Thx, very instructive! What have I also learned today? I must practice thematic thinking! Thx!
Eugene, great job!!! thx!
Excellent vido. Excellent series. Thanks very much.
I really need to work on my endgames more this was an enjoyable lesson!
another great endgame video.
Thank you very much for this very instructive brilliant, analysis. You are helping my endgames very much.
with the setup at 2:10, why is it a draw with white square bishop?
What if Black kings moves over to f4, and then takes the g2 pawn with the bishop, black can then win...or am I missing something
Great video. =)
My coach and I were just going over endgames like this one. Thanks for helping me understand BETTER....
This is awesome ! Keep them up!
If h4 leaves white defenseless, why doesn't black just play Rh8 and get it by force?
I saw the king to f8 move, but I thought if white then played rd1, then after rxd1, kxd1 I was confused with the race of black king and h pawn vs. white king and c pawn.
thank you for this video - it's way better than reading the same stuff from a book and dozing off..... :)
super thank u sir
Thank you Grand Master Eugene Perelshteyn.
Excellent series, Eugene! I like the blend of theoretical and practical endings, and the stress on forming a plan or scheme. Very helpful. Keep them coming!
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
We all know Capablanca's endgame acumen, but GM Eugene Perelshteyn tells us that another world champion is equally deserving of our attention. Here Smyslov methodically overruns Gligoric, as Perelshteyn shows you how to envision a winning plan before starting your endgame journey. Even a doubled pawn can be enough for victory!
