  1. if they dont take, go kings gambit route

  2. I’m danish so that’s another reason I should learn this

  3. I cant find the Horwitz defence anywhere. Apparently it is a variant within the Danish gambit. I had a perfect game today with 100% accuracy and the engine came up with Horwitz defence. I played purely on auto pilot. Lines just opened up everywhere. Unfortunately my opponent blundered away his knight or it would have been a really interesting game. Almost all his pieces were either trapped or immobilized.

  4. Bro wtf is that white sauce 💀💀💀😏

  7. I want this kind of videos from him

  8. Watching this to learn how to counter cause everyone and their mom is playing this at the 1800 range in bullet

  9. You and your options. Get to the point. Don't waste our time.

  10. Does Levy love his open positions or is it just my impression from this video?
    I don't really see anything wrong to pivoting from an open position strategy to a closed one, by advancing the pawns etc

  11. The only way I’ve ever lost to 1000-1500 elo opponents with danish gambit accepted is by massive, stupid blundering. Just look at this board at 5:01. It’s a can’t lose position if you don’t blunder. It really is. And even danish gambit declined is difficult for me to lose unless I blunder big time, because as we can see here at 2:50 and 3:40 White has an enormous developmental advantage playing 2 completely different ways. It’s a little bit insane.

  12. I am actually danish and watching this

  13. I sacced my king to get easier opponents

  14. I started playing this and now I'm 1350 elo 💀

  15. Can u plzzzz do a video about the Halloween gambit

  16. bro really explain how to transpose to scot gambit

  17. This chess defense make me back to play chess❤

  18. can anyone walk me through a tutorial on how to use the copy paste thing? I only see like import a file and not copy paste lines

  19. Literally no one will take that pawn I tried playing this like 20 times

  20. Hey Gotham can you make a video on the milner Barry gambit?

  21. I am a london player (850… I know) But when I encounter the Englund gambit, I throw this, because no Cheeser that shows the Englund cover what to answer to 2e4.

  22. I always play the Danish Gambit when I play the chess variant "Peace Chess", aka "Pako Sako".

  23. ur opponent is 1312 ah yes a man of culture

  24. Blackagar Gambit PLEASE!!!!🐸👍

  25. Black Knight G6 Destroys most of the game plan

  26. This is Soo good for blitz🔥🔥

  27. This is a typical bad video by Lev where he spends most of the time talking about exotic scenarios and finally the main line at the end. Better chess videos describe the main line first, ensuring an understanding of the basics, before moving onto exotic weirdness.

  28. I love how Scandinavian games are. Just like a viking raid

  29. Can you please make a video about the King's Gambit?

  30. My opponent played this against me and I won a full rook

  31. Wow, 30 minutes of Levy talking about the Danish Gambit, I feel bad for watching this for free this is amazing.
