  1. I think the title "Illegal Queenside castling???" suits this video even better

  2. Every newbie can easly be seen in the comment section saying that this was an illegal castling move

  3. guys whats the nicest chess app in facebook? lets play. 😁

  4. It's not a very cunning trap just cheap😐

  5. I have one doubt.that was how can he castle there was rook check naa..🤔

  6. Shoot, that happened to me. How nice I was also a piece down 🙂

  7. Suren, i am telling u because i have spent some time in this openning. Though i am a kid, and have around 1200-1100 elo, me and my coach (he has arround 2000-2050) have figuered out that after black plays Bc5, white gains some advantage with Be3, and then black should play Bb6, because after Qf6 then simply c3, and then white fianquetoes the light square bishop, brings the B Knight on d2, castles king's site and has an excellent game.
    But maybe Knight takes c6 is better than Be3. I really haven't figuered it out after playing the scotch game for a long time. I just suggest Be3.
    Also that was a really good video!

  8. I might be the player on dark side because I usually lose the games in this style. Also I am an unknown player. 😂

  9. I always loved this trick. I first came across this game it about thirty years ago and I'm STILL waiting for an opportunity to use it. Suren, you are right, it is very rare!

  10. Great miniature Suren, although I can beat both this guys! Also 0:35 what's that noise?

  11. Those who are saying the move was illegal, go to chess.com, and play the PGN given in the description. The move legal and stockfish recommends that.

  12. I remember my first time castling Queen side, 5th grade in Chess Club, and the kid wanted to fight after school cause he said I was cheating, same kid called me a cheater the first time I got him with en passant as well lmmfao
