  1. What if they didn't castle or castle on the other side?

  2. What happens when black plays kf6 before before bb4

  3. What happens if they take the knight on c3 with the bishop

  4. Black Queen save from all problem…

  5. Call it the 4 horsemen of the kings apocalypse

  6. Horrible opening losing three pawns immediately is not a solid strategy I've never seen a GM play an opening like that

  7. What do you do if black doesn’t take pawn d4 at the start?

  8. Igor you are a gift to the new generation of chess players. This content is so valuable and for you to pump out amazing videos for free is so honorable. Thank you sir .

  9. Finally beat the 1200 Bot after tying for days. Thank you so much!

  10. What if the enemy plays after checking with bishop and me defending with knight, queen f6 and not the knight f6

  11. Hey man only started playing chess again recently, thanks for the videos mate appreciate it. We’ll spoken well explained 👍

  12. What if black captures the pawn with the knight at d4?

  13. "put a grimace of horror on your opponents face" 😂 wonderful channel you have. Thank you!

  14. Computer got the 4th move right once…and then they kept going b5. Wouldn't fall for it on level 4/8. No Bb4.

  15. I have Questions:
    1. Is is still called Danish Gambit?
    2. What will I do if my opponent play different moves?

  16. after knight does bad move of knight e4 and then we do bishop d3, what do I do if he goes knight c5?

  17. This is helpful, somewhat…., but at 1:26, after Nf6, white can play Bf7, followed by Qb3. Isn't this line more successful? I always play like this to whoever bites and take my d and c pawns.
    This is what I was looking for – /watch?v=Nd7ZiSvdwN8&t=1560s. This person covers everything. A bit of surprised that you were satisfied with just a line, but that's ok. Now I can study more what's left of it.

  18. You can use these opening every year, not just 2023 btw

  19. your tactics shit not working even on 900

  20. At 3:35 what is stopping black from moving their night onto a5 to put pressure on white's bishop?

  21. What do you do if the black knight (E4) goes to (C5) threatening the white bishop?

  22. just won my first game using this he didn't quite follow the opening but he ended up blundering a rook during the endgame and resigned

  23. 2:40 what's a good response if the opponent goes queen f6 instead of knight??

  24. Thank you, your videos are truly amazing, i am going on a tournament today and i plan on using this opening.

  25. What if black moves his queen to f6 instead of the knight before the castling ? 2:47

  26. 7:24 What if black plays bishop to B4? I think you just lose a rook, unless I missed something?

  27. 4:45 what if the opponent takes with the queen and not with the pawn?

  28. I'm not a very good chess player, so maybe theres an obvious awnser to my question, but why would black castle king side, if I was black I would be worried about the bishops and try to castle queen side instead. If anyone has the awnser it would be greatly appreciated

  29. Efficient RVer (formerly Hybrid Life) says:

    I've been playing the Goring Gambit regularly for 50 years. It is my favorite opening as white. The position you show at 7:45 happens at least as often as them taking the second gambit pawn, ,if you consider their last move e6 as being equivalent to h6. I treat them interchangeably, for two reasons. First, the line I respond to it with, O-O, almost always causes them to do the other move, transposing and making it not matter which move order they choose. O-O and Qb3 are extremely similar in strength in the "grandmaster or engine" sense, but Qb3 alerts the opponent to danger more quickly. If in the position you show, my O-O provokes h6, and in fact for most other responses, I play Re1, to delay Qb3 one more move. It leads to many fewer lines I need to know, and that 3-move combo is as strong as anything coming out of lines from playing Qb3 immediately. Different opponents may grab the second pawn at any point along the way, and when they don't, you at some point need to take it. While there are specific cases where taking it with the queen is good, playing my move order (O-O Re1 Qb3) happens to prevent me from taking it with the queen in situations where it should be taken with the knight. The older I get, the fewer tricky things I have to remember, the better.

    It is rare to find someone who plays very precisely against the Goring Gambit, and I actually enjoy it when they do. More commonly, they fall into traps in predictable ways. In just my last 6 online games as white, I've had mates on move 10 and move 7 using the Goring against opponents my strength (1300s). That's unusually fast. One had fallen into a terrible trap, found the key move to escape it, then blundered by not making the followup move that was the only reason to have made the key move. He missed seeing that it was mate in one, versus escaping the trap down a little material but setting a trap I've fallen into myself one time, never again.

    It's a fun, beautiful opening. If you play it often, you'll find recurring themes in your games, showing you what the possible "great moves" and "brilliant moves" in similar but different situations tend to look like.

    Since watching your video on the Rousseau Gambit as black, that has become my most commonly played opening as black after white plays e4. I'm surprised at how many people play the Italian as white, and how many are taken by surprise with the Rousseau. Now if I can just stop opponents from playing d4, I'll be happy, though I do well against it.

  30. I tried the same and opponent didn't castle 😑😑😑lost couple of prawns

  31. What happens if your opponent takes your knight with dark bishop*?

  32. Why can’t he move the night to a5 attacking the bishop instead of going to e7?
