  1. 10:20 ne6

    I played that openning tonight, even though I didn't know this ahead of time. I'm avoiding learning too much about opennings right now, as I want to find them out. Pawn on c3 makes sense to lock out their knight on that side.

  2. In honor of the bogus arrest warrant put out by petty dictator for this great man.

  3. About 20 seconds because I saw Ne6 first and had to check the king moves before I saw the Nf3 solution.

  4. 7secs to solve the puzzle of the day
    Sol '-

  5. The solution of the puzzle is pretty counter-intuitive, the solution is Nf3#. The knight which is defended by the queen, covers e5 and g5. The rook which checks the king covers e4, f4 and g4. And the bishop covers e3 and g3

  6. I found the correct move, but it took me more than 10 seconds. I loved the Italian Game example. The instructions were very clear and easy to understand.

  7. His politics preclude my asking that warmonger anything.

  8. Knight f3 is mate. Thank you for another great vid 🙂

  9. Garry Kasparov is back with Chess!!🥳😎

  10. 2:04 Logical immediate reaction to Bb3 is Be6, since white will have lost a tempo if they were to exchange bishops.

  11. This attack does not work as nobody ever plays Qd7 (5:54)
    Rather they play d5 and you need to respond.

  12. Is the last puzzle one of thsoe where its black to move and you play Kg5 to mate yourself in on move

  13. Your videos are extremely helpful. Thank you.

  14. did not find it, look in the answers, then the light bulb went off. Guess I have a long road ahead. Thanks

  15. Wonderful lecture, I got mat in on in about 3 seconds, but frankly this was easy

  16. Nf3 is the solution to the puzzle, and it didn't take 10 seconds. I just looked at which squares the king could still move to and asked where I could move the knight (delivering discovered check) to cut off those squares.

    To be fair, I am not sure I would have seen it if I wasn't made aware that a mate in 1 existed.

  17. On move 6, would it be just as well to play A3, so that if the Knight attacks, the Bishop can move back to A2, maintaining the pressure on A7, rather than the less active C2?

  18. Boy !Oh Boy!!! My opponents are in problems after this clip….I cant get enough of GM Igor Smirnov. thank Smirnov. I always look forward to learning from you.

  19. We are preparing for king size casle, please add vedio what if castles on queen side.

  20. But there are some alterative Black moves i saw that were not covered

  21. @GMIgorSmirnov would you mind covering if Black Ng4 instead of Bg4? What would be some ideas coming from that? Thank you.

  22. instead … ..Na5/B-b5+,P-c6/B-a4,(if)P-b5/Bb3 … and can then P-a4,..

  23. Nf3! Discovered checks are so brutal!

  24. I needed 2 minutes to find checkmate in one… but I'm not a GM 😁😁

  25. Kf3 took me a while to find this …

  26. I think Igor already covered this a few months ago. It's still a good refresher course though.

  27. I'm a long time italian player and this system is best, i would always either castle kings side or trade light squared bishop and then lose or draw a drawish endgame, this way I'm winning more games by italian with almost 83% accuracy.
