  1. I hit pause button at the start of the video thinking the video did not start. That's how long Levy was staring at the start.

  2. Are we all going to ignore that Levy played Walter White 💀

  3. me watching this :
    playing chess :
    playing with black peices :
    person playing with white peices : plays e4 plays c3
    me : bro i just watched a gotham chess vid abt this wth-


  5. Thanks for the upload Levy, however I just had a game with 22 blunders, please make a video on how to have 21 blunders or less

  6. omg, I've been thinking about this opening a lot recently. im so happy you made a video of it!! i want more opening videos just like the old times. You're the best teacher. who's with me? <3

  7. This doesn’t work with bots, but I just played my first ever bullet game and won in 18 seconds

  8. Levy congratulations to you and your lovely wife on winning the Twitch award. Could not happen to a better man.

  9. After watching this video, I tried ponziani. I got mated in 8th move. I enjoyed it so much…

  10. Best opening of all time that makes me lose 10000000 elos

  11. Thanks levy absolutely destroyed my friend (he fell for both the bishop and the knight trap lmao)

  12. Congratulations on winning the chess streamer of the year !!!!

  13. In the first game the queen had the g4 move :((

  14. I'm 1800, my go-to answer to the Ponziani is and always has been f5 (Ponziani Countergambit), works like a charm against unprepared opponents

  15. I've been playing the Ponziani for about 1 year now, and I can confirm it's absolutely fantastic. I'm 1600 rapid now and it still works very well. Apart from the traps that people still fall into, you get a good position with center control.

  16. Why, at 4:34 do you kill bishop with queen, if you hit bishop with bishop they still have to take with queen and you promote with check. When they block with the queen you kill the queen with your other queen and its checkmate. (I hope that was understandable, lol)

  17. This does not even work against AI of 1500 ELO 😀 he brings out the queen early and stops any attack on that side

  18. I hardly remember a video called Watch this. Gain 500 elo.

  19. I was really hoping that this was ponziani, but definitely didn't think you were actually gonna loool this opening is so fun

  20. How to win if we are black in this opening

  21. Sadly i watched you too much and now I am +1450 elo so I have to play the chess game after the opening but I always loved to watch your opening videos keep it up champ!

  22. The only issue with this is now it's gonna get overused lmao great opening btw

  23. Exactly when I needed an opening with the white pieces! Thanks!

  24. i think it would be very cool if you made the video a bit longer but add an actual pro game with the opening you are showing, to see how the pro's have been using it
    great video thank you

  25. Repent your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior God as your lord and savior God is merciful and he will forgive you

  26. Y’all got gaming PCs to play a board game

  27. Wow ponziani is soo good, im still gonna play london

  28. Sf6 is a aggressive Petrov Defence. Looks very nice! 🔥

  29. That knight promotion fork was absolutely everything holy shit

  30. Me watching as if id remember a single move:

  31. what if knight b4 at 13:17? Because, yes there is a pawn guarding that square, but you can't take because you'd lose a rook. Also, if you do nothing, the knight can take the hanging bishop on d3 the next move. Just a 900 rated player, so It's highly possible I'm missing something crucial here. Can anyone tell me why knight b4 is a bad move?

  32. If you don’t take in min 7.15 with en passent you lost your right to play the game

  33. Who was here when the title was watch this get 500 elo?
