# Magnus Carlsen Solves VERY HARD CHESS PUZZLE – CHECKMATE in 2 Moves

1. @Gravitin0 says:

I see he is a bit mad because he taught it was harder, so he didn't check a8 which is typical.

2. @VIPERS_YT says:

Night takes rook

Tbh it was a easy one

4. @howdj says:

Why Queen A8?

5. @awequayzngs1780 says:

kindergarten puzzle.

6. @musomaster9027 says:

I took 10 minutes to work out this isn’t checkers.

7. @thedevereauxbunch says:

Two minutes. Not a problem. Okay. Just remind me, which one is the king and which one queen?

8. @Reallymeanbean says:

There is another, he took the confusingly brutal route though.

9. @mrkretschmer says:

lets play

10. @bobtwista says:

12. @GM_ATHARVTIWARI says:

Pawn moves B5 then , White is attacking the Black Queen blocks then Rook to e3 mate

✍️Magnus Carlsen ;-
-Self-confidence is very important. If you don’t think you can win, you will take cowardly decisions in the crucial moments, out of sheer respect for your opponent. You see the opportunity but also greater limitations than you should. I have always believed in what I do on the chessboard, even when I had no objective reason to. It is better to overestimate your prospects than underestimate them.

14. @Human_Words says:

Rc3 is also a mate in 2 black will play f3 then Bxf3 mate…. Works also with all positions with R on the 3rd line

I can see more than 1 solution to this puzzle wich is i feel is not that hard, please correct me if I'm wrong somewhere

15. @Hemanthguptap says:

Ah I think I'm also a little good because I found it in 6 minutes

16. @thaxbest2180 says:

Only thing that comes to mind as watch him solve this puzzle is “chess is hard” 😂

17. @qpeocn says:

Sorry i wasn't listening. My eyes and ears were on the chick the entire clip.

18. @aldwingungob3196 says:

Are you sure? Wtf hahahah

19. @alecolu95 says:

At first I thought b5, but then Rc4 makes you lose the queen. Still I don't see a forced move after Qa8 nor the mate at the next move 😵‍💫

20. @naveenmsd_ says:

Even if they had given 200 years I would not even considor this Qa8.

21. @RIP_CHIPS says:

Q c2 mate

22. @alarosarhsdutonperdu8041 says:

typical

23. @Elitecataphract says:

He's playing as white

24. @CHOUtorialsYT says:

This gotta be queen c4. Black queen covers. Queen takes queen mate right? Forced and took me 5 mins

25. @ll-lb4zu says:

bishop from f3 to g3 1 move win

26. @motexas9092 says:

That lady is annoying most leaches like this just give headaches to their husbands and burdens to there families

If first move is of white: 1)move e7kinght to f5, then move rook on e3 is mate.

If first move is of black:1) if black queen goes to d4 then rooke3 is mate.
2)if black queen goes away anywhere from d4square then capture rook from e7knight and {capture black queen from white queen(if black queen capture c6knight)} or { move rook to e3 (if black queen doesn't capture c6knight)}.

28. @Lord_Game says:

Am I dumb or isn’t rook f4, black king needs to take and then knight takes queen checkmate? Feels way more obvious to me

29. @moshimoshi8283 says:

I suck so bad at finding mates. I have to study more endgame stuff. I’ve accidentally stalemated my last 3 times I had a chance to win 🤦🏽‍♂️

30. @Tenmack416 says:

Lol, I found in one?

31. @Tenmack416 says:

There are scenarios when a checkmate in 2 is not possible if the black answers properly, so I am not sure if it’s really solved.

32. @sinamahboob379 says:

Bro thinks he's magnus Carlsen

33. @808natas says:

She’s wetter than a typhoon in south east Asia

34. @nikolabucabuca says:

if whitw is on mouve rook on a 6 is mate to in 2 mouve

35. @WiIIiam_Minecraft says:

Bro that’s way too easy I solve it in less 10 seconds, I can’t believe he solved it in about 2 min 💀

36. @buncxvr4052 says:

Am I crazy or can white not go Qa1 for checkmate in one?

Because white rook stops the king from moving down one, knight is stopping king from going up so the only place left to go is left but that is covered by Qa1

I’m fucking retarded
King can take rook
Forgot that’s a thing 🥶🥶🥶

37. @Parasuraman-ey4wo says:

Nice to see the chess thought process of the world champion who is possibly the best of all times.

38. @mustafamajidi6589 says:

Okay so if white goes queen a8 and black goes queen c4 how is that mate in 2?

39. @njdevil6669 says:

b4 re3

40. @thesubhumancomedy says:

I was thinking Qa1, then he said Qa8, and I was like, what!? And then saw it.
If 15 minutes, perhaps I would have gotten it.

41. @wingcap1448 says:

The point is that the pawns and the king can't move so black has to reply with either a rook or a queen move. Queen A8 sets up to pin either the rook or the queen when giving check with the the knight on D6 or C5 so that the pinned piece cannot take the night, hence delivering checkmate. The only way for black to prevent that is to put one of the pieces on a square where it's not pinned once the knight moves and defends both checkmate squares of the knight. The only way to achieve that is to put the queen on D4. But that blocks an escape route for the king and rook E3 is mate. The pawn can't take the rook because the king is in double check from rook and bishop.

42. @fmbm2948 says:

She’s annoying as hell, I like the clip because of how quickly he solves its, but every time I listen to her “oh are you sure… Final answer?….. not bad” jeez I can’t stand her

43. @cms1250 says:

He talks like the gorilla in my gym partners a monkey

44. @mayankkashyap3740 says:

Girls name?

45. @thechampion3785 says:

I solved the puzzle in one minute

46. @GaryGoals says:

You have to tell us which cookie we are and not put the board in a place which youtube covers with descriptions. Come on.

47. @colindavidson6483 says:

I don’t know anything about chess, I can still tell he’s on another level

48. @cliffordfarley30 says:

I’m lost because neither of those moves put the king in check

49. @xxdoubleburgerxxnoscope4494 says:

Ayyy The chessual tension between these two just look at her smile. Find a room guys

50. @jayenar167 says:
