    Hey quality lesson man.  Thanks for contributing!

    I'm pretty sure your analysis of 5...Bg4 is missing some things. I think I would be quite happy to see black play that move. You see, this doesn't really stop the attack at all. In fact you are giving him another motive - a hanging bishop. 5...Bg4 is answered with 6.f3 and now he has two pieces under attack. Instead of moving the c6 knight to a5 and attacking the bishop, black must now contend also with an en prise bishop: 6...Na5 is followed with 7.Qe2 defending on c4 and attacking e5. This is no good for black because he is losing any of the possible exchanges. If he retreats from g4, the knight falls on c6 and the attack on f7 is revitalized. If he takes with the knight on d5, then 8.Qxe5+. If he blocks with the Q, the queens are exchanged and then the bishop on g4 falls. If he blocks with the bishop, 9.Qxg7, forcing 9...Rf8 and the rook is lost with 10.Nxa7, plus the bishop will still fall after 10...Nxc4 11. Nxf8 Bxf8 12.Qxg4. If he takes with 7...Nxc4, the queen recaptures and when he retreats the bishop, the e pawn advances and that f7 motive is still strong.

    So next time someone moves the bishop out, try unleashing this on them!

    For some reason I haven't found any mention anywhere of black not capturing with the knight and instead playing exd5 Bg4. Whenever I try this series of attacks my opponent always seems to play Bg4, attacking my vulnerable queen and essentially forcing the trade of queens or making me lose tempo by back tracking my knight or bishop and allowing the pin, also preventing the queen from going to f3. Is this not covered anywhere because it's unsound and I just don't see it?

    yes Na5 is better and the main line however it is a gambit which must sacrifice a pawn after Bb5+

    Thank you! Thank you! I have seen many videos on the Fried Liver Attack, including GM Boris Alterman's very long video series, and I must say, you have brought a fresh perspective, with new ideas and concepts that I have not heard before in this well known opening! That's saying a lot about your great teaching, I hope. Very cool. Keep up the great work, and please make more of these types of videos for beginners. You made my day! Smile

    Thanks for the video! I had a fun time analyzing what happens after white plays Kg3 following the bishop sac and ...Ng5+ (13:30 in the video). A lot of interesting tactics there... :-)
