    Superb video. Thanks, Danny. I was hoping for something on Queen and Knight v Queen, with defending K near corner, a pattern which has come up a couple of times for me in Tactics Trainer (with poor results). Now for the next video.

    very nice. Having a name for a mating pattern helps to remember it. It's not a verbose definition, but just a simple name which the student familiar with the concept can understand and recall quickly.

    One minor but interesting correction. Anastasia’s mate has nothing to do with the last Tsar’s daughter. It takes it’s name from the novel Anastasia und das Schachspiel  (Anastasia and the Game of Chess) by Johann Jakob Wilhem Heinse. Since the book was published in 1803, it clearly had no connection to the Imperial Princess (Grand Duchess) Anastasia who was born in 1901.

    In the case anyone (like me) tries to write down the names during the video, here is some information: Wait till the end, Danny has a list for you at ~26:00 ;)

    I went over all Danny's Basic and Paterns videos a couple of times before the Big Enchilada tournament in Raleigh and won my section ( under 1800 ). My first win in a tournament. Thanks Danny... You're the best!

    Qxe5 only delays mate for one more move. Black need not move the queen, dxe5 does the job well enough without relinquishing the pressure.

    Actually, I just looked at the last one. Mate can be avoided with qxe5+ required the black queen to take back, giving enough time for the temporarily saving Rb4 followed by Rh4 if Black plays Rh8 which would temporarily end any mates. But it's still such a clear and distinct win black could rightly resign
