  1. the best move for white Bg5>Pawn take bishop.> queen to take pawn forces to checkmate

  2. Bishop f7 and another bishop attack on pawn and if takes the bishop that's a stunning checkmate

  3. Brilliant bishop sacrifice then a stunning checkmate after taking pawn

  4. 3:02 in this case what if black plays pawn to d5 to save the knight?

  5. solution: –
    white Qe5
    if black blocks with Be6 then, white Qe6 is a checkmate
    if blacks captures Queen with f pawn then, white bg5 is a checkmate

    if black captures Queen with d pawn then , again bc5 is a checkmate

  6. Dam the 7/11 accent really blends perfectly in chess coach videos (not try to be disrespectful I loved the video and will be checking out some your other chess content)

  7. We will play our black bishop to e3 , when he takes it with pawn, we would take it with our queen giving him a checkmate

  8. We sacrifice our queen by playing it to e5 if pawn takes queen, bishop c5 is checkmate, but if black block the check with bishop e6 then Qxe6# is a checkmate too

  9. so cool ! by the way can you make a video about sacrifises

  10. Bishop sacrifice E3 to G5 is the best move for white.

  11. How to becoming mehmood kalicharan in just 2 hours?

  12. Qe5+; and both squars of white's black bishop is covered for mate if pawn f6 takes e5 Bg5# if pawn d6 takes e5 Bc5#

  13. I have different move like Bishop to g5 Pawn have to take this bishop and Queen g5 is a mate

  14. Your videos are excellent boss, I didn't know a horse from a donkey where chess is concerned, but after repeatedly watching your videos I am also becoming smart in chess😂

  15. P C5 so then when the pawn takes then the bioshop takes and white is in a better position because of the light bishop and the quenn trying to prepare checkmate

  16. Queen to E5 is the best movie sacrificing the queen to open three mate ideas.

  17. 6:31 chess puzzle

    Bishop g5 pawn takes g5 than queen takes g5 is a checkmate

    Or queen e5 sacrifice for other checkmates

  18. Well, it is not the best one but I think bishop to h7 is a good move for white😅

  19. Bishop goes to g5 pawn into g5 means Queen e2 be6 Queen into e6 mate

  20. Sacrifice the bishop and then check mate

  21. no one ever thinks even a bit to sacrifice the queen😔
