  1. This was the BEST deathmatch yet. Waiting for more!

  2. Most interesting lecture on King and Pawn endgames in a long time!

    Maybe Chess.com staff would consider asking Jeremy Silman for a series of video lectures based on his Endgame Course. Would love to master the technique of such endgames, because they are truly beautiful, like the final brush of Vincent van Gogh on his masterpieces!

  3. How much was the cash purse for the death match?

  4. Mindblowing…..thank u very much…….plz plz plz upload more and more endgame positions.I love these videos too much and i need these….for my endgame development.You are really a good teacher for me.Again thank u thank u thank u very much………..

  5. 1000 dolars at stake .500 guarented for the winner,the rest to both players for each win ,1 won game was worth sth around 15 dollars

  6. Very clear demonstration of the depth Shankland has in his play. Truly amazing! Love that the positions came down to King and Pawn endgames. My favorite has to be the knight vs bishop in the first game shown. Thank you!

  8. how about a round robin death match between the four GMS?

  9. the matches air live on chessdotcomslashtv, next one is april 28th.

  10. we have a lot more ideas to try out with the death-matches.

  11. Yes but live in the US means bedtime or work in EU.

  12. That was just so great. 17 minutes went by so quick. I was in the zone. Thank you Pruess

  13. Impressive. Not merely Shankland's technique on winning the endgames, but also his insight to attain these endgames in the first place.

  14. There is no chance this was calculated. It was a 5 minute game that could very easily turn the other way round.

  15. my friend, that's why i call it shocking 🙂 GMs, like extremely skilled people in other fields, can do things that just don't seem possible.

  16. just thank you from the heart for this amazing endgames !!
