Well, as promised I've been doing some work on endgames. Specifically rook endings.
So yesterday I worked though a few pages of Dvoretsky & Yusupov's Secrets of Endgame Technique and then I watched about an hour and a half of Karsten Muller's Rook Endings DVD (No. 8 in his series. Not the No. 2 one...)
I did realize last night at the chess club that just watching a DVD and reading a book isn't what I should be doing. I should be setting up those positions in Fritz and playing them. What good is theoretical knowledge without practical application?
And how better to train than to have a training partner that never blunders? I can recreate the halcyon days of the Pioneer Palace right here in the comforts of my own home!
So I am going to re-read some of the R v R+2P material and then set up those positions today.
But first I have to go to the dentist...blah.
