In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares his new favourite chess opening gambit for White after 1.e4. It happens in the Scotch Game after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 and White sacrifices another pawn 4.c3, which leads to the Goring Gambit.

White’s idea in this gambit is to achieve a very active position with a lot of attacking opportunities. This aggressive gambit also has a trap that has the potential to defeat the world champion Magnus Carlsen!

  1. Amazing!!! I keep on watching all your videos. i hope you make petroff damiano gambit for black, so many traps too, but not so many video materials made so far.

  2. This opening is my type 😍now I understand what to do

  3. It cannot be said that Gambit is used in Russia

    For example, look at the 2021 World Chess Championship

    Nepo had 4 starts on Lopez out of 6 games (68 percent).

  4. Excited to try this out. Thanks for another great video, bud.

  5. Wow, I tried it out on a higher rated person and this worked despite they pinned my queen knight on the 5th move. It was a hard battle and they fought to end on defend, and succumbed to all my attacks. I'll have to try it on the 2k players next. Do you have a recommendation for a black's opening dominance like this? I never was one for sacking pieces for gain of momentum. I'm going to have to change that point of view. Thanks for this awesome tip!

  6. at 4:19 you play Qb5 and at 11:10 you play Qa4 (otherwise you block the Bishop). Could the 4:19 move also be Qa4?

  7. Sir your videos are great it helps me to gain 2000 ratings in lichess but how I can gain 2000 to 2300. Can you make a video on what have to do after getting 2000 ratings and how to improve more. And a opening video on Catalan. And Thanks for sharing these cool videos.

  8. Wow! Great gambit just won 2 games with it each under 17 moves.

  9. I never see GMs give away two pawns in the opening

  10. Since I saw your video yesterday I have played this gambit 3 o 4 times in blitz and won everytime 😉 Thanks, Igor !!!

  11. 4…d5.

    The trap after 16…Nd2? has been known since Ribli-Imre, HUN 1968.

    When I used to play this gambit I preferred the move order 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 dxc3 (d5) 4.Nxc3 Nc6 5.Nf3.

  12. سلام ایگور دوست داشتنی
    Hi smirnov Igor very good Thanks
    Please book our pdf Thank you for game s

  13. Cicilline suozzi Fisher pdf our video may friend

  14. I love your videos but in 2:35 black can actully go to f3 with his knight and check white and it could ruin white pawn structure, after that bishop to d6 to prevent the fork, so I think it is better for black than white

  15. Nooo that's actually my favorite blitz weapon, I don't want a lot of people to watch this video and be prepared for it xd

  16. Ooh! 🌟🙏🏽 Love your channel, always learning. Would be a treat to play this line successfully 🤩

  17. somehow Isabel always knows not to play e5 from the very beginning.

  18. Somehow i suspect Magnus would spot this trap and deal with it appropriately 😉

  19. match nicely well to my style of gameplay in chess, since my advantage is the attack that my opponent can barely defend against.

  20. I love your tactics. These are awesome and no one makes and shares them online…..

  21. Wonderful, I have destroyed my opponents mercilessly, now at 1200 as a 1 month beginner.

  22. Wow sir it worked I beat two 1600 players last night. Thanks

  23. Wow sir it worked I beat two 1600 players last night. Thanks

  24. nah it's completely prevent by black playing 6 na5, which is the more common move.

  25. I tried this six times, 12 games, and no black player did move 1 or 3.

  26. This really open lots of threats to Black

  27. Yeah learn the various Gambits like opponents are always fools and you will be the next GM in waiting. Learning chess is to learn the art of defense and offense.

  28. He’s correct, most of blacks moves are logical and will be played. Most but not all.

  29. Magnus Carlsen could hope white over reaches at the end after 1)Qxg7 Nd2 2) QxR ch Kd7 3)RxNch? kc7 whites attack is out and he must give up his Queen to stop mate on e1

  30. Another great video. You have the best chess channel 🙏🏼🙏🏼

  31. What if Magnus does not goes for the f1 rook and long castles???
    i.e. 16…Nd2, 17. Qb4 O-O-O

  32. @ 11:52 I believe white is better off with Bxb7, then Qb5+, then QxN. That way black's pawn at c3 cannot advance. So when white does Be3, black cannot block white's bishop with c5. (by the way, I really like these examples!)

  33. 3:12 what if the opponent plays knight a5 instead of taking with bishop

  34. This is great, now if i can just remember all of this. LOL!~
