Beginner to Chess Master #19 - Lucena Position (The Shield)

Beginner to Chess Master #19 - Lucena Position (The Shield)

Sep 10, 2016, 11:34 PM 6

This is video #19 from the "Beginner to Chess Master" playlist. Rook and pawn endgames are the most popular type of endgames in chess. Of them, one of the most frequent types to arise in practice is known as the "Lucena Position", or what many, myself not included, call "The Bridge". Illustrated is a universal method to winning a key position type where the stronger side has an extra pawn and the king in front of it. Do you know what approach you can apply to the non-rook pawns that will lead you to success? Are you familiar with what I'm choosing to call a Shield?
