A few months ago, I made a video on how to crush playing 1. e4 and gave various recommendations against Black’s openings in the French, Sicilian, Scandinavian, and so on. In this video, I analyze the Vienna Attack in full depth. It’s excellent for beginners, intermediates, and advanced players.

  1. Me- trying to play e4
    Le black- plays Caro kann💀

  2. 3:34 We don't need to win the queen, it's a forced mate after Ne5 Rxe5+ Kf6 Qf3+ Bf3 Qxf3#

  3. If your opponent plays d5, they know what they're doing. Or they got lucky. 😂😂😂

  4. watching in 2023 you're at 4.17 mil bro congrats!

  5. i guess vienna is halloween gambit 2.0

  6. Who else started a game at the beginning of the video? 😅

  7. I dont know how this gambits any different from kings gambit. You end up in almost the exact same positions.

  8. Crazy that Levy was at 100k subs just 2 years ago and now nearing 4,5mil

  9. Who forgot the moves while playing😂

  10. too much information for a literal 500 like me

  11. Hello ! Thx for the lesson.
    According Stockfish, the roque at 3:07 is a mistake (eval : 1.53). The good choice is Qe2 ! (eval : 2,77 !! so … u already won the game ^^)
    At 8:39 9.Ne2 is not the best since 9.Qh5 threats mat & forces g6 ^^
    Finally … Since (at noob lvl) 2.Bc5 is a very frequent choice ! What would u play to continue ? Probably 3.Bc4 is yr main choice hoping a transposition to the copycat 14:46 (^.^)/ after 3.Nc6 Isn't it ?
    Bye & thx again ^^

  12. I've watched this so many times. Thanks Levy

  13. My opponent accepted my vienna gambit and when I attacked his knight he proudly played Nh5 without any hesitation.

  14. I like winter when it rains very cold, i stay clean and sober so i dont get sick.

  15. I watched this like a hundred times but still cant remember what to do when I start playing

  23. thank you dear levy aka GothamChess, today i played with my sir and we went to vienna with white pieces on the board. Defeated him and he said that's impressive….. All credit to you 🙏🙏🙏🙏

  24. 15:54 what's the plan if black plays the bishop back, you play c3, and then queen retreats to c5? it escaped, but stockfish still says the position is like +5 or +7 but i cant quite figure out why, and what the gameplan following this position is.

  25. 4.32M subs 10/28/23. Long way past 100k, good for you. keep it up!
