    @21 min (direct b5 line instead of first improving knight)..doesn't g5 by black after exchange on  b5 is kind of equal?

    i mean it guarantees at least one less pawn(improves bishop, more chances of draw by virtue of sacking minor piece for last pawn). if white tries to go king side with rook attack the b5 pawn with rook(not king which is better placed to go king side now than after capturing b5).

    other possibility is not to let the rook cross to king side(might not work as is purely defensive)

    @learningthemoves -- The main issue would be that if you block the diagonal with the Knight, the bishop might simply trade it off and the rook ending would be difficult to win. Also, there's a good chance that if you block with the Knight, the King will then be checked by black's Rook and have issues if it is tied down to defending the Knight from the Bishop.


    Thanks for enjoying the video... Thanks to everyone!

    Danny, first off, thanks for the insightful instruction.

    I especially enjoyed the endgame analysis with your draw with the GM.

    One ideal position for white appeared in my mind's eye a few moves before the drawn position and I wondered your thoughts.

    You know where your opponent reached his ideal defensive position with the bishop on the diagonal with the plan to slow your pawn push?

    What happens if you defend your passed pawn on the a file with your rook and then block black's bishop with your knight protected by your king?

    Wouldn't that successfully promote your a file pawn and win for white?

    Would the difficulty lie in being able to accomplish both the rook on a file pawn protection move as well as the simple knight blocks bishop protected by king?

    I always enjoy your vids and insight.
