  1. at 5:00 the rook and slide a check to the king opening a attack to the queen with the bishop and since the king protects the rook black will win

  2. Can someone explain why at 5:01 u cant move the rook to f7 and capture the queen?

    "Zugzwang" is more pronounced like "Tsoogtsvang" just as a simplified pronounciation guide.

  4. I appreciate the timestamps, the story isn't for me, I just enjoy the puzzles πŸ™‚

  5. First time I solved one of those and it happened to be the first line I considered. Thanks for the puzzle!

  6. Technically after white queens at 5:00, black can check whites king with his rook and win the queen with a discovery.

  7. I think by the end of this adventure, those three will never sail again.

  8. i just realize every puzzle is a win for you

  9. Real solution: Throw the game, help the pirate move the gold, and kill him along the way and take all the gold. Problem solved.

  10. 5:01 What happens if black plays Rb6 check and also a discovered attack on the queen? Is this position a draw?

  11. Ok no man this story telling is really cringe sorry. Did you forget that people over the age of 10 also watch you?

  13. this story is really interesting, mixed up with the puzzles it's even better. and the map looks really interesting too

  14. I also really like the story telling. It adds another layer

  15. Episode 5: They will meet dragon's lair and be in the dragon. Did i predict?

  16. in 5:00 black could play Rf7 check and win the queen with the bishop

  17. Hi Nelson, greetings from Argentina.
    Learning chess by an interesting and entretaining story is (at least to me) alwqays a plus. The tatctics are better remebered.
    From my perspective, keep the fishermen stories comming.
    Cheers from NE Patagonia.

  18. your puzzle videos are the best. focus more on puzzles and please stop playing Martin πŸ˜€

  19. I love the little story part you attach with each of these puzzle episodes.

  20. This is an amazing series! My guess is endless desert or library is the next episode.

    Also this series would make an awesome chess puzzle book for kids! Not saying anything about challenge level of the puzzles, but the structure would work perfectly for it.

  21. I love this mini series. Very much. Please consider tu continue

  22. this is great πŸ˜‚ i know this series will be very enjoyable

  23. I solved it from the starting position! It was pretty easy, and obvious. I mean when I saw Be4 I was like wait a minute, but then I saw c6 followed by Ng6 (I paused the video there for a second, but other than that I pretty much solved it without any problem. ) .

  24. What about rook to b7 and then once queen then rook check and then the bishop is procting the square where the pawn can promote ultimately a win for black

  25. 4:52 what I don't understand is why black can't play Rc8 because if you take the rook with the pawn and queen, then black takes with the bishop and it's a draw.

  26. I love these stories. It makes the chess puzzles so much more interesting.

  27. Its draw beacuse you can do check and discovered atack on queen and then we sacrifise the queen for rook

  28. I love that Bobby Fischerman is his cannon name now

  29. I'm sorry for the reference but i couldn't stand it:
    0:180:20 "We just came from a whale"
    And that's how they are "Whale-c*mm"ed

  30. That map looks like it could be for an amusement park.

  31. I'm waiting for the thing that gives the puzzle to not hold their side of the bargain

  32. Chess Vibes

    Love all your awesome videos. 1:20.

    To me, win for White. Pawns near the other end (to get Queen) to powerful it is, and black won’t be able to stop White from getting a Queen.

    White win.

  34. By now the fisherman is probably asking "wait a second, why you all asking me to solve chess puzzles instead of some practical problems? What is this place anyway?"
