I don't get it. It doesn't shut them down when I counter the grunfeld.
As a low Elo player, I'm looking for more openings to add to my ….openings. Just solid, non-gambit openings with strong early development for white.
So far I like the scotch and the London, but I'm looking for a third solid choice. I'm not a fan of how the English is giving black the center. At all. I need my center and piece dev at all times.😂 Any suggestions?
"The English opening cuts back 90% of opponent familiarity."
You picked the wrong side pawn. Pathetic. The Bird's opening cuts back 99.65% of opponent familiarity.
thank you so much.
your channel is great bro! thanks for the lessons
You get back here and re-record those other 2 seconds or I'm filing a report to the FCC.
Levy, can u pls explain why nimzo (black bishop to B4) cannot be played if the opening sequence is:
Thank u, levy!!
What if c4, e5 then kc3 and black plays Qh4?
Very helpful video 👍
Hi Levy, I enjoyed your English opening lesson. Just wondered what whites best response is to 1…….b5. Would defending the pawn with 2.b3 or 2.d3 or even 2.e4 (bishop defends) work?
The Caro Kahn got me to 1600. But i dislike playing E4 as white. Looking for something new.
valuable 10min English carousel
Teeter-totter or Seasaw maybe.
Alphazero and Leela chess love the English opening! Humans have to make them start with other openings to make something happen…
i like the back ground
ya boy got his NFT in the background😂😂
"Bowl of pawns" really makes this video awesome. And the fact that it's simple, instructive, and free. Thanks, Levy!
My opponent played the two knights english and I didn't know this opening and just played the accelerated dragon against it, luckily it worked because it seems he didnt study the line against that, and levy seems also to not have covered that in his video, only the symmetric variation. ^^
it kinda bugs me that the subtitles block the board
my bad… you can turn them off lol
Glad I came here, because the other video did not do this credit. I need to re-evaluate a little.
Ahhhh the greatest chess rivalry of all time.
Unfortunate opponent vs amazing viewer!
The english is basically just a white sicilian
This is my main opening
It's very strong
I always play it in classic with 90% winrate
But it's not working in blitz because it's too slow
Got my elo from 400 to 500 from the fried liver attack but now people can atually defend so i am stuck again
Sir plz make vedio on London
Thanks to this video I don't worry even a little when playing against an English opening: I just copy my opponent, annoy them and save a lot of time.
I like the English too — but their food is not great. Actually, I did want to say I prefer chess instructors who don't yammer on in the names of openings — the Grunfeld, the Kings Indian, Sicilian, etc. Not needed or communicative at this level.
What would be the optimal response to something like black playing d5 after playing c4? Or playing d5 after covering d5 with a knight
I have to slow every single one of your videos down because you talk at lightning speed. If these are intro videos I think a little less haste would be hugely appreciated. Great content, but please slow the fk down.
This has been my bullet opening, has a nice logical flow
Wow so Gotham actually used to not clickbait before
Went from scrapping for 500 to challenging 700, keep learning
god damn chess
1:15 can't they still do a grunfeld?
i play the reti with this
1:02 what if they play Bb4??
Good openings really improve your game a lot. If you know how to play the first 5-10 moves. Getting your pieces set up properly early on maximizes your ability to build a solid midgame. Inaccuracies in the opening only make it harder for you to win, and it's very easily avoidable if you just learn some opening tactics. Thanks, Levi
Thanks, I am a 2000 who has been playing this opening very wrong apparently xD
I want to use the word "fork" for that though
Ha ha …. I am here to play as "Black". And I got the answer what would be my Plan against "White"😜. Thanks 👍
damn, I'm 2 years late. Which Magnus/Nakamura games is he talking about?
Well rapid champion nodirbek plays the english
7:43 – I've recently played over 100 games with the carousel carton bowl of pawns and its been devastating my opponents.
lol @ "I don't know why I said carousel"
me praying Levi has a vid on this opening so I don’t fall asleep
