    09:03 Puzzle of the day: Can you find the win?

  2. Puzzle:
    1. Q:d4 N:d4 2. Nf6+ Kf8 3.Bh6 mate

  3. What I find funny about the ponziani Steinitz gambit is that in a lot of the variations the bishop is hanging but it's a while til you take it

  4. 7:24 I play this opening all the time and I won with exact trap
    thank you for that

  5. 9:08 I know this opening trap
    Qxd4 black is losing no matter what they play
    but if Nxd4 Nf6+ Kf8 Bh6#

  6. I hope that l can speak English very well to thank you alot from my heart you are a gift and the best

  7. ANSWER TO THE PUZZLE:

    1. Qd4 (black must take or lose a piece)

    1… Nd4

    2. Nf6+

    2… Kf8 ( king slides )

    3. Bh6#
    ————————————————————–
    if 1…. Rg8 (same combination of steps continues). Nf6+ and Bh6#
    if 1…. Rf8 Nf6# ( checkmate immediately.
    if 1…. Nd5 or Nf5 ( Qh8 #)
    if 1…..Ng8 (Qh8 threatens Qg8# mate or wins queen. )

  8. This puzzle was in one of the first Chess videos I’ve ever watched and made me try the english opening, of course it’s Qxd4, Nxd4, Nf6+, Kf8, Bh6#, beautiful stuff

  9. Solution to puzzle: Nf6 ch Kf8 (forced) Bh6 mate.

  10. 1. Qd4 wins. If 1. . . Nd4 2.Nf6; Kf8 3. Bh6

  11. What if in the first opening the black player plays pawn to g6 instead of Nf6 after you played Qd3?

  12. 1.Qxd4 Nxd4; 2Nf6+ Kf8; 3.Bh6#; A wonderful puzzle!

  13. You know what……thank you (me that has been brought this far in the game by you)

  14. I needed that trap against the Dutch! Thanks for another great video GM.

  15. Trapping your opponent usually doesn't work and leaves you with a worse position / material than if you just played your usual game.

  16. Qxd4, Nxd4 due to threat against rook with check, Nf6+, Kf8, Bh6#

  17. Sac the Queen with 1. Qxd4 and if …Nxd4, then boom…
    2. Nf6+ – Kf8 and 3. Bh6#
