GM Misa Pap - The Importance of Small Tactics in Endgames - Vd1: Mating Attacks in the Endgame

Opening: D64, E16, B51: QGD: Orthodox Defence - Rubinstein Attack (with Rc1), Queen's Indian: Capablanca Variation, Sicilian: Canal–Sokolsky Attack

Player(s): Alekhine, Yates, Capablanca, Marshall, Boleslavsky, Petrosian

We all know the importance of good endgame techniques. The topic of this series is small tactical operations in endgames; it is logical to start with, of course, mating attacks.
Of course, this is not very often seen in endgames, as in middlegames, but still, you need to use such chances if it happens in the game.
Also, it doesn't mean that such an attack has to end with a mate. Not at all. Sometimes, as in a middlegame, you can organize a strong attack and force your opponent on significant material and/or positional concessions, which would leave you in a winning or superior position.
The examples in this video will manage to illustrate to you how this works in practice.
