  1. if it were queen gambit with that same thumbnail that would be a big boo boo

  2. It is worth noting that that's all she wrote.

  3. Wow one of the best chess players ever teaching you openings! I'll still be 800 but this is awesome

  4. Where is the merch! I want a hoodie that says “it’s worth noting”

  5. Thank you for recording this even though you had to restart it!

  6. hikaru must be tired of playing this "yawn" :)))

  7. So the sound fiinally caught up with Hikaru's upload speed

  8. Hey Hikaru, why can't I just take the pawn on c6 straightaway after he pushed it. Looks like a free pawn to me

  9. Why did it change from back rank to ice skater

  10. Hikaru is a great teacher. This is truly amazing. He's calm, but energetic. Thank you!

  11. What’s the reason for the back rank name change?

  12. I was so confused when I tried to watch the first video. Thought my audio was busted, and then the video just disappeared.

  13. Now it’s worth noting that I found the video very enjoyable👍🏼

  14. hey can you do one of these on the modern defense?

  15. I’m a beginner and can barely match up with Martin bot, but I’ll get there! Thank you for teaching us the way!!!!

  16. Thank you Hikaru. So glad to see all your successes due to your hard work and commitment. I been your fan since 2010 (unrated) and now that I am 1800+, I certainly apprexiate what you do for fans like me a lot more.

  17. Stop teaching people my opening I want to surprise them

  18. Enjoyed this video a lot! I'd love to see a video on the nimzoindian and bogoindian in the future

  19. Always wondered why kings gambit and other openings fell out of favor, would be cool to see analysis of games that refuted the old openings and how stockfish would react to those refutations now

  20. Thanks Hikaru I hope to get stronger watching your strategy!

  21. I LOVE how sarcastic and condicending the intro is 😂


  22. Finally the video that I always wanted. Im preparing for my first ever tournament and think I will try this. Im pianist and composer, but also self taught chess amateur. You really gave me a lot in terms of chess understanding and simple good energy and humor. Thank you Hikaru your content is simply amazing!! Greetings and tons of love from Poland! ❤️

  23. My favourite gambit opening is the king's gambit accepted variation

  24. The difference between Hikaru pi$$ed off during tournaments and the Happy go Lucky rainbows and sunshine YT Hikaru is… Well… Odd 😅
    Nonetheless thank you for the content and the entertainment that you provide.

  25. I’m a big fan

    But this new format doesn’t really work. It’s about past games and openings

    I’d rather hear you comment on while playing speed, chess,and so on. Also, reviewing games from top recent tournaments

  26. Play the Drag Queen's Gambit! The Drag Queen's Gambit is all about going after the little undeveloped minors/kid pieces….I mean pawns. You then recruit and turn the pawn against it's Daddy and Mommy – aka the King and Queen. There is another gambling involving the horses called the "Mr Hands Gambit". Read the wikipedia page on the horse Mr Hands to see the true face behind the Drag Queen's Gambit.

  27. Love your shirt, where did you get it from ?

  28. Who better to learn openings from than a top10 ranked GM

  29. This is fantastic. Thank you very much for this explanation of this opening

  30. Hikaru in the first 30 seconds:
    "WELCOME BACK guys let's learn the king's gambit! :D"

    Hikaru literally in any other situation:
    "here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here."

  31. Thank You sir for sharing This kind of videos. Now we can learn chess from you.

  32. I am one of those folks who has been clamoring for content on openings, and so this is me clamoring my gratitude – THANK YOU, HIKARU!

  33. Maybe its just my monitor settings but Hikaru's shirt is so bright for me it makes him look like some holy angel. He just needs some glowing halo to finish off the look (maybe a glowing pineapple or bong)
