    this is not exactly a beginner checkmate because in some games people fAIL TO DELIVER CHECKMATE WITH KNIGHT AND BISHOP VS KINGOR BISHOP AND BISHOP VS KING. ROOK VS KING IS A BEGINNER LESSON

    If you dont know the pattern I doubt you will be able to do it within the 50 moves needed. It is tough but it is a forced win, as shown.

    Nice video from Elliott (together with Valeri Lilov my two favorite instructors on the site). From 35:12 onward, it's unfortunate though that the same technique that got white that far is put overboard. The white king suddenly moves away from the 6th rank and the zigzag movement of the knight between the 7th and 5th rank is put on hold. Why not continue the way we started, as described on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishop_and_knight_checkmate (Wikipedia calls it the "W-manoeuvre")? It's almost a complete mirror of the first couple of moves, which makes it easier to follow:

    Be4 Kd8

    Kd6 Ke8

    Bg6+ Kd8

    Bf7 (remember the Bh7 move?) Kc8

    Nc5 (remember the Ne5 move?) Kb8 (if Kd8 -> Nb7, Kc8, Kc6. See 32:52)

    Kc6 (remember the Ke6 move?) Ka7

    Nb7 (remember the Nd7 move?) Ka6

    Bc4+ (remember the Bd3 move?) Ka7

    And in the same vein:

    Bd3 Kb8

    Kb6 Kc8

    Bf5+ Kb8

    Nc5 Ka8

    Be6 Kb8

    Na6+ Ka8

    Bd5#

    In the end, just make sure that the white king is a "knight's move" away from the black king and everything will be fine. Good video to practise one's mating technique, even though in real life the position is rarely played.

    Great video, if only it was easy to grasp with a couple of viewings, all the infomation is their. I just lacked the abilty to absorb it quickly, but due to it being well presented i return to it time and time again
