In this video, I show you the elementary techniques in king and pawn against king endgames. An important topic in these pawn endgames is opposition which refers to both kings opposing each other. Whoever has to leave this setup, loses the opposition. This video is part of my new series “Chess Endgame Basics” in which I show you elementary endgame positions and how to handle them correctly. The endgame is an important part of the chess game and the right knowledge can often make the difference between losing and drawing or drawing and winning. Enjoy watching!
