  1. I think you are good, hate the money decoration, it takes away from the teaching experience, you make money from this just get to love it

  2. For all spanisch players: Only play d3 or knight c3 everything else is just bad. and if u play knight c3 dont take the knight on f6 unless provoked. and if u play d3 dont play knight c3 before csstling and abuse the white squares with bishop c4 if black plays d6 and just dont play passiv. then your fine. Levy just handpicked the bad moves for white bc they are intuitive mistakes. Also knight c3 is the best move as long as you dont make the blunder of taking the knight on f6 and the one i would recommend just be carefull if back plays a quick d5 it gets very tactical and complicated.

  3. After about 50 games, I haven't been able to play this once. No one attacked my knight since it doesn't pin it. The most common move I've faced is Rook C4 and playing the gambit from that position has not worked out well for me so far.

  4. A bit of a rookie here but does anyone have insight as to why he didn’t have the Greek gift in the second game? I didn’t see any obstacles preventing it

  5. Carl Jaenisch died in 1872, so this idea has been around for a very long time, and one must wonder why it isn't so popular at the GM level.

  6. Great video! BUT stilll not giving up Sicilian…..

  7. What if they don't play that horse after your respond with initial pond at start? Or if they do go horse, and you respond with your horse, but they don't play that bishop? Is there a good continuation for black?

  8. Didn't take the pawn or the knight, instead played their own knight to c3

  9. Sorry, but can someone tell me why he doesn't have a Greek Gift? That was a perfect position for a greek gift sacrifice.

  10. I stumbled across this video many many months later so I shall watch both videos

  11. This line is exactly like the Rosseau Gambit 🤝

  12. How to defeat anarchy chess in a video

  13. ah, yes, a video showcasing a gambit against "radnom noob"

  14. Seems very similar to king's gambit with reverse colors. Would it be possible to achieve a triple Muzio with black?

  15. it looks like Latvian gambit but with Knight on c6

  16. This vdo is not for me bcs I never play e5 against e4

  17. Bro i love you but who makes your thumbnails😳

  18. 19:48 you do had a greek gift in that position, you were completely winning

  19. I’ll crush your e4 with this black gambit 😩

  20. I play consistently with around 40% accuracy, so I'm expecting this gambit to work every time.

  21. imagine being Rnadom noob not even random noob

  22. As a 2200, I’ve always been looking for an aggressive move against the Ruy Lopez! Thank you Levy!

  23. why is there so many traps and daring openings in the Italian game?

  24. it can cone Nd4 at te very beging
    knight sacrifise
    then qh5+

  25. Looking at the lichess data base, black wins more than white whatever white does

  26. The problem with going for this gambit is that if they don't enter the ruy lopez you're stuck responding to the giucco or whatever other bullshit they want. I will always prefer responses to e4 that prevent your opponent from entering their preferred line. A more accurate title would be "crush the ruy lopez with this black gambit".

  27. its looks allll sooo easy 😀
    but some times my head is empty 🙁

  28. one common thing that might happen that wasn't covered: what if after they take the pawn and you play e4 attacking the knight they take the other knight with the bishop? (and after you take they move the knight to e5)

  29. White is so bad he couldn't even spell "Random noob"

  30. for anyone trying not to play 4.d3 and playing to a drawn endgame, play 4.Nc3, its much more challenging and sharp to black which they can easily slip up if they make one wrong move and you'll win
