  1. Hey Kev! Have u settled down with wife and kids? Are u selling used cars?

  2. 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.f3 exf3 4.Qxf3 Qxd4 5. Be4…Qh4! as offered by Stockfish, pretty much debunks the Ryder Gambit, leaving black a full +1.62 points up after 40 ply depth analysis. One could argue that 5….Qh4 is not so easy to see here, but I wouldn't hedge my bet on that.

  3. Hey Kevin! We miss you! What have you been up to? Any plans to make more videos? Hope you’re doing well!

  23. I’ve learned to watch for white bishop takes on C6 and queen takes on C6+. I just didn’t know the gambit name and it’s variations. Now I’m ready. Thanks Kevin for your great posts. I’m becoming a better chess player than my peers by watching your videos.

  24. Great video especially the part where it's unfinished and just cuts off

  25. I play the blackmardiner a few thimes…without know, but I don't know what to play after Nf3, or this is the opening???
