It can be annoying when you fall for an opening trap and then lose the game because of it. Thanks for the fun and exciting video; hopefully, I can remember these lines in the future. 😀 I look forward to seeing some more videos in this series. A video on the Queen's Gambit?

  2. Perfect timing for my upcoming tournament!!

  3. Oh cool! So much Useful Information about the Rue Lopez. And The Pacing of this video makes it Much Easier to follow along then most other videos out there. With this new found knowledge getting a new elo score should be a breeze. 🌬️ I'm excited to at least try. 🎉 😁

  4. I hope you start playing those traps instead of 4.d3 😈

  5. I started reading the complete book of chess strategy which one of your recommended book nice book very easy to read.

  6. I always play the Italian instead of the Spanish, but I watched anyway, since I'm often defending against the Spanish (and get trapped a lot). Would it be possible to get a follow up on the Italian or the Scandinavian? Traps from the Black side would be interesting as well. Thanks for such detailed content!

  7. Wow! Since when did Anna Cramling go from being cute to a bombshell?

  8. Great video with easy-to-follow explanations. Thank you for what you do.

  9. Make your opponent rue the day!

    I intend to play this until i get that wicked queen-sacrifice double-bishop checkmate you showed near the end.
    Great video, Hannah.

  10. That checkmate is so good it had to be shown twice in the video, well with two different queen moves that does the exact same thing (Qg4+/Qf5+) 24:10 24:44 Trolling aside nice video!

  11. I would love to see you create a series where you start from a low elo and progressively climb while sharing your knowledge with us! I just discovered you, you are awesome!

  12. 24:15 you covered this checkmate twice? 😯

    amazing video~
    I feel like it would be nice to have you look into the camera once in a while

  13. How is it I have never seen your channel before?
