Chess Knowledge With H1


Hey, I'm H1Chess. I started playing chess in a unusual way after losing to my big brother left and right, just trying to get better. Then, I got a PS2 game called Chessmaster. I practiced everyday until I was able to play stronger opponents at tournaments. Since, I've been playing chess for 13 years and teaching for 8 years, I want to share my experience training people to become a better Chessplayer. Recently, I've started two things last year. First, I created a chess podcast called "Chess Knowledge With H1." Secondly, I started a YouTube Channel. Thirdly, I created a Skill Share class to teach more about chess. Check them out to learn more about chess.

1. Introduction: Hey, my name is Dave I, aka H1. I go by H1, Chess knowledge with H1. And I've been playing chess for about 13 years, then teaching chest for eight years now. I have taught chess now only in my high school. But after high school, I taught chess all around Kansas City and elementary schools to high school. So I have experienced teaching kindergarten to 12th graders, to seniors. I have experienced teaching. Now. I've played a chess tournaments. I got first place a lot. My official USEF rating is 8800, but I'm mostly played online. And so my own my rating is around 2100 on all time controls. I lead my high school as a coach and a player to get it first-place prizes. Now, how I learned how to play chess is from my brother. And for this we're just calling it p money. My brother P money taught me the basics of chess. My brother P. Money had a PlayStation 2. And the game that he had was chess master on the PlayStation 2. And so I trained on that game the remainder of the time, learned about forks, pins, openings, and all these other grandmasters. And that's where I got most of my knowledge as a fifth grader. So here's the thing. We will be talking about, the greatest games of all time for a reason. Because there are certain things that we shouldn't forget about that was in the past. In the past. That chest principles of the past can be with us today. So just sit back, relax, and enjoy the lesson that we're going to be going over today. Because it will be a doozy. You will learn something and it guess what? It's going to be fun. I promise you it is. So just sit back, relax and enjoy the show of H1. 2. Activity Rules Over Everything!: Day is h y. And we're going to be going over again between Paul Murphy against the Duke and the count. And yes, you heard me correctly that Duke and the count are partners. They pretty much tag team each other in. They was playing against one person, Paul Murphy. Now this game is called the opera game or something else. I forgot the other name, but it was played in 1858, and this game was played in the Opera House in pairs. And so after the Duke was kinda like begging polymorphic to play, yeah, polymorph. He sat down and played against them and they consulted together as partners against more for you for some reason. And this was a famous game because it pretty much displayed the value of combinations and the importance of development. So let's just get to it right quick. Okay, Let's get into it. So this is the game right now, let's get into it. What opening are we going to have here? We've got E4, snap, E4, E5. They're fighting like real men. That's how they're supposed to fight. What E4 and E5 and that F3, D6. And this is back in 858. So these were some important moves back then that you're not going to see no new openings like the Berlin that was played back then. Those are computer moves were in real chess, baby, real chess. And so what happened here? We got Bishop G4 doing this pin, and we're in this like Philadelphia type of position right now. The Philip door defense, we're going to see how white used to defend, attack the Philip door position. So let's get into a quintics. F3, D takes E5, mashups, C4, threatening check made right here. So black has to do something to defend against checkmate. So what the black Do they did and I F6, a developing move, Quibi 3. Now we're attacking these two ponds, the Pono F7 and upon OEM B7, right? And so now we've got Queenie seven nights, C3, C6, and Bishop G5. Now look here. If you see this position right now the computer is going to pick the evaluation is crazy, stock vicious, pretty much given y the plus 3.2 in. So if you look at whites position, we got four pieces that is developed. White took control of the sensor. And how they took intro is what the pieces. So white did a mess around or waste any time developing their pieces. Because if they would've, they would have been pretty much in blacks predicament right now, if he looked at black's position, right? Blacks position is horrible. What is this night doing? It's pinned right now. Why do we move this query right here? Had to, because this query is that B3. So this clean is blocking this bishop. So since this queen is blocking his bishop, this king is never going to castle on the king's side where it is safest. Now, this night has to move for the king of the castle clean side. But since we moved this bishop, I don't know how that's going to happen if we bring them to the center to cover the D file so that the king don't castle. And because we don't