  1. Bro the first game I play after this video doesn't go anything like this

  2. at 5:33 – why would the night have to go back? I would intuitively move the night to a5 attacking White's bishop … or why is this a bad idea?

  3. What if black Bishop takes Knight before castling ?

  4. What if knight goes c5 after it captures the free pawn?

  5. This guy has much better content for lower rated players than Levy. GM too.

  6. Can you only do this if your opponent responds with e5? What if they do another opening?

  7. Checked in an app and it's called goring gambit

  8. what elo range should you play this? i'm1200 and cant seem to make it work

  9. I think someone tried this position against me. I think so because their position in game looked very similar to this. At first I thought they were aiming for some weird scholar's mate trick. I declined the gambit and played in such a way where I used my knights to prevent their bishop from going to certain squares. And they ended up with such a messy opening. I could be wrong, but the position in this video just looks very similar to something i've experienced before in a game..

  10. Hello igor nice vid but for me it isn't working they always play bishop to e7

  11. 7:05 What if he defends with pawn to F6 after queen moves to C3?

  12. Most of my opponents play it wrong now I'll crush them with there opening

  13. Divya Jyoti दिव्य ज्योति says:

    That's so good information sir

  14. i tried this on Lichess. 95% of the people do not follow the black moves AT ALL. and things turn very messy quickly!

  15. But why do we celebrate Christmas in December, when nothing is mentioned in the Bible

  16. But what if black plays pawn f5, please explain

  17. I played this today oh my god i checkmated him from all sides

  18. Theres a couple holes where this plan falls through like if they take your knight with bishop but what a cool new strategy

  19. Thanks for the video! Any suggestions if they take your knight on C3 in the opening sequence? Then you loose the advantage of being able to move to D5.

  20. What if black doesn't take the c3 pawn and instead moves their pawn to d5?

  21. only thing that could stop this opening would be realizing it, and move to long castle

  22. Nothing is mentioned about Christmas in the Bible

  23. I’m curious, what would you do if black plays Qf6 after blocking black with Nc3? Great video! Cheers, all. Forgive my amateur question.

  24. Igor is the best. He should have an own TV show!😊

  25. Grandpa Gambit wiped the floor with me when I tried this opening 😭

  26. What to do if black just moves there pawn to c2?

  27. So my problem is people in my elo just don't take the d4 pawn and compeletly ignore it

  28. I have that annoying friend that always beats me at chess, but thanks to your video and this opening, I'm getting revenge on his @ss.

  29. Igor, thank you for the video.”I find it helpful. Quick question, what would you do if, at the beginning, black moves his Queen to f6?

  30. Since I started watching this channel, am beginning to dislike most chess channels I followed.

  31. No one I play will ever make the correct beginning moves needed for this Gambit opening. I have tried the moves 15 times, and no one ever recaptures the Pawn on C3. It's as if they are expecting something. I don't play highly ranked players, and they have no idea that they are normally fine in the Danish Gambit wt the correct responses. I can play someone who plays strong. 1000 or above. Unfortunately after a bunch of losses the chess site I visit, only puts me up against beginners. I can never defeat a beginner. The moves are always extremely bizarre.

  32. what if they don't take pawn at the very beginning?

  33. Let me 100% real, there is no one (on youtube at least) who explains chess openings and tactics in such details and in a very sweet sweet voice.

  34. Messed up a bit in the order but fell back on my feet ^^
    I've tried it on a couple games and it's definitely a fun opening, thank you for your content!

    [Termination "senzaaa a gagné par abandon"]
    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Bc4 Nf6 5. c3 dxc3 6. O-O Bc5 7. Nxc3 O-O 8.
    Nd5 a6 9. b3 Nxe4 10. Bb2 b5 11. Bd3 Ng5 12. Nf6+ gxf6 13. Nxg5 fxg5 14. Bxh7+
    Kxh7 15. Qh5+ 1-0

  35. This doesn't work if black Plays conservatively like playing pawn to G6 on there first move.

  36. I'm loving your videos Igor thank you. Though when you suggest black knight takes e4 and a bad option. Surely that knight can be defended by the queen sliding over to e8 in the next move, meaning it can't then be taken? Is there are solution for that?
