  1. What about e4 e6 c4 on the second move?I cant play d5 now

  2. I have so much trouble with all the variations… are there games that are recommended to study this opening? I find myself so overwhelmed by all the possible moves

  3. I've tried the French defence.
    How do you stop white from Checking with the white square bishop on his third move?
    (I use one of those annoying chess algorithms that never varies it's moves. Good for practice, but bad, if you're trying something specific)

  4. after watching this vid, i was motivated to play chess. ended up getting checkmated twice before winning by a guy basically moving his pieces like his magnus carlsen praying he did the right move and resigning

  5. Oof, only if u had made the video 21 seconds longer, I would have become an expert

  6. the french defence is also sometimes referred to as "resigning"

  7. U talk fast . Be specific instead of rapid talk u get nothing usefull of

  8. "Might confuse your opponents"
    Bro It will confuse Me

  14. Favorite genre of music? Any random thing to try and get more audience engagement

  15. Is there any opening like French for d4? Like d4 e6 c4 d5?

  16. I have discovered lessons on YouTube for soprano opera singing but I also like jazz as my mum left me with a jazz band to mind me when I was a baby. Music and chess go together .

  17. So.. i just went to play the French.. i unlocked an achievement for playing the alapin sicilian. Interesting

  23. Gospel followed by John Williams. Best musician since King David.

  24. white should learn the nzi attack belgium gambit

  25. Ludovico Einaudi. "Primavera" is a good song by the world-renowned pianist. "Life" is also another good tune.
