  1. Yo! This is Ryan! (the guy who sent the positions)Nelson, I really want to thank you for showing off the position. It means a lot, as I feel like these endgame studies are too good to be this unknown (and I also get a mention in a somewhat popular channel but let's not talk about that).So yeah, thanks for coming to my TED talk.

  2. This is probably my favorite study, with exception of Mitrofanov's Deflection. I've seen it before.


    I've mainly seen it as an Allumwandlung with a queen promotion.

  3. Those underpromotions are just nasty, amazing study!

  4. I figured the this was a drawn position. I didn't expect all those underpromotions, especially the bishop one. All those stalemate traps… 🤣🤣

  5. This is my new favorite endgame study! Solid explanation with a good study always makes for an excellent video.

  6. Guessing it’s a win for white since it is white to play, some kind of promotion to knight maybe

  7. Yw Nelson how’d you know my real name was Ryan? Rly enjoy the videos

  8. I thought black would win. Well, it was much easier for black.

  9. I like draw puzzles. It's an essential chess skill but it gets overlooked

  10. Comment contains a spoiler

    I found the promotion to a bishop move 😀

  11. Wow this was just the most interesting draw i've ever seen 💀

  12. I completely failed at this one. I wonder what is the most amazing chess endgame "study" that was actually played in a game?
