The important lesson about Chess Improvement!

An actual game between Christiansen 2525 v Narayanan 2573. The diagram is a potential position black could have achieved

This position is after 38. Qc7. Black is completely winning with 2 pawns up! It should not be that complicated. But this is where many young players do not spend enough time working on. Instead, many spend too much time in the opening.

The next position is after move 61. g4

So not only black did not manage to win, he actually lost! This is an important lesson that young players MUST spend more time working on chess endgame!
