    For the pause the video moment (13:10) playing Rb2+ also works, it forces white to capture the rook and after both players promote, the white king has no way of escaping checks and the game is a draw

    I couldn't calculate the king move vs a rook, but the rook sacrifice on b2 seems something you can figure out even under time pressure. White giving a check on b7 first, it seems protected but makes it even easier. While switching checks between f8 and a3, the king must now move between b8 and a7 or lose the queen. Without that extra move the white rook is unprotected and should eventually fall to a fork check, or limit the white kings movement to white squares. But you can't move to the white diagonal squares c6 or d5 or you might even lose the queen.

Be brave, be honest to yourself and stop this trush talkings!!! Everybody know that i am very good blitz player, i can win anyone in the world in single game! And "w"esley "s"o is nobody for me, just a player who are crying every single time when loosing, ( remember what you say about Firouzja ) !!! Stop playing with my name, i deserve to have a good name during whole my chess carrier, I am Officially inviting you to OTB blitz match with the Prize fund! Both of us will invest 5000$ and winner takes it all! I suggest all other people who's intrested in this situation, just take a look at my results in 2016 and 2017 Blitz World championships, and that should be enough... No need to listen for every crying babe, Tigran Petrosyan is always play Fair ! And if someone will continue Officially talk about me like that, we will meet in Court! God bless with true!

    Ove always said that engines will never kill the beauty of games like chess because while half a game happens on the board, the other happens on the head of each player. It's about seeing your opponents reactions, trying to trick him, use mind games or just keep playing until he/she makes a mistake and you find an opening. You can't attack a machine's confidence. And that competition inside the head is what gives chess infinite beauty.

    Its a good idea but there no way to continue the attack. If there would then these GMs would already have. For example after Bxh3 Gxh3 Qxh3 And then white would just play Nh2 and there is nothing left you are down a piece now. White will bring his queen to f3, rooklift is possible to e3 to chase away queen those bishop pair is active and can start defending. But mostly white will bring his queen up for an exchange.

    The position at 14:11 (W Ka8, Rf2 B Kh3, pawn h7) white to move with 1 Rf7 attacking the Pawn, 1.., h5 and then Rg7 how are going to promote the pawn now because the king is trapped on the h-file

    You can ask any GM This sounds.. weird. As other GM found pawn moves and found the correct idea to draw, giving up on his pawn for nothing makes no sense It was theorotical draw, easy one

    13:07 What about Rb2+ ? White would have to take Black's rook, then Black and White get a Queen. Yes, then White would be up a rook, but maybe Black can hold a draw by constantly checking the white King?

    I found R b2 in the last position. This should also be a draw I think. Because even if white gets an extra rook since the rook will be on the a or b file and the queen will be on a8 the king cannot escape checks

  • Bella Alice Swan Cullen

    yes, in another comment it was confirmed a draw. before promoting to a queen white can give a check with its rook on b7, but promoting after this gives perpetual check on f8 and a3 or lose the queen. Giving more checks probably gives the same situation of an unprotected rook that can be forked unless moving between specific white squares (not c6 or d5 or a check on the diagonal could cost a queen).

  • Moiz

    White will win the rook on b2, black promotes on f1 and white checks the king with b7 first and once the king moves, white promotes to Queen. White will be up a rook.

  • Leon

    When he says pause the video can't you play rook to B2 he captures your rook you promote black pass pawn to a queen then white promoted their pass pawn to a queen then you play Black's queen to the 8th rank with check white has to move his king to the 7th rank black can then move his queen to the 7th rank again with check this wins back the rook black would then be up a pawn?
