    Can someone please tell me why on 09:23 the black rook can't take the pawn on d4 because the black pawn breakthrough after the exchanges will be too quick?

    I love this endgame!  This belongs in a book, wonderful example of domination.  I love the King going back and forth, wow!

    The maxim I learned is: in an opposite-colored bishop endgame, if you want to draw, put your pawns on the same color as your bishop. If you want to win, put them on the other color. Ben could violate that maxim here because his pieces were so dominant. Nice video.

    Enjoyed this video GM Ben Finegold and learned. Thanks.

    I always seemed to get confused about where to fix the pawns in relation to the bishop color in endgames.

    On one hand, I didn't want to put them on the same color of the opponent's bishop, because that meant he could just mop them up with his bishop and win the endgame.

    But now I see, it's more important to restrict his bishop by placing the pawns on the color of the opponent's bishop while at the same time freeing up the opposite color so my own bishop has more squares.
