Thank you, IM Zierk for this great series!:)
CLEAR AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND NEED MORE where is number 5-10?
Interesting positions to study. Thanks!
Thank you for such clear illustrations. Terrific stuff.
It would be good to hear "here is the position with white or black to move" so we can pause and try to find the move prior to each mini lesson. We could look at both but it would be easier. Thanks
Your videos are great!
Great stuff. End games are so complicated - it's great to see these positions played through
That's the clearest and most easy to understand lecture I've seen. Well done!!
by IM Steven Zierk
In his fourth video on king and pawn endgames, FM Zierk asks the viewer to take the tools learned in his first three lectures and analyze their first difficult endgames. Themes include king activity/penetration, the creation of passed pawns, and some cool positional pawn sacrifices.
