There are lots variation, mastery and quick thinking is imperative
This requires good brain storming
A great video I'm starting to really like your analysis style! It can be amazing what you see after the game but miss in the heat of the moment even at GM level it seems! I look forward to the next one and kudos on not accepting the draw when you knew you could win
Fun video! That was an exciting game
Great video, good luck in your games

by GM Timur Gareev
Using a tenacious will to win, GM Timur Gareev fights for six hours at the end of a long tournament, and grinds out an endgame, winning by one tempo. The game looked deadlocked for most of the middlegame, but a slight imbalance in the center gave Gareev just enough room to win a pawn. In mutual time pressure, GM Conrad Holt missed a drawing simplification, leading to an instructive queen-and-pawn endgame win for the second-seeded Gareev.
