This Endgame is CHESS HISTORY 04.10.2023 #shorts #chess Post navigation PreviousNext 222 Comments Comments navigation Newer comments Why wouldn't you just make a queen and do the exact same thing you did with the rook? Makes no sense Reply ruy lopez was also a spanish priest i think.. the moment i saw spanish pries that's the first thing came in to fckn mind Reply What’s the background music? Reply instead of moving ra2 black should have moved rook to other columns of 4 so that he can avoid checkmate Reply Holy shit Reply I hate these puzzles. Like how tf is the black king where the white took starts Reply That music felt like this was some epic fantasy battle😂 Reply Bro may Was a priest but had some discussions with devil to find this line Reply Wow, what a cool puzzle, and I like how enthusiastic you were lol Reply Why not take King from b5 to C6? Reply promotion to da-rook :)))) Reply For those who don't know, Saavedra composed this ending as a "White starts and forces a draw"!!!As you can see in the video after promoting a queen, and… setelmate. Only years later, one of the solvers decided to check what would happen if white promotes a rook.He couldn't believe his eyes. 😮This is a WIN for white!!For years no one checked this option, assuming that a rook vs. rook ending was definitely a draw, but it turned out to be a win for white.If not this amazing story behind the problem, it is doubtful whether this problem would have received global publicity and someone would have remembered it to this day…Miracles happen.❤😉 Reply Phenomenal! Reply wow….just….wow….that's beautiful Reply Is this just clickbait? If you make it a queen it still acts as a rook…. why would the person play differently from promotion to rook than queen. Stupid. Reply Magnus did this in a blitz game Reply I have a trick by which black xan win he can simply move the rook to all over D2 and when the queen or any piece is promoted the rook can check the king by coming to B2 and the king cant ko go to C file as then the rook will pin the king to theq queen and if the king goes to A file we will simply take our rook to A2 and the king cant kill the rook as it is protected by the black king and so the game will ultimately lead to draw or blacks win Reply ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ Reply He looks like he’s still a virgin 💀 Reply Debussy. Great song choice Reply “Promote to a Queen? No.”Promotes to queen Reply You can do the exact same with a queen. Queen and Rook here have the same function, but for some reason its assumed making a queen will turn you 50 iq dumber and get into a draw Reply Rd2 is stalemate actually Reply i know this endgame from a lesson with my teacher. i still react to it the same as back then Reply Song? Reply This is so pretty Reply What Reply I have another idea which I cant seem to see the fault in. What about after pawn to C7, Rd2. Let them make a queen. You keep checking. Reply I don’t get how a rook acts differently than a queen Reply Saavedra wasn't actually spanishHe was born in what today we call bolivia, if we are talking about the same Saavedra of course Reply Hahaa I was shown this puzzle while playing a few games with a chess club. It confused the hell out of me because of the repetition. I completely forgot you could underpromote Reply BELIEVE ME OR NOT but your thought was to take the rook with pawn Reply Sorry I'm new why rook better then queen Reply I hope one day someone watches a short about a puzzle I created in 2023…… now I have 5 months to make a puzzle 😂 Reply My GM teacher show me this puzzle very good Reply Cant you do the same with queen? Reply The music 💀💀💀💀 Reply Another banger from the niga jamal Reply Why is the rook mate different that if the queen was there in the same position? Reply How the hell is king from here to there Reply Piano song? Reply Worked really well with Claire de lune Reply I'm still confused why u can't turn ur pawn into a rooke Reply Nice bgm Reply Keep it up homie Reply Claire de lune 😙👌Always reminds me of tobey maguire's spiderman's theme song Reply My end game is pretty decent for my rating, middle game for sure needs work Reply That Spanish priest got this directly from God Reply Japanese Empire 1945 eas alarm Reply No way people actually think promoting to a rook makes a difference 😂 Reply Comments navigation Newer comments Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
