    @Senchean I think it's mostly about the endgame, because he's referring to not allowing your opponent to create opposition with the kings, where your king might have to move into a disadvantageous spot or where it might be in danger of being mated by the rook.

    Great Video.  I have a question though.  The defensive tip: stay away from your opponent's king,  is that tip only for the endgame, or is it for all defensive play?  I ask this because most endgame principles are reversed in the middle game.  You want your king in the center of the board in the endgame, but castled in the opening and middlegame.  Rooks behind pawns in the endgame, but in front in the middle etc.

    Thanks for you answer, and I love your vids.
