahn at 1600 lol

  13. Levy is literally the most underrated chess teacher on youtube!

  14. i actually played the indian defense when i thought it was made up
    plot twist: IM INDIAN

  15. I’m a coffee drinker but love a good tea every now and again.

  16. i literally just played beth harmon with this and she said " why not play with a real opening? while using the same exact opening as me….

  17. Over the span of a year the King's Indian has carried me from a beginner 100 rapid ELO to 1500. Love the opening. So many sharp positions. Thanks Levy, I watched this a year ago to begin my journey.

  18. Hi, I started playing Kings Indian when playing Black (and London when playing White) and after 8-9 moves my development is usually complete, and all of my moves are graded either good or excellent. And in my last 4 games I have been absolutely obliterated by my opponent within about another 8 – 10 moves. In my last game, playing KI (black) I only got one piece into the other half of the board before I was destroyed.

    What's the point of having a solid opening if I am then destroyed by my opponent? My ELO has dropped from 610 to 570 so I'm not good, and neither are my opponents.

    Any suggestions?

  19. Thanks for the vid!
    Also: Tea, one or two cups.

  20. No better combo than afternoon tea and chess!

  21. You won't see this Levy, but just know that ever since I watched this video I've been finally able to enjoy black defensively. This is literally the only black opening I play ever and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart from opening my eyes to this. Please do more videos on it, or cover the Pirc!

    Love from Portland, Oregon.

  22. The 10 minute or less opening intros are fantastic! Thx, Gotham

  23. Great opening, this was the first time I started understanding derivatives in chess, watching my opponent reacting to my reaction in advance.

  24. The game bot bought it's bishop on G4 🥲and ate my knight 😭
