  1. Been playing this for a while, 99% play the advance. I just want some practice against the exchange lol

  2. can you cover the pirc defence czech variation ?

  3. Can you please make a vid on the semi-slav

  4. After not playing chess for a year and forgetting this opening when playing with a friend, GothamChess is still the first place i go to for a good explanation :p

  5. I missed a lot with this defence but at the end I grasped and I won a lot recently

  6. Love watching your educational videos honestly, i come back once a while to refresh my memory

  7. Is this almost like the cicilan defense?

  8. I havent played since middle school, a good 12 years ago. No one to play with in person as i prefer. Your channel got me motivated to get back and been playing again online for a week straight every day and rewatching your old opening tutorials. Thank you! I didnt realize how much i missed chess.

  9. I just post memes in the comment section says:

    Just played my first game using the Caro Kann! It went great until I blundered my queen! I'll keep trying tho; I'm only 850 ish

  10. levy: beginners who are like at 1200s or 1400s….
    me at 500: soooo…am i an egg???

  11. Hey, it was a nice video. Hope your level will stay very high !

  12. Maybe now I can stand a chance against the elo 600 kids that take 3 mins to do simple pawn moves with 90+accuracy

  13. I notice top chess players seem to study what has been done in the past, know all the names of moves etc. I’m wondering what ELO someone could achieve with zero study but just constantly playing against higher ELO computer opponents. Would you reach an upper ceiling that would necessitate study?🤷🏻‍♂

  14. Good explaining tnx to that strat l won like 6 games in a row and got to understand some other good wariants to play

  15. What if white plays e6 in the advance variation? I feel fxe6 just opens up too much, but I think it's worse to push f6

  16. Mr. E.Snowden,
    Can you please cover the Sicillian Khan/O'Kelly Variation.
    Correct me if I'm wrong but they seem like brothers.
    Just kidding about called Eddie Snowden – It's actually a compliment to your cool look ; )

  17. what do you do against the von henrigg gambit? just respond with bishop e6?

  18. Why is the black king to the left of the queen and white king right of the queen?

  19. If i beat nelson as black, am i then 1300 elo ?

  20. Isn't this Basically the London for black? I mean You open different but you end up Almost the same.

  21. I looked this up after getting an achievement for playing it accidentally.

  22. When I get black pecices then I well also play craco kana defense

  23. I did this: pawn to D4. Then I responded with pawn C6, (like you said!) and then they did QUEEN to F3!! Panic ensued!!! Life ruined everything ruined !!!1!

    Lol. How should I respond with a Queen to F3 in that situation?

    Thanks in advance

  24. Me after watching this video: Now let’s try Caro-Kann Defense!
    White: Plays King’s Indian
    Me: Wait, that’s not in the script.

  25. What about people who play wayward?

  26. my stupid ass just realized I played well dozens of openings without even knowing it was all elaborate theoretical strategies 💀

  27. I used to play the King’s Indian Defense, and I found that it was a bit too passive for my taste. The Caro-Kann fit me perfectly. You’ve done it again, Levy.

  28. I have been doing it all this time and didnt know it

  29. What if they play BC4 on their second move

  30. What if on the protect line after you move your knight they play bishop to protect it?

  31. Me: Watches this video with full attention.
    Also me: Only remembers the first 2 pawn moves.

  32. ive recently started learning chess and took to the scandinavian defence, ive noticed when they dont accept the opening pawn trade knowing how to play from the caro-kann is very handy knowledge, or atleast it feels like it to my untrained brain, apologies if this is touched on in the video i just started watching

  33. Bruh this is lot to take in. So much information and movements in 10 minutes. If this is one opening and I know there are fuck ton of openings available, I'm fucked. It's so hard to remember every movement individually.

  34. I am a beginning, chess player, and I am trying to learn, but I struggle to memorize the moves. I am supposed to make based on what my opponent does. Any tips?
