    This end-game is exactly how I beat Stockfish level 5 on Lichess. That is, almost every win that I get follows this same pattern. (I always play white.) Black gets obsessed with gobbling up undefended pawns that are of no immediate significance while I just push my passed pawn. By the time it realizes it needs to stop me from queening, it's too late. That's a pretty huge blind spot for Stockfish. Anyone know what the chess rating of level 5 is?

    Random argument: Wouldn't chess be better if both players always lost rating points for draws? Constant draws ruin the highest level of chess for me. The best players should be the ones who win the most. Not the ones who win once in a full moon and draw the rest of the month.

    Hi Agadmator, I would like for you to anylize this game I feel it is a very well played game by me. Black had resigned on the thirteenth move. Although of course I am no grandmaster or famous chess player I feel it would be entertaining to watch and fun to examine. Here is the link to the game (It was played on chess.com) www.chess.com/game/live/5896336075 And anyone else who would like to see the game, feel free to do so. Thank you, Michael

Cheese - Halogen from the qualification league, there was a very interesting endgame imbalance, but it was an endgame stockfish 12 considered drawn, until one of the engines made a game-losing blunder tcec-chess.com/#div=ql&game=5&season=20 2. ChessFighter - FabChess from league 4, another interesting endgame imbalance that was also drawn, but earlier in the game, white had a position that stockfish 12 considered to be winning despite being down significant material and then blundered it away tcec-chess.com/#div=l4&game=20&season=20 3.

    Excellent game and endgame technique especially by Ding here. Good try nonetheless by Giri (even with helping Liren by not going Kf8 there, but we're only human)! It really helps (brilliancy) when that happens! I had a play Magnus game I dubbed Last Nail in the Coffin in a tweet I shared that game in, where I had trapped his King and Magnus allowed a pawn capture right after too aiming my pawn right into the mating square, and just before he.Queened another pawn too! I think he was 8 and 1/2 there! Proud of that work of art! Gg and coverage. Thx.
