  1. Perfect and very instructive, keep up the great job!!

  2. the Ke7 line is actually completely fine for black, it looks bad but white's attack just runs into nothing if you defend properlybtw most players under 1500 aren't even aware about Qh5, I've recently started to play d5 instead of Nf6 first and so far everyone just moves the bishop 😂

  3. bro was gone so long his voice changed 😳

  4. another nice lesson, but why did you guys change the narrator?

  5. Welcome back!
    I like your in-depth opening analisys

  6. old voice was better but great lesson as always

  7. Thanks a lot for this Great TRAP! 😊👍♟️

  8. In the last variation, after d4 and as you recommended exd4, what if white doesn't recapture with knight but instead plays knight to g5. That game looks losing for black?

  9. Question. At 4:48 after queen capture on d5 wouldn't Knight on f2 to h3 have delivered checkmate in 1 given King is checked by both Knight and Bishop on c5 forcing King to h1 with rook e8 capturing rook on e1 checkmate???

  10. I am curious to know what accent is this?
    Sounds Egyptian to me lol

  11. Imprecisioni nella denominazione delle aperture…

  12. Welcome back Sensei❤ Want to learn Italian game Crash Course from your channel.

    Black is practically lost after 4.d4! exd4?! 5.e5!, which you fail to mention/analyse.
    4…fxe4 5.Nxe5 d5 6.Bb5 Qd6 7.c4! is miserable as well.

  14. Oh come on man why do you have to ruin the Italian it’s my favourite opening bruh
