Black’s idea is to avoid the traditional closed queen’s pawn games and create an open game with tactical chances, but at the cost of a pawn.

  1. What chess GUI are you using, please ? I want to see those stockfish move recommends as in your configuration. Thanks !

  2. Nd5after Qd8, Nc7 is much better, this forces black to take the knight winning you the queen with check, in turn winning the rook.

    Nd6 check is also good, bishopf8 takes, then you take with pawn, then Nc7 check, queen takes, you take Queen with pawn, you have a very far advanced pawn threatening to promote and be used in a check mate pattern, obv you bring the bishops and queen should be an easy win.cannot see an immediate check mate tho maybe i wrong

  4. Englund gambit is so tricky! Thank you by showing us how to send them to the funeral.

  5. 4:46 I never thought I'd hear the guy who helped me raise my elo by 400 points and who inspires me to continue playing chess saying 'I don't give a f**k'

  6. Nd5 if take then fork Queen and King otherwise fork King and rook

  7. I am trying to play the Englund gambit since I got motivated by your video, and now you are releasing a video on how to counter it 😂😂😂

  8. Your videos are the most helpful out of all the chess content creators by far. Always great tactical ideas and you explain the lines very clearly. Thanks again Igor you legend!

  9. I dont give a fork! Haha..made me rewatch that moment; as almost thought I imagined it! 🤣

  10. Be3, Q forced to f6. Qd5, forcing exchange of Q,s. Will win the rook by move f7. I f hxg4, rxh8

  11. For the puzzle 1.Nd5 should do it. If 1. … Qxb5 2.Nc7+ forks the King and Queen. If 1. … Qd8 2.Nbc7+ wins the Queen again since the King cannot move. If 1. … Qc5 2.Be3 Qc3 3.Nbc7+ wins a Rook. And if 1. … Qc6 2.Nbc7+ Kd8 3.Nxa8 and if 3. … Qxd5 4.Bg5+ wins the Queen.

  12. Bro you are so awesome keep it up man 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  13. Keep it up!! Ur videos are very good and i nowadays prefer ur chess videos over gothamchess

  14. Answer is Nd5. If qxb5 then Nc7 family fork and queen is lost. And after this, white is completely winning!

  15. Homie, I was literally watching your video on how to play the Englund and now you're pissing over all my hardwork 😭😭😭
