FM Elliott Liu won a piece in Part 1, simplified in Part 2, and now it is time to bring home the point in Part 3. In the finale, despite still being up a piece, Liu's king is way offside, and his opponent's king is charging into his position. Fortresses, stalemate traps, zugzwang, passed pawns - all the endgame elements are there in this video. Had he focused even more on "restriction" of black's pieces, he would have probably only had to make two parts to the series!
