🔹 TRICKY Chess Opening for Black Against 1.d4 [Unstoppable Attack] –

♛ Find these Hartlaub-Charlick Gambit variations and games in this blog-post –

If you are an aggressive chess player but not sure how to deal with the White’s first move 1.d4, when your opponents try to play the Queen’s Gambit or the London System, this video lesson is right for you!

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you an unusual and tricky chess opening gambit called the Hartlaub-Charlick Gambit from the Englund Gambit, which happens after the moves 1.d4 e5 2.dxe5 d6. Your first move 1…e5 stops 2.Bf4, therefore your opponents cannot play the London System anymore.

Watch the full video lesson as Igor presents to you the main opening setup for Black, common middlegame plan, and how to execute those plans in different variations. You will also learn what to do when your opponents do not accept the gambit and play some deviating variations.

  2. Ive gotten to the point where i dont know even how to play with all my pawns anymore. They just get in the way and slow me down.

    Aggression and Gambits forever. ❤

  3. oh this is really cool. I normally play the Albin counter gambit against the queen's gambit. But in about half of the games the play something other like the london. I'll try answering with e5. (still have to watch the variations btw). thx!

  4. Any opening that negates the London gets my attention!

  5. Hi Igor, i've been dealing with Catalan opening in OTB tournaments and I don't know a good, maybe solid defense since my e6-d5-c5 pawn setup isn't reliable. Can you recommend any video about crushing the Catalan?

  6. Oh, of course! Black can transpose into the Charlick Gambit! Of course, white can then transpose into the Center Game with 2.e4, but I'm never playing against the London again!

  7. Which is why I never learned the London System lol

  8. I love how you make every opening seem unbeatable. But I learn the lines by heart & my next 5 opponents play the Hippo or something 😭

  9. Welcome back Igor Nation.
    (Igor nation merch when??)

  10. 1. Thank you for finally covering a lot of lines in fast manner in one video.
    2. Now I am in confusion: which opening to choose against d4: b6 (since I started playing b3/b6 after your previous videos and leveled up from 1300 to 1500 instantly – thank you for that), or to come back to this line?..
    3. Could you possible please show few optins how to counter London with b6 opening, since I always get cramped/blocked position…
