Queen g3#

9. @bobintampa8570 says:

Iâ€™m fairly new to chess, but I believe that there are 2 solutions: QB7# or QC7#. Btw, I love your videos!!!

10. @greatwolf. says:

Managed to solved all of them. The wrong colored bishop I think I've seen before or something very similar probably from Finegold. That's probably why I was able to solve it relatively quickly.

11. @saharanpunit7701 says:

Qb3

12. @TestowyAP1 says:

In second puzzle how can you know that king or rook did not move yet so you are still allowed to make a castle?

13. @jay1735 says:

Cannot checkmate in 1 move.

14. @ednoham4999 says:

second position is also not a legal position. there is no possible legal black's last move !!

15. @papai039 says:

Bishop h2

16. @papai039 says:

Dude, is there a mate in one or are you trolling us?

17. @hesar1975 says:

Qb3 is a solution for checkmate in 1

18. @jammetortiz808 says:

can you cover some desperado tactics? very few channels cover it

19. @Single2007 says:

Qb3#

20. @jukeboyxmuffins1312 says:

Nc7#

Hello,
I am a player rated 2000 Elo Fide What is the best book you would recommend to improve my level

22. @wwVisions says:

23. @marcoantoniomoralesbeyugo8043 says:

Lot of thanks, Igor. I guess the solution is Qb3#. IsÂ´nt it?

24. @supersentaiultimatepower says:

25. @papai039 says:

By the way, I was so busy solving the puzzle that I didn't realize I had to thank Igor for the work he is doing. Igor, my man thank you for the thing you are doing.

26. @shreenikeathan547 says:

Rg8

27. @forcabrasil6128 says:

Qb3#

28. @senjirinjesutofunmi2773 says:

Just move the queen to C7

29. @erikthompson3264 says:

Qb3# for the last puzzle

30. @ncjohnnyg says:

What about bishop g1 to h2?

31. @davincigaming60 says:

Queen to B3

32. @sledupub155 says:

Bh2 is checkmate!!

33. @VinothKumar-fe2gs says:

Qc7

34. @nguyenlam857 says:

Qb3 mate

35. @simongideon1343 says:

I see three checkmates in one. Qb3#, Qb7# & Qc7#

36. @amitnanda8444 says:

Qb7++

37. @rosiefay7283 says:

1:36 I'd attack this one from the other end. Where is the knight aiming for? Only then can you figure where it should try to be on its penultimate move, and so on back to the start. There's no point in finding legal moves for the first turn if you can't judge which of them are useful.

6:34 Qb3# the bishop can't take because it's pinned and the queen can't interpose

39. @odi9954 says:

Qb3 and Rxg8 is mateâœ…

40. @soleilmoluh5666 says:

Easy!!!! Queen to B3

41. @x3r0prime45 says:

Qb3# the bishop pins the queen but the rook pins the bishop, the knights are both defended by the bishops and guard c1 and c2 and unlike the other forced mates the black queen cannot block to make it mate in 2 instead of 1.

42. @athiengmach5159 says:

Queen captures the rook and that's a checkmate

43. @electricmaster23 says:

Have you seen this one? 3k4/8/7p/2p1p1pP/1pPpPpP1/1P1P1P2/N7/2K5 w – – 0 1

Itâ€™s a composition I made in 2017.

44. @jamesmunson385 says:

There are two ways to win in one move, one is Qb7, and another one is Qc7

45. @cellortisorvitzorg4703 says:

Bonus puzzle: Qb7#

46. @orenwachstock says:

Qb7

47. @user-xz1ld7wu3h says:

I found it but it was only because I'd seen this puzzle before. It's Qb3#

48. @lasagna8186 says:

Bh2+ is checkmate for the last puzzle. Qb2+ is also correct I think, but Bh2+ is more stylish.

49. @philip6419 says:

Hello Igor. Im just begining to learn chess and enjoy your channel, best.
Let me ask, please.. in the2nd puzzle with 2 R, 1 P and K.. vs Black K.
You 1st move was R-f4 then KxR. After that you gave a couple of ways the black K could move.. with one being K-h2.
Isn't h2 being defended by the pawn.. making that move not possible?
Also, on the final puzzle @4:25. Wouldn't a simpler way be.. P-h6, then K races to the corner with K-f8 but THEN b-e6, stopping the kings advance
who then turns to e7 [or resign]. Now b retreats to c4, [still controlling g8] and now pawn is safe to move up h-file and convert at h8?
The last puzzle seems to be Q-b7. Thanks for all your work and kind way of teaching.

Qb3#. Thatâ€™s a cool puzzle.
