you are tryin to master a certain endgame and you start with an impossible fantasy position where black moves first and you are playing crap moves for both sides, against yourself. There are ways to learn endgames. They're called endgames books written by professionals. Your own ideas about how to learn always fail in chess. You are patzer and will remain one

Try this tactic after black rook captures knight on F7. White to move. I got it in TT, it took me long time.

this type of tactics are difficult to perceive in a game.  as a general rule if you cannot solve a tactics within two minutes,  you are unlikely to see in a game.  i think it is not much of a use to be razor sharp in finding difficult tactics.  i think for beginners it would be more benificial  if they know how to increase pressure in a position. it is no brainer that lots of people crack under pressure.  same psychological factor exists in chess also.  

also a lot of people are careless.  so they unlikely to smell a advanced tactics.

i can even draw with a double pawn with a strong player(1950 in blitz) in a king and pawn endgame in my creative method to learn endgame. 

this game shows why i will soon discovered all the tricks in endgame usually not possible by reading only a  book.

in this daily game i tested which is stronger,  queen or two rook. 

initial position was equal

what a game i discovered  to understand how to create threat with knight

i even manages to deliver checkmate in this knight and king game. 

 

111deuri

one of best fight i have ever played

this game shows how i was able to put knight on the sixth rank with absolute dominance. i just managed to steal an extra tempo from him. if i was extra tempo down i would have got mated instead

You say your puzzle rush and rating increased but you didn't say by how much and over what time frame. I would be curious to know this information.

my puzzle rush average score is steadily increasing to 17.  i manage to increase my average score by doing easy unrated learning tactics.  my daily rating has increased by about 180 points in the last 30 days.  i think this resulted by my improve knowledge of both how to create tactics,  understanding pawn structure and my this thread is almost all endgame training  oriented.  i can say i can hold even good players in king and pawn endgame.

in this game i tried to understand middlegame position by only having minor pieces and pawns.  i manage to win a pawn. 

but its a draw

Why are you practicing positions that are impossible to happen in a game? Some of the positions are theoretically possible, but most aren't even that. You will never see an endgame that looks remotely like that in a real game.

That's a good question.  But for some reason,  it is working for me.  I for some reason have a different learning abilities. I struggled to learn from book.  Maybe,  cramping a lot during college years had made my memory dysfunction in nature.  I am planning to study some dk publishing book to rediscovered my form in reading.  Till then,  I have to continue this training presented in this thread.  The good news is that even though i had lot many draws,  I have some wins and a few losses.  Thus,  overall,  my rating point is increasing continously.

In this special game consists of  only bishops, rooks and pawns, I was able to delivere mate with a pawn. Playing this type of game teaches us how to tackle various middlegame position arising out of bishops and rooks endgame. Enjoy the game

That was pretty sloppy.

my this opponent certainly does not know the threat that arises out of the combination between the rook,  bishop and pawns.

my sloppiness was the result of not looking at the square his bishop will land to pin my rook.
