In this week's video, user headshottingandsuch and I play a game which they finish with a nice little tactic, can you spot it? Then I show you a Rook endgame we came across at one point in our analysis. While it should be a win for White it's pretty tricky, copy the FEN and see if you can covert it! Next headshottingandsuch and I analyze one position to find better moves for Black. 

I'll post the FEN string for the endgame here as well

(6k1/R6p/4P1p1/p3r3/1p6/6P1/PPP4P/6K1 w - -)

White is up two pawns in a rook ending, but it's tough to convert! On Lichess you can try it against ever harder computers by going to Tools>Analysis Board, then in the menu at the bottom of the move list click board editor. Delete the FEN string that's there and paste this instead. You then click "continue from here" and can play against the machine and choose the difficulty. Try both sides of the endgame and see how well you can do against the strongest computer!
