Thank you kind sir important info.
Thanks for your comment, f7f5 and thanks for sharing my lectures and finding mistakes in them . Indeed, in the first line that you mention at 14.20, the move 8.Ba6+ is not needed and is just making the win more complicated (if possible at all). Correct is the immediate 8.e7!, when Rd7-d8+ followed by pawn promotion indeed cannot be stopped and the bishop on b5 is far away from the black king.
Thanks again for your help!
In comparison with pure OCB endgames, d4soldier, you could figure that out I know ;)
Great video. =)
this is just such a refreshing site from all the negative chaos happening in yahoo chess...
"these endgames usually provide better winning chances for the side who has the advantage".. Hmm i never thought about it that way
Keep up the good work!!
Brilliant !!!! ... highly instructive !!!! Thank you GM Bojkov ... Best Regards, EddieB
I've watch many of the top video authors, and I believe your videos are as good as any others. For me, the content and delivery stand out.
Thank you Coach Bojkov.
I like these shorter videos. I also like the bullet points, it helps me remember!
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Are you OCD about OCBs? GM Bojkov is here with your daily prescription: take three beautiful endgame wins and call him in the morning. A trio of perfectly executed rook and bishop endings show that mate is possible even in the endgame. The extra half-points are like low hanging fruit for the experienced endgame player. Watch and learn how to convert with rook and opposite colored bishop - you'll have that peace of mind you've always wanted.
