Excellent use of examples to train the mind to see the pattern! 03/08/15
On Sunday July 19, 2015 I watched this video and enjoyed it. Thank you!
amazing video series
Just watched 4 of 5 of your mating videos in a row. I LOVE this series. One more video to go and than I will try to apply some of these patterns in real life games. I will send you an email the first time I apply one of these patterns and win. Thanks
Well done again, I love your video series. Seen them all a few times, I am watching again to see if I can remember the more complex versions of them, and I couldn't in some cases, lol. If I took much more time maybe, these mating possibilities pop up all the time in games, and it is really critical for people that want to improve, to master them.
it might have been three years ago but i disagree with daJhoony, Ingvar's colloquial manner is engaging
Great video series. I got a lot out of this course. Well done!
Now try this tactics trainer puzzle :
Kramnik v Gelfand Arabian mate puzzle is now on tactics trainer :
I wonder what rating it will settle at...
Great series FM Ingvar!! Thanks for coming up with all the examples to really show how to find and impliment these patterns. Much more educational than presenting the pattern on an empty board.
I agree with Roman...mate is mate in any country Qxh7#
straddle, I've had a few drinks as well, plus some jetlag, but I agree Qxh7 is mate in thebrauns85' puzzle
i am a beginner..also not a good player so im here to learn more deep about chess to make sure i could play chess more better after this..
I love this series also. Seeing the mate patterns over and over helps.
unless I've had too much to drink this evening, why is 4. Qxh7# incorrect? Why the unnecessary bishop capture in your puzzle?
Good puzzle, but it is simple.

Not knitting patterns, not sewing patterns, not flight patterns but checkmate patterns. The Arabian Mate is the focus of FM Ingvar Johannesson’s part 4 of Intermediate Checkmate Patterns. This video features grandmaster games that illustrate the very practical winning tactics opportunities made possible by recognizing mating opportunities and using tactics to realize the win.
