Praggnanandhaa’s depth of endgame knowledge | Rook + pawn vs Bishop

At the Microsense Kramnik Gelfand Training camp, the youngsters play blitz games for fun. However, there is also quite a bit of learning in that fun. Whenever an instructive position is reached, the players analyze it after the game and draw their conclusions from the same. Pragg was playing a blitz game against Gukesh. They reached an endgame that looked pretty simple. Pragg had a rook and a pawn, while Gukesh had only a bishop. Seems like a straightforward win, right? Only that it wasn’t.

After the game ended Pragg analyzed the position in depth and found that it was winning for him in all lines. He now shares this knowledge with chess players all across the world. Learn from the little master!

  3. Praguu is my favourite Indian prodigy…he's so special

  4. Who knows which chess piece set is this? Very beautiful.

  5. If the King was in the right corner, took pawn with pawn in 5th rank is a draw. For eg:, Black King h8,Bh7 and white pawn h5 with a king and rook is a draw with perfect play. If the pawn was on the 4th rank, white is winning
