  1. Jonathan stranz popularized this .. too bad he quit chess

  2. This has always been my favourite gambit of all time, white plays like a nub in the opening and it's really hard for black to even sense any danger if they have never encountered it before. Kf6 is not something anyone would think of at first

  3. 1:00 we still can play Nc3 after Re1, d5, sacrifice bishop Bxd5, Queen takes bishop, then we play Nc3.

  4. You're the best chess teacher online, keep uploading and Thank you. Also can you make a video about Tactical mistakes in the middlegame that will help us alot

  5. Checkmate in 3: rook F4, after black takes rook F4, queen check on G8, black rook covers with rook F8, queen F8 checkmate.

  6. 2:00 isn't after trading the rook for the bishop playable the greek gift sacrifice?

  7. Dear Igor, I enjoy some of your videos, but I notice, that the opponent would easily get out of trouble, as your pieces are easy to blunder.

  8. "Here is the time for your opponent to start thinking—and after a little bit of thinking, resign the game."

  9. Very nice gambit lines , thanks GM Igor sir 🎉❤

  10. The puzzle Rxe2 if Rxe2 then Qg8# if Qxe2 then you play Rxe2 he can't take with the rook due to Qg8# so Kxe2 and idk what's more is coming but it's a winning position for white also shouldn't the B2 pawn be forgotten, because of the back rank checkmate

  11. Indeed this is wonderful.👌🏻
    But can you talk about Ahmed Adly (Egyptian) who beaten Magnus Carlsen?🙏🏻

  12. Puzzle of the day answer
    H7F6 E4E7 D5G8

  13. 1.Rf4 is the winning move, however it is not mate in three since 1. … d6 gives the King some air.

  14. I always wanted a GM as my teacher to reach. 2000elo ,and thanks to you I'm finally 2000elo ,thank you Igor sir🙂

  15. Jonathan will be happy to see this. Sure i know the nakhmanson Gambit. But i try to play it just against players with over 2k. Below it the Max Lange is enough. 🎉😊

  16. I love all of these opening trap videos. But almost no one ever plays e5 in the opening in my games. Especially in blitz, everyone loves to use caro can to shut down tricky openings. Would be nice to see more traps against different openings

  17. just looking at the position in that video i would NxNc3. Taking with the pawn opens Q to d5,,,why not just play NXN then what white does?

  18. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. d4 exd4 5. O-O Nxe4 6. Nc3 dxc3 7. Bxf7+ Kxf7 8. Qd5+ Kf6! 9. Re1 Ne7 10. Qxe4 Kf7 11. Bg5 d5 12. Qf4+ Kg8 13. Qe5 Ng6 14. Bxd8 Nxe5 15. Rxe5 cxb2 16. Rb1 c6 17. Rxb2 Kf7 ∓

    Forced line (if both players know the best moves) and a clear pawn up in the endgame for black.

  19. won't work against me tho cause I only play the Rousseau gambit 😂

  20. 1800 opponent played this OTB once, i didn’t even see pawn takes knight

  21. There’s a fun aggressive gambit system I teach my students that might be useful for some adventurous souls looking to sidestep the Petroff or the giuoco piano and force things down the road to this gambit. 1.e4 e5 2.d4 ed 3.Nf3 Nc6 (if 3… c5 4c3 dc 5.Nxc3 gives a strong initiative) 5.Bc4 Nf6 (if 5… Bc5 6 c3 dc 7Bxf7 + intending Qd5 leaves black in a world of hurt) 6. 0 – 0 and you have arrived at the gambit position in the video.

  22. Can anyone send me a link to video where there's a link to blitz where a grandmaster explains how to win blitz games thanks forward

  23. Thanks for the videosta Igor. Reached 1000 for third time now, hope that 4th time isnt needed

  24. Thanks for the videos Igor. Reached 1000 for third time now, hope that 4th time isnt needed

  25. Actually, Zombie King gambit is the most brutal chess opening

  26. At 8:38, can't prevent d6 without check on every move. Can't check three times without losing too many attackers. Every piece that gives check will be captured, including the third one. So there is no 3 move checkmate. Stockfish gives mate in 21.

  27. Is the puzzle solution Rf4? Looks like it leads to checkmate or a free Rook
