  2. lol that computer engine joke was top notch well done XD

  3. I'm always playing in my nighshifts about 20 games… nobody plays it.

  4. "thats the move a computer would never play… and if you ask it to, it would cut its electrical core off, it would download a virus and suicide, but it would never play Bc8…" XD lmao! XD

  5. Open question 🤔.
    I play online chess everyday. One of the cheep and cheerful downloads from "playstore" (apparently very popular some of you may know it).
    Love the game. Am in the active "learning the game stage". Have begun to purchase chess books etc.
    Question. What's with all the players who when they start to lose – just stop and let the time run out???
    That and the ones who say in the chat "play fast".
    Is this a cultural 🤔 face saving thing??
    Ps….when I am going to lose 🙃 I say "well played".

  6. Mr Smirnov did you grow up in an English speaking country?? America?? Just curious

  7. Where can i find the video where black played Qg4 ?????

  8. I always open with e4 whenever I'm playing White but it's good to know how to defend this aggressive opening.👍

  9. can you show us some opening traps in the King's gambit

  10. шахматные уроки давид грин says:

    Can you make a video for positional play для позиционой игрой

  11. Vicious trap, taking the white Queen hard to resist.

  12. Thanks master Igor you're one if not the best chess channel on this platform!

  13. Thankyou For this opening .
    Just winning all the games with this

  14. what if the blacks knight does not take on c3 and retreats to cover his bishop which threatens the pawn ?

  15. Here's a line that forces black to lose their queen by force in 9 moves. I've been getting this more and more often…lots of fun 🙂 1.
    d4 d5 2. e4 dxe4 3. Nc3 Bf5 4. f3 exf3 5. Qxf3 Bxc2 6. Qxb7 Nd7 7. Nb5 Rb8 8. Nxc7+ Qxc7 9. Qxc7 { Black resigns. } 1-0

  16. I watched a lot of your videos, and in most of them the cat in the background was not moving at all. So after some time I thought about that it is only a ceramic figure or something. But in this video your cat finally moves, I was so shocked XD Anyway…. I watch a lot of chess streamers including hikaru, eric rosen, gotham, botez, NM Ramirez and many others but your chess videos are the most helpful and always short enough so you can stay focussed and really learn a lot! Big thanks!

  17. The chess game I am playing you have to beat levels to unlock master and grandmaster and stuff I am now at grandmaster stage. That said in this case the computer on this level would sacrifice the bishop and develop based off it.

  18. And i have an idea ,if thisdidnt worked than you can sacrifoce yoir queen and then the game is yours

  19. I couldn't focus – my eyes were on the cat.

  20. these gambits are fucking pointless. As an experiment, I tried this 30 times in a row (resigning when the opposite player didn't play the conventional move) and i never got further than 3 moves at the 900 level.

  21. the most agressive attack is the cat that is adorable at the back distracting me ✌️😁😁

  22. Lol I tried this about 10 times and so far not one person took the gambit. Then found this video on what to do if they don’t take, I mean great video but there is just way to much that can go different.

  23. Lol wait he took took the first gambit. ????? You said refuse the gambit but you started off that part and he already took the first gambit.

  24. I tried it against an AI and they would not go with the moves you would expect as the variables are high. In short it won't work.
