    Book DescriptionMost players tend to neglect the endgame, many even dodge the endgame by taking extreme risks in the middlegame, simply because they feel uncertain about the final phase. But time limits have shortened, and the endgame has to be played fast. A solid basic knowledge is vital. There are, contrary to what most amateurs believe, relatively few endgames one must know. Here the 100 endgames are presented that show up most frequently in practice are easy to learn and contain ideas and concepts useful in more difficult positions. Your performance will improve dramatically because this book brings you:

    * simple rules
    * guiding ideas at the beginning of each chapter

    * many diagrams
    * clear summaries of the most important themes
    * recommended exercises that will help you understand the material
