    Thanks so much for this.  I'm a beginner and never really understood the power of the bishops together.  This is a great video and I will definitely look for these patterns in my own games.

    I just watched your first two videos in this series and I must say for the first time after watching a video on chess.com, I feel like my playing has improved tremendously.  It's beautiful art when you make the queen  sacrifices in the first two series to create a mate. I will watch the next three videos tonight before I play live chess again.  I think these videos are the best kept secret on chess.com.  Thanks !!

    Once again, a most instructive video. It is so important to thoroughly understand mating patterns I order to develop a plan.

    Audio is horrible. Sounds like Star Wars sound effects.

    Great lesson, very poor sound as mentioned by several chess.com members. Please record the sound again (since the complaints are over 4 years old now).

    Another great video. Deflections can be so tricky to see. I love watching these videos over and over. Great job.

    I dont understand in the why it is check-mate in the second example, because i thought the queen could be taken by the pawn in g7? can someone help me understand this?

    at 16:48 no points no credit! if you miss that you are not paying any attention, always ask yourself what is my opponent's plan, here black is threatening mate, you must note this or you are only paying attention to one side's pieces, in this case your own. watching half the pieces on the board is not paying attention! great vid zibbit, sorry for picking on your terminology, as always your analysis is correct, but didn't like the way you phrased this, even rank beginners should see this, it's one ply!

    Love these lessons and Ingvar has a really good style of presentation; I really must find more time to work through all these videos. Makes the subscription fee really worthwhile. Sound quality is pretty poor on this one though.

    Great content but not easy to follow at times due to the quality of the audio..

    Very good content but the sound quality is horrible. I think it is a matter of the audio being compressed too much.

    At 17:39 it looks like black might also try Bxg5 which stops Qxh7#, but there is still a mate on the board.
