In this video, IM Andrey Ostrovskiy brings to you the sharp Urusov Gambit that arises out of the Bishop’s Opening. The Urusov Gambit is an aggressively line and after the moves:

1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6

white challenges the center by playing 3.d4 to exert pressure on black’s e5-pawn. Black needs to play carefully in order not to fall into a trap.

  1. You seem to be the only person on YouTube that covers the Urusov gambit with the line Nf4 as white. That is the line I usually play this gambit in hopes of course black takes pawn on e4 with his knight on f6 or (Nxe4).

  2. Nice video plz make video on calculating moves in chess

  3. Hello. I’m a Pro member on your website and have been making my way through the beginner course path. I’m quite a few lessons in but whenever I play an actual chess game online, I always make silly mistakes or just end up losing. Any advice? Thanks (:

  4. Strategy videos on the Urusov Gambit seem never to consider the move for Black: 3.d4 Nc6(!) Why? It seems like a good move to decline that gambit that way.
    My A.I. always responds with that move. And I'm honestly not sure how to respond with white after 3. …Nc6.
    Any advice?

  5. Nice video
    I know it is difficult but can you please add a digital board to the upper left, and enlarge the real board by moving it a little to the right bottom
    This will make the video more clear at lower resolution
    And saves my data consumption 🙂

  6. Istead of Nc6 going into the Two Knights defense BLack can play Bb4+ or Bc5. Bb4+ is covered in other videos. But what is the best line for White after Bc5. Does this go into the Max Lange Variation or are there other solutions which are easier?

  7. Hi. Excelent explanation. From time to time I like to play urusov gambit, but mostly without success. Can you make a video if black plays for example 3. Nc6? Or at least put a comment / advice. thanks

  8. What board and chess set is that. Interested in purchasing one just like it

  9. Hi please do a video on more specificly how to defend against the urusov gambit.
