Let's learn screen-by-screen:

* Giuoco Piano pronunciation: “JOKE-o Pee-AH-no” http://www.chess-poster.com/english...

* White mustn't fall for the Blackburne Shilling Gambit (a.k.a Kostic Gambit): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLG... 3...Nd4?! is dubious. Again, White should NOT capture the free Black pawn(s).

* Swedish TV-program "World Chess News" - Episode 226: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeM...

* Mostly 4.c3 Classical, then a bit of 4.d3 Pianissimo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI-...

* Classical Tricks for White - ...d6 before ...Nf6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TX...

* Moeller Attack misspelled, but the analysis is good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRo...

* Look familiar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rX5...

* FIDE master says it's just a draw - read the notes on the link page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6L...

* Maybe the 4.c3 Classical variation is not so dominant? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xip... Are you preparing to defeat humans or computers? If you know more, and see more, you can defeat humans with preparation. Defeating a computer depends upon what level of programming it's using.
