in the saavedra position, black should just let white make a queen. he can hold a stronger resistance

2. @user-gw8ou6lc2t says:

4:48 Why dont you just give up on queen and knight c3 its actually winning move , if black takes queen bishop b2 (defended by the king) checkmate and if black takes knight its more easy one queen captures knight then black king has to move to a2 then queen b2 (againly defended by the king) and againly checkmate. If black moves rock to random square its not gonna work bishop comes and mate. if u see rock black has a awesome trick again rock sacrifice on b4 if bishop takes its stalemate then we have counter play thats bishop b2. Yeah i know its can br captured by rock but after rock takes we move our queen on a6 or a4 then rock has to block on a2 then we capture with queen. (Queen defended by the knight that on the c3)

Saavedra's position is so fascinating! I amaze that you win when the materials are equal and how cool the transposition is

19. Invenblocker says:

"You can checkmate with a knight and a bishop"
Yes, that is definitely a skill I have mastered.

21. BB Boonyoo says:

Hi

22. BB Boonyoo says:

Hi

23. G N Murthy says:

Very nice

24. Fariba Tahzib says:

This is one of the most fascinating positions I have ever seen!!!

25. BNW Gaming πΉ says:

At 3:13 canβt black just play C4??? Which isnβt instantly a checkmate

Please make a video on horse and bishop endgame

27. Ξ¦Ξ΅ΞΌ Ξ ΞΏΞΉ says:

can someone please help me after Rd4 why not white move Kc3. The trick of check and taking the white queen doesnt work anymore because of after Rd1 white can move to c2

28. INDRANIL DAS says:

Superb…

29. Lemon Drop says:

you should play until Martin wins

30. Scott Colley says:

Have you shown the Reti position with the white king on h8, white pawn on c6, black pawn on h5 and black king on a6? White to move and draw? Thanks and I really enjoy your videos. BTW, Mittens mopped me up in about 30 moves. I was 3 pawns behind and blundered a rook, oops!

31. educat1on says:

i havent seen such a good puzzle in a long time

32. One Happy Artist says:

Great video!!

33. Yourcall says:

Stockfish just allows C7 C8 Queen taking light bishop and the knight.
Queen C3 > C4 into a Queen vs Rook endgame.

34. SomeAverageJoe says:

Hello! I've created a fascinating chess puzzle that involves 2 rook sacrifices in one line, a queen sacrifice in an another line, and a rook sacrifice+ an underpromtion to a knight in the third! If there's any way for me to share it with you it would make my day π

35. Everybody Draw Mohammed Day says:

Just take the 7-man tablase and extract longest wins from there. You're going to get tons of content.

36. Myth busters says:

6:42 Best move in black is Rf1 mate in 18.

37. Panthers Cove says:

Wow that was amazing

39. an drew says:

what gui is that

40. Ben Colglazier says:

There's definitely a different mindset in doing puzzles.

41. vivaan kohli says:

6:16 Isn't that an example of Mitrofanov's Deflection?

44. Hero-Gaming_Yt says:

I solved it π

45. Rishi Pranav Ramakrishnan says:

In the sideline Rxe4, what if we underpromote to a rook?

46. Crying for fun says:

how do i submit puzzles 1 day i was just playing around with after game analyses and a really interesting position came after black moved there was a mate in 23 for white and i bet noyone can slove it without using stockfish
