DIGITAL PRODUCT - May Masterclass - Rook vs Minor Piece in the Endgame

Endgames in which one of the players has an extra exchange are fairly common in practice. Playing such positions is very challenging both theoretically and practically speaking. The reason is that our general understanding should be backed up with a precise knowledge of the key theoretical positions. The current masterclass is designed to provide a GM understanding of this kind of endgames. We are convinced that this knowledge will help you to win many additional tournament and ELO points.
