  5. London gambit : u gambit your wining chances.

  6. Elephant by the White Stripes is a great album, probably Jack White’s best

  7. There's another way to play the englund gambit where you then play d3 so when they take you bring the bishop out. That variation is probably b-a tier. Main line is trash though

  8. Me at 1800 2 and a half years later: I want to learn some new gambits😂

  9. I’m confident in the only person who’s the played the Kloosterboer gambit for more than 20 games

  10. How could they forget the infamous "BOTEZ GAMBIT"

  11. Alakhain sitting in his grave : you guys are dump as f, didn't remember the opening and GMs

  12. what about Cow opening
    *it was not invented that time 😂😂😂😂

  13. Eric is likely more offended that you didn’t rate the Stafford Gambit higher.

  14. YOU FORGOT BOTEZ GAMBIT THE QUEENNNN😂😂😂

  15. one gambit you forgot to mention: the epic Botez Gambit (I actually won with this before lol)

  16. Stafford Gambit has a ton of tactics unless you are playing against players who are over 1800 or so. Stafford isnt that good but neither that bad, i mean white has 1.3 advantage but its preety drawable at 1600 level.

  17. Chess is at a all low 1500 is considered Beginner Tf is this

  18. Tell me more about the poutine gambit

  19. I am disgusted that they put the Benko in total trash

  20. I appreciate this video with every point in my 300 ELO.

  21. If you look closely a comment at chatter at 21:21 gets banned for saying “you stupid gay”

  22. YOU FORGOT THE INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE GAMBIT

  23. as a person who is Serbian, and seing as how Belgrade is the capital of serbia, I can confidently say that your pronunciation belongs in the actual trash tier. See IN Serbian its called BeoGrad Witch means white city

  24. I do not know what strength is in my blood… but I swear to you, I will not let Belgrade fall, nor our people fail.
