I didn't see them until you explained them. After you showed the moves, I smacked my forehead with my palm and wondered how I missed them. :oops: I think they're tricky because the moves aren't intuitive.

In the second position in the video you gave the move Qb5 with the idea that if white takes the queen, black has a back rank mate. That does not lead to a back rank mate after qxb5 rd1+ because the queen just goes back and blocks on f1.

I think you should watch the video again. Or just set up the board and look over the position.

No...I'm 100% sure I'm right that if white takes the queen on b5 that it's not back rank mate due to the queen being able to block it on f1. Not that it matters but I'm just saying. Pause the video on 8:00 and you'll see what I mean.

FMF is correct on this one: Qxb5 Rd1 Qf1 Rxf1+ Kxf1.

I never gave Qb5 as a viable move. I gave it as an example: How do we move the white queen off her square at e2? I never give it as a move that will lead to anything good. I merley said that this is the question to answer that will lead to a great tactical idea, now come up with the real solution!! So again watch the video one more time. Qb5 was giving just to show beginners a possible way to draw the queen off her perch, but not the correct move in the position.

Even though Qb5 is a bad move, it can still illustrate a tactical idea.

So you both are wrong, or Triple D didn't watch the video and just forwarded to Min. 8

To keep Fritz from moving, turn on Infinite Analysis (in the menu: Engine->Infinite Analysis)

Yeah, I admit I've seen that position before, so I quickly skimmed through it. Sorry for my mistake.
