    I found Ra1, but missed Bc4, threatening Ra2 and winning the queen.

    Great video, Ben Finegold. Thanks!

    nice game, in the opening, a greedy queen is always close to the death square, watch out guys...!!!

    How does a FIDE GM screw up so bad as Black?? This shows how you have to recognize mistakes when they happen. Great example!

    This video is truly epic!! Ben you are an amazing chess player and you have that brilliant laid-back attitude and humour that completes you as a person, a brilliant trait that unfortunately so many GM's lack... YOU - are a TRUE GRANDMASTER!! Cool

    I always admire self-effacing humor in any context.  GM Finegold combines great humor with chess instructional brilliance, a rare and wonderful confluence.

    Ben great video!  Your game last night was brave and stunning!  That sacrifice that won the game for you was very very nice and you could have drawn with that guy easily but you went for the win as black.  We were watching it on chess.com/tv and wow! Nice job.  Nice win here too!

    When you show this position to masters, do you tell them they're trying to trap the queen, or just show them the position? Because with the knowledge that I was trapping the queen, it only took me a minute. 

    SPOILER WARNING

    First, I checked the most forcing line. Ra1 leaves black with only one move, Qb2. Then, I realized that if I could play Ra2 safely, the queen would be trapped. So, Bc4 covers the a2 square, and the queen can't take advantage of the extra tempo to get out of the way.
