Great video! Thanks so much! I'll have to rewatch the upside down and side ways examples again, but I get the general concept :)
That was a really strong video for someone like myself who is a intermediate player trying to improve game. I will get a woody the first time I get to use this checkmate pattern in a real game. Going to watch the next 4 videos tonight. Thanks.
im going for this every game
Makes you want to play and use it.
Thanks. This video has drilled the pattern into my mind. I am going to watch for it from now.
Thanks. look forward to sending someone home crying to their mama !!
Had temporarily forgot Anastasia's mate but now remember it thoroughly.Thanks
Very intresting i wished i found this series a few months ago.
Awesome! I can't wait to spot this pattern for teh first time . Thanks Ingvar.
Muu Ha ha ha ha!
this... guy... talks... way... too... slow!
I love your series!!
"I'm not doing anything.....yes I am....Kg2"
great video very well presented to spend all the video on one pattern will help me rember i think
I liked your video very much as well. Always a good thing to know when playing chess, is basic + checkmates. I've seen this mate in tactic books, but your video is really more instructive. I've also seen this video before as well, sometime ago, its worth watching numerous times, memory can be fallible. (especially mine). Thanks for sharing it, I really wish there were many more videos like this one.
Would be much better if the microphone would be better !
Very helpful. Thanks for sharing real games & some info about them to bring it alive, rather than just showing a few patterns - that was great!