want our upon us came the castle if they let us keep on creating different ideas or different plans. Okay? But whites position they are up a lot of time. And not only a lot of time, but they have a lot more space in a lot more quality. And I'll be discussing those regularly. And these games, Now, how I discussed these is time is leading a development. Space, is just conquering more squares than your opponent. And then quality is just making sure that each one of your pieces has a mission, a purpose in life. And then I might add King safety structure in there. Sometimes just pretty much it in certain positions, its value, and then a certain position it isn't. Now king safety is self-explanatory. If your cane gets us saved and everything else is absolutely. Okay. So King safety, as utmost important, is to just be in the back of your head now pond structure, nothing is around the pond structure right now is pretty symmetrical. And when I say some magical, I mean, since each pond is like pretty much looks the same as. So each pond on the white side pretty much look the same as each pond on the black side. So this is mainly going to be about peace activity, since there's no dynamic pon, duels and which we will go over that there's no dynamic pawn structures right now. Let's continue on with the game B5. Now this move wasn't the best move. I'm not going to lie. We could, uh, did something better probably. Night A6 baby or I don't know. This b5 was not the move. Because after this move, what happened was you just move back with the bishop, right? It's, it's probably not the right idea. This is way too slow, way too slow. If you move back with the bishop, you are given black in advantage. And we don't want to give them an opportunity to come back and the game. So there's something that we have to do. And it's very crucial. It is night B5. Night takes B5. And after C takes B5, Bishop takes B5, check attack in the black king. Then after night, B7, B7, what's next? Develop more pieces and keying in the cane casts doubt on the king side. It's safe. It's good. But there's better. And what's better than that is Katlyn on the queen side. Okay. Rick, D8, have to defend the night. Have to, there's no other choice, right? And blacks position is getting more miserable. All these pieces are in this little square. Just look at it right now. It's horrible. All these pieces are defending. They have no endeavor to do anything more than defend. And the best defense is usually attacking, but black has no opportunity to tech to attack. Okay? And since black has no opportunity to attack, why is just flowing out with all the forcing moves, all the checks, captures, and threats. So rook takes D7, automatic winter, right there. Look at that move, that sacrifice. When you're in a position like this, you should be looking at all of your sacrifices, all of your checks, all of your threats and threats. I mean, like maybe you're threatening checkmate or brightening another piece or acquainting what a pond or something you should be looking at all you're forcing moves and these type of positions. And if you see the rest of the game, It goes like this. A remember, polymorphic was facing two people, the duke and the account rep takes D7, rook, d1. This ROC cannot move because it has bishop is painting this piece and a pin is basically that there is a, pretty much a more valuable piece and front, right? And this piece cannot move, because if this piece moved, then this Kingo be in danger. And you cannot put your king, it's a danger. He cannot put your own king into checks. So this piece is pinned to the king because the king is the more valuable piece behind it. So after that, the queen move, which it takes the 79, takes the seven Queen BA sacrifice. What happens after night takes BA? Because that is a legal move. Rook da, checkmate. So here's the thing. Developing your pieces and opening is important. Never forget it. Never forget to use your time to beat your opponent. Because usually whoever is faster when the race, Okay, Jess is a lot different. You got to be the fastest to win baby, come on now. You gotta be the fastest to get this sound. And who doesn't like when it. Okay, the next game is going to be much more important. But you had to know this game to know the values of development. 3. If Your Opponent Don't Castle, Attack'em!: Hey, I'm glad that you came back and then adjust this little chess club that we got going here. Okay. And I'm, and I'm excited that you want to even be a part of this little system that we have because it's very special. It's very special. And it's good for you to know the greatest games ever played in history. So let's get into it. This next game is by William Steinitz and Kurt Von barred, Del Mar, del oven. We're just going to call it that. And for you to know pretty much what's going on at this time, there was a chess club and English town of The Hastings that was founded in 1882. And in 1895, the club organized a tournament that was the strongest ever held up to that time. William Steinitz was part of last year into rash and many more people. And this tournament pretty much had a few memorable masterpieces that was created. So this is one of the masterpieces that