    I solved the first one!

    Thanks for the entertaining video. You're a legend. I don't have a premium membership so I couldn't finish watching it [:-(], so could somebody show me the answer to the second problem? Thanks.

    I haven't seen all of the video because I'm not a diamond member, but I have seen the second problem before. Give Houdini enough time and it will eventually figure it out.

    But the problem illustrates that you must recognise your key principles in end games, rather than concentrating on the race to see who queens first.

    In end games of all varieties, passed pawns must *ALWAYS* be blockaded with the king, because it is the only piece that can prevent (or at least stunt to the fullest possibility) the progress of the pawn, because an enemy king alone is unable to break such a blockade.

    The royal pieces (aka king and queen) are the only pieces that controls all the squares directly around them, and I love how this example demonstrates that blockading the pawn with the queen against the rook is not enough to win, because by eliminating all the potential activity of the queen removes all of white's counterplay.

    Having viewed it a second time, there was still much to learn.  By the way, I put the second position on Deep Fritz 13, and the best it could come up with after 5 minutes was a7 a2, Re8+ Kxe8, a8(Q) Ke7, Qa7+ Kf8, Qc5+ Kg7, etc.--just a draw.  Danny demonstrated a much more instructive winning line.  Computers don't have all the answers yet!

    Your loss was kinda sad, it was a logical solution, nothing too fancy there, the other ones were very difficult though, couldn't see them at all.
