Wait isnt this like stump the chump?
The next opponent is a magnet… magnet karlus.
Very clever way to destroy Black's fortress in the 2nd puzzle .
Thé 2nd puzzle is why i fear women
Gona be close
In the first puzzle, Bg7 looks like a good first move.
I've seen the this puzzle before from chesscape
Hello, i think the best option for white to win in chess puzzle 1 is – white bishop to g7 threatening the rook , if black rook to g8 , the pawn at g6 takes the pawn at h7 which threatens the rook and thus white forces promotion . Now white can win with queen and king checkmate
Am I the only one who doesn't like this series
Nelson: Hopefully you didn't say this super obvious move that is clearly a trap
Episode 100 of this series be like:
The Nelson's chess puzzles
(God of this universe).
That second puzzle was one of the most fascinating puzzles I've seen. Both kings trapped on two different corners.
And the Queen covering every single square where the Bishop could go.
This channel and the series are one of the best vedios I have ever seen!!!WOW
I expected a knight at this puzzle because of the octopus
Wow! That second puzzle had me flummoxed – I was convinced it was a draw; the maneuver to force black into zugzwang was brilliant!
And that first puzzle was a nice reminder to always look for an intermezzo – a lesson I sorely need to learn.
Thanks Nelson – keep them coming!
Bobbyfischer man once fished up a fish named stockfish
But those weren't octopus' puzzles, they were Bobby's puzzles…
The second puzzle tells us never to underestimate the importance of zugzwan (I'm sure I misspelled it, just save it! Lol).
I hate having to compete against octopuses with sunglasses. They always the best chess players. 😉
All hail Bobby Fischer 🙌
octopus rlly said 🤓frfr
The white pawns are going forward 🤣
Bruh 2nd one was easier for me
I wonder how Average Joe managed the soap chess problem !
I'm pretty happy that I saw the answer to the first puzzle almost immediately. I ended up concluding that the second puzzle was a draw even though my gut told me there was a way to maneuver the king into a fork with the bishop. I just couldn't find it.
BTW, in the intro, Eliminated was spelled Elimated
Very funny, if the lowest rated player saved the world in the very end
Only legends know that the 1st puzzle is actually on @gothamchess channel
I am not able to find this type of episode in order.
Bobby fisherman is stockfish in human i love it
I figured out the third puzzle.
I've once heard that a queen could push a king to the edge of the board even without the help of the king. But I didn't remember it until Nelson showed the solution. Nice puzzle where this is relevant.
"Live and learn", Octo
It ended better for the octopus than it could have. When fisherman wins they usually end up on the grill.
in the second puzzle what if after Qf3 instead of Kb2 the king goes to Kd2 then Qb3 and then Be3. I dont see a way to Checkmate
Cleaner way to force black king into the corner in second puzzle is to play Qf3 first instead of Qa3. Because after Qa3 Kc2 Qf3 black can repeat the position with Kd2. And after Qf3 Kc2 Qa3 black king is forced to move to f1. The technique is to place the queen in knight move against the opposite side's king.
I’d be willing to bet I have never guessed correctly…even with a 50% chance and no requirement to explain it, pretty sure I’m always wrong. That second puzzle was awesome, very clever.
I think I couldn’t solve any of those puzzles!😮🧩😊
@0:48 What is "ELIMATED"?
Last puzzle was very nice. I thought about it for about five minutes, and almost came to the same conclusion as the octopus
I love these puzzles and am almost getting better at solving them
Got the first one correctly and the 2nd one until the move that the whole comment section is talking about (yeah i couldnt figure out that one even tho zugzwong is an idea that i usually try to … try)
why do i instantly click this video, it’s the first video in my feed i love this series i would really like more things like this,also could u put numbers from where we started to now
This story is awesome
Nah, wtf are these new thumbnails bro 😅
Is it just me, or the first puzzle has already been featured by nelson before?
Or am i just having a deja vu?
@chessvibes i need your confirmation Mr. Nelson
That second one was great. It had me completely fooled. I figured I'd nailed it when I didn't see a way to bust up the pawn and bishop. :/
I love this channel, and I'm blown away at how rapidly its growing! Keep it coming Nelson ❤
