Thanks Daniel, for these great series and your sense of humor!!!
What does "Double exclaim of the auch" mean?
Not getting the "Play Key Position agains Computer"; Tried starting with Bxf6 , & after the Queen takes, pushing E5. But that fails. I tried leading with E5 first opening up the diagonal, but that fails too, or I'm just not seeing the continuation...If you don't want to post the answer, you can email me...
Great cap to a great series!Thanks
great video really helpful
awesome vid seies make more on check mates rock on
unfortunately, you cannot find Klondike bars around :(
Greetings from Mexico City
No SmokeMonster, I did not. I have explained my fun use of this term before:
"Exclamaviatch" or "Exclamovitch" is something I used for more emphasis/respect -- like ther Russian Surname of adding "ovitch" to the middle name of every son, based on their father's first name.
Example, my coach Igor Ivanov's middle name was "Vassilyavitch" because his dad's name was "Vassily".
That's it ...
Thanks to all those who enjoyed the videos...
Did he say "double exclamation biatch" ???
Great series!!! Good Job.
Watched all of them 2 or 3 times each.
My game is getting better because of your teaching.
Great video series ! perhaps on these same lines, a series of frequently occuring opening traps would be good. Organized by openings.
@Abhishek2 -- Right you are sir about both -- BUT mating with the pawns instead of Qg5 is much cuter ...
For the record, and I believe another member commented about this, e6+ in the first example (Fischer's Trap) is not correct in view of Be5 for black. Accurate is g4+ and after Kxg4 Rg1+ does the job in a couple moves...
Because you said you love to be corrected, here are some corrections I would like to make.
At 13:21, Qg5 is checkmate.
At 30:55, R1b7 is checkmate.
Thanks Daniel, your videos are my favorite of all the instructors. Ps I went to ASU. Hope things are going well out there!
Im going to be busy watching these videos over and over...Awesome
Killer video. At 16:08, is there anything wrong with Ne4 as opposed to "the brillaint Nd5" as the lead move? Both hit f6...what am I missing?
Also, I feel the need to say that Legall's mate is extremely common in low-level (my level :P) chess. Got the chance to use it in a game just the other day!
What a fantastic series. I learned a great deal, my rating increased, and the games I play are more enjoyable. Thanks Danny.
If you like this than get the book "1000 Checkmate Combinations" at Amazon. This has to be one the best chess books I own and I own plenty.
By Khenkin,originally a Russian text I believe.
PS: I am looking forward to the "Rencsh Mate" in the future!

IM Daniel Rensch brings the mating nets portion of this video series to a close today with a "random collection" of patterns that somehow did not quite fit into the previous categories. This gathering of "misfit mating nets" should serve all those wondering about more general techniques to attack the enemy king, both castled and un-castled. Enjoy!
