Score the Full Point!  Part 1

Score the Full Point! Part 1

In his first video for ChessKid, Coach Mike from New York has a great endgame form none other than Bobby Fischer! He is up a small amount of material, but you'll get a great explanation of how grandmasters are willing to trade into a winning king and pawn endgame. The power of the outside passed pawn is the key, and Fischer sees this about 10 moves in advance! That's how you score the full point. He should be world champion. Oh wait, he was!

In this edition of Your Games Analyzed, you'll see a chesskid willingly go into a king and pawn endgame in which he is probably losing. Never do this! The worst kind of losing ending is one without pieces. Instead the rook ending would have been OK. But the mistake puts him in good company. Would you believe that former World Champion Garry Kasparov's final game was the same mistake!? Watch and see both examples!

It's Endgame Extravaganza! The MusicCityMaster continues his show with more "in the end." Rooks are stronger than pawns right? Well...don't be so sure. You also see more complicated pawn endgames - sometimes it takes 15 minutes to analyze a position with only a few pawns on the board!

I hope you've learned the idea from Part 1 ChessKids because today Benzoo is back with a tougher ending. You'll have to use all of what you learned to figure out how he won this extremely close king-and-pawn endgame.

Endgames are all about passed pawns, so it's no surprise that the role of the pawn changes significantly in the endgame. However, even pawns that aren't "passed pawns" have to pay attention and change up their game plan once the endgame starts, or else risk being gobbled by the big pieces!
