  1. You ain’t lyin’ — you were AWESOME! It always seems to shock them when the Black Lion arrives. You played it very well!

  2. It was kinda windy where you were recording, hence why the audio is a bit disturbing to listen to. Just a hint to record somewhere inside next time.

  3. Another great game ! It is good to get outside even if it's tricky for microphones, you need a noise reducer ( sort of fluffy hat for the mike). Thanks for your explanations.

  4. So I learned the black lion as d6 nf6 nd7 e5 — the nd7 move was to block the endgame queen trade. I like how you showed your reasoning behind playing 2…nd7 first. With the way I play it I don't run into a lot of endgame scenarios BUT. I do get that bishop pin on the knight in like 99% of games & usually they take & I recapture with the bishop that I moved to e7 earlier. They also try the bishop and knight attack on f7 a lot and force me into castling sometimes…don't really wanna do that with the lion. Would love to see a video on your way of playing the opening and the thought process behind the move order. Good content! 👍
