Thanks for another great endgame lesson. This is really good to know, and sadly I kept wondering "why didn't you take the a pawn en passant?" until I realized that was stalemate. :-)

Nice video! I managed to find the correct answer, because I remembered that idea from a game Shirov - Aronian ( http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1437581 ).

Lev Alburt has a similar endgame in his Chess Training Pocket Book. I really like the way you show us the reason moves don't work. It helps to understand why the correct moves work.
