1. Giulio Severini says:

Amazing.I wonder whether there is a single person who can really find the solution without the aid of an engine.

2. Aris says:

B4 pawn, move it, move bishop to release queen and eat the pawn

3. elihs says:

This is the first one of your puzzles that I actually figured out from start to finish!

4. PixelTobi PG3D says:

New achievement unlocked: How did we get here

5. Manoj Chaturvedi says:

Dude why should we capture c4 before capturing the rook?

6. Grix Myron says:

When Black played Grob's attack

Nelson why couldn't we lose a tempo with the king

8. Aurimas Svisฤiauskas says:

9. Susanne says:

Couldn't you just move the king so that the queen has to move?

10. unholy_angle says:

before watching the solution i assume you should move the pawn to h3 first instead of h4
edit: i watched the video, turns out i was right, very cool that i solved a puzzle for a position that is impossible to get in
edit 2: didn't see the other pawn though…

11. Giann1s says:

H3 or H4 it doesn't matter. You can simply move the king when the knight is threatening the rook then Black is forced to move his queen and you win
.

12. jerry79 says:

move the goddam king man

13. Miguxlxx says:

What about moving the king???? To make the queen move

14. 1 says:

Im confused why you cant just move your king back

15. Ice Manlol says:

3:55 in that play, you can move you're king to F2, if the opponent put the queen back into A1 chekmate, but if it loose a tempo pushing pawn to C4 you take it with the knight then (when queens move back to A1 and then A2) you put knight back into A5 and then move the king to E1 and then chekmate, i think about that

16. LunarJJ4 says:

I solved it with a queen and bro said i cant checkmate with queen

17. Laxminarayan Rathore says:

Black_Achievment unlocked- How did we get here.

Why couldn't you just promote to a queen then kill their queen when it was forced to move into your rage?

19. Timejuice! says:

Wow I had this exact position a few games back.. The next time i get this position, i will win for sure!

20. Fรฉlix Fortier says:

but If you play h4 and your stuck with the queen covering the rook, couldnโt you just play a king move so that the only move that black can play is putting back his queen so then you can checkmate by taking the rook? for me it make sense

Can someone better at chess explain me why you can't just move your king if you move the pawn by 2 squares on the first move?

22. prawnydagrate says:

the way you said zugzwang has me dying

23. Alocroft says:

Cant you just move the king?

24. LuciusMM2 Gaming says:

Isnโt It Possible To Do THE SAME THING With A Queen?

25. Julio Medvescek says:

After white moves, move black pawn from E3 to E4 to make space for the rock!! White has no chance to win here.

26. hugo castellanos says:

Why not take the pawn on d3 and not the b3 move ?

27. Man Knight says:

cant you move your king away from the rook?

28. Baconey says:

I found this somehow

29. Usejd Shehi says:

u can just move ur king

30. Aestronom says:

Canโt you make a random king move when you get the knight on the square that threatens the rook?

31. Alpesh Patel says:

Nelson the first potion just move the king to get the queen to move

32. Wininarsenal says:

5:52 they can push the pawn on c5 to c4 though

33. ders123 says:

I realy calculated this.

34. LuckyTheFox says:

What unholy rituals led to this position

35. Ronit Tiwari says:

Moving the pawn to h3 instead of h4 was some insane calculation

36. ROCKIN GAMING WITH THE SAHIT says:

5:10 Why can't you move the king?

37. YanTheFoxy says:

But if the king simply moved to f2, it would lose a tempo and there will be no need for all of those tricks

38. Freddy Fazballs says:

4:59 Why cant we move the king? and if you say because they'll promote you can just take the promoted pawn on the next move

This isn't about finding yourself in the position lol. Excellent thorough explanation ty so much Nelson, agreed fascinating

40. pingamalinga says:

Typical end game scenario

41. herobrine 44 11 says:

Actually white can move the king to lose the tempos!!!

42. Natural science says:

I solve this puzzle because i heard about smothern checkmate yesterday so when I see king canot move i say to move pawn and promote to a knight and is easy to checkmate but I don't see knight is black undefended and i say to push pawn to sqaures because i am just learning chess i said to promote to knight but didn't understand other theories

43. Meandering Mike says:

Fun puzzle … but the situation will never happen in a real game!

44. Salman Alfarisi Yunansyah says:

h3 is correct
h4 is blunder

45. John Dale SALACSACAN says:

In the first puzzle I think you make a queen then move the queen to h6 then take the ruke

46. evil xplay says:

And when you realize you can just move your king

47. Ganesh Krishnan says:

Is this theory?

48. Bondy Magnomous says:

Beautiful.

49. Dawid Zwiewka says:

"8/8/8/2p5/1pp5/brpp4/qpprpK1P/1nkbn3 w – – 0 1"
It would be great if you could always include position to load like this ๐

Did Black play Sicilian? ๐
