Learn the Lucena Position (The Shield) – Beginner to Chess Master #19

This is video #19 from the “Beginner to Chess Master” playlist. Rook and pawn endgames are the most popular type of endgames in chess. Of them, one of the most frequent types to arise in practice is known as the “Lucena Position”, or what many, myself not included, call “The Bridge”. Illustrated is a universal method to winning a key position type where the stronger side has an extra pawn and the king in front of it. Do you know what approach you can apply to the non-rook pawns that will lead you to success? Are you familiar with what I’m choosing to call a Shield?

Beginner to Chess Master Playlist:

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
