  1. Which is the best football or chess or cricket

  2. As a bishop, I can confirm that this opening goes hard.

  3. Can someone explain to me why at 2:44 we would be forced to move our king first rather than just doing the knight G6? Is there a trap I can’t see?

  4. if white plays d3, and knight c3, then you can play d5 when they play knight g5. How to counter knight c3?

  5. At 7:30 the great Levy says they can’t really move the knight anywhere. I studied kf7 in this position and I can’t see a good enough response from white to understand why they can’t really move the knight “anywhere”

  6. Levy: I am not in danger of losing to time.
    Also Levy 5 seconds later: I'm going to speed it up a little because I don't have much time on the clock

  7. In watching a precious GTE vid, Gotham decried his sub for playing exactly this, saying "I don't know what Gotham Sub is doing. Maybe they think they're playing a Reverse-Vienna Gambit, cuz this is kinda like the Vienna, but this is 'poopy buns.' All this move does is lose a pawn. You can't play the Reverse Vienna; that's not how chess works." A year later he makes a video over this exact gambit.

    I simply love the fact that we have additional video evidence of Gotham growing as a person. Love all of your vids, GC. (I also just happened to be watching older GTE videos (favorite series on YT, indeed) and recognized the structure of the gambit, having recently watched this video not too long ago.)

  8. Aaahh when you’ve been studying games so you see this as the evergreen partie 🙂

  9. I may be a bit late on this one, but I felt I should put this out there. I played against this in a recent game, and after I accepted the gambit, I played Nd4, and taking (which my opponent did) is a blunder and gives white a +2.5 advantage after Qh4+. Just keep in mind that if they play Nd4, don't take it, play normal chess.

  10. hey gotham in game 2 at 19:52 why couldn't he block with the bishop? (bishop to e3), which is guarded by the rook so queen cant take, so no mate.

  11. I never got the monty hall thing. And probably has to do with this… if you flip a coin its 50/50 because you are talking about the chances of it being heads or tails. With Monty Hall you have 3 doors, so your chances are 33% each. Once one door is gone you have 2 doors to choose from so it’s 50% each. Why would you ever assign the 33% to a random door that is left?

  12. Can you elaborate on the "it's GG" when you have the d5 fork on knight and bishop please? If bishop takes pawn, where do we go?

  13. 7:00 but what about C4-C3, defending the pawn against the horse?

  14. In the exchange variation Nd4 cannot be taken because Qh5+ wins

  15. Yesterday I was experimenting my opening to try the vienna but from the black side, coz vienna suits me, and now I see this video, and i didn't knew this was a thing….

  16. John 3:16

    16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

  17. Beat hikaru and mangnus 2 times, and I'll believe it

  18. I once sacrificed the ROOK!!!!! To win a chess match.

  19. Thanks for putting out all those videos, Levy. But if you manage to win a game because you rehearsed a tricky opening, should that really be considered "learning chess"? Keep creating video's for beginners and intermediate players, but show us some robust strategies too.

  20. This guy is the reason why I'm 1k ratings right now

  21. This is the most honest thing I've ever heard "Ladies and Gentleman, chess is hard."

  22. This video is a perfect example why (Levy) you're a bad chess teacher. Like most if not all of your instructional videos are, it's a method of just memorization of moves, (if a then b) and not a positional analysis or an ability of positional understanding in any game. Your "students" (LOL) will improve from 800, but never get any better than (maybe) 1500-1600 with your teaching non sense method, and why what Hikaru said about you is so true… "Players like Levy, (you and others YT chess channels) will never win anything." You're an entertainer, NOT a chess teacher. Stop deluding yourself and your viewership. Teach people the understanding of position evaluation, not move aping. You're teaching people how to beat up on 800 – 1200 chess players. You're a chess carpet bagger, selling an elixir of false chess promises.

    Those who can- do… those who can't- fail in life and become self-proclaimed YouTube experts.

    BTW… You're the actual troll, with your videos Levy! You've been trolling your viewership for a few years now! Congrats though on your success, but based in teaching meaningless result-driven mediocrity, as opposed to greater chess understanding superiority.

  23. What happens if after pawn takes E4, kn x E4, pawn D5 then kn x E5 leaving an opening for the queen. Will that create enough counter play or is there an easy refutation that I’m not seeing? Thank you!

  24. Me who's been playing this Gambit for months before I saw this video and losing 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 .

  25. Tricks are really the hey to chess. I'm an idiot so maybe don't trust that…

  26. Horrible advice. My opponent played his c3 knight instead of the rook and then d4 with pawn and this video was useless

  27. You could kinda play fried liver against it

  28. after watching this i am confident that i can take on magnus

  29. I like it when he uses the word "CRUSH".

    Because chess is one of the most brutal game in the world.

  30. As black, what you need to know is that if white take the gambit, then after 4. e*f5 e5 there's 5. Nd4! sac the knight. This is the top engine move as well as a trap. If 5. … N*d4? there's 6. Qh5+! which will eventually win a rook or the knight back, and deprive black's castle right. The correct move for black is 5. … Nf6 defend the queen check right away and wait for white to trade the knight
