  1. Віктор Сергійович Мотузенко says:

    ROOK A6! if black take the rook, the pawn on b7 its a checkmate, if not take the rook, black has only bishop to move, black moves the bishop, and rook on a7 its a checkmate.

  2. I'll give everyone a hint, Ra6 for white is the first move on the last puzzle….You simply give me the 2nd 🤣…Great puzzle, took me a few minutes of thinking on that one.

  3. Those were all amazing puzzles and a great job by the host at making them both fun and educational.

  4. No, I didn't solve neither of those, but I really enjoyed the puzzles and the story wrapping them. Great video, my friend!

  5. Sacrifice the rook and push the pawn.

    pb7 takes rook
    white pb7#

    I love Morphy's puzzles. They look impossible but are deceptively simple.

  6. We have to take Rook to a6
    The black has 1 choise
    1.He can take rook by the pawn
    If he takes the pawn with pawn it would be check so he can't move so he takes the rook
    Then we can bring the white in b7
    And it is a beautiful check mate

  7. 0:27 Why are you suggesting to turn off subtitles? What if the audience can't speak english well? What if your accent is in the way of understanding you?

  8. Nice. I did NOT solve the problem.

  9. We can win the second puzzle if we move queen to B3 and in the next turns we move our king to her. The black have only one option – to move his king from B1 to A1 and opposite.

  10. 1) Ra6. bxa6
    B7 ##
    2) Ra6. Bishop will go anywhere
    And Rxa7##

  11. I think i know the last one, 1st move rook to a5, if black take rook push pawn up and mate the king with the pawn. since both bawn are black from forward movement and pawn on a7 can not take white pawn it has to move the black bishop away and rook take black pawn for check mate. Nice puzzle i didn't get the first two in the video

  12. The chess board that you see has a line written in 20% of the area, due to which the whole piece of the board is not visible, which is not fun to see.

  13. White to a6 then b7 pawn is forced to take the rook but move b6 to b7 is a stunning checkmate and thanks for your website brilliant it is helping me a lot

  14. "Turn off the subtitles for a better experience"
    Telling me that the video is better if I don't listen to what you're saying is an interesting form of self-deprecation.

  15. I don't play but if it's white to move on the first i would move Rook to H7. White can easily win the first one if black goes for the Queen. Take the pawn on b7 for a check and the king has to go to the a rank. move over for another check then when he moves back take the Queen. So black getting a Queen isn't helping if white plays right. (This is what I thought of playing as White). So white to move I would move the Rook to H7. Stops the Queen in it's tracks.

    Edit: After watching the answers to the first one, this is why I want to learn chess. I was so close to the right answer but I couldn't play it in my head far enough to get to the best solution.

    Edit 2: For the second one I'm stumped. I know how to get white a stale mate, so it doesn't lose. But I don't see any winning moves. What I could think of is, leave the pawn so he can move it up. His King is his only legal move now. Now to me this ends in a stalemate. But I'm sure there's a way. That's the only way I can think of any winning moves because if I take the pawn this is going to end in a stalemate.

  16. These made up "stories" only make the video unnecessarily longer, just get to the point

  17. rook to a6, black can either move the bishop out, then rook to a7# or capture the rook, and then pawn to b7#

  18. Wonderfully educational and awesome story teller.

  19. When the dad went to another room for the work call I got a yt premium ad that had a horror reactor say "DON'T GO IN THERE"

  20. No ,I definitely did not solve this , good to see it though.

  21. Interesting videos
    For 2nd position: Stockfish found the solution in less than 1 second

  22. Wow I already found it the mate in 2 the move was rook to a6 the idea is if black take the well then we push the pawn and checkmate and if any where bishop move we will take the a7 pawn with our rook then checkmate. I chose rook to a6 everyone see my chat and they will be wondering (why it only have rook to a6 why it doesn't work if we move the rook a2,a3,a4,a5 why are these move doesn't work?) Because then black can move the a7 pawn because we was blocking the a7 pawn.

  23. I did not solve it myself but I take great pride in the fact I clicked onto the idea the moment I saw the initial queen move.

  24. For the puzzle solution, the move is Ra6. If we move the rook anywhere else on the A file, black will push the pawn to a6 and create a fortress. If we move the rook to any other file, Black will capture the pawn on b6 and again it is a fortress. Capturing the a7 pawn doesn't help as bishop recaptures and again it is impossible to break in. So, we are left with Ra6, but the reason this works is because if bxa6, we have b7# where the pawn smothers the king to mate. Only other legal moves are bishop moves but as soon as bishop leaves b8, we have Ra7# as the rook is supported by the pawn on b6 and can't be captured.

  25. i suspect that the mistake most folks make with the thumbnail puzzle, puzzle 2 in the video is the assumption that they would have to capture all their opponents pieces instead of just the king

  26. I solved the father and son one but not the previous one

  27. Rook to a6. If pawn takes rook then pawn to b6 check and checkmate.
    And if black doesn't capture the rook then only move is to move the bishop and white gives check with the rook by taking the pawn on a7 and it is checkmate

  28. Why is the final position in story 1 not winning for white?

  29. Gee, if black loses from there, he sure is a poor player.

  30. The puzzle solve for white will be
    Ra6 Bc7 Ra7
    Ra6 b7xRa6 b7

  31. Rook-a6, black turns possible move of black pawn-a6 or bishops any where in both case black lose

  32. 8:27 ra6, if capture move pawn for mate, if bishop moves capture a7 with rook for mate
