  1. I don’t see how Bg7 changes anything. Black puts the king on f8 after Qh7 no matter if Bg7 or Bxc3. The moves stay the same and the only difference is white still has a pawn on c3. g5, Bg7, Qh7+, Kf8, Qh8+, Bxh8, Rxh8+, Kg7, Rdh1, and black still can’t prevent R1h7#

  2. Getting better. I got #1 easy – but 2 to 5 i was off by 1 move each time. #4 was the hardest. I needed to go through the full continuations of all the moves I saw like the QxA7+ in puzzle 3 and look at all the knight moves. But overall much better than the last video. Keep ’em coming.

  3. Great great great! What I liked so much is how you told us how we could see the moves in the position. What would make us see the moves. Thanks!

  4. 2:43 Could you not take the b5 pawn with the knight, black retakes with queen, dark square bishop goes to a7 and thats checkmate as the bishop is linked with the a1 rook. Checkmate in 3.

  5. Although on puzzle no. 5 I got the same answer as you I wonder what would have happened if after white pawn push, black moves dark square bishop to g7. Would that be enough to cause white to change its plan of action? At that point if you put your queen on h7 for check, black will put it’s king on f8 and that would be kill that plan of attack.
