Excellent video! Playback voice quality has deteriorated a bit.
That's what we already need. Pattern with many examples on it.
Thanks a lot
It's great that he sticks to one pattern, and repeats using examples of increasing complexity from real games. I feel like that was an efficient way to not only teach a pattern, but also how to really understand the theme. Good stuff.
Short and sweet. Great lesson! Thanks
On Saturday July 18, 2015 I watched this video on the Anastasia mate and really enjoyed it. Thank you!
Great series , thank you
Fantastic ! very usefull thanks
Great video, everything well explained! And that is most important.
This is a good reminder, I had forgotten this one
@11:05 isn't Qxh7+ and then Ra3 equally good.
Great video! Thanks so much! I'll have to rewatch the upside down and side ways examples again, but I get the general concept :)
That was a really strong video for someone like myself who is a intermediate player trying to improve game. I will get a woody the first time I get to use this checkmate pattern in a real game. Going to watch the next 4 videos tonight. Thanks.
im going for this every game
Makes you want to play and use it.
Thanks. This video has drilled the pattern into my mind. I am going to watch for it from now.
Thanks. look forward to sending someone home crying to their mama !!
