  1. 7:04. F4 is the move
    I thougt its fine i will get over it and then at 7:50 the qween doesnt take the pawn g2
    That is when i knew this is a shity game

  2. 3:54, Qa4 instead of Qb3 is a better move, fork a check and the bishop, gaining a free piece.

  3. What if black moves queen to E7 instead of moving the bishop. What is the solution then?

  4. i wil play this in blitz bullet and rapid sounds very very fun

  5. Why wouldn't you want your queen in front of the bishop instead of the other way around.

  6. At 7:30 it makes no sense to me why black would not move his queen to G2

  7. The danish gambit where the thumbnail looks like you just robbed all of their pieces… including the king

  8. Instead of D6, KH6 and then castle looks pretty solid. No?

  9. 4:01 couldn't black bishop get defended by black pawn so white queen wouldn't attack?

  10. In your expert opinion, what is the best way for black to respond to the danish gambit?Ignore the first gambit? Accept the first gambit? Accept the 2nd gambit?thank you!

  11. Great video, try to say 'they/their' instead of 'he/his' though as it makes it sound like only men play chess

  12. Why not just play out the resf of the game???

  13. At my level nobody makes the best move 😂, move 2: gambit over

  14. The audio is really quiet in this video. Anyway, I tried it out, but my opponent played a different line, and I totally messed it up.

  15. Demetrius Demarcus Bartholomew James III Jr. says:

    Gws Christian Erikson

  16. I love the danish gambit but the danish gambit does not love me

  17. I think my brother would not fall in this trap at the beginning. He would ignore the pawns and concentrate on his own plan. If you are experienced this won, t work. 😊👍❤️

  18. I’m playing with someone and they didn’t do that.

  19. I'm danish and this opening looks fun. This'll be my new main.

  20. Why doesn't the queen not capture the pawn on g2 square after white moves the knight to f3

  21. at 07:24 thats a worst move I can see, why did queen didn't take the pawn in g2?

  22. I like this video, but American's constantly say "go ahead" every 2 seconds, which is a little distracting and unnecessary.
    Growth vid tho 👍

  23. I just played this and my opponent asked me what the hell am I doing but played right into lol, so I sent him this video

  24. Hard to see anyone but a beginner falling for this gambit

  25. This counts too much on black making specific opening moves.

  26. 13 years ago a dubious proposition. Today a crushing attack.
