LOL! You're welcome!
Mr. Rensh sir, I just watched and of course listened to my first video of yours.
The Endgame is definitely my weakness for that is where I struggle the most. The video I just watched was the 4th video on Endames. It taught me a few things that I will not forget.
Question: at 2:56 in the video, doesn't Kf5 for black win outright?
Thank you Daniel! It was a nice insight...
Thank you very much for sharing this.
Thanks to all for enjoying this series...
Man, watching this entire "Everything You Need..." series makes we realize how much more I wish I'd covered - BUT 15 minutes was our goal...
Anyway, hope many of you watch the other videos on the site!
great video! thanks.!
I love the energy you have when speaking.
Just excellent. Great videos. They provide a very helpful precis for the novice and (i imagine) a thorough summary for the mid level player too.
Very nice video...
the comment puzzles are nice too.
Mr. Rensch I will watch your videos forever.
very short, infomative and to the point. nice
Great series.Good instructive information.
Two weeks ago, chatting with a friend on Yahoo Messenger, we decided to play chess. Both of us knew almost nothing about the game aside from the names of a few pieces. Simply guessing how the game was played. Afterward, I decided to play the computer on my Windows7 version. Day after day I kept losing, not quite seeing what I was doing wrong. After many "ah ha" moments watching the videos I tried again. And beat the computer three out of seven games. Admittedly, I played on the beginner setting. But that is a start, right?
A great site and thanks so much!

Your journey continues today! IM Rensch leads us into the final stage of chess with a few goals in mind: Understand the power and important role your King plays in the endgame; recognize and execute the power of your passed pawns; understand that in all "roughly equal" endgames, those two factors will often dictate your results. Oh, and push, push, push your passed pawns!
