IM John-Paul Wallace and GM Jesse Kraai and IM David Vigorito analyze endgames with pawns

 In king and pawn endings, an extra pawn is decisive in more than 90 percent of the cases  In endgames with pieces and pawns, an extra pawn is a winning advantage in 50 to 60 percent of the cases. It becomes more decisive if the stronger side has a positional advantage

The king plays an important role in the endgame Initiative is more important in the endgame than in other phases of the game. In rook endgames the initiative is usually worth at least a pawn 

Two connected passed pawns are very strong. If they reach their sixth rank they are generally as powerful as a rook

 ECO: N/A Content: 188 minutes of instruction and analysis in a series of 8 lectures.
