    That was a really great video, thanks for posting. I all too frequently make mistakes in endgames.

    Instead of g6 isn't it better to immediately take on c4?

    Amazing game! It's easy for us to say they are trivial mistakes but they're the GM's sat at the board... fatigue can get the better of anyone, and it seems Anand and Giri both fell to fatigue (posssibly) in their endgames and missed an oversight.

    I really enjoyed the analysis Melik this was a great video Laughing

    Players at my level are told over and over to keep their endgame rooks active, but I, for one, don't really understand what "active" means.  In the Giri game, Rf7 looked more active than Re4 because it attacks White's f pawn while doubling as a defesive guard.

    I'd like if a video author would spend a lot of time saying why this is more active than that, and how to determine activity in a difficult position.

    I too, am steadily becoming a fan of Melikset Khachiyan's videos.

    Thanks GM Melik

    Great video for those who beat themselves up when making a mistake in chess!  I know a good friend who would benefit from watching this video.

    You, Mr. Melikset Khachiyan, are easily the best teacher on this website.

    That Anand That's a basic principle that Capablanca explains in Chess Fundamentals: a king and pawn/s endgame can be drawn a pawn down if you can get "one pawn to hold off two opponent pawns".
