Thank you Grand Master Eugene Perelshteyn.
Really good to see the difference between theoretical and practical chess.
I need more basic ideas of endgames just like this one. Hope chess.com will present them all. This video lessons are really improving my games. Chess.com members are exploiting the opportunity to learn fast through these different programs especially video lessons and one of these days I will be very happy to read that the next chess world champ will be coming from Chess.com.
Endgame is one of my weaknesses so lookforward to future videos. Thanks.

Excellent topic, well presented, great articulation of key points, thank you!
GM Perelshteyn: Thanks for a great lesson featuring the great Capablanca! Here's a few quotes by him relevant to endgames:
A passed pawn increase in strength as the number of pieces on the board diminishes.
In order to improve your game, you must study the endgame before everything else. For whereas the endings can be studied and mastered by themselves, the opening and middle game must be studied in relation to the end game.
The best way to learn endings, as well as openings, is from the games of the masters.
The winning of a pawn among good players of even strength often means the winning of the game.
The king, which during the opening and middlegame stage is often a burden because it has to be defended, becomes in the endgame a very important and aggressive piece, and the beginner should realize this, and utilize his king as much as possible.
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
Today GM Perelshteyn starts a new series on the endgame. He defines the difference between knowing "theoretical endgame positions" and being able to play "practical endgames" at a high level. He then reviews one of the most well-known examples of great technique where White converts an extra pawn flawlessly by setting practical goals and showing patience. Eugene provides many instructional tips along the way.
