  1. what if after Bb5+,
    1.e4, c6
    2.d4, d5
    3.e5, c5
    4. Bb5+

  2. Hel, Is the Caro better than the Kings Indian or pirc?

  3. First move pawn from e5 to e6 it gives check to king and knight has to take away its opponent pawn then will take his knight with bishop then opponent king will take bishop then queen to f7 is a beautiful checkmate.

  4. Most beginners will simply push the pawn forward attacking the bishop???????

  5. Boss!! You are suggesting to exchange Bishop with Knight and that too so early in the game!!!! Not sure which kind of opening are you teaching here.

  6. all the 'tactics' presented here on YT assume that the opponent would play according to the script. Even on level 1600 players do not play as you would like them to play. And then, the whole system collapses….

  7. Please add PGN for all your videos. It makes it easier to follow

  8. Queen sacrifice on f5 and then pawn e6 mate

  9. I prefer Be6+, leaving the next move to Qf7 or f8 to mate

  10. Puzzle Solution: 1.Be6 check. If: Nxe6, Qf7 checkmate. If: Ke8, Qf8 checkmate. So, Be6 is the best for white.
    (If White to play.)

  11. So I'm getting into Chess and I've been watching some videos like this. What I don't understand is how these opening tutorials are useful. There are so many moves that can completely destroy the progression of the opening.

    For example, why does White move its bishop between it's queen and knight? Every time I put a bishop at G4 my opponent immediately places their pawn at H3 causing my bishop to retreat and waste valuable time I could have spent developing pieces.

    Honestly, if anyone could explain, I'm all ears.

    I'd really like to learn from stuff like this but I don't find this type of content very helpful.

  12. Thanks for the video, good educational for caro kann beginners.

  13. Nice work, nice pace,
    Best wishes Perth Scotland ❤ 🇬🇧

  14. Sir I forgot all the moves quickly what can I do

  15. Please make a video about french defense

  16. Are you conducting any coaching for beginner/Intermediate level

  17. hi sir just wanted to thank you… i recently came 2nd in the interhouse chess tournament at my school all thanks to you i have improved my london sys opening with additional tactics that you gave and your other in-game tips also come alot handy

  18. I have been following you since the early days of your channel. This is my new account but I never leave u.
    You are my best chess Guru.
    Thank you for enlightening me. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

  19. Puzzle solution: sacrificing the queen by Qf5+ then black knight has to be taken on Nxf5 then e6+ checkmate by the pown

  20. Be6 or e6 or qf5 all these moves ultimately leads to checkmate

  21. This makes no sense. Soon as you put your bishop on g4 to pin the knight they’re going to attack your bishop with a pawn

  22. Don't take sponsorships from BetterHelp. Multiple lawsuits have been filed against them for selling users' data.

  23. For the puzzle . can we sacrifise the bishop to e6 then mate by queen f7?

  24. At 08:02 if pawn takes bishop then what should be the move??

  25. be6 check,if nxbe6 + qf7 ckeck. if kxbe6 , qf7 check

  26. Please don't take Betterhelp sponsor. Take a look at their bad practices, there are alot of videos about them

  27. The "English sentences" are posted "on the Black Pieces". Hence , very difficult to follow the moves. Please post the sentences below the Chess Board. Plz. Look into it yourself.

  28. Capture that g8 knight with the f7 bishop if rook takes the bishop then queen goes to f7 and that is mate

  29. queen to f5 then knight takes then pawn to e6 checkmate
