    00:00 Best Chess Opening to Beat Beginners & Intermediates

    00:14 Scotch Game chess opening for White

    01:05 90% of players make this opening mistake

    02:27 Proof: 15+ MILLION players make this opening mistake

    04:00 Mainline: 5…d6

    05:20 If Black doesn't play 4…Nxd4

    06:28 Puzzle of the day: Can you find the winning move?

  2. Scotch is so poisonous and tricky, I always have bad times against Scotch so, Thank you for your information

  3. Kf7, black Knight captures, Rf8, black king captures and then Rd8 check mate

  4. I really appreciate your content, Igor! I started playing chess in June and have made such tremendous improvements since finding your channel!

  5. Ne7+….. Then it mates 😊

    If Kh8, then Rxf8+ mate

    If Nxe7, Rxf8+, Kxf8 then Rd8+ (mate) 😊

  6. That is a good video and really a good opening for intermediate players.

  7. Mate in 3
    Check with night
    Black night takes
    Check with rook
    King takes
    Rook d8 check mate

  8. Ne7+ Nxe7(if Kh8 Rxf8#) Rxf8+ Kxf8 Rd8#

  9. Ne7+. If Kh8 Rxf8#. If Nxe7 Rxf8+ Kxf8 Re8#

  10. I've missed the correct continuation in quite a few puzzles where the key move eliminates an escape square for the opposing king – at least when a check is not involved. When a move seems prohibited because it appears to give your opponent a piece free of charge, ask yourself (as Sam Shankland suggests) "What if I play that move anyway?"

  11. Dude this sucks. You showed only one example but it’s very rare other players play like this. Unsubscribed.

  12. Haha total bullshit. Pawn d6 is this a scam

  13. The answer to the puzzle is 1. Ne7+ Nxe7 2. Rxf8+ Kxf8 3. Rd8 mate.

  14. Puzzle solution: Ne7 check, knight takes knight, then Rook takes rook on f8 check, forces the king to move forward to f8, then rook to d8 checkmate

  15. Ke7 check. Black knight captures Kxe7. Rd8

  16. If Bishop to C5 – what do? Where's that video

  17. I really love your videos and mato jelic

  18. This continues to be useful, effective, well-communicated instruction, especially since it is terms of our typical school or club opponent. But …. I miss your cat !!

  19. Ne7, Nxe7, Rxf8+, Kxf8, Rd8 checkmate or Ne7+, Kh8, Rxf8 checkmate

  20. aight im one of those 15 million human who played it wrong lol

  21. Nxd4 may be bad for Black – but it's hardly the end of the world.
    1.e4 …
    2. Ke2!!

    That's how you crush Black!!

  22. I want your channel to get so much bigger, Igor.

    Yeah, im sure ill lose a lot more games because everyone else is better too but you are an excellent teacher (which many strong players are not) and i think your style of active, aggressive play is so good for improving at chess.

  23. At minute 1.57 you glitch a wrong move πŸ˜… so the check on the king issnt ther

  24. Tried it against 1400s twice, didn’t work 😒
