  1. Black could defend his king eigh a qurrn on g5. This would check white's king and interpose whute's check and threatens white's queen

  2. 9:09 "what else can they do?" Black can Queen G5! We didnt explore the possibility of blocking with the queen.Said my braindead mind after a loooong day.

  3. I would have won this: Patzer sees check, gives check.

  4. Can also repeat the queen move and then checkmate 🙂 as in, after taking the first pawn, instead of continuing the line, isn’t it possible to go Q back to c2, have that Bosnian king go to h6, queen to h2.. and GG?

  5. So it's white to win in 87 moives…. 😀

  6. I had a game like this last night where i was up a bunch of pieces.. BUT THIS DUDE KEPT CHECK MATING ME AND WON! Ug, was so annoying.

  7. so this is how you win a level 12 computer since they do not make mistakes like humans and play the best possible moves. I'll keep watching these videos to beat it. Thanks a lot

  8. At 9:12 you suggested moving the pon to h5, why not move the Queen to the same position, causing the white either moving the king or exchanging the Queens?

  9. Wow, like 9 mini puzzles in one position. Amazing composition. I love how your channel has unusual puzzles like this.

  10. Think I solved puzzle number 1.
    1. Re7+ Kf8 2. d7 Kg8 3. Re8+ Kh7 4. Rxd8 d1=Q (4… Kh6 5. Rh8#)
    5. Rh8+ Kxh8 6. d8=Q+ Kh7 7.Qf8 ( or even 7. Qxd3)

    Oops. Guess I didn't solve it.

  11. Didn't see all the moves but got it after a time

  12. Зачем так размусоливать? После ладья h8 мат в пять ходов очевиден.

  13. 3:29 why not queen d7 King h6 queen h3 black queen h5 block then queen d7 checkmate on next move

  14. Nelson, this kind of chess studies surpass any imagination. Thank you.

  15. Dude, this is bogus. If I'm playing black, I'm going to trade by light bishop for white's pawn. When white plays pawn to d7, I'll play bishop to b5. That white pawn is going to die. My three advanced pawns are worth more than a rook because I'll get a queen. Queen + knight beats a rook any day.

  16. I learned how the rook gets sacrificed, from GothamChess.

  17. There is a faster way to win with white

  18. Awesome!!! That’s bud. I really enjoy learning from you.

  19. It's "North Macedonia". Macedonia is a greek territory

  20. Cool puzzle but the simpler solution at 5:10 would be Queen to C7 check, then checkmate in 4 moves without having to capture 3 more pieces.

  21. At 3:20 I was convinced that the next move for White was to move Queen to F8, but then I saw that Black can just move Queen to A1 to Check.

  22. Chess is such intriguing game. Ancient say it imitates battle field and I agree

  23. It is situations like these that enable lower elo players to defeat higher elo ranked players

  24. I got it first try, but not your way. You are mistaken about there being only one move, if you want to finish in the fewest moves there is a better option than Q-c7. It's Q-f8.

  25. I don’t think this is right. About 8 1/2 minutes into the video you said the only move that isn’t mate in a couple moves for black was g3. But, why couldn’t black play queen g3, where the king defends the queen and gives a check? If white took the queen, black would have a king and a pawn versus whites king, and it would be a win for black. Still an interesting video though

  26. 3:16 Can anyone please tell me why we have to do all this Qc7 etc instead of just Qf8 with unavoidable Qg7 after that?

  27. The checkmate in 30 that stockfish says I missed and that cost me 40% of my accuracy

  28. Not difficult !. Chess is always gentlemanly logic.

  29. What would be the outcome if instead of getting a queen black moves the bishop to F5?
