  3. amazing content, i am watching you from Nairobi,Kenya

  4. i had seen all but the last one before. definatly a cool one

  5. Hi Igor , Thank you for your video and I like the way u explain various lines. However I have played first trap in many games it was initially showed by Eric Rosen, the only drawback in this is that though u win the white bishop but it exposes black king big time and some time it becomes difficult to defend if you r playing against a strong player and u r not able castle long. Also I would like to ask in last trap if Black plays g6 what would be the right continuation..

  6. I have lost my queen twice in the englund Gambit but I won both games 😎

  7. Thanks for sharing. Another wonderful lesson

  8. Every upload is like a chess classroom

  15. Most people play proper Sicilian or e4 e5….make video on that

  16. 7:53 couldn't black just go knight d3 and win the Queen?

  17. Master thank you very much..i won the game a lot….

  18. When im practice, my opponent trap me back 🙁

  19. I think one big disadvantage of countering the London system as per your suggestion, makes the king vulnerable to attak from the queen which could be dangerous.

  20. Thanks for showing us all those traps but it would have also been great to show ways to counter attack the traps…

  21. That queen captures Rook but after queen get trapped not shown further
