  1. @11:29 You do not have to play D5 and lose your rook because Qd4+ picks up the bishop and the knight

  2. just tried this out and first game went exactly how you predicted it to go piece by piece, love learning new stuff from you… Thank you!!

  3. A good chess teacher once told me to PP on the PP :

    on the

    till this day , that phrase always help me in every single of my games
    thank you teacher

  4. Thanks I like the way you present the information.

  5. 18:39 "Gotham chess does not condone violence to opponents" hits different these days. Literally

  6. This video is such an inspiration that I boost my winning rate from 50% to 60% while rising from somewhere 1100 to 1200+ after simply watching it twice.😍

  7. Liver King: I like mine raw but okay guys, you do you.

  8. I love the disclaimer on violence against opponents 😂

  9. the traxler counterattack disliked this video

  10. I feel like everyone comes to this video after getting hit by one fried liver too many and wants to learn how to make others suffer as they have.

  11. I’ve been watching this video for 2 years

  12. is it possible to combine the vienna gambit with the fried liver? I noticed that in both of them, they have to play NC6, so i thought you may be able to move yourself NB5 and, if they move the knight, play fried liver, but if they don't, play Vienna gambit

  13. im gonna take a wild guess that this opening was named by a mexican player(s). Let me explain my wild thought process:
    In Mexico, the "scholars mate" is usually called "al pastor", meaning shepherd (where black is the sheep), and since (as a beginner) the best way to block/push the queen away is Nf6, its a weirdly natural thing to use the knight instead, thus linking these two openings closely together.
    But now to the naming thing: "al pastor" is ALSO a very common Taco topping, just as "fried liver" is (although a bit less common, just like this opening). The name is basically a dad joke, reserved only for the mexican community.

  14. In Army AIT in 1999, I decided to start hustling the barracks, playing $20 games but just *barely* winning them and throwing in blunders and slips to try to draw out an arrogant challenger who'd hopefully get overconfident because of what they've seen. After a few days of playing maybe ten guys, a new face appeared at CQ where I played the games. He proudly proclaimed that he had been captain of his high school chess club and that he'd go easy on me.

    First game, I set up FLA, but then blundered out of closing the deal and forced a trade down to a race and won… which gave him false hope that he could capitalize on the perceived lack of knowledge and ability from me after switching colors, he said I got lucky to have the tempo to win that one. So I played Petroff and sacrificed N immediately, walking into the "trap" and using the apparent blunder as an excuse to decimate his KS structure and prevent Castling by exploiting his cocky greed at the "free" material. And of course I immediately closed the center, routed the other N and sprang my KS pawns, and dogwalked him into what LOOKED like a lucky desperation mate caused by pure luck and chance after a blunder.

    He was starting to fume about me having BS luck, so I skipped the rest of the hustle and exploited his anger … and offered him Queen's Odds for a hundred bucks. After heartily laughing at me and calling me a fool, he eagerly accepted, believing that HE was hustling ME. Based on the first two games, he obviously expected me to try to play open and fast from the start… and instead I locked it up and played extremely closed, preventing him from offering or forcing any trades, getting into a very complicated middlegame trying to set up every ridiculous Theory position possible… and then I saw it… all it took was saccing a N and a B… I could force one, not both, but if he blindly took just to simplify quickly thinking that was the easy win… I'd have it. So I "blundered" N for Qx a free Knight on b7… then over on KS… Bx+… and he didn't see it , but it didn't matter, because it was forced from there… KxB… Rx+ (protected by my other B)… and then I ran the biggest windmill in the history of chess, wiping out nearly every piece he had, finishing with RxQ discovered +, at which point he stopped dead, looked up from the board, and stared at me in silent fury. He then tipped his K, stood up, took the money out of his wallet, threw it down, turned, and left. And he never challenged me to play again.

  15. This doesn't work against the computer

  16. So I was doing this attack earlier and it was going according to plan until my opponent played left knight to d4 in the position 1:48. Does anyone know what you should do in that situation?

  17. watching this video after watching the ludwig chess boxing event, his comment at 18:39 lol
    have to add, after watching the event, i keep getting chess content in my suggested, never watched chess youtube before, but now i cant stop.

  18. I just wanted to mention you maybe condone violence to your opponent. In the chess/boxing match! 😆♟🥊

  19. What do I do if they block the check with their queen?

  20. wasnt helpful at all, everyone i played was either too smart for this or too dumb for it

  21. It looks so fun to play but King’s pawn is just so gross to play personally

    Literally my entire repertoire is London, Scandinavian, French, and the KID/pirc. I’m allergic to moving the King’s pawn in the opening, but I’m still probably going to learn it because it’s such a fun opener lol

  22. In 4:21. Please check again sir because computers are preferring Re1 over Ne4

  23. 2:56
    After black King takes white Kn and white Qn checks. Black Qn blocks and brings out black Bishop if white doesn't trade. What is white's next approach?

  24. When ur opponent plays every black move here and u win in 1 minute 🫠

  25. What happens if my opponent doesn’t play that logical

  26. 6:50 but what if black moves his queen to d7 ?
    11:16 what if he moves hes king to g1 and then he knight to d3 (if hes knight was still in e5)

  27. just used this to beat someone 50 elo above me! Works great!!!

  28. Thank you for this Gotham, I am getting better at chess now.

  29. You were never a beginner at chess unless you fell for this at least once

  30. Got this on the first game I tried it at 1600 elo. 100% accuracy, man I'm getting banned.

  31. I need help, i cant beat 700 Elo Players but ive beaten all the intermediate bots which are like 1300

  32. My opponents: just falls for the fork at the beginning:

  33. Finally, I got the attack to work!!!! I got a checkmate and 100% accuracy lmao
