    A rare example of a top player using what must have been a painful loss for an instructional video.

    I met Larry in Cienfuegos in 1979 and certainly is a brilliant player

    On a point scale, a queen is equal to a bishop, rook and extra pawn but in practical play, when the players are even and the end-game is undecided, the player who has given up their queen for 2 rooks or a minor and a rook, has also saddled themselves with a large calculation load.  You can see Timur taking a significant amount of time even with an analysis board in front of us.  It is not so easy to find the right moves that don't leave a piece hanging.  So, not shockingly, he lost on time.  I think the lesson here is to be careful in making those types of exchanges unless you know the fortress that is going to save you or you can see a clear win or draw or you have other advantages or this type of exchange is made earlier in the game where the number of pieces count more than the overall value of the pieces.  Nice to see it demonstrated at this level of play.

    I bet Timur does a fantastic Christopher Walken impersonation.

    I agree, KenyDurant. That position may be a draw.

    @18:14 I like Kh3 in that position. Protects the pawn, and if he takes the rook its a stalemate

    Larry Christiansen is one of the most brilliant tactical players the game has ever seen (IMHO). I would defintely welcome a video series on some of his best games.
