Alternative Views:


GM Bobby Fischer and the 11th world chess champion was known for excellent endgame technique. IM Jerey Silman listed Fischer as one of the five best endgame players along with Lasker, Rubinstein, Capablanca and Smyslov.  Silman called Fischer a "master of bishop endings".

In this DVD Jesse shows us examples of the endgame he is so well known for. The endgame consists of a rook, bishop and pawns against a rook, knight and pawns and has sometimes been called the "Fischer Endgame". Named because of three instructive wins by Fischer (with the bishop) in 1970 and 1971 over Mark Taimanov. One of the games was the 1970 Interzonal the other two were in their 1971 quarter-final candidates match.
