    Great video, small mistake though. at 15:50, He said 3+3=6 and the rook worth 5 so It was a gain. But he missed the fact that the bishop took a pawn so it is actually 3+3=6 5+1=6. Therefore it was an equal exchange that worsened black's position because it ruined his 3 line of pawns.

    Thanks for this very informative video. That is what a beginner like me needs.

    Very relevant for entry-level players like me, who face this very often. Thanks for the crystal-clear explanation. I watched this video yesterday, and later that evening - not 30 minutes after I had watched it, actually! - a person played the 2. Qh5 attack against me in a live game here in Chess.com! I recalled the first sequence you propose, and defended correctly. The guy resigned a few moves afterwards. Thus, I am watching the video again today to refresh on the second sequence, too. Much appreciated, my friend!

    nice, I remember using the scholars mate when i first learned chess, you should show the 2 move check mate for the beginners also, some thought it wasn't possible to mate in 2 moves, but its a funny one when it happens,lol all beginners should know it...

    Thank you very much for the video! We need more like this--directed to the beginning and intermediate players who often find themselves losing before even getting out of the starting gate. These are wonderful ways to punish the early and eager Queen developers.
