  1. Mio, I like your lectures, maybe because we play alike. I'm 1800 though.

  2. So they play g3 to block the check, then you take the pawn, they block with the Queen, then you take the rook, then they play Nf6 and trap the queen. Now what?

  3. You have something better than winning the queen for three minor pieces. You have unstoppable checkmate after you take the bishop and you play Qf5+ and d4+. Do NOT go for the bishop fork. Go for Qf7, and after dealing with any mate-delay checks (a.k.a. 12…Bb4+ 13.c3 Bxc3+),play hxg5+ and Rxh5#. Ran that through the computer, best moves for you.

  4. Sometimes openings are named after the player who played them, other times it is named after the person who published the analysis of the opening. This is a case of the latter.

  5. Yeah, this opening is not a practical one

  6. Can anyone explain the following. Butcher said that after you take the pawn with your knight, if the opponent moves anything but their queen, you check them with your queen.. but what if after your knight takes on E5, if they move their knight to E7?? It seems like a mistake to then check with your queen on H5. Am I wrong?

  7. Mio is back! Great start. Cant wait to see the other e4 e5 lines.
