  1. crush the Albin in 6 moves: The Queen’s Gambit

  2. Ive been playing chess for a few months and im currently 1102 rated but i have beaten people 1400 rated and its all cause of your lessons thanks Gotham

  3. I played chess with my girl she played the kitchen opening so i did the sandwich gambit but she declined the gambit so i force mated her

  4. Next video : how to crush the albin counteegambit

  5. lolol just beat a 1400 in rapid with this, got the pawn to promote all the way to a knight 😂😂😂

  6. bro i win with the exact same moves, i got the perfect world game xD

  7. Super Blunder on 6:50 min White will smash you after Bc6 !!!

  8. (As black) can I ask what to do when the opponent takes the d5 pawn instead of the e5 at the beginning?

  9. I play the Queens gambit alot so I figured I should know something about the albin, your mona Lisa of chess video is awesome ! Tactics on steroids

  10. Hey the beginning. Rook probably hanging in the g1 square not f1. How the heck the queen from black will take that rook?

  11. Please make new video about Ponziani opening advanced!

  12. Nobody takes this gambit. Happened one time to me and that's it

  13. What if they don’t take bishop at the start

  14. Old name: Albin counter gambit! New name: Anti-queen-gambit

  15. Gotham, instead of taking the pawn at the start why move the bishop e3 the computer its a best move ever like the Albin 1:04.53 something like that but if i move the bishop to e3 it says 2:43.65 can you tell me

  16. Been playing chess for 3 months still stuck on 1000 elo ty gotham ypu inspired me yo continue

  17. Ok. But when do I surface the Ohio-class Nuclear Submarine?

  18. I wish now i learned more about this in chess club.. this game is real

  19. Ah, the Albin Countergambit; named after the famous chess player Dave Countergambit.

  20. Hi levy, can i know is it possible to play albin counter gambit if the opponent starts with E4?

  21. 6:50 After Be7, white can follow up with Bc6 and it's +7,5 for white

  22. I fucking HATE when people use the queens gambit on me I’m going to watch every video on this annoying fucking opening until nobody can beat me on it

  23. Question for you: So, I was in the middle of a game that started off with an English that transposed into a Queen’s Gambit Declined, and my defense transposed to an Albin except that all four knights were on the board. This blew up horribly in my face haha. Is it possible to play an Albin Counter Gambit against an English, or is that not the best strategy to employ?

  24. Levy what to play in the double gambit if white plays b4 (kicking the bishop) after bishop c5? Retreating the bishop to b6 ill lead to b5 and then the knight is kicked. You can give a check with Ba5 but this is easily blocked with Kd2 or Bd2.

  25. The second pawn isn't gambiting "yet an other pawn". It just that you exhange a perfectly good pawn for a really weak pawn that you might or might not win back.

    One of the drawbacks is that it white no longer needs to protect the weak pawn on e5 (and can more freely move about with his knight, opening up the diagonal against your king).

  26. I feel like Levy could pull off a pretty convincing Christopher Walken impression if he tried

  27. I recently joined chess started at rating 500 then I found Gotham now I'm 1800 rating

  28. rainz is a fucking idiot and the epitome of all the people who dont bother to think.

  29. funny thing is, I play the queen's gambit all the time, and I don't know how to use it, accepted or declined. Most people at my level don't know how to deal with it and I get some advantage in it. If someone played this on me I think I'd triple the gambit with some other pawn hanging and see how completely dumb the game would be

  30. My opponent said I'm not allowed to reference this video during the match.

  31. Don't forget to use the ballistic missile submarine in this countergambit. Thank you.

  32. At 6:53 after Be7, when Levy plays Nf3 for white, can't white play Bc6 instead trapping the queen?

    If knight captures, the pawn comes and sits there in a deadly position

  33. Do you think he ever looks at the comments?
