I REALLY hope that the "I do drugs sometimes" was a REALLY sick joke!
so much to process! thank you very much :)
wow.. I love the subtleties of high level mating patterns
" i do drugs"
haha such a dry sense of humour
At 10:10 Rh2+ does win because if Rh3 Bf6+ wins the rook.
i guess it does not matter eather the light-squared bishop or the dark-squared bishop.Good video too
This lecture was better organized than the first in the series. However, please try to explain the alternatives more clearly. Descriptions such as if "if the king goes here, then check, check, check" are just too confusing. Thanks
Have the demo but the move is Kh5...
what is the game he referenced in the beginning again?
Fantastic video! You're definitely one of my favourite lecturers Josh! I'll be watching this one a few times over to say the least!
The most useful chess video I have ever seen and I've seen MANY! And again, I am not just saying this, I mean it. I will rewatch this plenty of times!

Oh man, why is it a demo ?? It was very interesting
by GM Josh Friedel
R+B v R is, in practice, more often than not won by the side with the bishop, despite being a theoretical draw. However, the techniques for making progress against faulty defense or for winning the winning positions that may arise is anything but simple. After completing this two part lesson on R+B, achieve true mastery the way GM Friedel did: by passing on your newfound knowledge to friends.
