  1. Didnโ€™t get any any right moves after that

  2. Anyone remembers that the second puzzle is from an older video of Nelson?

  3. I felt so proud of my self
    I solved the 2nd puzzle completely by myself

  4. The first study is not correct. Actually, if the black tries to lock itself for a stalemate, it would be mated in few moves, as all engines correctly find. Still, the black will be mated, but if the black plays King in B5 the study loses significance.

  5. Wait where did the chess board come from? Is the chess puzzle a dream or some other film ish kinda scene?

  6. fisherman's about to die and he asks for a chess puzzle -_-

    At 5:26 black can try to trick white by playing " Rb8 " and hoping that white takes and get queen or rook , that would be stalemate . But there are 2 ways for white to win than , first would be to take rook and promote to bishop , and second would be to play " Nb3+ " to force rook to move and get queen or get out of stalemate trap , take rook and promote pawn to queen or rook . Great puzzle !

  8. On the first it's actually possible for black to force win after knight promotion

  9. In the first puzzle, what happens if after h8 promotion into the knight, black plays a6 instead of a5? We wait with a5 until f black pawn is dead, or a white pawn is promoted to a queen. But if we get a second white knight, we never seal on a5.

  10. For the first puzzle, if it is a6 instead of a5, it would be a draw

  11. But instead of taking the rook go Nh3+ and then take the rook 10:39

  12. 11:39 didn't mention that the move Nb3+ fails because the rook capture is with a check.
    leading to a draw.
    even if it's obvious, I wanted someone to mention that because if the king was in another rank that would have been a proper line as well
    because Queen vs Rook on empty board is usually a win.

  13. what happens in first puzzle if black after knight promotion don't trap their king with a5 yet but play a6?

  14. white wins
    ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…โค๐Ÿ˜…โค๐Ÿ˜…โค๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  15. That would be so funny to me if fisherman watching this video.

  16. 10:25 you are wrong, becaze white can do the move: knife to b3 check, and it's no mader if the king move to a2 or if the rock eat the knife, black can't doing the plane do you tell, and iven if black take the knife with the rock and them doing a check, after this check, him can't doing more check's,becazethe white king move to c3, and him can't stoping white to primoting a kwin.

  17. 5:28 , you can actually stop the pawn with the black rook to b8 because if the pawn promotes to a queen/rook , it will be draw by stalemate

  18. This is fake he already uploded a video about this puzzle by luberkin

  19. 2:09 if black doesn't play b5 but a5 first, if you get a knight, king goes out for a hunt. If you get a queen, black forces stalemate

  20. 2:38 black could have moved pawn to a6 not a7 and then there would be a stalemate threat

  21. Hey I got the first one and some of the second one! Really great studies – who are they by?

  22. Why cant I see the first รฉpisode of this story? ๐Ÿ™

    Okay my elo is 350 so this is probably really stupid but at 2:56 what if you played:
    1. Kc1 g4
    2. Kd2 g3
    3. Qf1 g2
    4. Qa1#
    Why doesn't this work? Someone explain plz ๐Ÿ˜ญ
    Edit: Oh shit it's black's turn I just realized ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  24. Wow that puzzle really boosted my thinking and premoving.

  25. I didn't realize that Chess can save your life.
