  1. Portuguese power 💪💪💪🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹

  2. 1000 elo here. when i do this the person im going against always plays pawn g4 after f3 attaking my bishop

  3. As a native from Portugal this is an honour. And I feel complied to learn this opening that I didn't even know existed, I am glad. Thank you, Levy for sharing this.

  4. Hey levy.. i came back to this video after almost 6-7 months.. i learnt this gambit but never got a chance to play coz opponents never played accordingly.. but finally i played it today and got 97.4 percent accuracy (first time ever) and specially it was over stronger opponent.. just wanted to share my joy and thank you❤ more power to you 🙏😊

  5. i thought after Nc6 it was a fork but there was to much threats so black will be wining

  6. What usually worries me in this opening is this: 1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Nf6 3. d4 Bg4 4. f3 Bf5 5. c4 e6 6. g4

  7. This video was released on my birthday last year and I haven’t even noticed

  8. 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  16. 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!
