Instructive :) Thank you, GM Bojkov! :)
Very informative. I Will watch again and again.
Thank you for the informative video. I would love to watch other videos about the use of the rooks.
I learned a lot about rook endgames and piece activity from this video! Thanks so much!!
Awsome video thnx, love the way he says king
i love your videos comment back so i know your listening
I would like personally to thank you all for the positive feedback!
Dejan vs Anand?
Another fine video which will be a good reference to study more...
I just wanted to say that I have personally learned a lot from this entire series. Thank you, Dejan.
all your videos have excellent explanations, very easy to listen to and understand, great stuff :)
just like all your lectures are - awesome!
Interesting and instructive as always. Great video series. I liked the clear examples of piece activity trumping material and pawn structure considerations in these endgames.
Thank you for another highly instructive video on endgames! Although I rarely find myself having the exact pawn structures you cover, most of the themes you discuss (e.g. activity of the pieces) naturally apply to other endgame positions, so these lectures have been very useful for knowing what positional ideas to consider while playing the endgame.
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Today the "Towers of Power" have their say in the video series that has become the most in-depth look at the Spanish Endgame Pawn Structures on the internet! GM Dejan Bojkov enlightens further, stressing that the activity of the Rooks along the open files is much more important than the pawns themselves. Learn from more top Grandmaster games today, and enjoy these instructive examples of technique.
