    Okay I sort of feel like a moron after finishing the video and seeing Danny point out the SAME EXACT lines I mentioned I guess I should only post after finishing the video.

    Okay! Important correction I don't know if anyone has made is that while g3 may not be accurate (28:22) it doesn't deserve a "??" because white is still completely winning as I discovered should he correctly not take (it ain't checkers) and instead play Kd7 and if black plays Kf7 he will go to d8 and black loses on Kf8 because white can now take on g6. Many complex lines follow some involving the white king to go all the way around via h8! Analyze this interesting position for bonus points! Please comment!

    Just to clarify exclamiviatch (main spelling see others below) can be used as a noun or an adjective or just an adjective? Please get back to me on this! (Can't sound like an idiot you know)

     

    Exclam- (this much is agreed on by almost all authorities.

            iveeahtch-unusual but phonetic.

            yvyatch- (!?) not so English but interesting.

            eviatch (!)- equally accurate to the main spelling (see above) but less principled. (All spellings have been tried w/o the 't' but with less effectiveness. Also some foriegners have tried some sort of Ehcksclamiviyazz (??) but it has been considered dubious by all experts (Indeed Stockfish has proven it to be losing!)

    Is this how you spell that word?

    "Exclamivitch"

    Close! Actually, the way he says it, it sounds as if it is spelled like so: Exlamiviatch. So you're only missing an 'a'. Carry on!

    Oh. The variation g6 hxg6+ Kg7 g4!? still draws after fxg3 e.p. :D 
    A fascinating and inspiring rook endgame.

    weird fact. first videos I had to TAB back and forth a few times to even set up your simple positions in Fritz. Now after a brief look I can set these positions up quickly. It must be what you refer to as datababes. When you are familiar with the theme presented your brain remembers it better.

    Edit; Erhm Databases. Not datababes. Both makes sense though. Dunno what I was thinking :p

    Damn after 5ish seconds my brain told me to play g6 only needing to shut down the white f pawn in order to have a drawing postion. Punishing a white f4 simply with Rxf4 and then back in the a-file, hitting like a rattlesnake.

    Too bad it was a tiny bit more advanced with move order. Would have been cool to see the right move instantly. BUT I got the idea right without thinking. My braind just told me that was the move.

    Eeriee stuff. Was that a glimse of how GMs' brains work?

    is a puzzle following a blunder by black that I wouldn't have understood prior to watching this video series. Thankyou so much.

    This video was the best in the Rook Endgames series.

    I was wondering why you couldn't play Rd8 at 26:00 but I checked my engine and realized that Rc8 is better because it prevents Ra6+, when white can play Rc6. After Rd8 Ra6+ black wins the a pawn for the f pawn and should draw. Thanks for the videos, I've watched the whole series.