was created, and I guess say one of the games that was the greatest of all time. So let's get into it. A willing abstinence against Kurt Von. And let's go. So we've got this game, the greatest of all time. Let's continue on to the next moves. Okay? We've got y4, y5. Everybody played y4, y5 back then. So don't be expected to know c4 some before none of that was played worker lately. So night F3, Nicea segues, bishops see for bishops, C5, C3 night, F6, D4. And so now we've got a talented game, classical variation, Center attack. Etags D for C takes D4 bishop before checking the king. And now we gotta do something about that. And what are we gonna do about that? Because they're checking our king. They're gonna take this paan. What's going to happen next? We've got nice S3. And the next move was played, which was the five. Now, this is a variation of taken this pond because this night is pinned to the king. This knight can never take this night on E4. That would be impossible. But this is an opening and usually castle king side is the next move. And we go along with Bishop, take C3 nowadays be take C3. The night doesn't take C3 because of Quibi three and there's a lot of traps. So let's get back into the game. And the move that was played back then was D5. Now what happened after d five? E takes the five night, takes D5, castle king side, Bishop E6. And now we have the ship G5. Bishop, E7. Bishop takes D5, Bishop takes the five night, takes D5, cooling takes D5. Bishop takes E7, night takes a seven rocky one. And this move is the beginning of the end. And it is the beginning of the end. Because notice here, black cannot castle on either end of the site. You can't castle on the clean side or the king side. Because if black tried the castle, this night would be taken off the board and eliminate this isn't going to find the night because it will actually be taken and sent somewhere to the shadow around, like it can't be found. Right. And so like had to figure out how to deal with this pin, because this pin was not easy to deal with. So black tried to do F6. F6, move the king over here, bringing the rug down here, and manually try to Castle the king because what is important is key safety. The Black ever get that came to be safe. Let's see here after Queenie to write because quantity to as like a good move the play to just threaten something. You always wanted to make each move. Have a purpose, have a threat occasionally, because you want your opponent to not just get away with their plants so easily. Right. So after that 27 protected and night Rick AC1. Now we got all of our pieces in the game as white. And after this, C6, D5, D5 be taken in multiple ways. What happens after that? What was the idea of D5? Why was this a masterful idea? Well, after d five C takes D5, you gave your piece and extra space and only piece that didn't have a job yet. An important job yet was this night on F3. Not all. F3 was doing nothing in this pond. On D4 was restricting it. So, you know what White did night before King F7 and bolster the next move, 96, really weak square. And after 1906, rook, HCA, just trying to trade pieces. Because when you're in a bad position, you want to trade off pieces. You don't want to just keep on being in a bad position because the more pieces you trade off, especially if you're king is in a center, the easier your position will be. You have a cramped position. You trade. If you have the space and opposition. If you're the attacker, you do not trade at all until you have a winning position afterwards. So point G for G6, G5 check. And this is kinda, kinda hilarious because this check is very important. We're checking the king and we're attacking their queen. And don't forget about this piece that we're attacking two, even though we won't take it. Kanye, a rook takes E7. You thought that wasn't gonna take it away, did you? Thought so? Okay. And this piece was the partner to take so that we can get that barrier away from the king. So King FA. And guess what? This cannot be taken. This can not be taken because our rook E1 came the six query before. And rook CA, see Nazi eight, S5 and queen F4 and King C6, and not be rooks E6 and King B5. And this is just horrible. There is no way that King is getting away from white. Already a fork right there. There are so many ways for black to lose. It wasn't saying 96 checkmate and 14 right now. That's how powerful white pieces were. And so after Rookie one, then, wait a minute, wait a minute, go back this position, right? Because we don't have that much time. But after King F a rock F7, King G8, roof G7 came take because I would take, came take, because a rook takes CA, and then rotates. And at this point, Steinitz, black resign, and he walked away from the table. But Stein is demonstrated immediately afterward that there is a mate and 10 moves. Okay? And this may started off like this. It follows king H. Wait a minute, wait a minute. Did I, Did I get it right? King G, a rook, G7. King, queen H4, takes queen H7. Kenya cafe, queen HA, Kanye seven, Queen G7, Qing Da, queen, Queen G8. Keen E7, queen F7, Qing Da, queen FA, queen E8, night F7, key the seven Queen D6. In all of this was seen by Steinitz. These grandmasters are