    Thanks Coach, I actually use this method to beat a strong A player. A couple of my opponent's expert friends were claiming that I could of played better until a Master told them "no, he played right". It was exciting as people crowded around and and with little time left, allowing my opponent's pawn to pass to protect my king's back. I love the endgame, especially the Rook endgame.

    What's the hurry Danny?  Is Happy Hour about to start?

    Very helpful video not only to see how the umbrella method works, but also to see how these positions link up to earlier Philidor, and Rook/Longside King/Shortside techniques.  Invaluable, and also satisfying.  But no need to think that if the video goes over 18 minutes, Armageddon will ensue.

    Stars: 4 of 5.

    On the second umbrella method from the original position (Black Kg8 Rb5 pawn f6, and White Kh4 Rd7 pawn f4 g4) what happens if : Black Rb1 White Kh1 Black Rf1 ?

    It works! I... actually... know what to do in the same speed you do it!!  *hugs* Danny.

    Although after 1½ week of rook endings. (INTENSELY) I am eager to move on to your next video series coming back to 1-7 of this series occasionally :)

    I'll definately try not to exchange my last rook now in any game unless its won. A powerfull ally it has become my master! (Insert awkward Star wars reference)

    I'm learning so much from this series. These are even better than some of the mentor series on rook endings, and much better than any endgame book I've ever read. I took the liberty of making one of the umbrella positions into a tactics trainer problem :

    Already people are finding this problem very difficult to solve, but I'm sure everyone who has watched this video will find it easy to solve if they come across this puzzle.

    I'm going to keep reviewing this video until I start using the umbrella of protecting in my games. It's a powerful weapon and a nice maneuver.
