Such a mind blowing lesson.
please! Your crazy!
nice video! one question: in the last example, can't white play h5 instead of taking g5 so that in the end black has both his f and g pawns and can not get stalemated
This is a great video. The whole series of 5 videos on king and pawn endings is really great with each video building on what you already learned in the previous videos. I am looking forward to some of my games coming down to K and P endings so I can try out this new found knowledge and hopefully be able to put some of it into practice. Thanks Danny, great videos.
i'm shocked that i've never heard anything about triangulation, flanking and the last one (forgot the name)...
this was an very helpful. thank you
Great video Danny!
This is ABC but not everyone knows his ABCs...
Great series, but where is the last video? I can't seem to find it.
Thank you International Master.
very nice video
Excellent video series,although I am still absorbing all of it!
Great video! thanks.
Yeah the solution to the first problem is flawed. Black can triangulate too. The solution shd be h4! Keeping the black king out of g5 and giving the white king enough to get to the other side
i don't understand... just 4 minuts and not show nothing!
I played through your final king and pawn ending agains the FM. I finally found the Kc4-d4-e5 idea. Houdini found that if black goes for that same idea, but leaves his pawn on f7, then it is a draw, as it still allows the queen v. bishop-pawn ending, but disallows white from winning his pawn in such a way that the c2 pawn covers d3 and is ready to move two spaces in one go.

In the "Final Stage" (though not final video, as there is a bonus coming your way) we learn advanced triangulation, corresponding square techniques, defensive opposition "sacrifices", and why IM Rensch isn't very good at applying this knowledge himself! In a game against FM Kaminsky from the Canadian Open 2007, we witness the butchering of a King and Pawn Ending by two strong players, only to climax with an incredibly instructive and useful trick...
