  1. Puzzle2 took me only a second, rook to e8 and lose.

  2. The second puzzle reminds me of one old problem:
    "Find a position with material KNP vs kq, BTM White wins".
    There is only one solution and it may be found if one knows about that special Black Queen vs White King opposition.

  3. Those are two studies, created by a chess composer. β€œPuzzle” or β€œproblem” would be a bit of the common inaccuracy in the definition. Beautiful and tricky! Thank you.

  4. Gotta be honest, I found most of the moves in the first puzzle except Rb3.

  5. 2 short problems to show your friends that you have no friends!

  6. In the first puzzle. why doesn't bishop d1 work instead of king a2? the next move we take the pawn, likely, loosing the bishop later on. But rook is enough to checkmate.

  7. Those were the insane and brilliant and easiest puzzles.

  8. I solved them all.
    I solved all the moves.

  9. The first thing I thought was where is Nelson, what happened and who is this guy? πŸ€“
    I'm wearing πŸ‘“ too

  10. very good puzzles with few pieces

  11. Good puzzles, but they seem to depend on a king being in one of the most limiting positions on the board, in the corner where their possible moves are very limited. So a further question is why is a king in such a location? I know the puzzle sets it up there as an assumption, but why in a game would it end up there?

  12. First one is very simple … Second is not …

  13. Solution for the first puzzle: Rxd1
    Solution for the second puzzle: Nxh8
    GAME OVER… 😎 (ChatGPT taught me chess)

  14. Dear Nelson, Glasses+Frontlight = suboptimal 🀩
    Nice Problems!

  15. Didn't see the first one but caught the second one

  16. Me too 🀧😞 foggy head is making my elo suffer too πŸ™ˆ

  17. You look like an anime protagonist with the reflection in your glasses πŸ˜‚

  18. 1st problem, after Kd2, Bg4. If Kd3, Bf5 skewering the pawn.

  19. Dang.

    Those glasses now make Nelson look twice as tough, powerful, and smart at chess than he was without the glasses.

  20. Thought I'd clicked on to a video of Joe90 by mistake πŸ˜‰

  21. My first move in the second puzzle was Knight to c7. πŸ˜‚

  22. I like the 2nd puzzle, it was black to move & stalemate!

  23. Haha "Worst case scenario is a checkmate". In that case what is a best case scenario ?

  24. This voice is good πŸ‘πŸ₯³
    Glasses is good for protection against looking at constant fire!

  25. In puzzle 1: What about bishop c4 instead of white king a2 because if black king moves to c3 we can still play rook b3+ and if black takes bishop we bring king to b2 and we win if black king goes back to d2 we give rook d3 check and we still win forcing black king to moves infont of pawn or away from pawn.

  26. First puzzle: when the black king moves to D2 why not white bishop to D1? The pawn is pinned.

  27. 6:15 "of course, we are going to win with rook and knight and king".

    you severely underestimate my powers 😭

  28. On the 2nd puzzle, I initially said Qxd5 because a queen vs rook endgame is usually a win… then I realised it was WHITE to move.

  29. Loved the second puzzle!!❀ I didn't see the fork idea.

  30. Cool puzzles, Nelson. Hope your health is good.

  31. can you do a colle system in depth vid nelson? i thinks its pretty underated

  32. 05:30 Nelson: "This is a good rule for beginners: if you're worried about stalemates, always play a check and you'll never have stalemate. Worst case scenario, it's checkmate." This is really brilliant. Never omit a check, it might be a checkmate! πŸ™‚

  33. I solved the first puzzle, but on the second one i thought that horse f6 was the solution