in same broad. This is why you should be learning about these games. The greatest games of all time. 4. Sacrificing A Queen For A Beautiful Attack!: Hey, this is A2. I'm glad that she could be here. So that weekend witnessed some more good games. Okay. And this game is one of the greatest of all time because you already know anything that revolves around Bobby Fischer has to be a good game, right? Good. I'm getting notifications on the foam escaped the fun. We got a good game here. And the white pieces, his first name is Donald. Against the black pieces, What's a fissure? So let's get to it. Let's figure out what happened. And why is this the greatest game of all time? Okay. This tournament was the third term of the series, the third Rosenwald I'm trophy, which was in 1956. And let's just get into the game right quick. If you're ready. If you're ready, like seriously, you have to be ready for i can't just be like, I don't know. You've gotta be ready because we're going to be fast because I don't got that much time. Okay. Let's get into it. Was was the first move by y, by Donald. Okay, so we got night F3 and night F6, C4, G6. And I see three Bishop G7, d for this. Just normal moves, castle king side, bishop for D5. So we gotta English open, Anglo-Indian defense. Kings, blah, blah, blah, baba, baba, right? There's, this opening is named something. And then we got Quibi 3 D take C4 quintic, C4, C6, E4, night be D7, wreck D1. And we're, we're both developing. We've got an IP six and in the gang were threatening the little bitty queen, right? Because we can't capture that. And then we weren't going to scoot up to 20 C5, Bishop G4, a bishop G5, right? Which, oh, wait a minute. Well, well, well, Well, well, this G5 was not the best move. This to GIF file was not the best move. The best move is actually just Bishop be to just develop pieces like normally, because this king is not castle. After Bishop G5, there is, there is something in the air, right? There are some spotty census Alice flowing within Bobby Fischer to do the right move. And what was the right move in this position? Was night A4, queen, a three, night take C3 for go on the right series of moves. And at first glance, one might say, or think that this move only helps white and create a stronger like ponds structure or whatever. But fishes plan is quite the opposite. By eliminating the C3 night, it becomes possible to sacrifice, to exchange on night, takes four, okay? And then white sensor while the king remains trapped in the center. Okay? So we're going to smash that center by taking this night and keeping this king in the center. And Bobby Fischer knew this plan and it came natural to them. This was blacks natural plan. Night takes E4 so that we can get to the king. Bishop takes E7, quaint B6. All right, then I react to this. This is nothing. Take this rep, I don't care which gonna do about it. Bishops S4. What happens if they just take the rook? Well, if they just take the rook, we take the bishop attack and the queen Quibi three, night take C3, queen takes B6, a take a takes B6. The king is still in the center. We can do this diagonal. This night is still pin. We're going to take this pond where attack in this rook, there is not going to do about this. This is purely horrible for white in this position just because decided to do this stupid move, Bishop G5. Now, everything can end in a flash. If you do the right moves, queen B6, bishops, C4, night take C3. Kind of mean, I know, I get it. But bishops, C5, f, 8, checking the King came GEF one. Now this rook is never going to get back in the game. It seems like because the king has to either move back out or move this up, or push this pawn up and move that came to G2 and then get the rope back in the game. But that's if. Why it has a few more moves. So black has a do the honorable thing, and keep on threatening whites position. But how can you do that after that move? This sharp E 6. Now, this is the game of the century. But this should be 6 is the counter of the century baby and Fisher offers as quaint in exchange for a fierce attack on whites king, right? Why is scared at this moment? Because if theta's the client that's Kwame there, it just doesn't work out. Does look at this, just look at this. Take this, wait a minute, wait a minute. Let's do like a natural move, right? Let's do. Queen takes E3, seems reasonable, right? Seems really reasonable. But then we have quintic C5, D take C5. This should take s3 still in a good position. Even if they do some move like a head. Oh no. Well, let's do best. What, what could be a good move in this position? Like, let's just do king G1 or some, something like this. Well, we were just given away the spaceship. So this bishop is definitely being said. Let's say we just move the bishop back. Then we got this move night B5 attacked and the queen, and there's no way for y to get out of this predicament. So white just took the queen, takes that king G1, night to E2, check, right? Kinda F18. Night takes D4 came G1 night to check King F1 night S3 check came G1. A takes B6 attack and the queen, cane take this because at a bishop, blacks position is really good. Recta for cooling takes me six. Okay, we're just going to go on