  1. Blk b7x. Wht c6.This is the simpliest and most logical take for blk. Why didn't you make blk exchange this pawn for pawn on blk move?

  2. We played on a match MX vs USA. Did you remember? I lost both games

  3. If nimzowitsch is a black defense, why is the board not the correct perspective?

  4. There should be competitions where people try to win as many theoretically-winning openings as possible, against the worlds strongest chess engines. The opening in this video being a prime candidate. The competition could feature multiple variations of the same opening.
