Lesson-1: How to evaluate an endgame
This is the starting point of our course about understanding better practical endgames. I think it would be good to start with testing your abilities in evaluating an endgame.
Lesson-2: The principle of two weaknesses (karpovs classics)
. This lesson will be dedicated to the principle of two weaknesses with two different examples.
Lesson-3: Pawn structure (weaknesses)
In this lesson we are going to talk about pawn structure, more specifically pawn weaknesses.
In the endgame, one of the most important aspects, maybe besides piece’s activity, is the pawn structure –which side has better or weaker pawns.
Lesson-4: Space advantage
In this lesson we are going to see some position from two games. One is a very classical game between Emanuel Lasker and José Raúl Capablanca, two former world champions, in 1914. The second is from a more recent game between Anish Giri with the white pieces and Johan Sebastian Christiansen.
Lesson-5: King activity
In this lesson, we are going to talk about the king’s activity and king’s marches in the endgame. So, as we have seen before, the king is the most important piece in the endgame and it’s very important to activate it as much as possible.
Lesson-6: Pawn majority
In this lesson, Asaf will show you some plans that you can use when having a queenside pawn majority.