with the moves. Rope takes A2, King H2 trying to run away. Night takes F2, rick Y1, trying to trade some pieces. Rook takes E1. We did trade some pieces. Bishop f, 8, night takes one, bishop D5, night, F3, night before Quibi, a, B5, h4, h5, night E5. Black has too many pieces. Came. G7, King, G1, Bishop, C5, King F1, night G3. And now black is hopeless because there is mate. There is Mate on the way. Kinky one. This should be four. A little bit dramatic, but came the one, bishop B3, King C1, night, E2, came B1, night S3, King C1. This not Bishop. Oh my goodness, I just messed up the whole thing. But ROC C2 checkmate block in these moves right here. The bishop is the fin and the road the cane, cane capture the queen and night aren't doing anything right now. Not even attacking anything that loan material. This, this is just a game over. There's nothing to do about this. It was pretty hopeless from the beginning. But you never know. Bobby Fischer could've messed up, but he didn't know that he was, but the greatest player in the whole world. He didn't know that. He didn't know that. It was a great game. But there are more games to come. So come back. 5. A Gambit Leading To A Amazing Checkmate!: So, so we've got another amazing game, okay? As by these two great players. And I can't really explain it. You just got to see it, right? It's all be, of course. It was back in the 1800s, Right? But you just have to see it for yourself, for you to understand what happened in this game. So let, let's just get into it. It's going into our right quick. We got the chest analysis. One of the greatest games is all time Adolf Anderson against Bill G, just flat, which is blank, but it is against Jane though, is not Billie Jean Disney or however you say his last name. Let's get into it. Let's see what open and we got y4, y5, dislike row, row chess players. They, they play that all the time night. C6, Bishop see for bishops, C5. And then we got this old Gucci go piano. But then it gets a little bit spicy right there. There's nothing. There's nothing better than doing something like this. Because it's just so great. It just leaves the tension in the air, especially back in those old times, because they didn't even know anything about these gammas and maybe they did, but they didn't have to notice that we have now about this. And if you don't know what a gib it is again, but it's when you sacrifice one pond or two ponds for an initiative or activity, you're sacrificing material for something, right? And in this opening, guess what happened? Before? Now we are in Italian game Evans gigabit Bishop takes before C3 Bishop A5, D4, counter attack in the center. What to do next? What to do after E takes d4 because this portion right here is spin. You can't take back, or you'll be putting your king in Czech castle king. So who cares about that font? I'm not recapturing nothing. The three black is like pleading with Adolf, like, please take the pond back. Just displays. Do not warm me, Don't, don't do nothing. Just take the bond back so that we can have a regular chess game. And then why does like, Nah, yes, exactly. Well, White said that's exactly what he said. And so Queen F6, protecting the F7 pond because white was threatening this F7 square to check the king, E5, queen G6, and coin G6 is something else. You know what I mean? Where, where it started to tap the king. It seems like I don't know. It seems pretty sketchy. It is completely equal though right now. Rookie, one night, G7, Bishop, A3, B5, queen, B5. B5 was played for some reason. I don't know why, but d4 was definitely a better move. B5, E5, rep Ba, and to get there, okay, get the rook in there. But at the same time, queen a four gets the cleaning out of the way. Bishop be six. Attack in this pond. Wrong diagonal but attacking us f2 prime might be d2. All of white pieces are developed. They have a lot of time. Okay, blacks King is still not canceled for some reason. Why it has a lot more time, a lot more space, low material, but they have a lot more quality, high-quality pieces to look at these beautiful Bishops. This coin is doing nothing yet, but it's going to be doing something. These nice can hop around. There's Nike and go here. This book is the only piece of garbage right now, but black has a lot of garbage pieces That's non-dual aren't really anything. Let's see what happens. There should be seven. It is definitely harder to play for black than it is for white. Knight e4. What did I just say? 94, queen of five. Major mistake. Why not just do a simple move? Like the computer same D2, right? Can't black even castle the black head even castle right here, because they would just take this pond. So D2 was the right move. Black's position is really r to play. Queen, the queen F5, bishop, the three Bishop takes deeper. I mean queen H5, night F6, check. They missed the move, not going to lie. Night G3 would have definitely sent black to the shadow around a lot quickly. Okay? Because this position right here is hopeless. Hopeless. Blacks pieces aren't doing anything. Okay? But we're in this position right now. We're not going to lie. Rich GA, Rick AD1, queen takes F3. Big mistake. Rook takes E, seven. What happens after rook takes