  1. Hey Nelson we didnโ€™t look queen to D3?

  2. This is cool chess puzzle

    White Ke4 Qe7 Qe8
    Black Ke1 pawns d2, e2, f2

    White to play and win, but what is best first move?

  3. Very cool position and nice explanation.
    In my opinion it was not so hard to figure it out because there are not so many pieces on the board, but it's still cool.

  4. I recently got interested in chess and love your channel. I have a question though, at 4:33 the white king moves to c3. What happens if black moves queen to d3. It seems that this will eliminate any advantage white will have. Am I missing something about this?

  5. Dumb question here, what happens if black underpromoted?

  6. That's a nice puzzle. Though, with the variation chosen for the win, the promoted pawn could still promote to Knight, which attacks the Queen, and the King could not go to Kc3 which prevents that variation from working.

  7. The main thing I took from this video is itโ€™s almost a certainty that not a single person has ate at all the restaurants in New York City – even if they have lived their their whole lives.

  8. I knew you had to play Kc3 at some point and that you have to cover the checks from their queen with our queen but i was stuck if it was Qe2, Qf2, Qf3, Qe4 3:50

  9. What if black at 2:49 does not promote to a queen, but to a knight a blocks checkmate on a2?

  10. I love winning by the underpromotion to a knight. I did it once and achieved a smothered checkmate! Felt amazing. The fork idea in this video is even more clever.

  11. I want a video on topic that what to do in endgame if we are having advantage like a rook for a bishop or rook for knight or queen for rook what i can do in this situation
    Most times I am in lead but i cant finish in win and game draws ๐Ÿ˜ข

  12. too bad Nelson doesn't compete in Fide World Cup. I'd love to see him there. Maybe next year?

  13. โคโค Love these chess puzzles

  14. Like others say: love the statistics in the opening. Still working on my endgame so not so good on this one but got a couple of the questions right. Here to learn. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. When you say black is in zugzwang, how about Qd6+?

  16. So, there is over 8000 restaurants in NY ๐Ÿ˜€? (Even not counting how many new ones appears during that 22,7 years) Or are you saying that there is over ~370 new restaurants each year ๐Ÿ™‚? In this second case, there is no guarantee. It can be created 1 new restaurant on day 1, you go there, but zero on days 2, 3 and then 5 new restaurants on day 4, so on day 2 you won't find new opened restaurant to go to.

  17. At 2:52 couldn't black just grab a knight to check and force your queen to take the knight and then black king takes the queen, Black wins?

  18. Yep you can't pass a round on either chess (international chess, counter to Chinese chess) or the Chinese chess. Therefore a zugzwang may happen. This is different from GO chess.

  19. What about 2.Qe4 instead of 2.Qf2? Does it not work with the same idea?

  20. Another solution… this was the most obvious to me
    W: Q f2-g1
    B: P d2-d1 (forced, doesent matter what piece black chooses, always loose)
    W: Q g1-g5
    B: Q d1-d2 (forced) OR S d1-e3 (forced) (assuming S, doesent rly matter)
    W: K d3-e3
    B: K e1-b1
    W: Q g5-e3 (takes S)
    B: P f5-f4 (forced, thretens W Q)
    W: Q e3-b7, check
    B: K b1-b1,b2,c1 (b1,b2 is check-mate next move, only posssible move c1)
    W: Q b7-b2, check
    B: K c1-d1 (forced)
    W: K c3-d3
    B: K d1-e1 (forced, moving P next move check-mate)
    W: Q b2-c2 takes last B P … check-mates black in 2 moves

  21. It is obvious there is only one move white can play.

  22. My man literally gave us a random informations at the beginning.

  23. If queen mate on b2 and if promote knight than qa1 mate

  24. What if instead black promotes to a queen, black promotes to a knight with a check to king I guess.

  25. A another good 'un! Thanks, Nelson!

  26. love your videos, very interesting, please keep it up

  27. At 4:16, instead of promoting the pawn, Black King should move to b1.

  28. Very good puzzle, I enjoied a lot.

    By the way… "Zugzwang" is pronounced more as "Tsuugtsvang".

  29. ืžื•ื˜ื™ ืžื–ืจื—ื™ says:

    Black Can again choos a knight instead of a queen 2:51

  30. I love the anecdotes at the start of the video lol, keep it up!

  31. How would Queen to A7 work at the start?

  32. Any Martin video on other channel? Great videos btw

  33. I love the random facts at the beginning of the videos!
