  1. Portuguese power 💪💪💪🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹

  2. I haven't gotten the exact checkmate you've gone over but this position has helped me get my opponents in super weird unfamiliar positions and I've had some good success with it so far… thank you!

  3. I'm playing the QF in a chess tournament vs the best player in the school defo gonna use this

  4. I saw someone pin my pawn on e6 but then i castled and pinned their queen. Very satisfying uno reverse card.

  5. can someone reply, what if they play 2.Nc3 i have no idea if i should take or push idk

  6. I only play this because I'm portuguese and i like it when my country is represented in games

  7. I just destroyed a person with this in a matter of 17 moves with 99.7% accuracy. This is a very powerful weapon

  8. Have you done a video on the bishop's opening?

  9. What if white attacks bishop With pawn G4? (at the beginning)

  10. Hi, Gotham! I love your videos. Can I request that you do a video on The Elephant Gambit? Or more exciting for me would be one on The Philidor Counterattack vs Bishops Opening. Thanks! Have a great day and a good Knight!
