  1. Helpful post…I do believe the c-pawn instead of b pawn would be a draw (at 31:50)as the B King is even closer to Kside after capture of the c pawn.

  2. Oops. “. Forgot to close the quote. Anyway, next time look up the pronunciations before making your video.

  3. 8:17 why does the rook leave the second rank? can the rook just keep the king confined to the edge of the board and continue moving on the second rank. As queening the rook pawn takes two moves blacks rook will always have time to get back and if white decides to abandon the rook pawn for the f pawn blacks rook can take the rook pawn with check and gain tempo on the pawn trade? its like a 50 move no progress draw

  4. Rook endgames that no one understands. That’s not true, so this must be an indictment of me.

  5. I just found out today that I suck at knight and pawn endgames.
