    @15:00 I currently have a game with a very similar pawn setup - my opponent first doubled and won my outside passed a-pawn before reaching this exact position below... - how ironic is it that the day I rewatch this lecture that I have this game on the go! Laughing Maybe I can pick up some more ideas!?... Just finished watching this awesome video and now realize I need to get perpetual checks and that my best result will be a draw Foot in mouth

    Hey, Danny

    At 12:14 you mentioned that the two rooks can sacrifice themselves for the queen so white can win the 2 v 1 king and pawn endgame.  After trying to win it, and not being able to, I fired up the ol' tablebases and it confirmed that it is drawn!

     Mr. Rensch

    I really enjoyed watching your video. As a beginner I was taught that 2 rooks are slightly better than the queen. Unfortunately I was left to figure out why this is so. Of course a lot depends on other factors in the position. Thank you for creating an exceptional video that clearly explains what those "other factors" could be, and how to best make use the 2 rooks vs Queen advantage.  The audio problem in the recording was very minor and did not compromise the value of the instruction. Please forgive me for speaking informally. You're the best Dan!

    you all know he does these kind of things, like switching microphones mid way through, because he is evil and is implementing some kind of mind control. kidding.

    seriously. i was told to learn how the rooks were better than queen.

    he was saying "the rooks completely dominate the queen. why?"

    and then "hope you enjoyed this video"

    well. i guess you cant do ANYTHING without a darned membership

    All -- I am aware of how bad my mic is in the first half of this video... and I apologize. You can note that after the 17 minute mark the sound is MUCH better. We have made significant improvements to our audio quality recently, BUT many videos have already been recorded with the "older standard"...

    Please forgive the sound and comment on the content... I hope you enjoyed the video beyone the microphone!!!

    Kramnik with those rooks is just mind-boggling. I bet Leko was apprehensive at best when Kramnik swapped his queen for a "conglomerate" of pieces. I'm sure it was an overwhelming sense of "oh shit, here we goooo!"

    Thank you Mr Rensch ... I'm Looking forward for the Rook vs 5 Pawns imbalance like in the Grischuk - Shirov game and the double exchange like in the Kotov - Najdorf drawn game Laughing

    The sound is very tinny and indeed ear-peircing. great video -- worth suffering through the 's' sounds, thanks!
