Clear as always. Thanks a lot!
I really think your videos - especially the endgame studies- help my game.

Glad to hear it! I like these because they're short and very instructive.

Nice endgame study and well-explained.

One quick note:
1. f6 gxf6+
2. gxf6+ Kf7
3. Kf5 Kf8
4. Ke6 Ke8
5. f7+ Kf8
6. Kf6! h6
7. Kg6 Ke7
8. Kg7 1-0

What about 3...Kg8?

Yes, there was some mistake with the anylasis, but f6+? still doesn't win to Kf7!, and black draws. After Kf5 gxf6 gxf6 h6! Ke5, it looks like white can win by triangulating (to pick up the a-pawn). However, black can triangulate as well! For example, after Kf8 Ke4, black doesn't play Kf7?? which loses to Kf5, which puts black in zugzwang, and the a-pawn will fall. There is a blog out there that gives solid tips on how to make money online at http://howtomakesolidmoney.blogspot.com. Filled with great tips on building a solid income at home. Instead, black plays Ke8!! and draws the game.

I think gxf6 also draws, but not in the line that was recorded in the video.

But what about:
1. f6+ Kf7!
2. Kf5 gxf6
3. gxf6 h6??
4. Ke5 Kf8
5. Ke4! Ke8!!
6. Kf4!!! Kf8
7. Ke5 Ke8
8. Ke6 Kf8
9. f7 1-0

I was asking about the line:
1. f6 gxf6+
2. gxf6+ Kf7
3. Kf5 Kg8!! (triangulation)

Hmm... I guess h6 is a blunder. Anyway, the whole point is that f6+? only draws.
