  1. Thank you!! Great video. Great presentation!I lost a game as Black today against this. Somehow I had never seen or heard of it before then. 6…Qe7+ !! Yes!

  2. Great video. How often do you think players use the Scotch Gambit. Like how common is it?

  3. I won a tournament using the caro kann 4 times thanks to your vids! Please keep posting more of these 🤗

  4. Thank you. It was very clear and helpful 🙂

  5. Thank you for this video and the others which complete the Italian scope. After several months of practice with all of your videos that I looked at, I came to my final conclusion that this white-green board is much better than the cream-brown one. Could you please inform Andrey too to use this white-green one. Thank you.

  6. Thank you for the videos! Will you ever talk about the giuoco pianissimo variations?

  7. Great vid! Where can I buy one of those chess matts?

  8. I like the presentation very much! Was looking for information on this gambit and was pleasantly surprised by this. Very clear explanation. Thanks.

  9. I have been watching many of your videos over the last couple weeks, this channel is a goldmine of chess educational content; it is truly an injustice that this channel doesn't have many more views and subscribers, but thank you so much for giving all the information at a free price! I'm currently 1550 USCF, and trying my best to get to 1700 by 2023, I think this channel will help me get there!

  10. Do you have a video that covers 4…d6?

    1e4-e5 2Nf3-Nc6 3Bc4-Nf6 4d4-d6

  11. Please include a small chess window other than the physical chess piece for an easier view, just like what you did on the anti-liver video. thank you.
