  1. in minute 11 white can move h3, and then what?

  2. This is the main reason I don't like 1. Nc6

    1. e4 Nc6 2. d4 e5 3. d5 Nce7 4. Be3 Ng6 5. a3 d6 6. g3 Nf6 7. f3

  3. great great video. I have found the channel

  4. Any sicilian dragon is the best opening for black facing e4 very safe and easy and versatile opening and you get a good advantage at lower rating below 2000 this doesn't look solid

  5. I lost 100 rating points trying to make this work Still working on it I would like to master it

  6. This opening is not good in a higher rated player because they are bad positionally. Try Pirc Defense instead if you want a systematic opening. It's much better than Nimzowitsch Defense.

  7. I very grate to learned the technique style tnx kaspa chess games.

  8. Every defending open against an 1100 chess bot it new to shut down the bishop diagonal on f2 immediately. 😒

  9. Bro you just upped my game by about 300 elo🔥👍🏻✌🏼

  10. I prefer the pirc, it’s actually great in every elo unlike this.

  11. I just tested on ai factory chess lvl 3 and it doesn't play right it just keeps coming

  12. 🤔 I keep your secret but I know. And u know 2. Its koo. Clever tactics though huh

  13. how do you get that real time bar on the left?

  14. Can you please suggest how to plan after White Bishop_b5 for black Knight_c6 pinning the black pawn in e5???

  15. What s about

    1. e4 Nc6 2. d4 e5 3. d5 Nce7 4. Nf3 Ng6 5. h4

    I think white has a clear advantage

  16. I think
    1. e4, Nc6
    2. d4, e5
    3. xe5 Nxe5
    4. f4 …
    is critical. I hoped you will cover that.

  17. the thing ab the nizmowitch is that no one sees it against e4, similar to how few people play the dutch,uncommon openings but if you know them and play them consistently you will know every position better than your opponents

  18. Basically it transposes to a black knights tango/mexican defence

  19. No mention that 1. e4 Nc6; 2. d4 e5; 3. Nf3 transposes into the Scotch Game, a slightly unusual line (compared to the Ruy Lopez) that was at one stage a big part of Kasparov’s repertoire when he was world champion. It might even have been played in Kasparov-Karpov world championship title matches.

    Some books suggest 1. e4 Nc6; 2. Nf3, when 2. … e5 simply transposes to a position White might have planned on playing anyway. 3. Bb5 and 3. Bc4 would be the most common next moves, I expect. Or even 3. d4, as mentioned earlier! Black can vary by 1. e4 Nc6; 2. Nf3 d6, but that’s not covered here either.

    In the line with …Nc6-e7-g6, people have pointed out that an early Be3 by White prevents Black’s hoped for …Bc5 and can’t be harassed by …Nf6-g4 if Black is still shuffling around his other knight. White should have time for f3 and a later kingside pawn storm against those knight on g6 and f6.

  20. Is this good for a 1000-1600 rated tournament?

  21. Pronounced "Nimzovich." The w sounds like a v.

  22. I’ve tried this opening 6/7 times and lost every game to 1200 rated players. It never repeat never goes the way the video says. This chess video is absolute lies and rubbish

  23. I’m currently a 497 was up to a 900+ a few years ago before I stopped playing. Before I get online I have been doing puzzles and playing bots. I have also been focusing on playing white. This bot destroys me every game with various queen / knight or queen / bishop combos that no matter what I do it get into my back row and get 3 to 4 pieces, 2 or 3 checks, at least one pin before I somehow stop them (more likely they give up) the one piece that destroyed my opening and any chance of me winning because usually in 8 to 10 more moves I’m in checkmate. It’s freaking frustrating because no one makes instructional videos on how to counter this manslaughter. Sure, there is one that instructs on the qh4 idea but that’s just one and even these vids provide specific instruction on counters to very specific moves that literally don’t happen in the game. I’m 52 and have played since a child but we are talking about 2 times a year maybe 10 games. Now I’ve lost all my confidence and there wasn’t much there in the first place. I’ve taken IQ tests 3 times in my life (administered by VA hospital) veteran with post concussive syndrome 151 150 and a huge declination with a 135. So I should be able to play chess. At least learn it.

  24. Thanks, tried..getting absolutely demolished..

  25. After 1 e4 Nc6, White can and should play 2. Nf3. After 2… e5 (probably best), then 3.d4 transposes to the Scotch Game. 2…d5 gives White opportunities to mess up, but 3. exd5 assures White a solid game. The lines in this video MAY work against lower rated players, but play a lot of non-rated games, blitz and the like, before trying it in rated games.

  26. I've tried this like 10 times now and it doesn't work at all lol

  27. Wow.. really has made my black opening more fun (new player here)

  28. you pig, you got close to the queen! XXD LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

  29. I play for over 30 years and i would not play this because it's pretty passive. If both sides play perfect you are stuck.
    I prefer whites set up with a strong center here. Offcourse with the right moveorder without mistakes.

  30. Let’s watch……. OK some action by the master He plans and is moving his knights 4 time with his first five moves while the 300 rate is playing with his pawns….breathless action.
