  1. I was 50/50 on learning this opening until this video and you have without a shadow of doubt proven to me that it is for me.

  2. i so enjoy playing h5 on the 2nd move with the idea of e5 and completely confusing the opponent in bullet after they "blunder" a piece on move 3 if they play e3.. because, its not even that big an advantage, white gets some material and king safety comp, but still, psychologically difficult, id say, if youre so used to traditional London lines and if they play like Nf3, well, Im gonna have a tempo -ed up pawn lunged toward them in the future which doesnt hurt at all, d4 players are slow and unless you they gambit and you dont blunder any Jobava c7, youre fine being down a tempo in piece development, its just so fucking boring..

  3. Goddamn, I can get so pissed off with yt's random gobshite thrown @ me!

  4. Of the people I know, you're the one who uses the word "judiciously" the most. I've now heard it twice used by you :y which isn't a lot, but people normally don't use it in my area. Because they mostly talk German lol. But still.

  5. I know I am a loser in life at least now I can try for the draw in chess even though white. A Big thumbs and subscribed.

  6. "technically it is also after rook d1, just not immediately after, you pedantic nitpicking …."

  17. Any person who opens with queen side pawn, has already given up on life

  18. "… Solid position for the middlegame every time."
    That's the reason I use it. It had also made it so that I preferred playing black, as this opening has made white formulaic. Now I play the French.

    Ben you magnificent bastard.
    Also I play the Advanced variation so your argument doesn't apply.

  19. There's a way out of that tunnel though, it's called the Rapport-Jobava London.

  20. Your channel is underrated! Love your work continue!
