  3. This guy sounds like donut operator πŸ˜‚

  4. 7:13 why would the opponent not try take the bishop with pawn on h6?

  5. At 7:28 when you recommend bringing the white bishop out to g5, why wouldn't black simply move pawn to h6 to threaten the bishop?

  6. One of the best series made, totally worth to watch!

  23. I'm assuming that the queen's gambit doesn't work if black doesn't move its queen's pawn in the very beginning.

  24. 'For white the light-squared bishop is usually the most powerful bishop.' Why?
