The lesson is good and the endgame examples very helpful.
I love this series in particular and all your videos in general Mr. Bojkov ! You really did a great job ! Thank you very much !
The last two comments made me really proud! Thank you!
This video series is excellent, covering a topic that is often not covered well,if at all. The thinking aproach outlined in this series,I was able to apply right away in one of my online games. Thank you very much Mr. Bojkov, you have chosen excellent examples that show the themes very well. Keep up the good work Mr. Bojkov and the staff at chess.com.
This is the best video in the series so far! I will be watching it again when I'm less tired so I can take some notes though. I haven't checked with a computer yet I could be totally wrong here but Bxd5! seems to work at the end because there is not time to move/activate/save the bishop so a sac on d5 actually puts the bishop to use by getting a pawn and more importantly breaking up blacks central pawn chain. 7 pawns vs 3 pawns and a rook must surely be winning! Or at least drawish...
t which moment Bf3+ shuffleking?
Instead of Re8 to stop mate, what about Bf3+ first?
really exciting !
Great video. keep up the good work.
I always get into positions like these too! Nice to learn how to get out.

Even the best have to defend! As GM Bojkov displays in his first two examples, World Champions Smyslov and Kasparov were both excellent defenders. Learn to recognize your defensive opportunities, learn how to defend aggressively and with dynamic moves, and develop an understanding about when and when not to trade pieces while defending.
