  1. The demolished dingus died to the Danish gambit L

  2. I've recently started playing the Danish and have had some success.

  3. I have lost 250 points since started using this. 👍👍

  4. 6:42 you dont take the knight. you en passant. taking the knight just plain looses the game because black now think that your stupid.

  5. Oh really thank you levy🤗 I won 9 times in a row! Literally! I was using
    Danish gambite and ..and , I don't remember second one interchangingly

  6. It’s absolutely egregious that the danish gambit doesn’t start as a scandinavian

  7. I've found that playing Qb3 is a really fun idea

  8. bro ur tooo great, i watch ur videos, go play then lose the game due to some silly blunder and then come back again and repeat it over again

  9. My friend played this against me (dxc3, cxb2, Bxb2) and started a kingside pawn storm. He resigned later because none of his 8 pawns survived after move 21. He now no longer plays this gambit because of what I call the 'no-pawn variation'.

  10. one brings out bishop in defence of Danish Gambit.. you play some foolish moves by black and then show moves.

  11. In the triple sacrifice, isn't the most played and best move for black on move 5……d5? (and not bb4+)

  12. King is the slowest peice. One should sac king to get faster development of other pieces. Sadly, there is no gambit for that 🙁

  13. Why didn't you play a 2600?
    Only crushing smallies

  14. What to do when they play Queen and doesn’t take your pawn?

  15. Rose 450+ points to 1200 just because I watched this and his Scandanavian video, freaking love this guy

  16. I think I'm gonna start using demolished dingus now

  17. These might be some incredibly dumb question but how do I put this in to a pgn? I have the chess viewer mobile app. Can it even be done on a phone or does it have to be over a laptop or desktop?

  18. Danish Gambit when I start with d4 and my opp starts with e5 >>>

  19. Gmbits are vulnurable to next counterplay – just decline each gambit and you will hurt opponents feelings

  20. I played this a few days ago at 800 elo and they said they were reporting me. Lol. I actually lost. I figured I had to have a mate somewhere and I just started checking the king and bringing in more and more pieces. My opponent was furious. He defended perfectly and said he reported me and I was “sad”. By that time he was +5 and I had no more checks. Told him to stop crying and win already. And he did. Lol. It was a really fun game though.

  21. i havent had the chance to use it yet but this is the opening ive been looking for very aggresive and open absulute gem thanks oh great master levi

  22. Why to show the scripture.Due to this unable to see.

  23. I've had a good amount of success with this opening, thank you so much for this video. Was wondering, what do you do if they decline the triple gambit after taking two pawns? I still win a good amount in that situation just by capturing their pawn with the knight or threatening mate with the queen/white bishop combo, but what do you you think the main line to "Triple Danish Gambit Declined" should be?

  24. On 14:00 trading a pon and Queen, i win every game start like that haha, because he lost castling and you are first after trading a queens..

  25. Learning the danish gambit on this channel literally took me from 1200 to 1395. Gotham teaches incredible content. This is the best channel that teaches solid opening.

  26. After playing for some time black pinning my king side knight never works out for them. I don't even find it annoying but they keep doing it.

  27. Thank you i destroyed the 1400 bot boxbox im like a 1000 player in skill

  28. 27:38 Why didn't black take rook with Ba1? White can't recapture or black would take the bishop on d3 with check?

  29. Wow. Watched the first five minutes. Paused to go try it out. Crushed my first opponent with a super satisfying checkmate from clear across the board. Danish gambit is here to stay in my arsenal… Thanks for the video!

  30. I came here to strengthen my Danish gambit
    You forgot to mention that this gambit also gives white another benefit which time… black will spend a lot of time trying to think of how to block all these attack which is beneficial

  31. 4:38 in bullet, after cxb2 I play Bxf7+ Kxf7, Qc3+ Ke8, Bxb2 and move on

  32. In the Danish declined danya proposed taking e5 and then after nxe5 you play nc3 and give black an opportunity to positional blunder with nf3 followed by f4 e5 kicking both knights and undeveloped blacks king knight like in the Vienna gambit

  33. I learned this gambit a few years ago and promptly forgot it…but now I know it again thanks so much

  34. Hey Gotham you should make Stockfish play the Danish against itself to see how that plays out

  35. i dont like to move my pieces tho. what if i like to move my pawns out first? what should i do then? ;D

  36. what is the best way to practice one tactic, one opening? what tool to use? can i filter puzzles for a specific theme?

  37. Absolutely destroyed someone with this gambit, when he was mate in 1 he stalled 1 till he timeouted

  38. can you do bongcloud and hyper bongcloud

  39. Wow, 30 minutes of Levy talking about the Danish Gambit, I feel bad for watching this for free this is amazing.
