Are you searching for an aggressive yet solid chess opening that can catch your opponent off guard and lead to exciting, tactical battles on the board? Look no further! Today, we’re delving into the thrilling world of the Belgrade Gambit, a lesser-known gem that can leave your opponent struggling to find the right moves.

The Belgrade Gambit unfolds after the standard opening moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6. Instead of opting for the more conventional 3.Bc4, which is a popular choice among chess enthusiasts, White chooses 3.Nc3. At first glance, it might seem like just another developing move, but it sets the stage for some remarkable traps.

After 3…Nf6, White plays 4.d4, opening up the center and attacking Black’s pawn on e5. Black usually captures the pawn with 4…exd4, but instead of recapturing immediately, White surprises with 5.Nd5, known as the Belgrade Gambit.

  1. 3. … Bc5 is obviously problematic because of the centre fork trick of course, but I thought that Black's main alternative to 3. … Nf6 was 3. … Bb4.

  2. I learn every single move of opening from you Mr. IgorHope I can reach 2.000 to challenge you

  3. This is why alpha0 only plays queen side openings.

  4. When you said A rare checkmate by Bishop it feels so nice to me

  5. Igor: "and then you completely dominate the game". Me: "29 blunders are waiting to be made"

  6. The puzzle solution is that you sacrifice the queen for the rook and then you fork the king and queen with the knight on f6.

  7. Nf6, and if Q:f6, white takes rook and is defending the bishop h6. White wins material and has a very strong position

  8. 1.QxR QxQ, 2.Nf6+ picking up the Q

  9. for the puzzle doesnt knight to f6 solve the current issue? he is in check so he can not take your queen and if his queen moves he is instantly in trouble, if he doesnt take with his queen and moves his king he is boxing himself into the corner

  10. Yea.. well, You're ignoring Blacks 'French Defense'?
    You've brought this up for BLACK to kick Whites ass.. BUT.. why you abandoned WHITE!!??

  11. Kf6 quen takes knight, QXe8, black quen try to do trade off, bring rook to e file

  12. nf6+ Qxf6 Qxe7 is my answer to the puzzle. Your opponent can't take your bishop because theirs is pinned.

  13. In response to the puzzle at 5:18 – I think white should go Nf6! with a fork on the rook on e8. If the king moves, then Nxe8, and the black queen cannot take back because e8 is defended by the white queen. If black for whatever reason decided to go with Qxf6, the rook on e8 is no longer defended and white can follow with Qxe8. Black may try to trap the white queen with Qe7, Qe6 or Qe5, but this is simply a queen trade and white is up a rook for a knight. I'm thinking white can add pressure on the e file with one of its rooks, and also Bc4 to check or control the diagonal (depending on Black's first move), so although being 2 points up is not huge, positionally white is very strong.

  14. Very instructive, thank you for the help. Merry Christmas.

    09:17 Playing Black against the Belgrade Gambit

  16. The puzzle solution is very simple. The move was Nf6+ to fork a rook and a king. Black queen couldn't defend a f6 square and a rook at the same time so he will eventually lose materials.

  17. 5:17 I think it is Nf6+ ,if they take with the queen, you take the rook. If they play Kf7, you take the rook with the knight then they take back with the queen and you can trade queens and also trade bishops and you’ll get a queen,rook,bishop for queen,knight,bishop so +2. If they hide the king on g8, you can just take the rook with the knight and they take your bishop so still +2 but there is probably a better variation that leads to something better

  18. Nf6+ checks the king, black probably needs to capture it with the queen, leaving the rook undefended.

  19. Puzzle solution Qxe8, Qxe8, Nf6 forking Queen and King. He then can choose the bishop or the knight to compensate material.

  20. When you say things like "& then there's just too many threats…" I'd really like it if you explained those threats as sometimes I can't see them! Lol

  21. That's great Igor, you are a master. This is Raj

  22. belgrade gambit happening in real life atm with the situation in kosovo

  23. You didn’t cover black’s bishop to c5.

  24. I'd try QxR and after QxQ White knight forks Q and King.

  25. Wow! Thanks a lot Igor! I am a Italien Player and the Belgrade gambit suits me perfect as a variation! 😊👍♟

  26. 7:00 thats top level of Stockfish analysis. The computer also likes to block the board with funny trades pins etc.

  27. I love four knights, so I'll definitely be using this! Thanks teacher Igor!

  28. I play the Belgrade and have many wins with 1.Nf6+. If 1. … Qxf6 then 2.Qxe8 wins the exchange and leaves Black in a difficult defensive position with Bc4+ on the horizon. If 1. … Kh8 then 2.Qxe8 Qxe8 3.Nxe8 Bxh6 4.Nxc7 with an exchange advantage. And if 1. … Kf7 then 2.Qxe8+ Qxe8 3.Nxe8 Kxe8 4.Rfe1+ winning material.

  29. I am curious, in other videos you have mentioned the bishop opening. Would you mind expanding in detail on the bishop opening? I really enjoy your videos and wish I could remember all you say. Another question I have is, how can I increase my move accuracy? Thank you for your videos +.

  30. I am was a gaint noob before I know this channel 😊😊😊
