This video provides the viewer with a quick definition of the term “opposition”. Beyond that, I illustrate how to promote a pawn, and defend against your opponent who is trying to promote their pawn.

Hey Jerry ,today at Chesscube I am 1300 I forced a Stalemate against a 1500 cz of ur amazing video thnx duuuuude 🙂 :D:D:D
This may be irrelevant, but how did you draw those arrows on your video?
I made to 2100 because of your videos thx dude!
I find your pace and detail of explanation very helpful. Thank you so much.
Brilliant thank you
thank you I always had bad endgame now i can make it beteer
been subscribed to your channel for awhile but decided to check out some archival videos. excellent video.
Great video Jerry!
thank you! excellent clear instruction.
It seems at 2:55 if the black king is just one rank closer, it's a drawing position, because you can't really get in front of your pawn in time before he takes opposition. How can you solve that? It really should have been addressed here if that really is a draw then.
Thanks, but very detailed and slow instructions, I think you could do better if you do it faster,
The best explaination this chess idea I have found on YouTube : )
everything is good but you should have stated the rule at the beginning. that if number of squers is 1 3 5 7 etc who ever did the last move has opposition
5:03 what if bk goes h5 how do i advance if he goes for the pn
Should be obvious for you probably but idk
Excellent demonstration thanks
jerry you are amazing !
Your videos are fantastic!
help[ed a lot
Woah Jerry sounds hella different
Jerry your a god damn genius
Thank you, Jerry. Much clearer than Anand's explanation of these concepts in a Youtube video I watched today.
In 9:41 you can also move your king to g6 and if th opponent gets the opposition you can just push your pawn to regain opposition
This is a superb video. Thank you.
Where are you from? I'm getting really drawn in by your accent
This is the best explanation video for king pawn ending I have seen
You know how to teach. Thank you.
at 7:07, why can't white do kG5, then if black king does f8 or g8, white king gets f6. (or if black king does g7, then white king f5, then next move, f6) then advance pawn, and now white is winning.
Amazing .. analysis..Thanks
This type of end game gives me fits. Thanks for introducing me to the concept of opposition.
Clearly explained Endgame
It's Over Anakin! I have the opposition!
Thanks for answering my question I knew it was impossible to escape stalemate in that position, I’ll keep that in mind in future matches
Jerry!! Decided to look up this subject and clicked on this video and it turned out the description was by you and it made me happy, because I like your videos on such "how to" chess concepts or when you followed Magnus in a blitz tournament and commented.
Thank you so much sir. Your work is really appreciated. Gratefully your follower.
watch at 1.5x
I have just mated stockfish10 using this method and I'm gonna do that 50 times in a row so that the motherfucker knows who's boss. Man vs Computer (50:0) haha
50 years old, and now I learn this? All the (extra) games I could have won! This is huge! Thanks man!
Can you make a video how to make checkmate in a regular position
yeah. Luckily White has that extra pawn move.
But what about if he didn't. How do you calculate the position then?
These are much more complex positions than advertised in video. If Black can maintain 1, 3 or 5 rank distance from White king and White got no extra move, the latter cannot achieve anything.
A better technique is laid out by Dvoretsky's endgame book.
I've been going through Capablanca's book and I couldn't figure out the logic behind concept. Thanks for the video.
thats an excellent explanation
