Practical Chess Endgames – Capablanca-Janowsky 1911

A video on a practical endgame, discussed by NM Dan Heisman. Randomly chose from “Capablanca’s Best Endgames” by Chernev Game 7: Capablanca-Janowsky San Sebastian 1911. Most endgames are not “book” positions (GM Soltis calls these “exact endgames”) but rather positions with fewer pieces on the board, but unique to that game (at least until the very late endgame). Dan goes over the game with help from Stockfish 11 and discusses general strategies on how to improve endgame play.
