  1. I can never get enough clever/interesting chess puzzles!!!

  2. thanks for all the coverage of the chamionship, but nothing compares to a stream of jerry playing while commentating on his own moves. looking forward to the next one

  3. I liked the second puzzle, very interesting
    the other two were not too hard
    thank you Jerry

  4. Jerry, I think it would be pretty cool if you put the FGN of these tactics in the description box

  5. 1st ok
    2nd draw
    3rd different idea…7-8 moves mate and another variation +10 moves which seems to be losing…I got tired and saw the idea was rook a1 and after king moves knight c6…if he takes with pawn or he doesn't take and moves king it's forced mate after that…but if he takes with bishop probably can survive and win (white that is)

  6. You're a swell guy, Jerry! These puzzle videos are nothing short of fantastic! Try and try as I may, I can never seem to go 3/3. With your help I'm getting better though, so thanks!

  7. actually in the last puzzle jerry Nb6+ also leads to an unstoppable forced win! It could take as many as 15 moves!! but its a winning move, not as efficient as your way though!!!

  8. actually the 2nd puzzle I got right for the wrong reasons, thought it be boss to do it with rook just for the sake of it tio rub it in black for not resigning didnt even realise it was stalemate with queen!!!

  9. on 1st puzzle: Why not 1.c6, Ba4, 2.c7, Bd7, 3.Bc4+, Kx . 4Be6 ?

  10. Hope you were able to rest your voice well, Jerry. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. And again couldn't solve any of them. I should go to sleep

  12. I saw the stalemate Variation in the Second one. but didnt thought about the rook Promotion. when I saw the Solution I felt so dumb

  13. the second puzzle is mind boggling, very nice Jerry!

  14. nooo I got tricked by this stealmate too ๐Ÿ™ the third was easier I feel. As you said check had to be delivered. Please share these series of vids more often!

  15. Number three was a nice variation on Damiano's mate

  16. I really liked the old style of puzzles, where you do them "live", so we can watch and hear your thoughprocess solving them! Not saying this is a bad format, but they where usually longer, and yes, I like your voice that much ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Holy shit I legit solved #3 i think

  18. You have the most entertaining and informative chess videos on the internet; you explain concepts succinctly and clearly. Cheers mate.

  19. Wait, in the last puzzle, couldn't the black sacrifice his bishop to capture the white knight at c6 (6:38)?

  20. why was the solution to the second puzzle picking a rook instead of a queen?

  21. on the last one, what about knight d4 to e6, sac it with opponent bishop. leaving the bishop and queen defending b6 and a7.
    then you knight c4 to b6, then you check with castle a1 and then go to a8 mate

  22. the second one..what if pawn to d3 and gives check instead of Q takes Q and the following stalemate?

  23. 0/3 I bloody figured out the stalemate but didn't figure how to prevent it with a bloody Rook! Goddamn those underpromotions! xD

  24. Once again black's pawns are traitors in the first puzzle.
