  1. oh no, my definition!
    sacrificing quality with the potato cam gambit i see

  2. Popmilan really went demonmode this tournament, jesus

  3. man, no part of that went how i expected. 😅

  4. Black has nothing for the pawn after 5. e5 and then 6. d4

    It's that simple.

  5. I was hoping for game after game of you doing 'em dirty with your bag of tricks. To avoid spoilers I won't say whether I got what I came for, but it was a great video either way!

  6. Whi doesnt anyone ever play with white?

    5. e4… 6. d5

  7. Eric practically invents the Stafford and still gets schooled by others.

  8. From the description, it seems like it may be STAFFORD GAMBIT TIME?

  9. Can't tell you how many opponents I've annihilated playing the SG against me. Eric prepared me well.

  10. ER seriously has to be the best loser in chess. Maybe the best winner, too.

  11. "The good thing about being up a pawn is if you lose a pawn then it's equal"
    -Wise Words of Eric Rosen 2023

  12. Have you seen infinite chess by naviary it's very recent

  13. Eric Rosen has won quote of the year, we can all stop trying.

    "This is my bowling ball, these are the pins. I'm not stopping. I feel like a powerful hurricane."

    It really doesn't get any better than this. The only thing that comes close to Eric Rosen Stafford content is Johnathan Schrantz content showing all the insanely dubious gambits he somehow wins with. 😂

  14. Oh Yes! It is full stream of Eric Rosen playing Stafford! Thank you 😊

  15. "Wait this endgame is just worse for me I'm down a pawn. Ooops."

    He's just like me fr.

  16. Once again I enjoy how every chapter in this video is called "STAFFORD GAMBIT TIME".

  17. I range 1300-1500 Lichess Blitz/Bullet. I just checked my stats and I win 58% of my Stafford games as black. Not bad for a patzer in an opening that is +2.4 for white!

  18. Hi Eric, thank you for a tournament and those interesting games, it was very funny playing Stafford gambit! Greetings from Popmilan95 🙂

  19. "Corporate needs you to find the difference between this picture and this picture"
    *Eric playing in a Stafford Gambit only tournament
    *Eric playing in a normal tournament
    "They're the same picture"

  20. I don't recall ever seeing you play the f3 refutation as white until this stream. That was fun to watch.

  21. Why didn’t you play Kg5 after opponent plays b6 at 45:45 ? By attacking the rook with the night it traps the rook if I’m correct. Im 700 elo so there is a possibility that I missed something😂

  22. that was fun to watch live on twitch.~! always exciting. thank you for sharing♟♥ IMRosen we believe. black wins 51 %

  23. As someone who almost never plays the stafford, joining the tournament to play and actually winning a fair amt of my games was rly fun! (even if I didnt get to play Eric)
    Proud to say I got as high as 4th place 😀

  24. That second game was absolutely insane

  25. That last game was pure Eric Rosen never give up energy! Loved it

  26. That FM was suss as with those move times in game 2

  27. U have to live in stafford playing stafford 😀
