  1. You're the one that taught people this opening…. idk why people play this but your right it truly is free elo, for me.

  2. I dont.even need to watch the rest of this video. This is basically go to opener. I have used this so much I know everything that can and most likely will happen . Sometimes someone does something unexpected and gets themselves mated early as heck hahaha. I dig the queen side castle because it's auto attack battery to punish someone who os acting extra silly
    But now I know what it's called and I cam sound fancy
    I was calling it.the chicken noodle soup because that's what I was eating when I started using it lol

  3. Wow he didn't sac the knight for.the queen??????? I have that chance its.so.long knight. Thank you for your service but . . . Your last mission is a kamikaze mission. You will definitely not make it back but you will be remembered forever by your king and be survived by your bishop wife and little pawn baby boy. We will make sure as he progresses through the ranks that he is promoted to knight just like his daddy was.
    My rule of thumb is normally……F*** your queen. Unless I have mate regardless lol

  4. I actually accidentally found this by myself while playing at 900 to 1000 elo now im 1200 and i always play this opening

  5. I might be wrong but wasn't at 19:07, you could mate with the queen?

  6. thanks, this gambit got me from 500 elo to 501 elo.
    Absolutely recommend

  7. My friend at work never takes any gambit. 😆 he hit me with the beyers. You didn't bring that one up

  8. With this gambit, I will finally beat Magnum Carlen.

  9. If you just want some quick traps, I have investigated with 2. d5. Computer hates it, but my opponents do too

  10. 20:01 I think Levy could've played Rad1, black can't take the queen with the pawn because it's pinned.

  11. Im not the only one that got an ad that said “hey you must be watching a Gotham chess video” right

  12. I started playing this without even noticing no wonder why I won every game I played with it 🙂

  13. Any openings for 1500+? Lol enough of this 1000 elo stuff

  14. This happens when streamers start having millions of subs , clickbait all the way! Money are so tempting! Make chess great again!

  15. Bro this Gambit is sooo op that 65% times the opponents fall to my trap

  16. Why didn't Gotham do Bishop d6 at 21:04? He does a discovered check and takes the Queen.

  17. Lucky subscribe who play game will h you 🥰🥰🥰🥰

  18. 20:54 what was wrong with Qb5(white) after black moves his rook. That way you stop knight move and queen move.

  19. I like waiting to see what side my opponent attacks, and then i castle the exactly opposite way.

  20. A good surprise weapon against the Scandinavian!

    1.e4…d5
    2.d4!

  21. I love your gambit videos! You really help me to be better in chess. Thank you.

  22. The line where you take back the pawn with the queen is actually the best one, recommended by Diemer himself (i recommend looking up his games using this opening, amazing stuff). It's super aggressive and there are a ton of traps black can fall into easily in just like, 10 moves. I think if you're gonna play the blackmar-diemer you might as well go all in.

  23. I see The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, I play Hübsch Gambit 🙂

  24. I was playing that without knowing it's a gambit 😶

  25. Levy, if you see this and you agree with it could you please continue this series and do it with commenters suggesting weird and wacky openings for you to teach

  26. When I learn this I wont play it, I will use it against the scandi defense because its really annoying (1. e4 d5 2. d4 idk what they will play)

  27. The gnames Levy gives to his opponent is funny. " Unfortunate opponent"

  28. At 23:51 is it not checkmatee if queen moves to f7? Levy hasn't said anything about it during or after the game which is weird

  29. goddam levy that hoodie looks good on you my man,i think black is your color

  30. The way I like to play against this as black 2.c6 and change it into a caro-kann. I hate queens pawn openings.

  31. My opponent instantly played e6 and make it French defence 😂😭

  32. If you are low elo, this gambit in the first moves are great. Your opponent will just think" Me TaKE PAWNSSS

  33. you said free elo, but you didn't say for what side

  34. "free elo with this gambit!!"
    proceeds to almost lose to a 1400

  35. This is my main opening for last 8 years and i never play anything but it , brilliant , i even invented my own variations , it took me to 1700 from 1200 but as i said , it took me 8 years to do so
