In Roman's Forum Vol 29: Mastering The Endgame Forum Series Part 1, Grandmaster Roman Dzindzichashvili teaches the important aspects of elementary pawn endgames including the opposition, and positions with pawn breakthroughs, outside passed pawns, potential outside passed pawns, and protected passed pawns.
In this lecture Roman discusses the general principles of play in bishop endgames including bishops of opposite color endings. Pounding a Material Advantage
GM Dzindzichashvili presents the important theoretical positions that arise in endgames where one side has a material advantage, for example: Q v R; R v B; R v N; R v P; B + RP ("wrong-colored" queening square); N v P; and other material imbalances where zugzwang or stalemate (or avoidance of stalemate) are important factors.

Roman examines the tactical aspects of certain pawn endgames - ones that do not adhere to simple generalizations but instead involve accurate calculation in their resolution. Examples include the Reti Maneuver, stalemate themes, zugzwangs, gain and loss of tempo, relative king activity.
Roman also examines correct technique and calculation in the endgame using examples from grandmaster play. Examples include: R + P endgames; K + P endgames; bishop of opposite color endings; and unbalanced positions where concrete calculation and formulation of a winning plan is paramount.

    Well, these endgame videos helped me score one win and one draw against International Masters in technical endgames where previously I didn't have a clue. I own all of Roman's endgame DVDs and still learn much from watching them. If you wish to read a truly fair and balanced review of Roman's DVDs, read <a rel='nofollow' href="">my review of DVD 33</a> in this series.

    I like this video better than Roman's Comprehensive Endgame which i also have. the Pummeling Success in unbalanced endgames is named incorrectly, It boils down to errors made in the endgame by the side with material advantage. So all that says is to wait till your opponet makes and error in the endgame to win? There are no plans that he gives of how to play if you are down a knight or bishop in the segment at all. I think they go too far with terms weapon, Pounding, pulverizing, storm slash shattering...i say overkill. But it helps Roman with sales i guess.
