     At 7:26, why can't white play f5 after f3? You know, after the queens 

    exchange black can do rd7, f3 and then f5.

    Im sorry if that question is idiotic 

    (considering the idiot i am) but  i cant see anything wrong with f5.

    Great selection of endgame to depict the point - How super strong GMs evaluate positions differently and how to learn from it?

    Great video. Thanks !

    Great video Shanky, yeah at 20:55 I'm certain Sam knows the winning line and just said the wrong thing. You can't expect humans to be absolutely flawless : ) What Sam meant was (and I had to check this with an engine) instead of h4-h5, d5-d6 straight away, or, after Ke3, e4, then Kf2 and the king stops all 3 pawns and the black king can't stop the two white pawns.

    Again, that's not my analysis but the engine's. Look forward to more videos shanky : )

    Your assessment of the pawn endgame around 20:55 is wrong, black simply wins by playing e4.

    GM Shankland,

    Thanks for an incredible roadmap toward understanding chess at the highest levels.....one needs to know your opponent's plan(s); when/how to exchange; whether any and all resulting pawn endgames are won/drawn/or lost; and whether you're willing to work that hard!  Fantastically valuable video.

    I'm a super fan of Carlsen, so whatever material you guys do on him is great. Keep up analysing Carlsen games :D

    Very nicely done.  It's a technical endgame which I frankly had no interest in initially, but you explained the ideas very well and made it a good teaching exercise.
