IM Daniel Rensch is back this weekend to bring you a video on the crucial, though not always practical, Knight and Bishop Checkmate! Take notes on the way the Knight and Bishop coordinate, with the Knight protecting the opposite colored squared of the Bishop. The King saves the day! Memorize the pattern, rinse and repeat!

Great video! People stop whining
you sound rude
My goodness. Did he wake up on the wrong side of the bed before recording this. What an arrogance!
Hey don’t let your arrogance get the best of you! Your rude!
You know I got an end game the other day with knight and bishop and I sat there and sat there wondering if it was possible to check mate the king, I ended up deciding it was impossible and settled for s draw I won't do that next time
Checkmate by this is easier. Thanks for your video

GMs: I messed this up
Trust me, take your time learning this one. Don't be fazed. It's not so easy, but it will probably help your piece coordination considerably even if it doesn't come along so often!
Damn! Danny is such a good teacher!
Came here because Nakamura recommended it, wasn't disappointed.
When those pieces are standing randomly on the board this is the most frustrating checkmate to do as a beginner…. god… even this triangle pattern sometimes screws everything over …… Is there not a more consisting pattern/rule to go for ? god….
I use tge three triangles checkmate method it is more complicated but easer to memorize
the position at 1:00 is actually mating in 5, 1.Ne6 Kh7 2.Kf7 Kh8 3.Bf4 waiting, 3… Kh7 4. Nf8+ Kh8 5. Be5# or if 1. Ne5 Kh8, then 2. Kf7 Kh7 3. Nf8+ Kh8 4. Bf6#)
Why checkmate 3 at the start nh5 and ne8 is checkmate in 2
So is the checkmate with B+N still possible on a 10×10 board? How about a 12×12 board, or any nxn board where n is an even number? The complication on higher boards is keeping the opposing king from pulling off an end run to the opposite wrong corner, a plan that can be stopped on an 8×8 board by setting up a wall.
thank you a lot sir
Thanks man!! Thanks so much. I was trying to learn this through LiChess and just spending a lot of time with Fritz 17 and making some progress.
1. Kingh, 2. King…. Bishop…until I get the King pinned in the opposite corner, then I just swoop in with my knight n Bishop!
I bet you play a mean game!
Thank you again!
I like to put two r's in my name like Garry?! ;p()
I like how this video doesn’t work out when I try it and need to obtain this position in the first place.
What an absolute chad
Knight leads the way
King saves the day
Bishop makes them pray
this guy is anoying
im never gonna remember this
My brain would shut down if I had to do the same thing at the bottom left corner
thank you, this way very useful!
This video has been supremely helpful to me in learning to checkmate with the knight and bishop! Thank you so much for putting this out! I always recommend this video to player looking for tips with this checkmate!
I watched 3 or 4 vids on this before finding this one. This is the only one that taught it well enough for me to actually understand the principals.
At 10.00min, when the Black King was at f8, the com played e8… and then I have no idea what to do… please help.
I know how to checkmate from that position but i never know how to force the king into a corner
I've been trying to figure this out, this is the video that made it click
In the beginning of the video I was trying to close a perceived Ad by clicking the black kings crown!
How to checkmate with knight and bishop without any king oh wait your already mated
Is there many of these videos and how do I find them in a teaching order so I can learn from them starting at 1-? from IM Rensch
finally something that actually works
i can premove this checkmate
once the king is on the back row, it's pretty linear
Didn't know tobias plays chess.
The hardest past is to get opponent's king to even the opposite colour corner
7:11 that's the whitest 1-2-3 I've ever heard
Explained so well . Thanks 👍
funny thing is that komodo 12.1.1 "correct" second move not to be the best move and suggest another one
Great video, but how do I get the other king on the edge of the board?
00:20 What an asshole. People, including children, come here to learn chess. Not to be talked down to.
I made it after watching this video just one time.
Came here because Nakamura recommended it, wasn't disappointed
1:00 pov you only see mate in 4
crap tutorial doesnt tell what to play when the black king doesnt always plays the best move
