BBC NEWS: The havoc wreaked in 2023, the mittens bot that even Magnus Carlsen, the former world champion, refused to play, has been discovered being seen with fisherman Bobby Fischerman. Police are conducting further exploration, but as of now we have no further information.
THIS IS GETTING INTENSE
Why on 13:03 the rook didnt go on h7?
after looking at it for a logner time capablancas paws look like they have been cut off
but what happens if black plays d2 at the end? arent the checkmates covered then?
idea: after bridge problem they betrayed boby and somehow escaped
Oh, I see why the Rook at the end gets a bit tricky. It's due to the Pawn and your king. Basically you need to leverage black's pawn to block the queen from being able to guard both of your eventual checkmate threats, but the issue is that you have to make sure that the queen is on the 'opposite' side of the pawn (bit weird because it's below the pawn vs to the right of the pawn) as your king, otherwise black can win a turn by putting the queen into the right position with check, getting a turn to move with the pawn. If the Queen moves to E3 before you position your rook, then if the queen ever hits the G file you end up losing, but if the queen doesn't go to E3 first then it's the 2nd rank that you need to keep the queen off of. Definitely a tricky position but a fun puzzle none the less!
Imagine if capablanca was mitten
This story is like a short animated film, love it!
CAN ANYONE TELL ME IS THIS GUY USING AN APP TO GET HIS PUZZLES
Im just annoyed his home isnt called casa blanca
Mittens has a challenge
Another way (This isn't optional because you can just NOT take the knight): 1.Knighte4, dxe4 2. Bxc5+ (discovered check by the rook) Any of the following:Kh1,Kg1,Kg2,Kg3,Kh3 3. Bxa7
And you can win no matter what
Me of 200rating: first move = bishop take pawn😂
I can only imagine the dragon will only give the travellers some gold if they can solve a chess puzzle. Of course, I will still tune in to find out
He have cats and he playes chess with his cat and it's name is mittens 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
15:23 Double blunder?
at 4:45 what about Qh7 defending mate
this is mittens
It's easier to visualize than what Nelson explains in the case of Qe3+/d3.
The positions are symmetrical.
If you had played Ra6 after the d3 line, the reason it doesn't work is because of some weird check in the second file due to the king being on f2 and not g3
I think the guardian attacked Peter Patzer and Average Joe
Fischer man vs cat pablanca
Now that's funny
Ne4 pray pawn takes
After pawn takes knight
Bx5 and wins queen because of discover check by rook
My guess is that Peter Patzer and Average Joe are at the End of the Road, where another chess puzzle is waiting for them.
did they dip without Bobby
One of em needs to die. We need drama
Missed opportunity, should've called it caTablanca😂
When the king was to the right of the knight the rook attacked at the left, then when the king was below the knight the rook attacked on the top.
What a brilliant puzzle – thanks!
Hah! Was not expecting the Mittens reference.
that whole first convo with Capablanca was gold! the mittens joke caught me by surprise haha nice puzzle, and I appreciate the tip about using knights to block queens from checking.
This story missed a big opportunity for Catablanca, but I dont mind since this is my favorite new series
When you explained the second variation with the pawn you started talking about B6 and then B7 but the previous one is A6 to A7 which I think still works, I'm not sure.
You make this game video as chess's puzzles and finally you make a story!
3:50 Actually, we don't have to take the queen. White has 4 other legal moves.
Nice reference to Mittens LOL
This puzzle was decent and fun!. I await for a new episode in this series
The plot is "ramificating". By episode 24 they'll love that island too much to want to go away.
11:58 black , not white
It would be so cool to have "boss levels" at some point. Idk how you would create them but you are a very creative guy nelson you'll find out somehow 😅
Bobby taught Mitten a bit too much .
If you wanted to make a longer video that goes through more lines, I'd be down to watch that.
story : the pirates
me : ah the story is about to end
story : the friends are gone
me : guess not
Great puzzle, incredibly challenging. I never knew the knight was such a good defender against a queen either, my end game is non-existent, lol.
