Pawn endings: the importance of a tempo

Pawn endings: the importance of a tempo

I posted a link to yesterday's blog post on the Facebook group Chicago Area Chess (you should join if you already haven't) and I asked local instructors how they teach these basic (and not-so-basic) pawn endings. I was honored to get a reply from Grandmaster Mesgen Amanov. I will steal Mesgen's reply for today's post and continue with key squares tomorrow.

Great article Bill,
At the end you ask, "How do you teach these endgames to your students"?
