  1. Rook on a5 looks super awkward. (last example)

  2. I lost 50 elo points so i need to work on my endgames again

  3. Chess base must use hindi or nepali language, please.

  4. i had to watch like 10 ads to finish half of this video

  5. Change the title to rook vs rook + pawn ending please

  6. After watching this video alone made me go from 700 to 800 , And i actually played all the best moves in the rook and pawn endgame i got , (except one mistake move)

  7. Me watching this video after losing rook and 3 pawn engame: (

  8. Why isn't the technique in the first example explained?

  9. 8:15 Why would black rook move to e2 to give check? It can just stay on F file and keep threatening the pawn and king can't zig zag anywhere. I don't get it.

  10. As someone who is always lost in the woods in battlfield…. That's fair.

  11. Endgame noob ( me before subscribing)Gotham subscriber ( also me , now )

  15. Very good tutorial with a clear explanation👍

  16. 12:10 bro, i can't even do checkmate without at least 2 rooks when i was 8 years old

  17. Well explained! This is highly instructive because rook & pawn endgames are probably one of the most common endgames there are. Now – if I can just remember this stuff.

  18. i just first time got in rook and pawn endgame😂 (1200elo rapid) . of course don't know endgame. result is horrible

    me: great move! (4)blunder (7) missed win (2) accuracy 66%
    opponent: great move! (5) blunder (9) missed win (2) accuracy 64%

    barely had win💪

  19. i suck at these games. Will try and implement some of this

  20. 05:50—my bro why haven't you check with white rook at h8 bcoz by this you can grab his rook

  21. Keep up the endgame lessons.

    Show something like rook vs 2 pawns or 3 pawns.

  22. i always end up in a winning endgame with the both of us having a rook and the same amount of pawns and i always throw :///

  23. I'm too fast too furious to watch your videos

  24. I've reached a point where I just sit and wait for hours for your daily uploads

  25. Watching Gotham with my morning coffee is the best

  26. So Useless! You speak way too much. Go Back To Twitch!!
