    Why is the video 33 minutes long but I only get 7:22 on my android?

    IM Rensch is bizarrely verbose but if you put that aside his videos are informative and worth it.

    Great video! all the tactics were great!

    although is the final position completely forced (the last few moves)?

    Yeah you got me. I said Rc8 and didn't consider Qd6. Sue me

    Very informative series until 28 minutes into the video when IM Daniel Rensch  attempted a English accent at that point I choked on my tea as such I think he deserves a dam good spanking.

    It would be nearly impossible to tolerate these videos more than once.  The material is great but too much filler.  Like 4 1/2 minutes in the opening of bla, bla, bla. This would really be a less than 15 minute video with minimal admonitions, such as to pause.

    On the plus side he can be funny, his silly side would endear him to many an elementary school crowd (no slur intended). Yeah, I talk too much too.

    wrong. it wasn't necessary to solve it all the way. everything flowed from the first main idea. (fairly sure I have solved that one successfully before though)

    Thank you very much for answering. Yes of course this position better for white.
    By "not so clear" I'm only trying to say that in that endgame white have to play hard and precisely to win. Because, as far as I know, such endgames can very easy lead to theoretically draw positions, for instance after:

    It is draw position.
    But I'm absolutely agree that it should be winning endgame for white.

    @Frei - Yeah, the position may not be an *immediate* win but saying it's "not so clear" is a stretch. White is still pushing and close to winning with the extra g-pawn in multiple lines.

    Sorry, but in last problem after Qg3 black is not forced to play .. Qd5.
    And after  .. Kb5! position absolutly not so clear and white have no way to immediate win.

    no because then black queen takes a7 putting white king in check with no threat on the opposing queen.
