  1. The problem with this endgame is that, it is very hard to achieve the winning position here. I can win starting from that "winning" position, but I don't know how to force my opponent into reaching it.

  2. Thanks alot sir , just had this endgame yesterday and somehow I won but I wanted to know this endgame and this vid came at the perfect time , thanks alot.

  3. on 7:45 Is'nt Rc3 the correct move because for Kd3 Rd2 you can go KC3 and Kb3??? @Chessbase India
