  1. I've tried to play the first one dozens of times. It NEVER comes up

  2. NELSON LOPEZ is above the rest!! 10 out of 10 or a perfect 10!! Idea, presentation, clearness etc… all the best!! So deserves a HUGE THANK YOU!!!

  3. 12:28 shouldn'tn't pawn to f3 be the best move for Black!? It's the most common I bet

  4. Love your videos. Why have you been away from OTB for so long ?

  5. When you realise: your opponent has probably watched this already.

  6. I like the content I really do, but i dont honestly see someone protect a pawn with a bishop for so long at 12:51. I think the most reasonable response would be for bishop to move out of c8 and move to e6. it provides an attack on your queen while being protected by a pawn, they are either forced to move queen or trade the queens and make the game last longer.

  7. 18:19 he can actually go on one of those squares G4 as when you take it with your queen he has his bishop backing it so it would be a big sacrifice…

  8. Why you in my recommendation bro i dont even play chess
    This if goofy ahhhhhhhh

  9. i think the elephant gambit's worth a try but the second one… can't white's knight be captured on d6 by the bishop?

  10. In fried liver there's a nice counter play for black: When white plays Ng5, black responds with Bc5

  11. dude right before this vid i cot an ad about a guy named john chess (inventor of chess (not reallt i dont think)and our new stepdad)

  12. 5:44 Black can just capture the bishop with a pawn after white moves the knight, making the whole gambit useless

  13. Gambit 2, 05:20 black queen could easily get the pawn on B2 and if knight moves; she could easily get 2 pawns for free or the knight & if the knight didn't move; of course you will get the rook on A1 & move to F7 or F6 yet you have many other moves to play.

  14. Guys, who can explain, which chess base using here?

  15. In gambit 5, a simple pawn H6 kicks out the bishop, which if bishop backdown, can be followed by G5

  16. What happends in elephant gambit if white pon g2 moved to g3?

  17. I dont understand why at 9:55 the white dont make a fork with his knight ans finally Taken thé Queen

  18. I don't recommend fried liver attact because of taxler

  19. Anyone who wastes 4 moves chasing an Alekhine’s Knight is cringe as hell

  20. You teached me alot, you are a great person, we are lucky to watch you.

  21. 8:05 Sacrificing a Knight to keep Black’s King at the center isn’t ‘solid’, but ok…

  22. yo the second game after this video I WON WITH THE LANDAU !!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO

  23. Gambit 2 :
    You have to know this focus
    Here's the move it starts with
    They know
    But just the first part
    It's tricky but it's ok
    If you stick with me
    She slides
    Takes the b
    Cha ku cha
    Take the b
    But she can't take the d
    Forgot to watch the thing

  24. 2:05 what if white had used bishop instead of knight, to capture the pawn and also check?

  25. Gambit 5: don't take the pawn… Kick the bishop away with a pawn

  26. Just wanna let you know nasty triple fork for white 9:54 with the knight on g6

  27. Just to point out that in the 7th Gambit near the start of it the knight on F6 can move to G4 as it is protected by the light squared bishop thus making the queens defence useless.


  29. Thank you!
    I used the Fried Liver Attack and my enemy didn't know how to respond so I got a mate in 9!

  30. For the 7th one, I learned the Caro-Kann from Levy, and a rule of thumb of his is to take the e pawn on the third move if black’s d pawn can take it, so the 7th gambit won’t be that efficient against Gotham fans

  31. Gambit 1 you just take with the bishop and check the king, and black has nothing

  32. Knight can defend against queen in gambit 6 when queen moves into play against the pawn to pin with queen defense?? Why would black play a pawn or even the queen? Knight is the best outcome

  33. 5:58 Black can easily take with the bishop the knight! Bxe6

  34. 9:56 the knight can actually fork the queen and the king in that position

  35. 09:52 There are not even any threats (just a triple queen-rook-king fork, no biggie)
