    Oh. The variation g6 hxg6+ Kg7 g4!? still draws after fxg3 e.p. :D 
    A fascinating and inspiring rook endgame.

    Is this how you spell that word?

    weird fact. first videos I had to TAB back and forth a few times to even set up your simple positions in Fritz. Now after a brief look I can set these positions up quickly. It must be what you refer to as datababes. When you are familiar with the theme presented your brain remembers it better.

    Edit; Erhm Databases. Not datababes. Both makes sense though. Dunno what I was thinking :p

    Damn after 5ish seconds my brain told me to play g6 only needing to shut down the white f pawn in order to have a drawing postion. Punishing a white f4 simply with Rxf4 and then back in the a-file, hitting like a rattlesnake.

    Too bad it was a tiny bit more advanced with move order. Would have been cool to see the right move instantly. BUT I got the idea right without thinking. My braind just told me that was the move.

    Eeriee stuff. Was that a glimse of how GMs' brains work?

    is a puzzle following a blunder by black that I wouldn't have understood prior to watching this video series. Thankyou so much.

    This video was the best in the Rook Endgames series.

    I was wondering why you couldn't play Rd8 at 26:00 but I checked my engine and realized that Rc8 is better because it prevents Ra6+, when white can play Rc6. After Rd8 Ra6+ black wins the a pawn for the f pawn and should draw. Thanks for the videos, I've watched the whole series.

    Great endgame, very instructional commentary!

    Rg8 would win, when your king is on e7. The White king can go to e2, then d1, and on. he goes over it in the video.

    In the game played, after black missed the F4 push, at some point he was able to get his pawn to d2. Wouldn't the threat of queening tie white's king down?? And have the black king move between F7 and E7 to avoid the zugzwang?
