Here it is...My first Video and my entry to the Short Video Contest!! :)

Sry, for my very bad English!! It´s very hard for me to speak (write) English, but I guess maybe it´s even harder for you to listen!! ;)

So please give me some feedback, if it makes sence to continue the work, or if you think
it´s a compleate waste of time and I should stop it right now!!

Thx so far and greetings from germany,

Svente

I thought this was a very good video! That last position in the video looked hopeless for white to me, but you showed how it is a draw!

Svente, do not feel as if your English is lacking. It was perfect, with just an accent. The only travesty would be if you did not make any more chess videos. Kudos on an excellent video!!

So much thanks for all these friendly words!! I have not expected....

At school I had to repeat a class because of english, and after graduation (10 years ago) I had (nearly) never again the opportunity to use it. So I was realy afraid of posting this video!! :)

Excellent video. This is the method young and beginning players need illustrated to them to set them on the path to not only winning chess but mentally satisfying ultimate understanding of chess. This is the wonderful thing about education, it frees the mind.

Aaron Nimzowitsch, Hans Kmoch, Rueben Fine and Yuri Averbach were my teachers who, many years ago when I was a young beginning player, set me on this path. The hidden geometries of the chess board are a powerful weapon against those ignorant of its existence. A reliable tool simplifying the otherwise hit and miss, laborious process of analyzing a position.

The hidden geometries of the board are in all phases of the game (opening, middlegame and endgame).

In just words, I cannot encourage you strongly enough to please continue producing videos of this lovely clarity. I presently teach 20 young middle schoolers this wonderful game called chess. With your permission I would like to use this video with my students. :D

Thank you

This is a very, very good video. In 14 minutes (not even the fully allowed time!) you managed to explain some very imporant aspects of the pawn-ending, not only managing to explain a basic ending in the beginning in a very convincing and understandable way, but also advancing to truely difficult manouvres like the one of Reti in the end.

Your English is not bad and even if it were a bit worse, your skill makes more than up for it.

I thought this was, an excellent presentation! It was very clear and the amount of stuff covered in 15 minutes was excellent! Pure 5 stars!

First of all, to discern with Svente concern of his English. Your english is very good, dont change a thing in the future! Your accent was very easy to pick up for me and im a hillbilly american :) I think you made it even easier because of your patience in speaking mannerism. so A++ for that!

Second of all, I have did a more in depth study of pawn endings than probably most non-masters, so I already knew these positions and the thematic patterns, However you did a splendid job of satisfying the 15 min limitation as well as giving direction to the novice player on how to manage such endgames. You selected very good examples as well, Reti position is one everyone should know. It teaches that pawn endgames are tricky and must be evaluated correctly before trading those rooks, or minor pieces so to speak. And as I said in Claus's video. Kudo's for choosing the endgame topic as a video contest choice!

A note to all players.....studying the endgame can be boring...especially at first but the rewards are greater here than in any other phase of the game, believe me. It is always great satisfaction to mate your opponent in the middlegame, but as you progress up those rating charts this will occur a lot less often than you would like :)
