# How to Solve Chess Puzzles #31

I share my thoughts while trying to solve 3 chess puzzles. Feel free to quickly pause the video before I share what I’m thinking with each chess puzzle if you’d like to solve them on your own. Simply asking the right questions can lead us down the correct path towards a puzzle’s solution.

What happens after e5 by black after qg7

2. @Spindude2 says:

Yay first the the puzzle!

2 videos in one day!?
You're spoiling us Jerry 😀

4. @marqmaram says:

Jerry, I love how much content you upload recently! Please keep it up, it is just awesome! Learning a lot, and giving me more and more inspiration to play even more chess! 🙂

5. @PETAJOULE543 says:

I think the third puzzle had also an answer Qe7 threatening mate in g5. Only black queen can defend it so it is forced to move to Qa5 then white push his pawns. Black will lose queen but it is enough for winning

6. @limegreenelevator says:

Last puzzle: what's the continuation if Black follows White's Qg7 with …Qe3 (maintaining the pin and preventing check on e5)? I'm thinking take the rook (still controls g7 & maintains threat on h7) but not sure.

7. @therenob624 says:

great commentary! always impressed with your insight, 2/3 for me 🙂

8. @shanecommins7968 says:

Oh, that last one is so sweet. Great video Jerry!

9. @martim95 says:

Very cool group of three Jerry, chess.com tactics are, at least for me, one of the best out there, with interesting problems of calculation and atention as well. I was wondering Jerry if you would take a look at a game that I played, very poorly may I add but after I lost I actually learned quite a lot from it and I think lower rated players can gain something with a review made by you. Just an idea anyway

10. @Jay_Scheme says:

Is the first puzzle highlighting the use of wind milling?

11. @melrakan says:

First puzzle… I really like Bg5+ more, even though the tactics work better with Qh4+. Spent a good while analyzing those lines, very satisfying for white

12. @AlexTwigg_films says:

Great puzzles Jerry! I figured out the last one with out pausing the video too O.O

13. @3sneider304 says:

Wow

14. @ohhhboy06 says:

Jerry I have a mate in 5 I need help with but tweeter won't let me tweet it to you. is there another way I can send it?

15. @jakebishop7822 says:

I got the right moves for the first one but i didint see that if Ke7 i couldn't take the rook.

16. @aaronclark4929 says:

What is wrong with Qe7?

17. @XxPunisherxX7 says:

what would happen if black played Qc1 on the last puzzle?

18. @juancarloskoyi says:

It's good to have a person to analyze these problems, follow up these types of videos, Greetings

19. @thelazymanatee2506 says:

Really great puzzles today!
That first puzzle was a really versatile one, and a good one!
And believe it or not, I actualy got that last one, nice feeling to spot such an aesthetically pleasing mate.

20. @FromTheMountain says:

I did see that last one, but I don't get why black can't just play 1. Qg7 Qa3 2. Qxh8 Kh6. I guess it doesn't really matter, because you'd have still won a rook, but I think it's just stupid that black is simply allowing a mate.

21. @leerobbo92 says:

22. @wwechess says:

For the last one, what if 1.Qe7 threatening mate on f4. What would be the response?

23. @yaseeew says:

24. @XxPunisherxX7 says:

what would happen if the black queen went to C8 on the last puzzle?

25. @Maxisokol says:

That laughter on 5:35 gave me real goosebumps… creepy.

26. @JasonTrivium says:

Totally spectacular video, chess puzzles are a great exercise. I would love to see more videos like this.

27. @gz3468 says:

For the last puzzle, what if white plays queen e7 to threaten mate?

28. @lewtkumiyu2312 says:

for the last puzzle, black shouldn't have played qxg7 but instead play e5
