How many times have we found ourselves staring at the board, with an apparently easy position, without having the faintest idea of how to proceed? We know that the win is there, but it's impossible to come up with the right idea, probably only for we don't know the technique to pull out the win. And here is YOUR video-series, then! Joel makes you understand how to tackle a position, with his incredible and super-clear way to explain chess ideas and concepts. Don't miss this new, exciting, and useful feat by GM Joel Benjamin! Watch the videos to get your game one of five notches up.

This week, we return to king and pawn endgames to hammer home the most important principle about pawn endings - timing. The natural inclination for amateurs is to move their king to the most active square and to expect the opponent to do the same. But often it is necessary to take an indirect path, or play to a waiting square to get where you want to go at the right time.
