Troitsky’s Masterpiece! Checkmate With 2 Knights Or Doing The “Impossible”

Troitsky’s Masterpiece! Checkmate With 2 Knights Or Doing The “Impossible”


Dear chess lovers, I’m in the mountains again and as usual I have taken my chess set and camera with me in order to film a
video. In this video I would like to share with your fantastic chess puzzle
composed by legendary chess composer Alexey Troitsky. The 2D board please,
there it is, and now you can see the position. It’s white to move and win the
game you can pause the video and try to find that solution. Ready? Well as you can
see both sides have two knights and white has only a single pawn but this single pawn
is going to be White’s trump card with the help of which white is going to
win the game. First white is announcing a check by pushing forward his d pawn.
Now if Kb7 then after de7 there is no way to stop white pawn and
white is winning. That’s why black is playing Kb7 after which then white knight from a4 square is joining the attack Nc5+ King goes back on e8 and in here white is making a powerful move and is sacrificing his pawn d7 check I know this may seem strange
because white is giving away his last pawn but it turns out that this is the
only way to finish up black King Nd7 is forced after which
white is playing Nd6+ and believe it or not but Kd8
white is managing to announce a checkmate by playing Ne6! This is a
fantastic position and can be rarely seen on a chess board, many of you may
say that this is a fantastic position it can never occur in real chess games but
as for me I have seen such a position in a real game and in one of my next videos I will share that game with you. When it comes to this insane chess puzzle I hope
that you enjoyed greatly and I will see you in the next video. Thanks for
watching consider subscribing to my channel, see you soon. Good Luck!

  1. Mr Suren…. Be carefull with the weather… I'm affraid you gonna getting cold … Hahahahaha… Be safety bro. From Indonesia 😀😀

  2. Take care of your health first mr. Suren. The weather seems to be inclement.
    Your videos are mesmerizing. Keep on making more videos.
    I just share your videos with my associates and all of them are fond of your work.

    Lots of love from the Himalayan Country
    – Nepal 😊😊

  3. Suren I made a chess puzzle and would like to see what you think about it.
    Its a draw.

  4. The weather is terrible today. Wind, snow, rain… Time to take a walk to the mountains and analyze a chessgame there! Hahaha you're crazy but I love it! Keep up the good work mister Suren!

  5. Oooooooo😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘 I wish I were with you…my friend

  6. We've been waiting for almost a year for one of your scenic field trips! Really this must become a more regular feature. The puzzle was very good too.

  7. I have a few suggestions for you:
    -Create a rapid or blitz chess simul on lichess.org and play with us (write the day and time on your Facebook page)
    -Play normal rapid/blitz on lichess.org
    -Record more videos like this 🙂

  8. A fantastic game by Suren!

    Yes, as he mentioned, this checkmating style has been seen in other games and it is great to realize that. With the “enemy king” on the back rank and his two knights in front of him, placing your two knights in front as well will result in a “brutal checkmate!”

    Looking forward to his next video where he follows up this checkmate and further teaches his “chess lover” subscribers and viewers.

  9. Hi Suren. Thanks for doing another Chess in the Wilderness video.

    Maybe one day you could walk around the wilderness and do a Q&A about your chess life and how you got into the game. It looks very peaceful with the snow

  10. See Clemenz vs Eisenschmidt 1865 game. Similar situation was arrived on that board. Thanks! 💎💎💎 Courtesy – Chess On.

  11. Natural initial position with wonderful mate. Nowadays the study composer with help of computer can find also an introduction where all pieces moves (also white king and black knight).
    I love also the nature and I´m very often in the mountain…Great video!

  12. Suren hi! We love your outstanding chess videos very much, also puzzles. Troitsky and Plaksin are real brainmonsters in chess puzzles, especially retrograde analysis. Could you please make a video covering a couple of retro-puzzles please?

  13. Never liked chess more since i found this channel 2 years ago…my current rating on lichess is 2088..and it all thanks to suren..

  14. I would have been stuck on that puzzle forever after making White’s 3d move; I would never in a million years have thought to sacrifice the Pawn.

  15. My God, what a video, I thought ,the chessboard serial killer and I felt the winter then the brilliant 4 knights mate , stunning.
