  1. And once again the pawns are going forward. When is he going to show us a puzzle where they're moving backwards?

  2. Why can't these puzzles be a part of the Bobby fisherman stories? I really miss that series πŸ₯²

  3. The first time he says "oops"
    Thats rare dude

  4. Does Knight F5 work in the starting position? If king takes you can push h pawn, if rook pins knight push h pawn again, to make room for king. Any other move you can still push h pawn since opponents king can't go to G7, since knight blocks that square.
    Did I miss something?

  5. This video was short but still very good!πŸ‘

  6. Hm, I put the puzzle to an editor and after knight D6, the response was rock C5.

  7. Who else saw the board with the position on the screen.

  8. 100 IQ: Promote to a rook
    125 IQ: Promote to a queen because it's better than a rook
    150 IQ: Promote to a bishop to avoid stalemate
    200 IQ: Promote to a knight because it's a check
    500 IQ: Don't promote and instead move the king to avoid stalemate

  9. 2:33 after Nf7: yay!! We get to queen after rook takes knight, pawn takes rook and king takes pawn!! March forward and queen, f-pawn!! 😁😁

    (1/2 – 1/2)

    D'OH!!!! Stalemate… πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚

  10. I would have liked an analysis of the line, where black immediately takes the knoght on the first move and then moves in front of the pawn on move 2.

    It is not immediately obvious to me how white can queen without stalemating.

  11. After Nd6 I think that black can try something more tricky than Rc7. I would play Rc5+ and I am still not sure how white will win. If white plays Kh6 then Rc7 and you can't play Nf7 + because the rook takes the knight and after gxf7 it's a stalmate. If after Re5 + white plays Kh4 or Kg4 black can play Kg7 and if white plays Nf7 then Rc8 covers the last rank.
    The puzzle is more complicated than it seems and many variations were not covered in this video.
    Edit (I corrected the move. It is Rc5+ and not Re5+ as I initially wrote, thanks Myth busters for noticing).

  12. Ha, after 1:19 promoting to a Queen is actually checkmate (promoting to a Rook would also work).

  13. White to play and win the game. What does white do?
    BLUNDER!

  14. Thank you for the rook tip. At age 75 I REALLY need that type of easily rememberable hints

  15. Idk if anyone else has this problems, maybe 90% of us but my main problem is always promoting to a queen. But after watching many of these examples, i realize sometimes I need a rook instead for a win.

    This is a very hard lesson to be learned especially for those like me, who is 1200 or below. I seem to think anyone above 1300 rated will see the solution better.

  16. Wait, Nelson… Did you fall for the stalemate trap for real at 2:47? XD

  17. 2:37, it should also be noted that if black plays Kg7 protecting both queening squares, then white can promote either pawn, and after the king takes he is deflected from the protection of the other queening square.

  18. You actually managed to get your chair back on the mat almost immediately, well done. Whenever I slide off, the wheel clips and I have to over-commit, lift the whole damn chair up, throw it out the window and get another chair. Terrible…great puzzle though, simple but still complicated. Helpful too, knowing some of the little traps that would very likely (with a simple layout) come up.

  19. This is cool puzzle, try to solve this alone, no chess programs.

    White peaces Kh6 Nh5 Bh4
    Black Kh8 Qg8

    White moves and win 8 moves.
    First moves is clear Bf6+ Qg7+
    But what now? Bxg7+ or Nxg7?
    Both moves win, but 7 and 30 moves.
    What is your moves?

  20. I think this is the first puzzle where I actually got everything right first try. Yay me!

  21. Yay! I guessed the first two moves. Second half of the video was new.

  22. Hey Nelson, found you a little random when a video from you got suggested, it was one out of your chess puzzle adventure playlist. Looked at some other videos and I gotta say you got me to playing chess again (not even at any really professional level but I tried against some friends and got some quite good moves thanks to you). I just gotta ask you one question… will you continue the chess puzzle adeventure? I really liked it so I hope if will continue in the future <3

  23. looking forward to the infamous punishment for the caterpillar

  24. This is the same scenario as featured on the Terrelle Pryor problem episode of Chart Party!

  25. what happened to the bobby fischerman storyline, is it ended?

  26. No entiendo inglΓ©s, pero, entiendo TODO lo q nos enseΓ±a; gracias

  27. It looks very much like Nf5 should win .. you might demonstrate how Black survives that one

  28. Where are the bobby fisherman uploads

  29. cant rook take knight after the first pawn push, forcing white to take, allowing king to move up to g7, take pawn once it promotes?

  30. what if he jus sacs the rook at start? to take knight, forces u to take with king and then the pawns are free for the black king to take for a draw
    maybe im visualizing this wrong lmk if i am wrong

  31. You know, black doesn’t have to take the knight. He/she can do another move

  32. 3:34 Yes, that’s a lesson for me. In a rook ending, I never consider up and down a column.

    (pretty spot on with the rest of this)

  33. Uhh. Knight f5 saccing it and if black king takes, we move g6 pawn and black tries to stop it with rook to c8 then we push h6 pawn and (maybe) its a win. Even rook to c5 wont help cuz black king is blocking it. If they wont take it then idk.

  34. nice! you should cover Rc5+ instead of Rc7, because black has a nasty idea πŸ˜‰ i think thats a bit more tricks-play than Rc7 directly

  35. I see you tried to make your video a little bit faster. If so, it's wise but you forced a little too much imho. Try to take the middle between what it was and this one

  36. I think there is a move that forces to stalemate. If black rook plays the move to c5 instead of c7 white king needs to move h6 then black rooks moves to c7 knight plays f7 rook takes knight if pawn takes back there is no room to play black king and game is stalemate. There is still a mate for white but in 32 moves.

  37. Maybe some clarification should be given how white wins after Rxh4 because it may not be as straight forward as it involves sacking a pawn and pushing king out and one mistake and its draw

  38. Eat the horse after white takes eat G6 pawn white can't guard it so eat the pawn on h6 draw

  39. If rook to h4 early on at 0:56 then king to g7 allows stalemate with king to h8. So white does NOT win.
