Instructive. It'd be nice for the subscribers if the analysis was added to the PGN. I believe this is what another popular subscribtion service does.
guess got some points regarding pushing pawns ...when opposite bishops clash xd..Nice to listen to u
Around 6:56-7:00 white could do Rxa7 due to the x-ray, that looks good to me.
Rxa7 should decide yes?
is it me or is this video 3 min and 2 min of non info? I guess I require a subscription for these videos?
Nice video, I've really enjoyed these great endgame studies!
Thank you for taking out time to share that!!
Thanks for the video. Good stuff.
I agree - why can't White play Rxa7 at 6:58? Seems
like a great play.
At time 6:58, why can't white play Rxa7?
I like how White's winning plan follows the process established in the converting extra material video series of first eliminating counter play with b4-a4-a5 to stop Black's b6 and a5, then activating the pieces with rooks to the d file and king to c4, and finally breaking through with Bc2-Ba4-Rd7.
Great video! thanks.
interesting video...thanks Sam.
by GM Sam Shankland
Sam acknowledges breaking a promise with his latest video lecture on the concepts of defense, but we would have all missed out had he not! After claiming to have wrapped up the ideas of defense (both concrete and practical) surrounding Opposite Colored Bishop positions, GM Shankland played a highly instructive game against IM Yankovsky at the California State Championship that simply had to be included in this video series.
Players: Shankland, Sam
vs. Yankovsky, Roman
