    For example Kf3 Kd2 Rd6+ Ke1 Rd3 Rf2+ Kxe3 Rxf7 is more complicated than the way Rubinstein played it. Advancing the g-pawn (and h-pawn) first strengthens black's position before taking action, which means less counterplay, less chance of a draw.

    This is a excellent game that teaches rook endings aren't always draws and split pawns can be converted into wins.  thnx  a lot IM dpruess

    yep, i would just say: not merely potential advantage, but actual advantage. as Rubinstein proceeded to expertly demonstrate, those split pawns are a solid advantage that black can use in the endgame.

    Black queen gets to the center of the board, attacking knight, bishop and pawn. White blocks, forcing black to attack pawn on g2, which he doesn't mind because it generates isolated king side pawns. White counters with a double attack on queen and rook. Black accepts the queen trade giving him potential advantage in the end game.

    chill, friend!

    you are totally allowed to be a member, you even are a member already. just make a payment and you'll become a diamond member, and then you can watch the videos. it's not unfair that you have to pay for things of value; if some members didn't pay for the videos, there wouldn't be any videos for anyone to watch; in fact, you wouldn't even have this site to play games on!

    Excellent video!  Lately I've been studying the rook endgame and this video teaches me that I still have a lot to learn. Thanks David, I humbly look forward to your next video for beginners.
