With Svitlana Demchenko and Arne Kaehler
Svitlana Demchenko is a 17-year-old, Canadian WIM, and chess coach. Here and now, she will teach us plenty of smart moves on the board, ranging from tactics, strategies, openings, and anything else chess related. In the process, I’m happy to be available as a student at club player level, and pester the Women’s International Master with questions. Anyone who wants to strengthen their chess skills is welcome to watch, and actively replay the positions from the video, on our chessboard.
No diagrams are needed for this episode, but we highly recommend to check out Karsten Mueller’s Endgame Courses. Especially, part two conquers all the rook endgames, which every person who enjoys chess has to learn.
With this second volume of his endgame training series, grandmaster and endgame expert Dr Karsten Mueller continues to lay the solid foundations for the last phase of the game.
Part II is dedicated exclusively to rook endgames: rook versus pawn, rook and pawn versus rook, rook and rook pawn versus rook, rook and two connected pawns versus rook.
Special thanks to our ginger “Roger”, who cheered in the background for no particular reason, other than being a cat.
