  1. On the third puzzle, what if black plays Bb1 after b3 (it threatens Be4#)?

  2. sadilhas πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆβƒ  says:

    11:35 black blundered the game horse can go to f7 and that's a checkmate!

  3. puzzle Number 3 is lost for white anyway, black mustn take c4 and move the bishop on C2 for checkmate on e4, white cant stop this

  4. Fun fact: ball is called ball bc they add ll

  5. Me: These are easy puzzles
    After watching the video
    Me: NVM

  6. πŸ²πŸ΅π—«π—«π—«.π—Ÿπ—œπ—™π—˜ says:

    πŸ‘† – NΠ•W А DАВING FОR АLL ВАSΠ’Π•S & АGΠ•S πŸ’‘πŸ’¦vπŸ’Œ

  7. 11:35 This hurt my soul. Why would you check at G6, when you could check mate at F7? :/

  8. In the first position Black can delay matters by one move with (after 1 Kf7) 1 … a1=Q, 2 Bxa1, etc.
    (Sorry if it's obvious.)

  9. Me: sees title
    The title: fools you
    Me: plays worst possible move

  10. Funny thing in the 4th puzzle. If black plays Qc3+, white has to take with the king. If white takes with the queen, it's a stalemate.

  11. when i first started watching u was like a week ago and i couldt get any of the puzzles right now i do

  12. Now we need another Livestream with 2 knights+king vs 1 pawn+king checkmate tutorial for next puzzle idea
    Great video as always

  13. I kid you not my brain activated and already solved the puzzle in the thumbnail in about 3 minutes (im a 600 ish rated player 😭)

  14. In the last puzzle if the king goes to h8 you have checkmate with Nf7

  15. for the 4th puzzle, if black do Qxg6 and sacks their queen wouldnt they still be up a knight and win?

  16. Nelson bro in 5th puzzle nf7 is checkmate if the king goes to h8

  17. Chess beginner here, but in the third puzzle, when white moves that first pawn up, what's to stop black from moving the bishop to B1 and then checkmating on the next turn?

  18. I also make puzzles and Puzzle 3 and 4 look exactly mine

  19. Just a random idea for a video – could try learning shogi chess, I think it would be interesting to see how you find it while being very experienced in western chess! I have just found out about shogi and thinking of checking out how it works.

  20. #1 — I mean, it's gotta be 1. g4+ forking king and rook. Yeah, the e and f-pawns may get gobbled up, but at least White's bishop on h8 controls the a1 queening square and the rook will be claimed too.

    Nelson: If you said 1. g4+, you would be wrong. (I stepped into a trap, didn't I…?? πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ)

  21. how can I send someone a game i played on te chess website? I want to send a friend of mine a ridiculous game i played

  22. 2. puzzle u forgot to mention after c3xd4 there is king b5 whixh is also draw

  23. Amazing content as usual πŸ™. I’m not that good at these puzzles so it’s fascinating for me every time

  24. in last puzzle its checkmate if the black king goes into the corner
    you missed this

  25. Sadly, it won’t let me like it twice.

  26. 11:34 Wait a minute. If the King moves to h8, there is a checkmate move with the second horse lol

  27. stalemate traps are such a ridiculous concept and shouldnt be part of the game. as if an army surrounding a king isnt an advantageous position

  28. In the last puzzle, if king moves to h8 it's even a checkmate

  29. 2nd puzzle can't the a5 knight take the pawn en-passant?

  30. In the 5th puzzle at 11:36, If King h8, you DON'T go Ng6+. You go Nf7#.

  31. 9:00 if Black underpromotes to a knight could delay the mate by 2 extra moves from this position.
