In this video I am analyzing a very hard chess puzzle published by Garry Kasparov on Twitter! The puzzle is extremely complex (one of the hardest I have ever seen) and can become a headache for powerful chess engines! In the video I am testing Chessify’s Cloud Engine running on powerful servers!
Eduard Eilazian, White is winning
This position in Forsyth-Edwards Notation (FEN) is : 8/7K/4p1p1/6Bk/8/6P1/bp2NP1r/3B3N w – – 0 0

Why Bc1 8:18 see engine suggesting Bd3 is draw
You have disconnected by now, right? The cloud chess engine seems to be quite pricy.
This is one of the most complex puzzles in chess history. Is it composed by the great Kasparov?
I am still at learning stage so i found puzzle vry brain storming..dnt knw how masters react for it
8:16 why not Bd3?
The world of chess misses Kasparov, since then no one has played with such burning passion and fierce will.
I really loved the washed-out background you used. Nice one!
This is a profound puzzle, thanks Suren ! … I think that soon there will be chess puzzles composed by supercomputers that can be solved only with the help of supercomputers.
We need strategic thinking in order to conquer our upcoming AI
5:44 what do you mean?
first pawn to f4 then rook will eliminate knight on h1
after that knight to d4 and game over i guess
Easy puzzle that was
I think kasparov is a strongest player of all time.
That is the best puzzle I've ever seen!
It's amazing!!! 👏👏👏
sorry suren but my engine sugest 8:16 ..Bd3, your engine shows draw as a first choice too…
That truly was a mind boggling, jaw dropping chess puzzle.
You should have gone through blacks other line:
1.Bd3! (note Bxd3 and Nxd3 both lead to a draw: Bxd3 frees the rook, and Nxd3 leads to f4! And f5! Freeing the rook from the pin)
… Bd1 2.Bc2 Bf3
Now Black is forced to play Bb1 transposing into the path in the video or the better: 3. Bd3 Nxd3
(now the Bishop is on f3 blocking the pawn from unpinning the rook)
4. f4 Ne5 (Nf2) 5.fxg3 Nxg4 6.Kh4 Ne3 and the pawn is blocked and the game is won.
Also note that Bxg4 fxg4 in the aims to get the Knight to checkmate from f6 isn't possible as the Bishop can always defend the white squares preceding this every time the Knight is on a dark square (it can defend by being on a white square as taking leads to stalemate)
MY COMPUTER FOUND THE WINNING LINE AFTER JUST 1 MINUTE AND IT ONLY HAS A MID RANGE CORE I7 MOBILE PROCESSOR AND A CUSTOM VERSION OF STOCKFISH I MADE.

New channel name?
Nice I got a chess advertisement with Garry Kasparov in it before the video
That means stockfish 9 can go one on one with alfa zero.
All about Endgame studies you can find at http://www.arves.org for free!
good video, thank you Petr
Sergey did win with two knights and king against a strong GM in a strong tournament.
7:17 black can just play f4 and promoting ends it
8:34 the black bishop can simply stay on the diagnol but this position is as good as mate
Suren, check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weihJSohY28
It is both complex and funny.
Komodo 10.2 couldn't find it at first either lol this proves humans are still strongers than engines in some ways
I checked it with my computer, Stockfish does not solve it in proper time (i interrupted it). Very odd, the quite old Houdini 1.5a (a really old version) solved it very quickly. Houdini spent some seconds on Bh6, but then switched over to Bh4 and quickly the rating went up to +6 and more.
because engine always analyzing win win situation to both not only white…that only why
I never thought I'd hear "inaccuracy" to describe a stockfish 9 move
Wait, during that "Dance of the bishops" part, after White played Be2, Black, instead of Bb1, he could play Bd3, right??? I analyzed this move and didn't find a good continuation for White, and the game ends up in a draw
Stockfish 10 says black is better after Bh4
Astounding puzzle brought from multiverse
First move is to be f4
Then he can get queen and knight to c3 and queen takes bishop
Sergey kajrakin is very great player
At 7:05 1… Bc2!
Do we have move nd4 if k takes on d4 then nf3 check removing bishop is it good move please suggest
Which is the best chess engine which could be unbeaten
Stockfish 10 can solve this easily against itself
in 7:15 instead of Bd3 for black, he can play Bc2, still white wins but takes a very long path to checkmate
what is type of chess and chessboard? What is it called?
which software you are using
Suren, Can you please suggest a FREE chess software?
Thanks suren 😊 for the puzzle….that really shook my head….I tried so hard but failed….so again watching the video for answer😂
How did the composer solve it, though?
We solved .
