OK- that cleared it up. The confusion came from the first video where you stated that you can play f5 if Black doesn't have access to e5. So in the games against the computer that I didn't win were because I was afraid to play f5 due to the available response, Ke5. Your 2nd video showed that even if Black gets to e5, you just move the K back and forth, exhausting pawn moves until he has to vacate e5- piece of cake!- I won easily first time out with the "new" plan. I feel kind of stupid not figuring that out myself but I'm still at the point in my chess understanding where K&P endings still prove confusing at times. Thanks very much for the clarification!! :)

I was laughing my ass off at mark 10:15, you were saying, up to that point, yadayada make a distant passed pawn and the your freaking passed pawn just simply disappears - computers cheating - priceless. I knew that Windows 7 had to have an agenda, now I know, world domination - it's started! He was even talking back at you, thought he might bring your mother into the jabs at some point.

Seriously, good series. I remember being a young lad and reading a book by Euwe claiming a win from the starting pawn structure from the Lopez Exchange. Won numerous games by just trading off everything and getting this structure. Very good tool to know. I call it a "V" for victory, what you call the traingle (I live for cliches), easy to remember, you make a V shape with your fingers and stick the pawns in that pattern.

Yeah actually that I could allow ...Ke5 I figured out in the video on the fly, I was like hey that's just like in the Ruy game with D.Solak where black had a king on f4 white pawn f3 and Ke2 (h2 vs h7) and white just went Ke2-f2 and exhausted the pawn moves.

Thanks Zibbit and Andrewrun- winning 100% now. I'm pretty sure that I would not have found that pawn sac idea without this video (or some future instructional material). To an uninformed "B" player, the idea of giving up an extra pawn on my majority side seems counter-intuitive, if not insane. :)
