    In -10:25 after the move 1.Qh5, need to know that even after 1... g6 White wins: 2.Qxh6!! Rc1 + (Bxf6 only shorten the check as follows mate) 3.Rxc1 Bxf6 4.Qh7 + Kf8 5.Qxf7 #

    Good video!!! Thanks!

    What about .. Qe1 Ne4, preventing the check, and now the best line I saw was .. RxN RxR Ne3 RxN pxR and then Qxp+ for white.  Or if Qe1 Ne4 would you just push the pawn to d2?

    Since we're talking chess/English, the GM made me remember my professor's explanation on a poem by e.e.cummings... so simple, so complex.. the right word on the right place... the right piece on the right square.
    Thx GM

    Amazing:
    First he got in my mind and saw all my variants, then, instantly he "became" a GM and show his piont of view!!!, once again, amazing and thank you for this videos!

    I think that at the end there you should add in calculating Nf1 as a desperation defense forwhite. It fails to Qxf1 and Ne3 once again, but black definitely has to see it.
