Thanks again Grandmaster Dejan Bojkov.
wesley walsh rules
i know him
as a rubbish chess player but reasonable trainer I would like to say this is the best chess instruction video I have ever seen. ty
Thank you for a very informative lecture. All the examples were right to the point. Please keep these lectures coming. Now if I can just use this information in my games ...
very good indeed and extremely well presented
That was incredibly instructive
The lecture was convincing and comprehensive.
well is very interesting how chess is so relatevely it supposed that a bishop is better but mm is very relative as i said
Hey, Nata, it is always very delightful when I see you positive opinion posted :)))
Marvelous lecture! Again, not one wasted word. I'll be replaying it to absorb the principles you illustrated so well. Thanks!
Great lecture, very informative!
Thank u very much Dejan Bojkov, I used to not understand why knight and queen are better than a queen and bishop!!!
i love how many examples there were, thanks for this great video. you touched on some of the openings that can achieve the favorable piece pairs; one thing i'd like to see is not just how Q+N works against Q+B once you have it, but what positions preceded these situations where a player saw the opportunity to simplify into these winning combinations of pieces.
If I have a Queen/Bishop vs Queen/Knight on the horizon, I would guess I need to try to exchange the Ladies.
Very good lesson_thank you!
Seriously superior video, thank you:))
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Grandmaster Dejan Bojkov continues his video series describing how to effectively use the different types of "piece couples" in chess. Today he moves on from the rooks and bishops to discuss the most powerful "attacking duo" in chess. As GM Bojkov displays for us here, the "Batman and Robin" team of Queen and Knight are capable of creating mating nets in multiple fashions, while also targeting weaknesses all over the board. Enjoy!
