    So I’m just getting into chess and am still learning the basics. I always pause it when you say to pause it and try to figure out the moves. In this case @8:07 isn’t the best move the knight on b5 Nd6 forcing black Kf8 and then white has checkmate with Kc8. I know it’s the same outcome, I just wasn’t sure if it is a better or more optimal move. Love your videos for learning and entertainment btw!

    On the pause at 8:20 what you should have done is move knight b5 to d6. After that, queen takes rook for checkmate. Do it in two moves. Easier. I checked it.

    Please make Bobby's first U.S. Championship videos, Agad... It would be great to hear you commentate on Bobby's games again. "Fischer moves his fischer to c4!". Also, his games prove to be insightful rather than today's games where players focus on developing so much that they miss beautiful crucial moves which are interesting for humans to play and watch. The games of that era felt like battles instead of games. Please make some interesting Bobby Fisher games' videos my friend. #BringBobbyBack

    Hey Agga, if you really want to fill your boots with some real epic evans-fests, try the two Chigorin vs Steinitz matches 1889 and 1892. In the first match Chigorin employed the evans no less than 8 times (W8 L3 D1) and in the rematch fearlessly attacked again with the evans 8 more times (W4 L1 D3). Steinitz won both matches with his dry, dull but more accurate play but Chigorin wins the accolades for swashbuckling and piracy on board. I recommend game 17 of the 1889 match - sizzling!

    Why can't black queen capture white rook at 7:00 ? It threatens checkmate and forces white knight to defend but will result in checkmate regardless. I'm also a 600 rated player so I'm probably talking out my ass. Edit: white queen is protecting white rook. Me blind.

    I'm a hardcore Sicilian player, so have faced the Wing Gambit a few times, particularly in bullet and blitz. It's basically unsound for white but proving that in limited time as black can be difficult. My win rate against it with black is pretty good though, probably about 2/3. I've never had a game as wild as this one though!
