  1. I’m 4 min in the video why not Qa5 check, he guards then we recapture pawn

  2. This video pop up in my notification the moment i closed youtube. How can I resist.

  3. If you guys don’t start all your games with a4 you guys are cowards smh

  4. You made me way better at chess thanks for that

  5. The fact that there are less advertisers to bid on YouTube but this guy is still uploading is just awesome

  6. Subscribe to agadmators chess channel

  7. Awesome video. If possible, could you analyze some blitz games.

  8. That's a great system for black, 2…e6 especially if you aim for the Nimzo, but if they go for an anti – Nimzo, you go for the Blumenfeld.

  9. good shit on the 420k subs my guy CiGrip thats really cool

  10. This guy deserves more subs I watched his older youtube videos like the queen’s gambit etc they’re really helpful strategies! Keep up the good work! 😀

  11. Nice mention of the fact that black should not play d5 so early.
    I think white has an attacking option of playing g3, then Bishop to h3 attacking the e6 pawn.
    By delaying d5, white may not have this option.

  12. At 8:51, what is wrong with the move bishop to d2? I can understand black is better still, but saying they can't recapture because of the fork?

  13. I like your simple and direct approach.. good teacher!

  14. Can you please make videos on ongoing online nations tournament

  15. I played it couple of times and didn't even know it has name

  16. Dang, you're still uploading consistently. I remember watching your vids over 10 years ago, back before the STL Chess Club, Chess.com, Chess24, ChessBrah, etc were ever on YT, it was just you and JrobiChess (who left many years ago). Crazy that you're still doing this.

  17. I thought the Blumenfeld was basically all but refuted a few years ago with that e4 pawn sac line?

  18. What chess application are you using for the tutorial?

  19. I don't care what anyone says…you sir, are the single most professional chess commentator on youtube, even if you're not everyone's favourite, it's irreputable.. Just by watching your videos I'm increasing my ranks in the hundreds in last few days (starting with 980 rating on chess.com, currently on 1.4k rating with 78.8%winrate O.o…now…I am sure that percentage will fall, and I'll maybe hit a wall at some point, but I feel amazing understanding so much of the game that I always loved, but never truly mastered. Thanks Kevin, keep it up!

  20. I like this a lot, can choose between going bogo-indian or lashing out with this agressive blumenfeld!

  21. Here because of the movie “the coldest game”!🙌😎

  22. Hello, isthe Blumenfeld Gambit the same as Modern Benoni?
