Excellent. I think a student could mine many hours of endgame lessons from a close study of these positions. One idea is to play the following positions against the computer, switching sides, before watching the video.

Position 1, White to move

Position 2, Black to move

Position 3, Black to move

EDIT: Can a mod turn "on" BBCode in this thread so the above images will appear? If not, you guys can still copy the "fen" portion of the link and paste it into your chess programs...

Nice video.

One remark, at 9:00 you proposed Bb6 and said black can't take on a3 because of f7, but in fact Ra2+ leads to mate.

I do not see a mate after Kh1.

Ooops, you are right only Kg1 is mate and Kh1 is draw by perpetual check.
