    I love playing this line and you explained it so perfectly and made it so simple for me. Whenever my opponents capture on d5 I already feel like I've won. I'm only 1400 but I feel like I owe a huge chunk of my rating to video. Thanks!

    @agadmator I trying to play this against chess.com advanced level bot, but after knight to C3 it never does any of those moves you are showing that white would most probably do. and after 6/7 moves im in a totally lost situation :) I must say Im a beginer and 900(ish) player. But still...

    Ok just tried it, the match goes like that 1. e5 d4 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qd6 4.Nb5 White antecipates the pawn move and advances its knight creating the possibility of Nc2! with a fork on the rook. does anyone knows what would be the best move after Nb5?

    thanks. its really important (imo) that when talking about black, the board should be flipped. it seems like there is a strong antagonism for that, as if its considered amateur or not taken seriously.

    fib1618358Πριν μήνα

    With respect, if you're going to do openings, slow it down. For those of us who might want instruction on openings you're moving WAY too fast!!! For those who feel you're not going too fast, they probably already know the opening and don't need instruction. If you feel you're only catering to more serious chess players, who you feel should be able to keep up with you, perhaps, I should cancel as a sub. Racing through an opening as you have here really serves no purpose, I'd say, to most.

    You should consider a separate channel for content like this. I think youtubers use that as a way to get more subscribers since many people who subscribe to this channel will subscribe to your other channel, so you get two subscriptions from those people and more money.

    The problem with learning openings in lower ratings is that your oponent does not follow the best lines, and you're not good enough to punish. So the game quickly devolves in never played before state of mess.
