2 people asked why White can't just take the black pawn at F7 with the white bishop (at 5:48). The reason is that if White did that, the black queen would take the white bishop, and then if the white queen took the black queen, the black king would take the white queen, and the end result would be a LOSS of one white bishop and a simple trade of queens.
Why can white play Bxf7 after Qe7?

Long ago I overheard someone say, "There is a huge difference in knowing the rules of chess and knowing how to play chess." I've known the rules of chess since grade school but am only now starting to appreciate the brilliance of the game.
Thank you for helping me (re)start learning! It's infinitely fascinating.
THIS IS SO HELPFUL. I am in the USCF it is tomorrow
