Those chessvideo's are great! You can learn a new opening in 2 days and play it with confidence. Today I played against the clubchampion (2140).
I played a new system against the Caro Kan, which he always uses with black. I had spent only two evenings at this new opening. I was better in the opening, in the middlegame and in the endgame. My tactical meditation seems to bear fruits. He admitted that I should have won this game, but in mutual time trouble I blundered an important pawn away and lost. You can find the game here.
The point is, I have done a lot of endgame exercises, but I don't have standard plans. While learning endgames I focussed on the details but I have no overview. Endgames are almost always played in time trouble. So there is no time to develop plans, I must have standard plans.
So the study activity for the coming months are evident:
Next to meditation on Polgars brick I will try to develop standard endgame plans.
