πŸ”Ή The BEST Chess Opening Against 1.e4 – Every Move is a Trap! –

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you an aggressive and universal chess opening for White. It is especially useful for beginner and intermediate level players, those who are under 1600 rating and want to break that rating barrier.

You don’t need to study Ruy Lopez, Italian Game, the Two Knights Game, and a bunch of other openings that you usually need to know if you are going to play 1.e4 as White. With this single aggressive opening, you can get rid off learning those a bunch of opening theories and make your opening repertoire easy to learn.

You will learn the Evans Gambit which happens after the following moves:Β 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4. You will learn a bunch of attacking ideas on how to keep the momentum going, some really cool traps, and how to attack the Black’s centralized king (preventing it from castling).

  5. Very well explained and comprehensive. πŸ‘
    I'll surely implement this opening in my games. πŸ˜€
    Thank you πŸ™β€οΈ

  6. Pawn to d5 knight have to move somewhere than with the help of queen we give check a4 and win the black bishop easily if black tries to stop that check with the help of sacrifices his pawns still he lose material at the end in the form of rook

  7. Even I know about this opening before but never have tried this before but after watching your video now I am well prepare and must try it on my games as well .Thanks for your efforts .

  8. One idea is simply to play d5 and after retreating the Knight Qa4+ c6. Qxa5. If then cxd5 Bb5+ and Ba3 are threats in the long run as well as casteling. Second idea is Ng5, which forces Nh6, but not so promising.

  9. d5 forces the Knight away, after which Qa4+ wins the bishop.

  10. It's so long when you said will make soon video about it…..when I asked you About how to play against English opening…. you haven't make yet….

  11. I'm a bad player. This helps me a lot. Thanks

  12. anyone who knows the answer to the puzzle may reply under this comment

  13. Can you please find traps in english rat defense? :3
    1.d4.d6 2c4.e5

  14. for the puzzle, i think you can play d5 here, Nb8 is likely to be forced then queen to b5, forking the king and bishop then you win.
    I thought Bg5 works but i forgor Nf6

  15. I think Qb5 wins a piece.
    If Bb6, you play d5, and if black goes a6 you retreat Qa4 to keep the pin and grab the knight on the next move.

  16. Omg where's the cat?? There's a bunny in his place!?

  17. Thank you, I might even consider buying your courses as I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your work
    Mmm, I never thought I;d say that
    Regards
    Neville

  18. me in the video: freaking obvious.

    me in the match: 7 blunders

  19. Puzzle solution. d5!! wins material as either the Nc6 is captured or it moves away and Qa4/b5+ wins the Ba5.

  20. Puzzle – 1. d5 – Nd8
    2. Qa4 wins bishop 🀠

  21. I think this opening is definitely playable up until someone hits the top 100 GMs in the world, just based on the fact that Kasparov could beat Vishy with it in a classical WCC match

  22. Agadmator approves of this video explaining the greatest of all openings.

  23. Where is your cat? All I see is a pink and white bunny 🐰

  24. I don't think that bishop is doing that much to close center with d5 to win it. Then your queen is in Siberia somewhat . I like NG5

  25. Igor – great stuff. Question: have you checked out this line in the Nimzowitsch Defense? It follows the pattern you like to showcase that the most commonly played moves are bad and there's a nasty sacrifice at the end which most players don't know how to defend against. 1. e4 Nc6 2. Nf3 d5 3. exd5 Qxd5 4. Nc3 Qh5

  26. Thanks for the great video. In your last example, what if black blocks with the queen (behind black's pinned bishop)?

  27. Quite nice pink plush toy.
    But it's nothing to the Chessex cat!

  28. Very interesting opening. However certainly remembering the moves in a game is important. Usually I find players never make the expected moves, then you find yourself in a pickle. I'm going to have to try one out though. Thanks

  29. In the video after white plays Ba3 wanted to see response to black playing dxc3.

  30. As Bobby Fisher said, chess is really a game of memory. If you know the opening moves well, you will have an absolute advantage in winning the game cause most moves have their best response that will irrevocably affect the rest of the game.

  31. I like video,gm igor smirnov πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  32. 5:38 stockfish upping the evaluation by +0.6 just while being told off to underestimate white.

  33. the engine evaluation should have the option to type in the elo of the players so it can adjust depth and position evaluations accurately 🦾 for mangoos playing this position is +1 but with you is -2 haha
