A few months ago, I made a video on how to crush playing 1. e4 and gave various recommendations against Black’s openings in the French, Sicilian, Scandinavian, and so on. In this video, I analyze the Vienna Attack in full depth. It’s excellent for beginners, intermediates, and advanced players.

In 2023, you're not doing bad 2.38m subs.
watching in 2023. 2.38 mil subs
each time I watch this, I find something I missed – honestly video brilliantly done
Love you Gotham
What can you do if black plays f6 after I develop my knight
Okay now I just need to remember all these variations, wish me luck
@GothamChess in Jan 2023, you have 2.4M subscribers 21:40
It‘s not 2021 but your channel has 2.4 million subscribers.
first game with vienna i won lmao, 550 rating but doesnt matter
Hey levy it’s 2022 and you now have 2.4 mil subs 🎉
Wait so…. e4 e5 nc3 nf6 f4 d5 fxe5 Nxe4 Qf3 Nc6 Bb5 Bc5 then what
I'm watching January 2023 and from 200 subs to 2.41m 🙂
can they play nf6 then nc6 and the same things will happen?
I love ur accent so much
‘Nearing 100k’ in 2020. Now over 2 million subs in 2023. Crazy growth. Congrats @GothamChess! 22:00
15:56 woah woah woah
2023 and almost 2.5M o how you have grown
Whats the goal and theory
Lets go levy 2.4 mil!
Tried this 100 times and each time the bishop moves 2 after matching king pawn. I don’t get how to play that variation. Not often are they not just countering with bishop 2 move
If bishop takes check instead queen, what do you do?
2023: 2.5 mil subs…..
2.55 Milly from >200k 2yrs ago Congrats my guy! 👏
There is a nice trap with the pawn to g5 after you take and sac the knight. You use bishop to check king. King takes because if he doesnt its a linear checkmate with queen. Then you take f4 pawn with rook putting them in check again……. and again, they cannot move back to where they were or its another liner checkmate. So they play knight f6 to block king then you push your e pawn forward taking advantage of the pin on the knight, blacks most played move is bishop to e7 which is a blunder btw. Because after pawn takes black cannot stop an inevitable checkmate after queen h5 then advancing your e pawn will trap his queen in her hole and its time to resign for black. After queen e 5 check mate
Man that's crazy listening to you say that you're almost at 100k subs when it was only two years ago.. Meanwhile at the beggining of 2023 you have already 2,5 fucking million subs! That's insane.
VIENNA GAMBIT IS LETHAL JUST OBLITERATED MY OPPONENT
am i the only one who agrees that levy is the best chess content creator in the entire universe
17:10 and if they're not an alien they just watched your video
"I'm now nearing 100k [subscribers]". You're at 2.5 Million now Levy. So proud of you.
what if it at 11:28 the qxe5 instead of qxc2, just asking incase the opponent doesn't see qxc2
I don't use engines to study….I've got Levy.
Thanks for the great content. I watch and re-watch many of your videos.
Most beginners would play the copycat version which is at 14:47 so I would recommend studying the theories on it
Him being happy with 100k and now having 2.5million has made my day
this is a copied comment, just commenting so its on top for me when i revisit the video.

Anderssen defense? I see other videos on it, but would love to hear it in your teaching style.
