    Its weird how you can just pick up one point which has a massive impact on your learning. You put these videos across in such a way that it is impossible not to see an improvement somewhere in your personal game. Thanks David... keep this fantastic series going.

    Level2, no smothered mate will be coming there, although it's clear that black is winning. Smothering the King is impossible, as the queen would still cover f2 from g1. So Nxh3+ Kh1 Qg1+??? would be a terrible blunder.

    David, terrific video, and this hybrid series is probably my favorite of the site. They are so instructive, and I get a chance to sort of play along while having an International Master whispering in my ear what the thought process should be. Keep these coming !!

    good find madhatter! I think I just saw one mate and went with it ... but keep my missing mate in two in mind, because its not the first time! Thanks for the comments everyone :)

    Love the ending to that last game! If white decides to keep his queen then black gives a smothered mate!

    yea at 7:45 Rh3+ is forced mate in 2 after gxh3 and Qf2# as mentioned by madhatter5 (the knight is pinned so gh is only move) sadly this was missed in the game, would have been a pretty finish I think.

    Is Gareth in the same room as you?  Is that why you're whispering?  I feel like you're in between telling a bedtime story volume and NPR book show volume. All the same, always a great video DPruess, keep them coming!
