New and substantially expanded edition of a modern chess classic. By chance, in 2013 publisher New In Chess discovered a previously unnoticed and unpublished extra batch of endgame tactics collected by the legendary Dutch correspondence grandmaster Ger van Perlo (1932-2010).

 

More than 250 fresh examples have been added, making this fourth edition 25% BIGGER than its predecessors.

For casual players and club players.

Why is it that most amateur chess players love opening and middlegame tactics but hate endgames? Why do you usually look at only a couple of pages in any endgame theory book you see? 

Sit back, forget about theoretical endgames, and enjoy the entertainment of real life chess inEndgame Tactics!

There is no substitute for hard work in getting better at chess, as a wise grandmaster once said. But you always work harder at something you enjoy. Make the first step towards improving your endgame play (and beating more opponents) by learning to love the endgame.

Endgames are fun, and the examples from everyday practice in Endgame Tactics prove it.

• New (4th) and 25% expanded edition of a best- selling modern classic
• More than 1,300 Sparkling Tricks and Traps
• WINNER of the ECF Book of the Year Award

  • John Nunn's Chess Puzzle Book
    Test and Improve your Over-the-Board Decision Making
    Most chess puzzle books put you in an artificial situation: you are told a combination exists, what the theme is and what you are required to achieve. This one is different. In a real game, a player may sometimes need to find a combination. On the other hand he may have to reject a tactical idea and simply find a good positional move. His task is to find the right move, whatever it may be.

  • Sicilian - Paulsen
    The Paulsen System of the Sicilian challenges one of the common perceptions of the Sicilian Defense: That there is no safe way to play the Sicilian. The Paulsen System is generally regarded as one of the most solid, safe ways to play the Sicilian against 1.e4, while also giving plenty of opportunities for counter-attack. This flexible system can allow Black to arrange his pieces in several different ways. Taimanov shows us how to handle each variation that White can throw at you, and gives many fragments of important games.

  • Attacking Chess - The King's Indian - VOLUME 2
    The King's Indian remains a hugely popular opening at all levels of chess - unsurprising given the attacking opportunities it offers. In many of the ultra-sharp main lines, both sides can fight for the initiative. White frequently wins the queenside battle but this often turns out to be a Pyrrhic victory as Black wins the war by checkmating on the kingside!
