Nice video. Hey, you remember me? I am Kevin!
Thanks Tatev your instruction and self analysis. I play the French so I have watched all your videos and look forward to more!
It's good to still keep a cool head despite realizing you had blundered! That is why you're a WGM afterall! Great endgame play
Nicely presented. Sometimes mistakes are the most instructive parts of the game. I enjoyed your explanation of the winning endgame technique and look forward to further videos+.
Nice result at the tournament. I just started the Tarrasch as White. The French Defense can be very complicated with all the pawns and pieces still on the board. Your Rc5 blunder reminded me of Carlsens rook blunder against 'The Chess Queen' so you're in good company.
thank you for sharing your analysise
why do i only see the comments and no video on all the videos on chess.com, last week i could still watch vidoes
.. w0w :))
by WGM Tatev Abrahamyan
After blundering a pair of pawns on separate occasions, WGM Tatev Abrahamyan was determined to still convert a rook-and-pawn endgame in round one of the 2013 U.S. Women's Championship. After initially getting upset at herself for simply hanging a pawn and missing a simple tactic for the other one, she never lets her guard down after that, and still converts by using a beautiful zugzwang. The inauspicious start still led a solid third-place finish.
