This special hardcover edition of 100 Endgames You Must Know celebrates the sale of more than 25,000 copies of this modern chess classic. The book’s success since its first publication in English in 2008 can be explained by its simplicity, its accessibility and its great instructive value.
If you’ve never read an endgame book before, this is the one you should start with, said book reviewer GM Matthew Sadler. ‘De la Villa does a truly wonderful job of explaining useful endgames in a calm and measured manner that is clear enough for any strength of player to understand while still being interesting for stronger players.’ Lots of chess players agree. On Amazon, more than 500 readers left a book review, and 84% awarded the book a maximum of five stars.
The book contains only those endgames that:
•show up frequently
•are easy to learn
•contain ideas that are useful in more difficult positions
Your performance will improve dramatically because this book offers you simple rules with detailed and lively explanations.
De la Villa has since written two other endgame manuals, expanding his teachings of the original ’100 Endgames’. For further study, you can now use The 100 Endgames You Must Know Workbook and 100 Endgame Patterns You Must Know.
