wait but what if black play kb2
I have a weird reccomendations : give martin 2 kings and checkmate both of his piece at the same time, for ex : if 1st king is in checkmate but 2nd king is not, then its not a win (you cannot take the king)
I immediately thought of the opposition of the kings so the black king is trapped. Ironic that both pawns were a move befofe becomings queens, but black still lost… Chess is impressive
Lol, I’ve seen the move and then started looking for: “ok, then what? Black can go…. Wait a minute” hahah
This is cool puzzle.
Black King c8 and black pawn a7
White pawn h2 and h3
Where white King must to be if white want to win to game? Only 9 squares is win and rest squares got only draw or lose.
'Impress strangers with this"
Strangers: "this horse looks cute …what is a bishop?"
damn I missed that mate I said knight the opposite side
i was caught off guard too!
How about bishop e6 after pawn c3 then bishop b3 and just eat the pawn using the king and knights?
Also that is a perfect checkmate. Every square is covered once.
I saw Na2 but didn't realize it was checkmate, I just wanted to buy another turn to bring the king or bishop over

All are stock fish move
The top comment spoils the whole video.
Hi great Stuff 👍 Is there a logical approach to solve chess puzzles or problems? I wonder if there is a formula or some kind of step by step methodology. If so can you do a video about it? Thanks and greetings from Germany
0:10…gotta bring the king in, right?? Doesn't make sense to either move knight or bishop, you need to keep them both on the board while preventing pawn queenings. I would think Kg5 would be best. 🤔🤔 (Edit: I thought so.)
1:56…silly me thought of Bf1+ first, but that's an ineffective check because it doesn't dislodge the defender of the Black pawns (the king). Let's see…maybe Be6+?? 🤔🤔 (Edit: correct, but I'm gonna call this a miss on my part because of my first thought that was incorrect.)
3:10…this one's easy, Be6+. 😁😁
3:23…uh-huh. 🤔🤔 I feel there's something amiss if you swipe the b-pawn…I say Ke3. (Edit after 4:23: you almost had me there, Nelson, not gonna lie. 😁😁)
4:45…Na2+ is my call…WAIT A MINUTE!!!! That's a CHECKMATE…!!!! 🤣🤣
Thank you for another great chess puzzle.
I am saying this again solve the entire puzzle with telling all the moves or not solve at all you continuously pause after each move take chess talk best youtuber of puzzle solving
Why not kb2🤔
No one took anything
I guessed that Na2 was the best move at that point, but didn't immediately realize it as checkmate.
But are there players who could see these moves in a real game??
Thank you for this video! I am CONSTANTLY finding myself in this position, and now I know how to checkmate with Bishop and Knight! Just let black have two connected pawns on the second rank!
Hey Chess Vibes, thanks for all the great content. Any chance you could make a video related to Correspondence Chess? I've learned to play chess in those slow games and struggling to transition to playing on the clock. I thought my 2000ish rating was good, but do correspondence ratings even matter? There's close to zero info on YT about this. Cheers mate.
Great find! Thanks!
because i go around showing people chess puzzles
Edit: i was kinda correct
Cant you play bishop to f5 stopping the left pawn and use the horse and king to stop the other?
4:45 I saw the checkmate.
You know the puzzle is hard when the easy part is the knight and bishop checkmate
That mate was so amazing, that caught me out guard
I wasn't ready for that ending😂😂
What if blacks first move is king D4
What if instead of pushing the pawn, black played either Kb2 or Kb4?

When I said Knight a2… I wasn't expecting to win the game 💀💀💀💀
what's even more impressive is flipping the pieces so black wins
From the Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual, the chapter on checkmates.
White wins… well, after taking the two pawns you have to remember very very well how to make a checkmate with a knight, a king and a bishop… it's not easy at all.
what if we started with bishop to f1?????????????
Ehmmm… and if Kb2 instead of b2?
OH! I was surprised too, nice one!
What step am I missing in order to bring my puzzle knowledge to games? I get the puzzles when I see them, however I never play in a fashion that would get me a win, or at least something as easily solvable by myself when I actually play
This series is superb. Nelson explains analyzes the positions like probably none of the other experts. Clear and comprehensive. Thanks!
Man, I've been playing chess for 60 years, and the game never fails to surprise me.
Amazing! I would never see that in a million years!
I always love analyzing these with Stockfish to see what it comes up with as the actual win based on best play, and they're always far more fascinating than the intended solution. In an example of top play, white DOES have to capture both pawns, without losing either piece obviously and it takes a while, but of course the longer part of winning is actually checkmating black with bishop and knight.. 41 moves 🥵
