  1. Could you cover the scotch gambit? It would be amazing as your videos are less than a minute and very educative

  2. Yeah but that is also a very risky opening for black. Once I've mated a guy who just recently started to play the dutch in just 5 moves. There's also a possibility to mate black in 8. I wouldn't recommend to play the dutch if you are new to chess.

  3. Dutch defense is good b😂cause relatively rare. In reply to d4, I usually play e6 (to avoid the Staunton Gambit & other offbeat tricky lines) which allows transposition to the French (which I also like).
