  1. Bishop takes pawn at f6.. then black move his bisop to g8 to prevent checkmate at (rook h8) then knight to g5 check and black#'s queen gone.

  2. knight to g5 Pawn has to take or black will lose his Queen then Rook to h8 is a checkmate!

  3. Night to g5 and then if pawn captures then rook to h8 and game over , and if bishop does not capture then you can capture the queen

  4. Knight to g5 (Check) white sacrifice Knight . If Black captures it on G5 then White rook will move to H8 Checkmate. If Black realises sacrifice and also doesn't take the Knight then knight captures queen . White is up material of Queen. Another move also for white is to capture black bishop on E6 by rook. If queen captures rook on E6 then again Knight will move to g5 (check) also attacking queen on E6 black have to capture its knight then rook to H8 Checkmate. I Black queen does not take rook on e6 , playing king to H6 to run . Then also rook to H8 Checkmate. So many variations are there…

  5. Answer to puzzle: Knight to G5 , Pawn takes G5 then Rook H8 #
    If he doesn't take G5 then the queen is gone

  6. Night to g5 , pawn takes knight ,rook to h8 🤝

  7. My Favorite is Semi Slav Defence And Puzzle Answer Is Ng5 IF Black Takes Rh8 and if dont then Kh3

  8. Ng5, If fxg5 then Rh8 is simple checkmate, else there can be Kh6 Or Kg7, the sensible move is Kg7 to attack the rook then Nxa3 Kxf8 Rxe6 and we are up too much material which is totally winning.

  9. White knight to g5, black pawn takes knight, white rook to h8 check and mate.

  10. Chess Talk: We can understand he is trying to gain centre control.
    Me: We can understand he is trying to play the London System or the Queen's Gambit

  11. 0:43, I always have trouble playing against my opponent when they make 4 moves in a row.

  12. 1st Answer : Rh8# Kxh8 2. Ng5

    2nd Answer : Ng5 fxg5 2. Rh8#

  13. Puzzle answer-
    1. Knight g5 check
    If pawn kills knight then Rook h8 mate

    2. If not then king g7
    Bishop kills the pawn and that's a check, king h7 rook h8 mate
    3. If king goes to h6 then we will move rook h8 check and force the king to move away and kill the queen

  14. Knight to g5 is the best move according to me

  15. Puzzle answer
    Knight F3-G6, Fol king the king and queen.
    Pawn takes Knight, Rook to H8 is beautiful checkmate.

  16. Kinght to g5 then black pawn takes and rook to h8 is a checkmate

  17. Anytime it's the king's Indian Defense

  18. I like to use this against d4 I like the Austrian and the Grau variation in blitz, but in classical nimzo and slav are main favorites good video

  19. Dude great explanation!! Just won a subs 4eva.

  20. Knight to G5 and check. Then if knight capture with pawn then rook to H8 and checkmate else black will loose their queen

  21. @Chess Talk I'm Sid. Thanks for your chess videos. These videos are very helpful. I won 3rd Prize in Chess Tournament! 🙏

  22. can you please do a detailed video on the london opening? IT would be really helpful

  23. Bishop takes f6 queen takes f3 rook h8 checkmate

  24. Bird opening is vey good for black in this position

  25. Knight b5 Check to king attacking Queen pawn takes then Rook a1 skewering King Queen

  26. Knight to g5 giving an check and foking the queen so black has to take and after it rook to H8 is a brutal check mate

  27. puzzle: Ng5+…(if g5x, Rh8++ | if K moves away, NxQ)

  28. Puzzle answer is f8 rook capture to f6 pawn then black plays his bishop to g4 to attacking knight and saving his bishop then white plays his knight to g5 its a fork to king and queen then last hi save king, and queen is gone…

  29. I always play nimzo indian against d4, but i really need another one against it, any recommendetions are welcome

  30. Puzzle Solution: Ng5+, fxg5, Rh8# (Please respond if it is correct.)

  31. Regarding puzzle, knight to g5 forks king and queen. Pawn has to take. Then, rook to h8 is checkmate.
