Great puzzles!

2. Fjodor Mihailovich says:

Bin ich das erste?

3. colourmegone says:

Your analysis of the first problem is faulty. The difficulty with White playing Nd4 immediately is a1=Q which pins the knight. If Black plays KxN as you suggest then White plays Bxe7. If a1=Q then Bf6+ wins the queen and the game. If Black tries Ke5 to control f6 then Bf8.

4. Jesse Leija says:

2/5
#2 was a VERY creative way to force a draw. Great job Jerry

5. Mr Wp says:

12. Orbsydorb says:

@orbsydorb oh its stale mate

13. unclemeatster says:

@ghfreakwierdo123 If Nc7+ Ka7 then Qxa5 forces Kb8, where playing Qb6+ is mate (after the bishop interposes and is taken.

19. Irfan Gondal says:

wow. awesome puzzles

20. jale says:

that last problem was a little mind blowing

21. HotblackDesiat042 says:

Had trouble with #2, as I kept looking for a way for white to win.

22. kolibrizas says:

That is the best chunk of combinations I have ever seen in my whole chess life. Jerry <3

23. ChessNetwork says:

@colourmegone Good eye! Thanks. 🙂

24. HotblackDesiat042 says:

@DiamondDaveLeeRoth Kc2 after Nd2 will result in the same stalemate for black as if you played Ka2, because following Nxb3 and Kxb3 black is left with no possible moves.

25. ChessNetwork says:

@kolibrizas Great! 🙂

26. ChessNetwork says:

@jojo1337 Thanks jojo. 🙂

27. xenophon58 says:

In the third problem after white plays h4, gxh4 is not forced. Black draws with Be6+. and no matter what white plays black will be playing gxh4 on the next move eating white's last pawn and white will not be able to mate him. It looks to me that white will have to play carefully to even draw. ex Kxe6 gxh4 and it is 6 pawns against the bishop. A couple of sloppy moves by white and he could lose. Love your videos.

28. ChessNetwork says:

@xenophon58 White still wins. Kf6 & Be7-f8#

29. Mwuesse says:

In the 3rd puzzle, is it not also possible to win by playing Bf6 (or Be7) instead of moving the pawn forward? Black is forced to play g4 to prevent mate, and then white can push his pawn to promotion since blacks pawn blocks the view of the bishop.

30. Drecon84 says:

#5 was pure poetry.

31. OkabeRintarou says:

easy….

32. m83 says:

I didn't solve any puzzles, but they were fun ponder upon. Could happily announce mate in 6! when that 5th position appeared in one of my blitz games. Impressed my opponent.

33. yuvraj chaure says:

honestly all beyond me

34. Big McLargeHuge says:

0.5/5 lol thanks jerry

35. yurt yurt says:

I'm seeing all of these solutions, but I can assure you I lose from position 4. I give myself 3 moves before getting my king and queen forked.

36. dumpnchase says:

Thanks for the puzzles.

37. Eugene Foo says:

0/5 🙁 favourite was 2nd

38. Ivan Cortez says:

39. Reza Rayasa says:
