It’s spooky, it’s effective, it’s algorithmically opportune. The Halloween gambit is a chess opening that even the most mundane player will find exciting and refreshing.

  23. Really great video. It's my favorite opening as white even if the engine says it's not that good.

  24. Holly dhit this is the best chess channel I swear 😀

  25. WHY WOULD YOU ATTACK LEVI LIKE THAT? He's a good noodle.

  26. Im pretty sure I did this while drunk up to the halfway point

  27. I wanna sneak my way into a chess tournament and then lose to a 12yr old and accuse them of using a weighted king as if having a heavier chess piece affected the game

  28. I have an idea for a sacrificial line in the Halloween gambit

    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nxe5 Nxe5, the Halloween gambit. then d4, attacking the knight, Ng6, knight retreats. You play e5, attacking the other knight, and if they play Qe7, thinking they have pinned the attacking pawn to the king, you could simply block with Be2. Ng8, the knight escapes the attack,
    O-O d6, challenging the pawn. Re1 dxe5 dxe5. Now here you traded pawns, but the e5 pawn is hanging. Most would play Qxe5, a blunder for we can reply with Bf4!! A brilliant sacrifice of the bishop. If they take with the queen, we go Bb5 checkmate. If they take with the knight, we still move our bishop to Bb5 check, a discovered attack, the bishop attacks the king and the rook attacks the queen. You would end up winning a queen for a bishop!

  29. What happens if instead of retreating the knight after D4, they push it to G4 where it's protected?

  30. How is it everyone in 900 always knows all the counter lines?

  31. S tier gambit. Worked against my brother who is into chess. Very fun!

  32. Pawn d4, Knight f
    Three, why do I keep losing
    To this, constantly?

  33. They never talk about what if the opponent refuses to take the knight I guess noone wants to decline a free piece

  34. ishowchildporntomykidsandmadethemaddicted This video has changed my life. My whole outlook on everything that exists in this world, in fact even in the entire universe. I can never look at anything I know the same way ever again. This video represents emotions most humans could never comprehend. But I can. Thanks to this video I have been awakened to many things previously thought unimaginable. Thank you.
