That is great using one promotion to cover another in the last line. Excellent game and excellent (as always) presentation.
Really really good end-game lesson. I'm normally frustrated and afraid of end games, but I learned something here.
Tarrasch put his Rook on a1? "Why?! You are about to learn in a minute. He is about to use that Rook to... you will see why!" Wow, GM Bojkov's passion for this particular endgame really shines through!
Good video..my great weakness is the endgames. This is a video for me to watch a few times! Thanks alot!
, thank you, too!
GM Bojkov! I don't always watch endgame vids, but your crystal clear explanation made me think otherwise. Thank you very much :D
Great endgame study. thanks.
That is a great video. Please keep them coming.
Great endgame and great lesson from a great teacher!
thanks for the medicine...
Maybe just f6, h6, and after you take the bishop, Black has 3 pawns for the bishop. And you cannot take on f4, as there is Rc3+ Tricky :)
at 6:33 I would suggest Rg1 instead of Re5. Anything wrong with that?
Very very nice GM Bojkov thanks so much this is a great endgame lesson!!
Yes this was a good prescription from the Doctor Tarrasch - I love endgames and this was amazing to see!! I will be watching for opportunities to apply such techniques in my own endgames :)
It would have been great to see the doctor convert the pawnless KQkr ending. :)

Get ready for one of the most interesting "Passed Pawns vs a Rook" battles you have ever seen! Of course, you have to sit through twenty minutes of awesome endgame technique by Dr. Tarrasch first, but the wait is well worth it! Try to learn something from how he maneuvers the Rook and dark squared Bishop too. GM Dejan Bojkov is, once again, your guide!
