Chess Openings: Fried Liver Attack

The fried liver attack is a super aggressive opening that derives from the two knights defense in the italian game. White looks to sacrifice his knight on f7 so that he can take initiative and start a great assault against the black king. Black has to be on his toes and has to play very careful or else he will find himself checkmated very fast.

  1. I tried playing the fried liver attack and my opponent played exactly as shown in the video, it was so satisfying

  2. Sounds like a bunch of fried liver to me. There has got to be an answer to this opening, sadly I don’t see much. But I feel this is not a sound opening.

  3. This will all work if black doesn’t move his pawns which if he does then it’s bye bye bishop

    السلام عليكم شكرا على الطريقه الشطرنج

  5. it's a crap opening if opponent is just mediocre or even less

  6. 9:43 he can take with queen its just a queen trade for a white bishop and black knight

  7. I love how 11 years later he uses the same ui

  8. When white take pawn on d5 with his pawn black probably don't take pawn back with knight instead black will attack the whites bishop with other knight.

  9. what the fock does this preteen squawking talking about

  10. Everybody a gangsta until they fucking play pawn to h6

  11. What would I do if after knight g5 he plays the light squared Bg4 and attacks the queen

  12. i,ve always play this tactic,but the opponent also plays liver attack

  13. WHITE'S dark square Bishop: Queen Bishop . . . WHITE'S light square Bishop: . . . King Bishop.
    BLACK'S dark square Bishop: King Bishop . . . BLACK'S light square Bishop: . . . Queen Bishop.
    Your Welcome. [ : —) >

  14. I am still learning but if instead 11…Kd6 moves 11…Qh4 all is over for white!

  15. I’m just learning chess😅. What if they move the f7 pawn after you mover your bishop?? What’s the next best move?

  16. How do you best proceed when your opponent goes knighth6 & his queen is suddenly very much free to destroy your knights fried liver attack on f7 ambitions?🤷🏼‍♀️

  17. Will watch it a few times more to learn the FLA, then try it at Fritz.

  18. What if white take with his bishop and not the horse at F7 in the start?

  19. As a beginner, I usually win because I use no rules just instinct. I play like crazy, makes the opponent confused. So far I have more or less 50% win over 100 games. I attack and attack in a confusing way. I’d surely loose more if I used tactics that people are prepared to expect. My goal is to start wining more. Today I lost 7 games in a roll hahaha such as life

  20. Wait why move the pawn to attack the bishop? Couldn't the bishop take the pawn and free piece?

  21. 1:27 what if they move pawn to H6? That's what they usually do to me 🤔

  22. cool now every 500 rating player i play against uses this

  23. Too many variations explained at once. Why not demonstrate the preferred line for each side, one the attack is accepted, having achieved this and allowed the line to sink in then deal with variations?

  24. Black has pawns to attack the bishop and the knight and also black should use the white squard bishop to protect the knight at the center and not use the king! Wtf kind of drugs do you have to be on to play as bad as black here ?!?

  25. My opponent must have watch this video. Can't trick anyone with this.

  26. How so u prevent this attack
    I have been a victim

  27. Next opening we’ll be looking at the “180 tomohawk fried sheep nuts” it’s a passive approach.

  28. This os the opening preferred by Chaz Michael Michaels

  29. I laughed so hard when the chess AI called my attack the fried liver attack.

  30. What if queen d7 his move..whats the next?

  31. i absolutely love this opening , this is one of the best aggressive openings and fits my play style

  32. white has no attack after 5. exd5 and black respond Na5.

  33. https://youtu.be/0ITi9Jc0J-o?t=470
    At this point 9. a3 loses As after that move

    9. a3?? Nxc2+ 10. Kd1 Nxa1 11. Nxd5 Qh4!! Not as shown in video as Kd6?? https://youtu.be/0ITi9Jc0J-o?t=529 And black is winning As after 12. Nxc7+ Kd7 13. Qf7+ Qe7 14. Qxe7+
    Bxe7 15. Nxa8 Kd6 16. d4 Bf5 17. Re1 Rxa8 * Black wins.
    Hence Correct move is 9. Bb6 and its still a draw. Fried Liver Attack Just appears dangerous but isnt after proper defense.
