  1. I'm vegetarian I'll still play this

  2. I think you are a good at chess and a good human being as well i love you bfore but from this video i gonna hate you i am from nepal and As I am hindu we never eat beef so stopp these kind of fucking name on ur video otherwise i am gonna unsascriv you

  3. Is it just me or does his voice sound like it have autotune sometimes

  4. Unfortunately, i cant play this opening because beef is banned in my country ':(

  5. Gotham exposing every single one of my less popular preps

  6. Levy, could you cover that other Dzindzi-Indian Defense, the one that starts with 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 a6 ?

  7. i love king indian and just learned the dutch defense and this is the perfect video for me

  8. I play better opening when I don't watch video like this. Usually the opponent doesn't goof over for the sake of the opening

  9. If you're a vegetarian can you still play the beefeater?

  10. This is just the Dzindzi Indian, yeah?

  11. 0:43
    Gotham: The beef eater can become a thing with these moves.
    Me, a 900 rated player: So…essentially never.

  12. Demetrius Demarcus Bartholomew James III Jr. says:

    Regards from Bangladesh

  13. Maria Vitória Nascimento de Oiveira says:

    For the first time in his life Levy is telling us to an passant

  14. Can you please make a Video on most of the variations of the pterodactyl defense "for Black and for White?"

  15. This is like a nimzoindian but from a fianchettoed bishop

  16. I wish there is a opening called the "beefender"

  17. Levy:"*Teaches the Beef Eater Opening*"
    Sad vegan noises

  18. is it possible to combine the Beef Eater w Sicilian ?

  19. Can you play this against the fried liver attack?

  20. Literally no one I play in the 800-1100 range defends the pawn with the queen. Everyone always defends with the bishop. 🙁

  21. Gotham, can I just say, you're an absolute legend.

  22. Levy: this move confuses me
    His opponent: I love you dad
    Levy: my opponent is confused

  23. After the knight takes pawn on h5, there is a trap for white by sacking the rook, and taking back with the queen which leads to forced mate in 6. What black should do is to move the room over to g8 and take back with the h pawn should white take on g7.

  24. I know it is only a brief overview but the truth about the Dzindzi-Indian main line is: 4.d5 Bxc3+ 5.bxc3 f5 6.e4! fxe4 7.f3 e5 and now neither 8.fxe4? nor 8.dxe6?, but 8.Qc2 or 8.Nh3 and Black unfortunately has problems! 7. …Qa5 is not a valid variation, 7. …d6 might be, but again things are not easy.

  25. I don't know why, even though this is 2 years ago, Levy seemed weaker here.

  26. As an Indian i will play it against a pakistani player to distract him.

  27. Disclaimer: vegetarians should left the video
