Instructive as always
At ~9:50 after Qa5 Rxb7+ Ka8 Rb5+ White should not grab the Queen, but rather go .. Kb7 Qxc5+ Qb6 Qxb6#. Or do I miss anything there?
Very interesting lesson, I'll have to go premium to get the full video...
Thank you Coach Bojkov.
If @4:54 ...Re2 then there is Qxf4 1-0,
Thanks for the helpful list of five things to look for!
This lesson also shows why you should almost never trade into opposite colored bishops if you have an extra pawn. If it's an endgame, the other side has drawing chances, and if it's not an endgame, your pawn might be irrelevant because attacking the king is what matters.
brilliant examples and instruction .. thank you GM Bojkov ... EddieB
at 4:54 Re2 wins
Very instructive! The video is also about how to be patient and consistent: I stop counting the checks white gives after a while lol
by GM Dejan Bojkov
GM Bojkov keeps adding pieces to the board, but the opposite colored bishop keeps marauding. Here we see positions with multiple heavy pieces, which gives the attacking side an even greater chance to crash through. He also gives five simple rules for positions like this. Learn them and you'll be able to conduct some scary attacks!
