This is a great video. Thanks. I don't know why i only rated it four stars. I'm a sheep. :P
I thought the examples were well explained and easy to understand and the rules of which king vs pawn games are won will help me when considering simplifying down into an endgame.

There is a buzzing in the background but it's not really noticeable unless my speakers are on full.

It's worth adding:

If a square formed by two pawns on the same rank reaches the edge of the board then one of those pawns will promote, as in the diagram below. If the pawns were one rank back or the pawn on d4 was on c4 then the king could take both pawns.

i have never read dvoretsky's myself but many ppl say that it is very complicated. Silman's book is really simple and goes over the things u REALLY REALLY need to know. in fact, silman doenst even cover B+N+K vs. K because it hardly ever comes up! I would suggest Silman's book. I jsut really enjoy his writing style

Dvoretsky is for Fide Masters and up.

If you need an encyclopedia, get Muller/Lamprecht's fundamental endings rather than dvoretsky. This is the advice told to me by GM Melik Khachiyan when i chatted with him at a local bookstore.

I wouldn't say Dvoretsky's endgame manual is for FIDE masters and up. I'm certainly not a FIDE master and I can follow it. He covers all the basic endgame situations. Yes, he goes into more detail, but most players could follow it. You can simply follow the mainline continuation and the blue highlighted text, which is the main points encapsulated. His continuations are too numerous in my opinion and they are hard to follow at times, sometimes there are three or four sub continuations within a single conitinuation! Very hard to follow. Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual should be used as an encylopedia, to dip in and out of when you need help on a particular endgame situation. I can't comment on Muller/Lamprecht's Fundamental Endings as I haven't read it, but it's hard to believe it goes into more detail than Dvoretsky's work,especially if you're going to use either one as an endgame encyclopedia.

I would recommend Silman's Endgame Course to anyone wanting to learn endgames, in fact, all his books are great for learning the game. I would also recommend Basic Chess Endings by Reuben Fine, if you're looking for a short and succint guide to the endgame.

If the d4 pawn was on c4 the king would not be able to eat any pawns. Just a draw.
