  2. This opening is super spicy!! Just one mistake and you are done

  3. I needed this I did not know what to do against that Variation You always give me my openings

  4. I am loving your vids buddy. Keep up the great work.

  5. Yes! Love all your videos that start with "CRUSH" in the title!

  6. Can you make a whole video about your previous videos but covering the "what if my opponent moves this" and things like that.

  7. When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.

  8. I want to know about Extra Queen's Gambit and Italian Gambit.🙂

  9. Rook takes e7 followed by Rook takes g6 followed by queen takes g6

  10. thank you so much i was always confused by what to do against that pawn move that's going to be very helpful

  11. Puzzle of the day: Rxe7 Q/Bxe7 Rxg6+ hxg6 (since the f-pawn is pinned) Qxf6#

  12. Your last 2 videos the audio is out of sync.

  13. Rxe7. Either recapture followed by Rxg6 hxg6 Qxg6# so you win a knight.

  14. Ekscellen video,i like👍👍👍

  15. Regarding Puzzle:
    1. Rxe7 (Rook sac eliminating defender) and whether it's …Qxe7 or …Bxe7, then 
    2. Rxg6 (another Rook sac checking and discovering b2 Bishop) and after …hxg6 (there's no fxg6 due to pin from c4 Bishop), 
    3. Qxg6 mates! (again c4 Bishop prevents …fxg6 and b2 Bishop covers the dark squares)

  16. Rxe7 Qxe7 or Bxe7 then Rxg6 + the only move for black is hxg6 then Qxg6 +#

  17. Please! Do a long Speedrun video. Like from 400 level to yours.Thanks!!!

  18. White to win: Re1xe7 Qxe7, Rxg6 hxg6, Qxg6#

  19. I'm amazed by how many offbeat tricky lines you come up with that I've never seen before! Avoiding an early d2-d4 while avoiding the normal Closed Sicilian lines will probably confuse many opponents at the club level.

  20. You may be right, but the Alapin is the real anti-Sicilian

  21. 7:33 What happens is b5 was played? And Black defends Bb5+ with Bd7 attacking the bishop, if black were to take with the knight and Black exchanges, and Bishop would go back to its natural square, there black gains an open file on the b file, black can put long-term pressure on that b file, if white chooses to play b3 then theres Rb7, Qb8, Bd6 threatening Bh2x, now what are whites defenses from this? g2, Nc3 Ne4 Ng3 black can take with the black knight but that leaves black with deadly bishops eye-ing down on the kingside pawns, And Etc etc. Got lazy here, ive been analyzing for around an hour at this point and I Wish i Had a PC so i Can do this under 40 Minutes.

  22. 1. Rxe7; q or B x e7. 2Rxg6; hxg6.3 Qxg6 and mates

  23. I'm learning and progressing a lot with your videos. Keep it up! 💪

  24. Rxe7 no matter if Bxe7 or Qxe7 follows Rxg6+ hxg Qxg6+ or if Kh8 Rg8#

  25. Best opening trap trainer in the world…this stuff is incredible for intermediate chess play

  26. As a sicilian player looking at this, i feel less worried about the information shared here. And i will confidently play the sicilian for years to come. As white and black.

  27. Thank u so much for your videos sir! I learned a lot of tactics that i should know🥰

  28. Say to my opponents their game is lost, when they are down full piece. Ha!

  29. your voice is bit weird , i thought my phone stereo 🙏🏻

  30. 2:50 after white moves h4, Black moves Qe8 pinning the white queen on its king

  31. Many years ago playing Black my opponent played 1.e4 c5 2.Bc4 d6 3.Nf3 and I played …Nc6 he played 4.c3 e6 5.d3 Be7 6.0-0 Nf6 7.Be4 a6 8.a4 0-0 9.Nbd2 Qc7 10.Bf4 e5 11.Be3 Bg4 12.Qb3 Na5 13.Qa2 Nxc4 14.Qxc4 Be6 and I won. These tricky openings can be refuted the key is not to give your opponent too many targets.

  32. In the second trap, when you played Nxf7 there is also Kxe7 Qe6+ then Ke8
    Black are up with a piece
    Thanks anyway my friend

  33. At 11:08, Instead of Qc7 why not Bxh2 check, Kxh2, Qxf6 and Black is up the exchange and wins a pawn?
