Perfecting Endgame Technique with Rubinstein by USCF Expert Ryan Murphy uses the games of Akiba Rubinstein to showcase important concepts for converting better or won endings.
In this course, Ryan uses instructive examples of Rubinstein to illustrate the importance of creating weaknesses, restricting the opponent's pieces, and thinking schematically to bring home the full point. The course shows examples of strong technique in rook endings, endings where one side has the bishop pair, and other complex endings.
The course is designed for beginner and intermediate level players (Elo 1000-1500), but can be useful for stronger players too. This course includes four video lessons with a total run time of 1 hour and 40 minutes that are accompanied by four PGN files related to the lessons as well as bonus practice exercises to help you test what you've learned.
