The Principle of Two Weaknesses, it changes my live of chess, thx!
I saw this end game technice on chesskid.com in the video lesson thingi.
Oh by the by the way i do not know how to spell techniceand thingi.
I look at this one every few weeks. Very instructive and well presented
Really like the way you explain things. Keep up the good work.
@CrazyNorwegian - Yep, that seems to win also. Nice find.
Very instructive and very well done! Nice planning...
Great video Mike, thanks. At 18:11, does Kh5 also lead to a zugzwang? If the bishop moves off the short diagonal then a6 hangs, and as far as I can tell any other move lets the king break through.
I really get a lot out of your lessons. Your explanations which are just right for me (class B OTB). I love the endgame!
Good video, everything explained in simple & plain english.
thank you for telling me that.
Good game, good descriptions, nice job. Thanks!
Great endgame technique
by FM Mike Klein
In Part 6, FM Mike Klein was ahead a pawn and broke through on the opposite flank to create his second weakness. Today, he takes an equal position and attempts to win both sides of the board as well. Don't be afraid to transition into an endgame that you can't possibly lose, even if you're not sure you're winning. It's more technical than tactical, but so is the process of setting your chess clock!
