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.
