A fascinating and instructive endgame. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, and that it teaches you something. Feel free to ask if you have any questions! :)

Thanks! I played through 35 of his endings this week--some lightly and some deeply--and while they haven't taught me any new techniques, I'm getting a much more intuitive feel for what an ending is, how to get ready for it, and when is the right moment to apply each general rule.

What astonishes me is how every move he makes shows a near-perfect understanding of the position, and endgame technique, and strategy.
