# Analyzing Crazy Chess Puzzle While Riding My Longboard

Hello chess lovers. While riding my longboard I decided to show you a very short puzzle composed by a French chess composer Henri Rink. The 2D board please, there it is. White to move and win the game, you can
pause the video and try to find the solution. Ready? Well, though white has only a rook and a bishop against the queen but
because of the fact that black pieces are misplaced white is managing to win
the game. First white is playing 1. Ra8, offering a whole rook. Black can’t accept the sacrifice because
of 2. Bf3+ and white will win the queen. Black plays 1… Qa2, it turns out that this is the safest square on a2-g8 diagonal and here comes 2. Ra4, white rook is simply chasing black queen. The queen retreats back to g8 square and now comes again 3. Ra8 Qh7, and 4.Bg6. Black is just forced to accept the sacrifice
and captures on g6 and here comes 5. Ra6+ and white is winning the queen. Just a fantastic chess puzzle by Henri Rink. Your comments and questions please. I hope that you enjoyed this crazy video. Good Luck

The donkey pulling him is running pretty fast. Dubious!

Accoring to the speed it might also be a slow roller coaster, the worlds first steam railway engine or a Fiat.

Triggered racists incoming, but i dont care.

7. Raul C says:

Man this was amazing, I cant stop laughing but you're so fucking amazing, thanks for the chess puzzle and the inovation on the explanation! haha

8. Cedric Wong says:

Every time Suren says "hello chess lovers" internally I think "YES! YOU'RE RIGHT! I DO LOVE CHESS!"

9. If? says:

I'm curious, what was actually pulling you during this video?

10. Lyrics Synthesis ツ says:

That was so unique that i loved you even more with this video!
By the way, i was distracted ; didn't even think the puzzle, i was blinded by your awesomeness there

11. Esrarkeş Menderes says:

Next video suggestion: bungee jumping with checkers puzzle

12. shlomi says:

Suren is the best!

13. Kenitra City says:

Really a crazy video, thank you

14. Joe Dorben says:

To be fair it's a pretty easy puzzle but still impressive you did it while riding a longboard, although probably the best continuation for black is to play Qh7 first to avoid loss of the a4 pawn and then after Bg6 to play Kb7, getting a rook for the queen at least instead of a bishop. Maybe even just Qxa8 in the starting position is best, if you put the king on b4 and start to push the a-pawn, maybe you can hope for a draw even though it seems very unlikely.

15. Derek Liu says:

according to the analyzer, first move for black is take the rook

20. Games Xotics says:

Whats your rating in chess Suren???

21. PN Houle says:

One should never attempt to solve chess puzzles without a helmet.

22. Joemari Castro says:

thanks for letting me know your identity. I've been seeing your videos for quite some time. keep it up man. I've become a better chess player because of your vids.

23. Iwer Sonsch says:

1.Ra8, attacking the queen. If Qxa8, Bf3+ a skewer.
1…Qh7 is being answered with 2.Bg6 Qxg6 3.Ra6+ and Rxg6. Other queen moves except for Qa2 also lose to skewers.
1…Qa2 2.Rxa4 Qg8 3.Ra8 forces the previous line.

24. Jeric Teves says:

Suren announces to analyze another puzzle while sky diving. jk

33. Ryan Kim says:

I NEVER CLICKED THE LIKE BUTTON SO FAST

34. yogibear6363 says:

Offhand I do not think the line given is black's longest defense.
Losing the pawn on a4 and leaving white with a rook is quickly lost for black.
The game might go on longer if white has only the bishop and black still has the a4 pawn.
Taking the rook straightaway will force white to play more moves before winning.

Similar to the Savedra position.
The given solution ends the game quickly,
but black can escape into a (still lost) queen vs rook
ending that will take white more moves to win.

Very nice study of misplaced pieces.

35. Ali Mustafa says:

Longboard chess tournament .

36. Anton Podkopaev says:

At first, I misread the title as 'Easy Chess Puzzle' because it's almost impossible to solve a tough puzzle while keeping the balance on a longboard… Well, the puzzle was easy enough indeed, or maybe I was very lucky to find the 1st move fast. I couldn't think of any other candidate move that would have the potential to change the position dramatically, though.

37. Lucas Campero says:

38. Pranjal Naik says:

Awesome Video !:)
Just a mistake "black plays rook A2" . QueenA2

64. Shilpi Kohli says:

Suren, this is my new favorite youtube video!

83. kurzackd says:

hehe Suren sure knows how to play the "game" lol

84. modolief says:

Vladimir Kramnik likes to swim as a means of staying fit. So he will memorize the starting position of the endgame study, then solve it in his head while he's swimming.

85. OK THIS IS EPIC #VictoryRoyale says:

That was a dubious audio quality! A better move would be buying a microphone

86. Ebil Joseph says:

why doesn't the queen capture the rook on a4

87. DucassiiiN - says:

Wow that took me a while btw in the end the best move for black was to accept the rook sacrifice (Ra8, Qxa8, Bf3+, Kc5, Bxa8) so in that way black keeps a4 pawn and white will have a bishop instead of an annoying rook

88. Grzegorz Cichosz says:

Your voice sounds much better like that.

What country do you come from? What country does your family originate from?

89. Flerikko says:

Did you have dogs to pull you while you ride your longboard?

91. Patrick Mulcahey says:

When the video recording was finished, he told the driver of the car "Let’s go back."

92. Jon says:

I'll give you a like for your creativity.

93. Thinh Le says:

Thank you, you are amazing!

94. Legendary People Of Pakistan says:
