  1. At 4:24, what happens if black goes knight e7 to block the attack on the queen+ put preasure on g5?

  2. How do I access the vido wherein black does not nove his bishop?

  3. What if instead of black bishop to c5, black brings knight out to f6, white castles, and knight to f6 takes pawn e4? 9 times out of 10 if I don't defend the pawn on e4, the opponent takes the pawn, then their next move no matter what is to fork my queen and rook by taking f2 removing my ability to castle.

  4. The Barnes Opening Hammerschlap variation has a 75% win rate for white (the player) and a 25% draw rate

  5. I played a variation of this opening, but I didn't castle before playing pawn d4, and then when my opponent took, I sacrificed the bishop right away. I ended up winning later by pinning a knight and attacking a rook, and I took the rook. Do you recommend this variation too, or is your method more secure? My premise was that after sacrificing my bishop, I can attack again with the knight and give a check, and bring my queen out.

  6. I opened in this manner and all was going well. When I pushed my pawn to d4 they captured with the pawn and I pushed pawn to e5. BUT, when they moved Ke4 and I followed with Qe2, they responded with pawn to f5. I wasn’t sure how to proceed following that. Can you give advice?

  7. I really enjoy in your tutorials. Thank you very much. What happens if black instead of e6, attacks the queen with g4?

  8. These are like fake martial arts. It only works if your opponent does exactly as you want them to.

  9. on 11:10 is it good instead of b3 with the knight, to queen d3 ? is that good?
    please tell me in reply

  10. I have a question @Remote Chess Academy: What if Black plays 3…Nf6 after 3. Bc4 that we played. If I castle next then I will hang my pawn so I am wondering how I can apply this gambit in different ways…

  11. Bro had one chance to play en passant and didn't take it.

  12. Even though all the moves are most played, I have not gotten the starting Deutz position a single time after 10 games with white (I am 1780). Sad because it looks like such a great opening.

  13. I will single-handedly bring this statistic down.

  14. I like the way he say "evil move"πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ€£

  15. 2:06 can't black move their pawn up to defend their knight in this position?

  16. Amazing video, I really like the way you explain things!

  17. I know this line in bout side..
    I play 1st Re1+ instead of fxg7 bcus I want to force black to cover the check with Be6. Then I move Ng5

  18. for those who immediately want to not only criticize it notice that Carlsem plays it and he has a GB designation while these other idiots are just players like me ..Think of helping people to play better instead of attacking any system

  19. Why when playing against a computer we must play using that horrible green and whiteboard instead of a really nice-looking chessboard? Maybe someone can fix that?

  20. What if pawn goes to d5 to support knight and attack bishop simultaneously. At time point 2.01

  21. Lots of players take pawn Ne4… which is a variation not covered.

  22. Question; at 7:03, what if black plays d6, instead of backing down with his knight?
    And…thanks for an excellent video! πŸ™‚

  23. I tried this and the knight moved to e4 and then I moved my queen to e2 as demonstrated, but then black moved its pawn from c7 to c5 because it’s attacking my bishop and if I kill it, the queen takes my bishop so the only thing I can do is retreat?

  24. Wouldn’t the enemy it the pond with the horse

  25. I got this postion many times, never realized I can do this kind of moves…

  26. As usual, great instructional video, very clear, thanks a lot!
