  1. Huge fan of your Sicilian. Helped me learn to compete with my father. And honestly learn to love chess again. Keep going man cause you’re my go to when I wanna grow my chess game!!

  2. Old levy such a vibe, so innocent I would die for him

  3. Rock Climbing! Chess seems to help loads with sequence visualization, climbing move choice, and blitz chess is great for developing 'calmness under pressure'. Love your content thanks Gotham!

  4. I love the calm, cute, 'chess tutor Levi' of just two years ago.
    But I also love the frenetic, excited, impatient 'chess (UFC) commentator Levi of '22!
    I'll keep them both, thank you.

  5. the Nd6# is hilarious xD haven't seen that before

  6. Watching this in 2022…Levy has come so far.

  7. Been playing for a month. 788. The more I learn, the more I realize I know absolutely nothing

  8. This 11 minutes feels like hours.. Love watching your vids.. And for now.. I'll just focus on one opening (e4), and still it's information overload. It's fun that I do have the names of those moves I used way back as a child.

  9. I'm a mediocre player but I've been opening 90% of my games with white with e4 since I was a kid, and I recognize a lot of those patterns. Against the average amateur, it's pretty easy to improvise the rest of the opening based on their moves and end up in a pretty good position. Great flexibility and few obvious traps.

  10. When you “trap” the black queen on D4 it can still escape right? It’s not truly trapped. Can you verify?

  11. You speak too fast I don't have time to process everything…

  12. Know this is an older video, but if you happen to see this that would be amazing. What do you think about the scotch game and if it’s suitable for the beginner level?

  13. I don’t see why Vienna is so good. I played it last game against a 1000 player and he played the copycat variation but instead of Qf6 after Qg4 he played Nd4 which the engine says is losing for white pretty badly. Thoughts?

  14. Damn 2 year ago levy is way different from today levy

  15. I cant find the opening scores, can somebody help?

  16. on sicilian what do i do if d4 knight takes f3 knight?
    also should I take the knight?

  17. I'm a 1900 hundred player. I decided to learn e4 and was very bad at it. I used the analysis engine to learn e4 to a certain extent… I started winning a lot of games again.. after about 2 months of NOT studying my opening and just thinking I got it down.. I've started losing again more. Using the same concepts that just aren't working, but worked sometimes. Anyways, point is this video has given me a way better understanding on e4. Now I'ma go practice these ideas and principles. I suggest u others do the same.

  18. How is this the same man i watch on Twitch?? That guy's so zany!

  19. Which of your courses can I learn most about openings?

  20. Hey, he did a shout-out on Alehkine! Was looking to see if that got mentioned

  21. I don’t know about you guys … but i love his shirt :))))

  22. This is like my 1000th Gotham video I feel, and I thought, what am I going to learn in a video called e4? But there is a shocking amount of information packed into 10 minutes, geez!

  23. Mesquite, NV. My daughter and I are learning together.

  24. My favorite sport is booger flinging with a regulation dart, but the cheaters are really starting to make waves with there hidden buzzing machines!

  25. This is far and away the most informative 11 1/2 minutes chess video on the interwebs.

  26. I use your video on the Grand Prix vs. Sicilian to great success.

  27. I could feel my brain melting from having no idea what he means
