    At 07:25 after bh6, instead of re8, what if black playes bf5 with tempo on the queen?

    And at 08:11 instead of Qa5, what if black playes bf8?

    Don't mean to be negative or anything, just some moves i considered for black than may not make the rook sacrifice work.

    At 9:38, I tried to figure out the move and got Qc4 instead of Qe3. Is Qe3 better? Great video.

    fantastic way to serve tripple teaching. Pawn structures. Attacking/defending tactics and thought processes.

    The only thing I saw in this video *sad* was that you don't have to settle with Qf3 in the end. The Rxe2 theme saves us again and mate with Qg1 follows :) I see charile Johnson points it out too!

    I'll have to view the series a few times and play it through on my own a lot for the next month to really get all three teaching ideas to stick.

    Love the video. I've gotten pretty good at forced mate puzzles, but I'm still quite lacking in attacking middle games. Hopefully that will come soon.

    Hate to be a buzzkill, but after 28:40, all the moves Danny suggests are losing. Qf3 loses to Nd2, when white's position is secure. Likewise, Qh3+ Kxf2 Ng4+ loses to Kg1, when black runs out of checks. 

    The only answer is Rxe2!  Any recapture allows Qg1#. Any other move allows black to play Rxe1+, winning the queen.

    I did not use computer analysis until I had worked through the lines on my own.

    I think I see it  Bg4 hg4. Rxe2 then Qg3. Can't take the queen since the f2 pawn is pinned, right?
