Hi all! It's Saturday again which means a video analysis of today's daily puzzle! The lesson today? Don't snap-take pieces that look free. Analyze, even if it's only briefly, the resulting position and make sure your opponent doesn't have any tricks.

In today's puzzle, that knight on a8 looks really tempting to take after black plays Bc7. But why doesn't it work? Take a look at the video analysis and I'll break it down

How did you do today? Did you solve the puzzle? Did you get greedy and take the knight too soon? Comment below!

If you liked the video, please hit subscribe/like/comment on the video! I'm always curious to hear your thought process. Also, if you have any suggestions on other content you'd like to see on my channel/blog, let me know! I'm very open to ideas.

Until next time!

Nick
