  1. Amazing vid as always. The Black Lion is so fun to play

  2. Excellent video. I’d never heard of the English rat. I love the Owen/English defense e6 b6 positions, but they’re very volatile if you make a mistake. I’ve considered learning the hippo a few times, haven’t gotten around to it yet. I could say the same about the black lion. Anyway, thank you very much for the information 🙂
