GM Davorin Kuljasevic’s “Develop Your Counter-intuitive Thinking!” - Endgame Ideas

Opening: B63, B51, B12: Sicilian: Richter-Rauzer Attack, Sicilian: Canal-Sokolsky (Nimzovich-Rossolimo - Moscow) attack, Caro-Kann defense

Player(s): Bronstein, Botvinnik, Zelcic, Bosiocic, Huschenbeth, Buhmann

Endgames contain many fascinating ideas that can often seem counter-intuitive: underpromotion, triangulation, zugzwang, umbrella, just to name a few. In fact, due to fewer pieces on the board, unusual ideas become even clearer in the endgame compared to the earlier stages of the game. Such ideas are not only nice to see, but also often have a decisive effect. For example, the idea of specific geometry of the chessboard that we will see in two examples in this video is something that is not discussed in many endgame manuals, but it is extremely important for the understanding of endgames and chess in general. In this video, we will see 5 instructive examples of counter-intuitive endgame ideas. Some of them will be from endgame studies, while others are from tournament games.
