    At the beginning of the video I am using the same definition: the amount of squares the pieces have behind the pawns. The endgame situation is indeed a different one. There are no longer many pieces, so how many squares you have for them has become less relevant. Thinking it over again, it's more about "having advanced pawns" than about "having a space advantage" at that point. But this is one of the transitions you can make from a middlegame with a space advantage, to an endgame where you have some breakthrough possible with your advanced pawns, so it makes sense to cover it here.

    IM Pruess is using 2 slightly different definitions of space. In his first video he said that space would be the number of save squares for your own pieces but in this video he uses space in the meaning of "how advanced the own pawns are".

    it is one of the standard uses of a space advantage :)

    BTW David, I have never considered a successful breakthrough determined by a space advantage and I don't remember having heard something like that. Quite interesting! Is this the standard way of considering it or is it something like a conclusion of yours?

    I'm speechless. Being an IM or a GM is one thing, but being skilled enough to provide such learning material is something that few people are. Thanks, David!

    ok, the last examples are endgames, so i believe you mean the game with the two-bishop sacrifice, Lasker-Bauer. that is called the "bird larsen attack" characterized by the pawn on f4 (Bird's opening) and the b3-Bb2 on the queenside (which on its own is sometimes called "Larsen's Opening").
