|I did not watch all of the tape. I watched the first three
examples. I feel that this tape would be good for those who have never taken any
time to work on their endgame fundamentals. It is by no means a thorough or
methodical approach. It does however touch upon a variety of types of positions.
If you have ever read any book on basic endgame technique, this tape will probably not be of any value to you.
