What a great, informative video. Really explains the pattern from the inside out, upside down and sideways (literally!)
Wonderful video- I had to watch it a couple time for it to sink in, but feel I understand home to set up Anastasia's mate. Great job.
Thank you, this is a very good lesson
A job well done on your part, thank you very much
Thank you, this was very enjoyable to watch and great information for a new player like me to learn.
Thanks a lot for this video, Mr. Johannesson! You take your time focusing on one theme. That way I remember it. Not talking too fast or covering too much in one video. A perfect example on good teaching skills. Looking forward to watch the rest of your videos.
WOW! What a concise and well explained video on Anastasia's mate. Thanks for putting together a collection of games to "drive home" the point on how to "see" Anastasia's mate and then execute it. Bravo!!
Very nice video, like how you focus only on one theme. it helped to retain the infomation
Thanks a lot, I will refer to my earlier games to check how many times have I missed this mating technique. I am sure it will in tons, but I am equally certain my opponents have also missed it in tons.
Awesome! Thanks Ingwar for the video, God bless u.
awsome vid... very clear and easy to understand... I will now go and watch the rest of your videos...... please make some new ones thanks
Surprised to find Thor here, thought he was more a chessvideos.tv guy, but i was glad. Ingvar's vids on tactical patterns on this site and others are the best i have found so far. i admit though that i do not search around a lot or have watched many vids yet, but his teaching style is well rehearsed (his carving style is well rehearsed-FZ). Expertly organized and clearly recorded and spoken with clarity. PS don't think he rehearses at all, just wanted to sneak that quote in!
Nothing like ramming it home! Nice examples, great video.
Thanks for the video! Really helpful!
I really appreciate that you showed us how this pattern emerges in a game. Thank you and I look forward to watching all your video's.
