That video was excellent. I used to do this endgame problems with Personal Chess Trainer and eventually figured it out but this video was a great refresher and I wish I had it back then.

Good work 5 pawns.

Very nicely done! No problems with your English and you did a great job of tying your basic idea to some excellent examples. The Reti study is the Platonic form of the idea, and the other two examples occur every day. Keep up the good work and congratulations on winning the contest!

This was very interesting. I'll keep this video in mind the next time I play a pawn ending. I'll go and see if I can find the other video in this series.

Excellent video. Where is Nr 2?

Be forewarned Svent, I am "stealing" these fine examples to show to my chess students :)

Great video - well presented - accent strong but English good - from a New Zealand English speaker!

I have known this Reti study etc for years - but just today I was looking at Znosko-Borovski's Endgame book and he starts with this very theme of the geometry of the chess board -and even though I knew most of these ideas - one cant have them refreshed enough: no matter how strong one is, as these ideas recur in OTB chess (or other, correspondence and blitz) when all often doesn't seem so easy.

Also these basic concepts underlie the more complex ones.

i could tell what you would do from the best example. you go to your pawn and he queens and since it is a bishop pawn it is a draw be cause white has the corner trick
