    Promoting f pawn to a knight with check would be funny in your dad's game :)

    I have an idea you might consider sir.  How about a family legacy book?  "The Finegold family chess masterpieces:  A compolation of three generations of U.S. chess mastery " ... I believe along with your brother NM Mark Finegold there was also another master at onetime in the family.  But she will not be named :) .... Have a great day Ben,  Sincerely, EddieB

    Nice video GM Finegold :) ... really nice!! endgame by your father, i was impressed.  Spencers qh8 was a nice shot (saw it myself) but what i thought was good was the preceeding 2 moves that set that up, i.e. qc8 with idea of qc7... thanks again for sharing.  Best Regards, EddieB

    P.S. tell spencer I especially like the photo he has posing ala Karpov, back cover to the first chess book i read ... circa 1971 Karpovs 60 best games :)

    It must of thrilled Spencer to see Inna give him the decoy tactic! I spotted it within seconds thanks to Emmanuel Neiman's fine book, Tune Your Chess Tactics Antenna. The decoy example he uses in his book is so similar to this ending, I recognized it immediately.

    Don't just copy and paste my post.  It also doesn't help that the two posts are on the same page and are time stamped you moron.

    I wonder how often Robert Fischer was teased about his name. Poor guy...

    The last ending was really impressive. About a year ago I had a “opposite colored bishops means draw“ attitude, but after watching some videos on that topic (and doing some Mentor courses), I really like this kind of ending. So I enjoyed the last game. :)

    This was very instructive in at least reinforcing things I already know.  Which is good because repetition is the royal road to learning!  Although I will admit I missed the fork of the king and queen in your son's game.  I saw the queen h8 check, but unfortunately discounted it because I didn't see the freaking fork.  I only see forks about 50-60% of the time now, but I am improving.   By the way, I loved the title.  Nice Alliteration!

    That was a great video Ben!  I'm an anomaly in Chess, a 1500 or so rated player who likes the endgame, but I'm also strange in that I have been studying positional play, which requires endgame knowledge, before attacking.  This is because it just makes logical sense that you can't attack if your pieces and pawns aren't in the right position.  The same is true for tactics.
