    In the third game why not ...Kh6?

    Tactics literally means ways of touching. In chess, it translates to the ways of attacking your opponents pieces, because the word attack (a-tack) literally means to touch repeatedly or continuously.

    A fork, attacking two or more pieces simultaneously, is one way of attacking, one tactic.

    A skewer, attacking a piece which is on the same line as a less valuable piece, is another way of attacking, another tactic.

    1. Bxh7+ Kxh7 2. Ng5+ Kg6 (2...Kg8 3. Qh5 Rd8 4. Qxf7+ Kh8 5. Qh5+ Kg8 6. Qh7+ Kf8 7. Qh8+ Ke7 8. Qxg7#) (2...Kh6 3. Nxe6+ +-) 3. Qg4 f6 (3...f5 4. Qh4 transposes) (3...Ne3 4. Bxe3 Bxe3 5. Nxe6+ +-) (3...Nf6 4. exf6 Kxf6 5. Ne4+ +-) 4. Qe4+ f5 5. Qh4 (threatening Qh7#) f4 6. Qh7+ Kxg5 7. h4+ Kg4 8. Qg6+ Kxh4 9. g3+ fxg3 (9...Kh3 10. Qh5#) 10. Qxg3+ Kh5 11. Qg5#

    You have to highlight the blank space above to see my answer to the puzzle at the end of the video. I think I got everything. This specific pattern works thanks to the e5 pawn, which divides the board in two, and to Black's undeveloped queenside, which keeps 5...Rh8 from working.

    Great advice....try to identify and understand the details!

    Excellent.  Question: How do I go about setting up my own studies in this way?  That is, how can I find a number of games with similar endings?

    Great video. I have used this specific combination many times, sometimes I won, sometimes I lost. Now I understand how to judge in advance whether or not the sacrifice will succeed. And I can extrapolate this idea to other "speculative" sacrifices as well.

    I enjoyed it very much.  I could never feel the nuances of the slightly different positions.  For me, a piece sacrifice always seems to get me beat, except if I can see checkmate in a couple of moves.  I find that the "feel" I thought I had for the position was just a toilet urge.  Wink
