    George the 1000 comment "So"  is very simplistic He sounds like a good candidate to win the World Patzer Championship.

    Maybe George the 1000 could learn something by watching the video.

    Thanks for explaining the gambit concept. I now know why the term gambit is used with Anti Moscow.

    You have to watch the first video

    1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. Bg5 h6 6. Bh4 dxc4 7. e4 g5 8. Bg3 b5 

    See here black wins a pawn so this is a gambit, in the first video where 6.Bxf6 is played there is no pawn offer. Also compare this with the Junge, K variation where black captures the pawn immediately with 5...dxc4. It's very interesting stuff, although I am also new to alot of these ideas.

    One thing that I am not clear about the Anti Moscow Gambit is what "Gambit" is being offered.

    Can someone please explain this to me.

    1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. Bg5 h6 6. Bh4 dxc4 7. e4 g5 8. Bg3 b5 9. Ne5 Bb7 10. h4 g4 11. Nxg4 Nxg4 12. Qxg4 Qxd4 13. Qf4 Bb4 14. Rd1 Bxc3+ 15. Ke2 Qf6 16. Qc7 *

    Here u evaluate the position as "black is in very big trouble" and recommend 15...Qe5 instead (like what happened in the actual game).

    Why then does my engine recommend 15...Qf6 as the most accurate move? After 16.Qc7 Qe7 17. Qxe7 Kxe7 the position is roughly equal. How then is black in "big trouble" here?

    Apparently, 16...Ba5 as well as 16...Bxb2 are also playable here.

    At 10:50 you are discussing what you said is one of Nakamura's games

    1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. Bg5 h6 6. Bh4 dxc4 7. e4 g5 8. Bg3 b5 9. Ne5 Nbd7 10. Nxc6 Qb6 11. d5 Bb7 12. a4 a6 13. Be2 Bxc6 14. dxc6 Qxc6 15. e5 Nd5 16. axb5 axb5 17. Rxa8+ Qxa8 18. Nxd5 Qxd5 19.Qa1*

    However according to the F13 Livebook, in the actual game 16.0-0 was played, although 16.Nxd5 is the engines recommendation. After the moves that you gave, the engine suggests that white is actually losing. 19.Qa1 is infact a very serious game losing blunder.

    I wanna see videos on the Slav and delayed/meran from a black perspective. Please could you consider this?