E7? Night take Z7. The grandmaster took the night back, were threatening checkmate. So all black needs is one move. One move to get checkmate. What is whites next move? What is it? Can you find it? Remember what I said? When you have all of your pieces attacking your opponent and all of your pieces, our own, they're perfect. Squares. Have a purpose in life, have occupation, a job to go to, then everything just goes perfectly fine. If you look for your forcing moves, your checks, captures, and threats, you might find something. You're going to have the opportunity that nobody else have because you have more activity. And guess what? Knows a big tell. If you have something, if your opponents king is out and open it and isn't canceled, Is it protect it. And guess what? If you're upon his king is in the center. Then we should begin in our pieces out to have a successful attack would need four to five pieces, at least to have a successful attack. And I know you might be thinking, well, I can have two or three pieces. No, as the appointed gets stronger, you need four to five pieces. What's the move? The move is queen, takes D7, sacrifice, UK, just go away, or this is checkmate. So don't just do that. King has to take on D7, Bishop F5, check King E, Bishop D7, check King FH, checkmated one move. Bishop takes E7 checkmate. And this is why is the game of the century. Now this was a real battle between good players. In this checkmate that we're seeing right now is why it is part of the game of the century. White was really only a scorpion who really was like Get over here. And if he didn't get over here, then it just inevitably happened because of the activity, that white hat activity is mostly about chess. And if you don't have activity that you really don't have anything because chess is all about teamwork and coordination. In if you're fighting with your whole army, the chances are you're going to win. And if your opponents fighting with their whole army, then chances are, it's going to be a really good battle. So, are you inspired yet? Are these games really good? Good. I give you like the inspiration to play your heart out on the next game that you play? Well, hopefully it does because it makes me want to play a game on leeches or Our head hit, honestly. 6. Checkmate Patterns Everywhere!: Okay, so we got again, it is still fairly risky versus viruses. Frank james Marshall. Now Marshall was that type of person who loved the tech. And we're going to see the attack in that, pretty much the combination that he got that made it into the greatest games of all time collection. Because you will have to know about this. Confuse again to understand the magnificence of what Frank Marshall did to the fan. Let's continue on. Let's see, let's, let's just go on to this, this magnificent game. All right. This guy was something else. And yes, we're on the black side and get an amazing attack off the black side is really hard, right? It's really art is something that is unheard of to do. But black bid it. And he definitely didn't get he got that. He got that when let's see how we got it. Let's see how we got it. All right. So first of all, we we got this moved. Oh, snap, we got a default. Default 36, okay. Okay. Okay, we got, we've got some games now, we've got we've got some room now. Okay, we went into a French defense pulsar variation. Okay, It's a ceiling in defense Marshall Gabby, and I'll snap. So Marshall did the Marshall gamma, he did his own opening, right? And so we've got E takes D5, D5. And now we're in as Marshall gambit night, F6, King sandcastle Bishop be seven, Bishop G5, King side castle. D takes C5, Bishop E6, night before. And we got this confusing position. Let's just go back and move right way. Let's evaluate the position because it's pretty difficult. We got this isolated d pi and isolated deep on when it has no support on the adjacent files of the depot of the pond. So the pond can never support this deep on. And that's what makes it an isolated deep on, right? But everybody's developed the pieces. Both people castle. What happened in this game for me to say that white had a terrible position? Well, let's continue. 1904. This should take C5, night takes E6, f takes E6. Bishop G4, coined the six normal moves, Bishop H3, and get it out of the attack of that square because that night is it being pinned anymore by the queen? And that is a pin to, because if you move the night, then you definitely get more valuable queen, then the bishop, bishop G, G4. Okay? Rick a, developing all pieces. Coin D2. Bishop before take, take. Okay, getting that piece in the game is pretty born. I know, I now know, I know. But these are good techniques to use in your own games and develop your pieces. But it kinda seems like black is having a little advantage, especially in this center to black has that advantage in the center. The night is pin. The night is getting ready to move to one of these squares. Their work is attack and this f palm, we can double up, we can push these ponds. Something is happening. Queen C5, query to Bishop, take C3, C3, C3. Rook takes the five. Night before night, D4 attack and the coin. This is when everything goes wrong. What happens here? Can we go back? Can