    dreamcrusher, this supports the 50% theory.  Here are two games of GM Khachiyan.  In the first game referred to in the video, Melikset plays the f+h pawn ending flawlessly.  In the second game vs Naroditsky, even the maestro slips.  The errors were found by using tablebase.

    So simple but yet so complex when you cannot see it. This teaches you how to look outside of the box;Smile to take a different look at a position you would think is lost and get a draw out of it. The difference between a swordsman and a true sword master; touche!!

    Yes, the audio was awful and the speaker makes it sound like a few tips will give you what it takes to draw this endgame. Sure, good luck!  One slip and you are done.  That said, I like the video and it does give you ideas, such as sacking the h pawn to win with the f pawn (which the weaker side should avoid).  A good video.

    The best explanation of this endgame that I have seen!  However I think you are understating the difficulty of the defense.  I have heard that even Grandmasters misplay the defense and lose this endgame about 50% of the time.  Thanks for another excellent video!  I would like to see more endgame videos from you.  You do an excellent job!

    I have to complain about the sound in this video. Would it be possible to make the voice sound without ecco, and perhaps a bit more soft (not so sharp)? I am not talking about the speaker, but the mic and software being used here.

    This was an absolutely excellent Rook Ending series! Too bad it has to stop here. Melik, I beg you, give us just one more Rook Ending video, as a bonus. BK
