  1. I love your vids
    And can I ask if ur from Russia?
    bec I herd u speak Russian

  2. At 6:03 I don't get it. Isn't knight to b5 stronger then d5? It has the same threat to fork the king and rook but ti also immediately hits the queen.

  3. Can we schcolars mate with black in counter of England

  4. so many rating points won playing against this at 1100 and lower lmao :)) this and the chopped liver… automatic wins

  5. In the line ‏ ‏‪4:39‬‏ ‪when you sac the queen why would you take the night with the queen and not with the bishop and the take the rook?

  6. In the thumbnail levy write 20 thousand 20000

  7. But sometimes i stuck in the middle game, and time goes out, so please make a video on that.

  8. If anyone so much as even Looks at their queen before turn 100 n I boil wiv rage n storm off wiv the chess set. It's not even my chess set. Been arrested twice, beaten up once.

  9. Word is that if you play the Englund Gambit on Elm Street it is a nightmare. 🥷

  10. Levy:"you should analyze games after you play one"

    Me:im to broke for diamond menership

  11. I used to look for the same exact queen – bishop positions every game and ending up doing a caro-kann defence hillbilly attack

  12. Levy, if high rated players are complaining it must be jealousy. I am a low rated player recently returned to chess. I love your videos man. Keep it up. You make chess fun! It's a game! If I am your opponent I am an engine. But good news for you, I am a 1970s MGB engine. 🤣

  13. After Qe7, what if white responds with Qd5?

  14. I've tried playing this 3-4 times at 1200 elo rapid and every single time my opponent plays the best moves after Qxb2 and I end up in such a losing position… It seems that the counter moves really are pretty intuitive.

  15. At 6:03 I don't quite understand why knight to b5 hitting the queen and c7 is considered an inaccuracy compared to knight to d5

  16. Hello! What to do in case of 2.d5?? Best regards

  17. In one of my games the opponent play Nc3 i play Nb4 threatening to capture the c2 pawn, but instead defending the c2 pawn my opponent play a move that didn't make a breathing room for the king he play(i forgot what moves my opponent play) then I take c2 with my Knight and my opponent resign.

  18. Just stop promoting such bad gambits since Englund is easy to beat. Don't teach awful trash.

  19. The Title Englund Lund 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂

  20. I used, butchered the move order, and still won. Thanks Levy

  21. I've tried this on many games and it's not worked once…

  22. 06:30 Hm.. the question remains: does to memorize Levy's video count as cheating?


  24. This looks so bad… i'll just stick to the dutch

  25. U always run into Bg5, how do I punish that?

  26. What if the white’s third move is pawn to f4?

  27. At 24.24 can’t you check and take the dark squared bishop

  28. Fuck this shit man my opponent never play queens pawn opening

  29. Levy and what if the opponent plays, instead of Bf4, Qd5 to defend the pawn? Im asking because i got that a lot of times

  30. I always play the London and I’m trying to better against this move that really stops me from doing what I want

  31. One of my own games recently, white shuffling rook draw or mate. 1. d4 e5 2 dxe5 Nc6 3 Nf3 Qe7 4 Bf4 Qb4+ 5 Bd2 Qxb2 6 Nc3 Bb4 7 Rb1 Qxc3 8 Bxc3 Bxc3+ 9 Nd2 Nxe5 10 Rb3 Ba5 11 Rb5 Bc3 12 Rc5 Bd4 13 Rd5 Bc3 14 f3 Nf6 15 Rc5 Bd4 16 Rxc7 Nd5 17 Rxc8+ Rxc8 18 e4 Ne3 19 Qe2 Nxc2+ 20 Kd1 Ne3+ 21 Ke1 Rc1+ 22 Kf2 Nf5+. I find the Qxc3 line interesting for dynamic players.

  32. I'm an 1100 – ish and I was playing a game today where my opponent played 1e5 to my 1d4, and then started randomly moving his queen all over the board in the next like 4 moves.

    It looked completely random and I had no idea what he was doing…..but I think I get it now. He was trying for one of these lines……and I just somehow accidentally avoided blundering into one of the traps….

  33. mato jelic does not need us to show us his face to teach something
    no ego like these guys who feel showing their face gives us something
    it does not.we only need to see the board