we go here? We go here. Can't we just go here? No, no, no, you cannot go here. Because of this move. That move is deadly. G takes, g takes F3, G6. Chip. Bishop blocks. Queen, F3, take, came, catch your back because that Bishop is pin and that is bad. The only correct move in this position. And if you want to guess them, pause them, pause the position. If you wanna guess whites only good move. But whites only good move was Queen E, four. Only good move. But why did Queen H Phi bad, really bad. What's going to happen here? What is blacks? Next few good moves. Rookie FFA, slowly hidden that F2 pond. Because this queen was attacking that they'd worked. And now we're attacking this rook. So what is y going to do about this? Rock? Be five. Next best move, rook h six. And you might be thinking like, what, what are you doing? What's going on here? Like, why is this the best game in the world? Like I can see some taxes are about the happy. But what, what's going on Exactly? Queen G5, rook takes h 3. Then the tactics begin. If we just take here, then this royal fork is nasty, really nasty. So you cannot take back. This is not something that you can take back. You have to do some move like Queen G4, something ugly, but you already lose it. Rook C5. Now, when you see this next move, you might be thinking like, Ma'am, why? You might be thinking like, why did you show me this game, right? You might be thinking like, gosh Lee, H1, I could've lived without seeing this game. I have not seen anything this disgusting. And it's kinda like scene. It's kinda like seize somebody glass being like taken out of their bodies and that's what it's kinda like. It's nasty is discussed in and it's gross. And they're seeing somebody on a platter like this before. And so let's just get on with the game right quick. The, you know, the best move is. Do you know what the best move is? Pause the position and figure out what the best move is. Hopefully you paused it because you're going to see something discussed in and three-to-one. Queen, G. Three. Let's go over everything right? Quake2, let's say we take what this pond, 92, checkmate. Let's say we take what this queen, 90 to one night takes g, three. If we go back, E2. And then Rick S3, now we're just we're just up at night. And that's just toggling. The sad part is we can't really take this back because of this work. This, there's some more variations. Don't know. There's, there's more. We can you take this right? What's the best move? Pause. Maybe to checkmate. This is everything. Because now we're threatening if they just do nothing, Let's say they do this. 90 to Kenya form. Check me. And let's just say nothing, right? Checkmate. Everything was wrong with this one move. And I can just survive this position after seeing something like that. Could you would you be okay after seeing is something like this? I've still not. Okay. So amazing. Even see you that on the board. Do you understand what I'm saying? Like come on. 7. Conclusion: So we saw some really bad games. We saw something that we can never unsee for the rest of our lives. And if these games don't aspire you then nothing will, honestly, because if you notice and you just go back to some of these games, somebody's masterpieces because you can re-watch them, right? You don't IQ and pause it as starting points. You can study them. Just go along with H1 because there's so many things that I couldn't put in. I'm probably going to have to put the full analysis on my on something else. But anyway, it will special. I'm glad I got to teach you these things. I got to show you these games so that you can play better, so that you can keep these principles in your head. Some of the main things that made these masterpieces possible was kings not being a castle, development, not taken seriously, space not taken seriously. The quality of the pieces, knowing that each one of your pieces are trashing, aren't doing a specific thing at all in this still in the first or eighth rank of the board, even know 17 moves have passed and just, you have a more material because of tactics and you look in after all, you're forced to move in. These people were the greatest minds and we have the cherish them as such. And without these grandmasters, without these chess players in the past that played these beautiful games. We want to have the chess players that we have today, such as Magnus Carlsen and on NADH and Garry Kasparov, which he had one of the greatest games to that we have to go over two. So I'm going to have to do a part two. What are some modern games that could be the greatest of all time? I don't know. I'm going to have the search for you because I want to do some more. There's a lot more games that brings a lot of flavor into chess. And I want to be your guide for that. So if you like this, give it a good review. There's a project that you can do right? Right on the other side or whatever wherever direction it is. And I really appreciate you hanging out with me. And thank you for running that back with another episode with this chest knowledge, chess wisdom, chess understanding. Hey, this is this is my first time on Skillshare. And thank you. Thank you for being here and invited me here to do this piece.
