Reply 3:28 'You have lots of different options', like Qe8++ maybe 😀 Reply Who was in the “Most Popular” section thing and scrolled all the way down? 🤭 Reply lol the guy narrating the video is definitely low rated. Reply No theory at all, useless video Reply 2:07 is not stalemate black king can go to b7 Reply 3:22 You showed Kc8 Qe6 (when Qe8 and Qc7 are mate) but the obvious best move is Ka8 there. How do you win in that position? Those are the kinds of things we click on these videos to learn, anybody can find these simple mate in 1s and rook forks when theyre there. The technical side can be tough bc, for example, Ka8 Qh8 Ka7 (Rb8 Qa1) Qg7 Ka6 (Ka8/b8 Qg8) Qd4 looks good to me but idk if that wins or not, I just cant see what black's next move would be, due to my small amateur brain Reply @3:30 its mate on e8# Reply 2:05 Kb7 Reply getting your king to c6 with their king in the corner is tricky as hell Reply 2:07 you sure about that chief how about the square your mouse is on Reply HIMself instead of h-self or 'himself/herself' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spivak_pronoun (my own variation is h for his/her/him and h-self or for h(im/er)self. lol.) i expect this from josh waitzkin in chessmaster which is a million years old, but from a 2019 video? hmm… Reply I just had to draw a game because I didn't know how to do this. And it was a much higher rated player. Reply …Rd7…Kxd7…Kb7 is won for white, no??? If I'm wrong…blame me, but if not….be a chess site with correct commentaries…. Reply Adds r getting more & more. Also longer. That is Addstube Reply 6:37 this is going to be deadly,Yeah , thats called mate in 1 Reply After 3:28 I had to stop watching. Qe8# is immediate mate, no reason to fork king and rook first with Qe6+. Not a very helpful video, I have to say. Reply Need to check the theory for errors before publishing it. This video is full of errors. Reply 2:08 it's not stalemate king can go on white square down Reply 3:27 ummm mate in one.2:07 ummm not stalemate.Ummm didn’t watch any further Reply My PC always tries the stalemate – this end game is hard – the King is in the middle – what to do? Reply 2:08 this is not stalemate Reply @2:10 : "Has no legal moves"Me: Stares intensely at b7… Reply 2:06actually, the king can go to b7 Reply Speed: 1.5x Reply How do separate the rook and queen? Reply There is no straight forward method to solve queen vs rook endgame. I mean tackle any random position with perfect accuracy. The way to solve this is to reduce the initial position to next lowest distance to mate position. For example if the initial position is 10 moves to mate then the goal is to reduce it to mate in 9 moves position then to 8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1.

Reply 3:27 queen c7 just wins Reply How can we create philidor position. Plz tell 🙏 Reply 2:08 Kb7????? Reply I dislike this video. You didnt show properly how to make the checkmate from a normal position. First video of yours that ill give u a dislike. Reply Useless info Reply Not particularly helpful. You cover two specific scenarios, but in any other situation I have no idea what the strategy is, or what to do. Reply I don''t think you explain this endgame well enough. Often you claim that it's obvious that a move doesnt work and move on but as a 1400 rated player i have no idea what your talking about. Reply In the second position..move 2: queen d2 is winning faster Reply In the position where you said black can give up the rook for stalemate, the king has the b7 square. Reply Not so helpful, just the well known Philidor position and a very special random one. It would be interesting to know how one can systematically get the Philidor or any other winning position. Reply I got to 2276 on Lichess without ever learning this so I'm watching. Reply Nice. But how about starting the position with the king and rook in the middle of the board. Reply 2:11 how is that stalemate?? Reply I am around 1200 i just lost a game on time cuz i couldn't mate with queen vs rook xd Reply 2:04 Reply Just blundered a draw in a queen v rook endgame, so I'll watch this Reply 2:07 that is not drawn b7 Reply 2:05 The king has b7 White is still winning. Reply at 2:06 is not stalemate. still black can go to b7 Reply Comments navigation Newer comments Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
