once I blundered amy queen and 50 moves later I won by checkmating my opponent with the bishop pair and only my bishop pair in the middlegame. Too bad it wasn't a rated game . Not trying to brag.
Very imaginative defenses!
ahahaha! Nicely done. The first game is not really explained as your opponent traded into a pawn endgame that was lost. I enjoyed the video. thx
Sorry Keaton,but you have to win the Candidates tournament to challenge Magnus Carlsen now since he won the World Championship.
Keaton, one game I played my queen got trapped, so I had to trade it off for a rook but checkmated my opponent with 2 rooks and a bishop, and he had a rook, a knight, and a Queen.
Yes, I'm sure playing Carlsen would have gone really well for me ;) @ 10:31 it is possible for the White Queen to stop the pawn. She has to check the black king a few times until she gains access to either the first rank or the h file from where the black h pawn can be stopped. I probably should have mentioned that :)
At 10:31, white cant top black from queening
Tough play, maybe you should have played Carlsen.
Aww, thanks guys!
Just the best a player can get, I want to be a member, but I've no credit cards..
Very good video. In the third game g4 is a really good move, hard to find I think, I certainly had no hope of finding that. And in that game f5 later on is very interesting the way it almost swings the R and P ending to a win. Thanks.
That variation starting at 28:09 where White King captures on f5, Ra5 was the follow up. Wouldn't White simply play pawn e5, checking the Black King and winning the pawn on c2?
Don't see what I'm missing x.x
The video should be called: IM Keaton crushing kids' dreams. JK.
Love this series! Thanks for sharing your nice games!
2 out 3 from three lost pos. Now i look chess like a fight but still i keep my artistic ambition! Great examples tx to show !
Keaton I live in dallas too!
I wouldn't call it swindling Keaton, I would just call it playing the games out to the best of your ability and not giving up. Thus giving your opponent chances to slip up.
Thanks, very instructive.

With chagrin, IM Keaton Kiewra shows us three worse or losing positions from the same tournament. How many did he actually end up losing? Zero! By digging in and finding hidden resources, Kiewra shows you how to play from worse positions. These pragmatic lessons may take away from the artistic side of you, but isn't there beauty in being a fighter? Our author certainly thinks so!
