  1. 10:36
    White is winning after knight to g6
    If the king stays on 8th rank, then, knight X e7

  2. The move combination is 1.Qxf6 1.gxf6 and then 2.Ne7+ forks the king and queen and white gets a Knight up.

    Tactics used- Decoy and Fork

  3. Great video indeed and i like how you are organized and direct to the point

  4. Why would you record yourself inside an echo chamber? Do you not want me to understand your talk?

  5. Hallo I'm 11 year old thank you for your help sir I have a tournament tomorrow in my school thank very much

  6. Did someone else discover the better move for white in perpetual check example

  7. Last puzzle : First take the bishop by sacrificing the queen then after black takes with the pawn then knight e7 is a royal fork

  8. Queen takes f6 pawn takes f6 knight e7 check the tactic is a fork and queen sacrifice this is a nice puzzle and i liked this video ❤

  9. Nice puzzle at the end… but I got it!

    Q takes B
    G7 takes
    N fork on E7

  10. Best move for white is queen to f6 and when black’s bishop take our queen we give a fork by placing our knight to e7 to win material

  11. Qxf6,gxf6, Ne7+ and after king moves knight takes queen

  12. In perpetual checks knight to g7 check the only legal move is king g8 and then knight takes on e7 bishop it will fork the king and queen😮😮

  13. Answer is. Q xf6. GX f6. And in E7

  14. Queen takes bishop on f6 then g takes queen then ne7check king moves then n takes queen

  15. White queen take the bishop
    (QUEEN SACRIFICE ) TACTIC
    knight to e7
    ( FORK ) TACTIC

    WE WON THE BISHOP HOHO

  16. Puzzle solution:- sac the 👑queen by taking bishop to f6, pawn takes queen and then knight to e7 by forking the queen and the king.

  17. Sir didn’t understand “Forcing a slatemate” move..why black will not capture white & then come down to checkmate..?

  18. This was a very interesting video
    At 14:48 instead of Qg8+ couldn't you do Nf7#

  19. Queen takes bishop on f6,then pawn captures the queen.Knight forks a King & a queen.Then white wins a queen.☆☆

  20. I have a question about underpromotion. I can imagine a lot of scenarios where underpromoting to a knight is winning, but what situations would require you to underpromote to a rook or bishop? The queen already covers both diagonal and 90 degree lines, so wouldn't it cover every case you would need a bishop or rook? Please let me know if there are any examples because I'm quite curious. Very good video btw 🙂

  21. three fold repletition : JUST GET THE QUEEN… GOD….

  22. The best move is queen to f6 and the pawn captures and knight to e7 is fork

  23. Great content!!! Plz, chess tactics puzzles app to train

  24. Plz, list of chess tactics puzzle app beginner, advance and…

  25. In the Perpertual checks white has a big royal fork

  26. Sir, thank you for sharing this.. Are you a grand master? What is your Elo?

  27. First sacrifice the queen for the bishop and then the pawn takes the queen then the Knight will pork the queen and the king and then we get material advantage

  28. In 10:38 , can't just white play knight g6 and take the bishop and the queen?

  29. Would the last puzzle be Qxf6, gxf6, Ne7+

    The black bishop is protecting the e7 square. When queen takes it, it leaves that square vulnerable, so when black takes back, knight to e7 forks the king and queen and after the king steps away you win their queen. Overall you win a bishop in that sequence of moves

  30. Qxf6; sacrifice queen and then a check with knight and capture black queen. Wow! we are a knight up. Amazing video with so many tactics and insights. Thanks.
