  1. Belgrade is capital of serbia and its called Whitetown bsc in Serbia we call it Beograd beo is white and grad means town. In Serbia its pronaunced beograd so u can say belegrad

  2. Budapest is so underrated (not just my nation) cuz after black squared bishop knight can give a rook queen fork and that is not that easy to spot below 1500

  3. The only game I ever played against Johnathan Schrantz came at a time when I was playing the French with black. Johnathan played the orthoschnapp gambit and absolutely crushed me. 😂

  4. They invented the intercontinental ballistic missile gambit

  5. It's two years later and I don't care. So, Belgrade is the capital of Serbia.

  6. everytime i see the blackburn shilling gambit i just hear "slide the queen and bait it"

  7. 8:20 its called belgrad (Beograd) gambit because in the serbian langage it is called "the white city" becasue it was the frist city serbs returned from the ottoman empire

  8. icelandic gambit deserves tons of tactics or very powerful

  9. Did the intermediate version of this ever get made? Or did they just do the all openings instead

  10. Rousseau Gambit is the best for anyone playing black under 2000

  11. Latvian gambit is the goat fr (ive never touched the latvian gambit)

  12. Did you ever hear about the Franco hiva gambit? I don't remember if I won or not, I played this a few game

  13. Imma be honest, when jumping from Gotham to Hikaru, it feels like going from Grade 6 to Grade 7. The setting just went from easy to hardcore.

  14. fastest chess game ever : (fisher – ??? (world championship i think)) : 1. c4 – resign XDDDD

  15. My school taught us the roy lopez, I taught the club the london and we got our first win in a decade lol

  18. London gambit : u gambit your wining chances.

  19. Elephant by the White Stripes is a great album, probably Jack White’s best

  20. There's another way to play the englund gambit where you then play d3 so when they take you bring the bishop out. That variation is probably b-a tier. Main line is trash though

  21. Me at 1800 2 and a half years later: I want to learn some new gambits😂

  22. I’m confident in the only person who’s the played the Kloosterboer gambit for more than 20 games

  23. How could they forget the infamous "BOTEZ GAMBIT"

  24. Alakhain sitting in his grave : you guys are dump as f, didn't remember the opening and GMs

  25. what about Cow opening
    *it was not invented that time 😂😂😂😂

  26. Eric is likely more offended that you didn’t rate the Stafford Gambit higher.

  27. YOU FORGOT BOTEZ GAMBIT THE QUEENNNN😂😂😂
