  1. You are really such a likable Guy and very knowledgeable about Chess thanks for the info

  2. LMAO, I remember when I was a beginner and has no idea about opening names and openings overall. I THOUGHT I INVENTED THIS OPENING. Well, I was like 10.


  4. Earlier I used to lose all the matches. But after this opening, I went from 400 to 700 and still going forward

  5. Thanks. I'm an intermediate player that uses both the KI and the Pirc.
    I do 2-3 mugs of java in the morning. A lot of tea in the winter.

  6. Using the KI for both black and white. Still working to get in enough games to really stretch its legs. Coffee, black, about a half pot stretched out over the morning hours. Picked that up in my mid 50's. Strange, eh? 🤔

  7. Supurb overview. I've been working on the KI for over a year and you taught me a ton in just ten minutes! Thank you! Subscribed!

  8. I played this opening, I lost some games while trying to learn how to play it but then I got to 500 elo. I know it isn't much but it's the first milestone I wanted to achieve

  9. Only 1 / days, any 1 of the tea or coffee can do,
    Nice explanation though.

  10. take the pawn, when they take back, trade queen's, the king is forced to take because if Knights takes d8 then there's nxe5

  11. Seems like mastering Caro kann for the most lower >1000 for e4 and having the kings Indian for a less common d4 might not take too much time to learn (kings Indian) as it seems on d4 there tends to be less variation. Correct me if I am wrong

  12. Thanks! Black Coffee, only 1 or 2 cups in the AM 🙂

  13. I’ve been using this in blitz for a long time without realising it was an actual proper opening. It’s a good one for blitz as white as you can get a lot of moves in a short time without too many threats or attacks from your opponent.

  14. 1:11 What if the black pawn still comes to e4 and forces a pawn exchange? The d5 pawn is still coming to e4, threatening my knight, right? So how does white pawn to d3 help?

  15. 6:07 I really struggle against white doing this, and that’s odd considering I’m a blackmar diemer junkie.

  16. Japanese Matcha green tea is the best for high L-Theanine content for relaxation and focused mind

  17. Please make a video on Italian game
    Please 🥺 please 🙏

  18. I prefer both coffee and tea but i dont drink at all

  19. It's really helping me a lot bro cool more power 🎉😊

  20. Iam a beginner and iam only playing king's indian ))

  21. tea, and on a good day, maybe two cups

  22. Coffee and tea…. 1 cup of coffee in the morning and 1 cup of tea in the evening 😂

  23. 3 cups of milk tea / day

  24. Coffee or tea?
    Toffee every time. 1 teabag 1 teaspoon of instant coffee. It’s utterly vile, and you’ll never be asked to make either tea or coffee again. Check. Mate.

  25. As a beginner I play this setup but they always crush me in the middle game.

  26. 1 cup of coffee before a long work shift.

  27. Coffee, but with hot chocolate added. Childish, I know
