Got an error at the end so the video basically stops at around 41:40 but goes on without sound for 1-2 minutes. I'm sure you'll survive me not saying "goodbye" there at the end and forgive me for not re-doing a 40+ minute video so that I can say "goodbye" at the end :-)

it was fine. :) good work! Anastasia's mate actually came from a novel written by Heinse called "Anastasia and Chess " from like 1803. not that that is important to know just a piece of history. Supposedly in that book the mate is displayed. kind of interesting. not much was figured out by 1803 lol.

Nice Video Zibbit!

I knew most of these mates through Winning Chess Combinations (Seirawan) and Think Like a Grandmaster, but still a great video.

Hello Zibbit;

This is a wonderful video! I thought the material was well organized and I appreciate that you gave several examples of each of the simple mates. I can hardly wait to try out Boden's (or Anastasia's) mate in a real game. I am sending the URL to a couple of my chess buddies to show them what this site really has to offer.

Keep up the great work!

Cordially,

William Nulf

You're the older guy in that picture, right? You sound WAY younger. That's pretty cool. This was a good video. I really liked the use of looking at how openings can lead to the positions to be recognized. That helps a pattern settle in even better than just seeing examples of disembodied games. Could you do that more for future videos? Maybe not necessarily from the opening, but show stuff leading up to the position.

If anyone wants/needs to know any memory tricks for memorization of this type of thing, PM me. I happen to have studied these things and am pretty good at it, and wouldn't mind making a video on it if people wanted it.

Thank you everybody for your very nice words! I really appreciate the feedback and the nice words. Hearing those nice things and also hearing about my videos helping somebody in chess is what motivates me to keep making those!

Hopefully this will just be a first in a series of videos about pattern recognition. I truly believe learning and accumulating patterns is the best way to improve in chess and I welcome you on such a journey with me!

I had a Chess Tempo problem with a variation of Anastasia's Mate and spotted it immediately, thanks to this video. :)

Thanks Zibbit for all the effort to put this and your other videos, you explain it all very clearly so we weaker guys can understand for ourselves. And the 'pattern recognition' thing is a great idea, I try to incorporate the pattern recognition in my study, so later when playing I will be able to notice them on the board...so thanks very much again and looking forward to more in this series.

hi, nice video.
In "the art of the checkmate" by Georges Renaud and Victor Kahn, your "stefansson's mate" (#3) is called blackburne's mate, but i guess there's no patent on mating names anyway :)

Thanks. Yeah it's difficult to know these names or find them. So just to have something for reference I name them myself if I am not aware of an "offical" name. Usually I name it after an example that I remember myself.

Though it isn't a comprehensive catalog, Vukovic's "Art of Attack in Chess" (1965) is a classic. I imagine that at the FM level most of the material is already familiar. But there is a section on standard mating patterns, and this mate is listed as Blackburne's Mate on p. 79 (sorry - :bom:). While Qx(N)h5 is not rare, the more common situation arises when White plays Qh_ to provoke ...h5, when Black thinks he has prevented Qxh7#. That doesn't work, as you've shown, because White replies Qxh5! anyway, and after ...gxh5, Bh7#.

I was lucky enough to pull off a Boden's mate a year ago to the utter surprise of an opponent rated 200 pts higher than I was. Because I knew the pattern, but he didn't, I was able to prepare it and he never suspected what was coming.

I enjoyed your endgame technique demonstrations. It would be wonderful to have a website with animations of these and the hundreds of others we probably need to learn, but I suppose the training modules of chess playing software could also demonstrate them...

Congratulations on an educational and entertaining video!
