    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...

    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 Wink...

    Thanks to all those who enjoyed the videos...

    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 Tongue out...

    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... 

    Thanks everyone!

    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.
