The endgame is considered the most complex stage of the game and being good at endgames often helps players improve their performance in other stages of the game, too. Nowadays, practical endgames are some of the most instructive training tools that are used by professional players to prepare and excel in serious chess tournaments. In today’s lecture, I focus on practical endgames and the importance of passed pawns in them. Pawns typically gain considerable value during the endgame and by advancing forward and forming different structures they can often become stronger than a couple of enemy’s pieces. It is only then when we can see how subtle one’s understanding of practical endgames should be to detect these position dynamics and take advantage of them at the right time. Enjoy!
