Everything has been cleaned up already in the Congres Center in Mainz but not yet here at ChessVibes. There are still some videos left from the rapid tournaments. I have shot some timescrambles of well-known grandmasters, and so it looks like you're standing next to the boards of gentlemen such as Grischuk, Karjakin or Mamedyarov. Similar in all these action movies: endgame technique. The big guys usually seem to beat the slightly smaller guys with accurately played little endgames. Instructive!

This is Grischuk-Czebe, FiNex Open (04) 2007. Or: how do you win a not so easy bishop ending.



In this game, Sargissian-Volokitin, something strange happens: at some point the clock goes on strike. Sargissian walks away while Volokitin keeps on concentrating.



Here a nice ending by Pavel Tregubov, beating Mamedyarov on just one tempo.



Here's Karjakin with an exchange up against Sargissian and finishing it nicely.
