  1. lol black looking like very noob player 🤣🤣🤣😂

  2. What happens if White moves pawn to g6 at 2:00 , black king would ahve to go back and then White would checkmate with queen h8?

  3. BTW man thanks for the videos they are great!

  4. If at 2:00 g6? then …Ke8 and then after Qh8+ black would play Rf8

  5. @DailyStuffs Neither side had an opportunity to put a knight on c4…

  6. great video, plezz make more on attacking kings side castle!

  7. @fckdahlloff if g6 black king goes to f8, so isnt checkmate. U saw a winning line if Ke8 but is a bad move.

  8. Odličan video Mato! Svaka čast! Way to go!

  9. If g6 and king goes f8, then you have a checkmate on queen h8… If however, as Mato says, g6, Ke8 Qh8+ Rf8, then the game continues and white has lost two pieces

  10. Thats right… i said exactly the same but in reverse xaxaxaxaxa I said e8 instead f8 and vice versa xD

  11. Ahh ok 🙂 Kf8 would be a fatal move, so best not get those mixxed up when playing xD

  12. In the 19th century, lots of games seemed to be played in this swashbuckling manner.

  13. I'm absolutely addicted to your chess videos, Mato, damn you.

  14. Sorry,about your addiction. I have addiction too. I am addicted to making chess videos.
    I hope we will grow out of our addictions eventually.

  15. But it's a good addiction, of course. Fairly cheap ;{)

  16. Watch my playlist: world chess championship 2012

  17. great video like all yours but you forgot something… where is vienna??? lol

    Thanks for your videos

  18. Mato, I'm confused when you say that there is no checkmate for the hypothetical variation you show ~1:57. Couldn't white push his pawn to g6, forcing the king back? Then the white queen gets a back rank checkmate on h8?

  19. Black King would go to e8 and Qh8 check can be blocked with Bf8

  20. Black can block with bishop and even with rook

  21. You're dead wrong with that. If you enjoy sacrifices, watch the games played by Tal 😛

  22. brilliant. wonderful presentation. thank you.

  23. Is it a brilliant attack you ask? All I know is that if this were me playing, I'd be black, not white.

  24. you're wrong mato at 2:01 there is check mate. all white has to do is move the pawn up, and the king is in check, and has to make up in the 8th rank, and then its check mate by queen.

  25. Black could move king to e8 and then move his rock down to the 8th rank to block the queen.
