    This is dumb. Black queen can just capture bishop on A8. If white queen recaptures black queen on A8, black just pushes pawn on G7 to G6 and black wins. If white moves queen to G6, putting black in check, it is a draw because now the material is equal and the 8th rank is secured by the black queen

    2:29, i think that queen to c8 played because, if pawn black pawn e4, he attacks night and bishob at the same time. So the only way to prevent it would be bishop takes bishop and attack queen so he would not lose a piece like that. So oleg want to prevent that

    Another reason why the 25. exf7 idea doesn't work is because after 25 ... Kxf7 26. Qc4+ Nd5 27. Qxd4, 27 ... Nc3! blocks White's Q+B battery aiming at g7 and gives all of the initiative to Black. White's king is also a bit vulnerable to the Black Queen while it's on g2.

    Video's title is a reference from "The Queen's Gambit": _Chess isn't always competitive. Chess can also be beautiful. It was the board I noticed first. It's an entire world of just 64 squares. I feel safe in it. I can control it. I can dominate it. And it's predictable, so if I get hurt, I only have myself to blame._ (Beth Harmon)

    I never read comments, but I was wondering why you always reach under the desk and say "sorry about that". What the hell are you sorry for. You have been doing it for years, and I have never been able to figure out why. At one point I thought it had something to do with the dog, but I have often seen him in the background when you do it.
