  16. I'm sorry, but some of these seem really stupid. Like don't do this because blank could happen in this very specific scenario or set up. Some of these are weird never or always rules for sometimes situations.

  17. Thank you so much for explaining in ways begginers can understand. Knight on F8. I love it. πŸ™‚

  18. Officer pulls me over because he suspect DUI

    OFFICER: Get out of the car and walk on the white line, mister!

    I take the crooked path, but make it to the end

    OFFICER: Dammit! I can't believe I didn't see those moves. Here's your license and drive safely, sir!

  19. The crooked path thing is actually something I havent given much thought, thanks!

  20. 12:35 I figured out that the opponent may move the King forward to e7 here, in order to avoid the pawn move to g6, which opens the diagonal for attacking the Rook later. And, I figured out how to initiate a checkmate if the opponent ruins my plan of defeating the h8-Rook this way. Here it comes:

    Check how the board looks like in the time stamp of 12:35. You are playing White. Knight takes pawn on e5 as explained, pawn on f6 takes Knight on e5. My Queen comes out on h5, and the opponent moves the King forward on e7. Queen takes pawn on e5, another Check. King can only move to the right on f7. My white-square Bishop comes out on c4, attacking the King on f7. Now the King can only escape on g6. My Knight on f3 now moves to h4, attacking the King on g6, which can only escape to h6 now, his last safe square to move to. Finally, I move out the pawn that enables my black-square Bishop to have a free diagonal to the h6 square, where the opponent's King rests. My two Bishops, my Knight and the Queen, locked the King completely, and he is checkmated.

    I hope that I did not overlook anything. I will ponder this on a virtual chess board, and if I made no mistakes, and it actually works this way, I will create a flash-card for Anki, and store this combo in my learning app. And yes, the opponent still can attack my Knight on h4 with his Queen, to ruin my plan, but maybe I can develop this further. Maybe pawn on g3 first, before moving the Knight on h4, so the opponent can neutralize the Check by taking my knight with the Queen, but losing his Queen right after this. πŸ˜€ No checkmate, but a Queen is better than killing a Rook.

    I forgot that the Knight on my right side of the board was already sacrificed, and thus cannot check the King anymore. But I am working on this problem, to see how I can harm my opponent the most in this scenario. You all can help me. At least, either ruining the castling of thr opponent's king, or destroying one of his Rooks, is already a huge benefit for White here.

    I eventually found a way how to checkmate my opponent in that scenario. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ But I will not share it here. It is too powerful.

  21. Concept #7 I got the point, but 3 Bc4 should be also strong enough to punish 2 f6
