The Halloween Gambit features an early knight sacrifice by white to obtain a dominant center and lead in development. It is an extremely risky (scary, hence the name) but very fun opening that works particularly well in blitz.

  1. I will definitely try this. Thanks for the video !

  2. I think I'll give this opening a go. I always hate it when my opponent plays the 4 knights and this looks so fun xD

  3. are you england or from what place? I want to know your nationality because you are able to speak English and Spanish

  4. I believe there is also a variation called the Frankenstein-Dracula variation in the Vienna game

  5. Always wanted to play this but never knew if it was a good idea

  6. Hey didn't you have a video talking over stock videos of people doing yoga?

  7. Similar to a Vienna Gambit line, e4 e5 Nc3 Nf6 f4 Nc6 fxe5 Nxe5 d4 Ng6 e5

  8. What if your opponent is mirroring your moves and after you sack your knight they just do the same?

  9. can we see that 10000 dollars chess board again pls…

  14. Well, I dont always know what to do after the first step, this video is helpful😃✨🙏🏻but.. after what?🥲🤦🏻‍♀️I still have no idea

  15. Tried this against the computer and they moved queen to E7 after my pawn to E5

  16. My new favorite opening. Tried a match with it and destroyed my opponent

  17. I found a counter to the halloween gambit which is moving the queen in front of your king, but I eventually still lost with a knight and bishop pinning me.

  18. So a scholars mate with a few extra moves

  19. The board is turned wrong. It’s set up wrong

  20. Whoa that snap transition was so smooth! This is the first YouTube short I’ve watched on repeat! Make more like this please!

  21. Can you do a video on the king sacrifice gambit?

  22. Vienna gambit accepted also gets to this position

  23. Yo your chess board and pieces are so nice, where did you get them?

  24. You can get that exact position in the Vienna gambit without sacrificing a knight lol, a lot better

  25. I didn't realize I've been doing specific formation progressions.
    So this is Gambit.
