    Just watched all 5 of your mating vidoes in a row.  Best 1 1/2 hours I  ever spent studying chess.  Now it's time to go online and start playing.  Thanks for taking the time to make these videos.

    Excellent video series Ingvar. I hope you do more, they are very important ideas to learn for new players to the game, as well as others that want to brush up on their tactical knowledge, and some of these mates are very difficult to find. It even got Karpov, among many other victims. Thanks again and great job.

    in the 2nd skeleton diagram there is an annoyanyance because there are two solutions with the same amount of moves that are different patterns. a great puzzle should have only solutions that apply to the theme being presented. minor annoyance because in instruction it is not clear which one is prefered or better (neither, it is just style) and this muddies the issue. the skeleton with the Q can also be played with N7+ Kg8 Nh6+ (double check) and mating with the queen (another forced line besides the solution!). why babble about this, i watched zibb's other vids and he's a good teacher so i can't help but notice it!

    Great lecture, very detailed with tons of relevant examples.  Chess teachers needing lecture material should get their pens and paper out.
