Description / CLEARANCE - Willhelm Steinitz - 1836-1900
This is the first volume of a proposed series of booklets dealing with endgames played by world champions. If it is met with a favoriable response other volumes will follow monthly.
Everyone talks about the importance of studying the endgame but no one likes to do it. Most endgame books are imposing tomes that hold little promise of any enjoyment. These small, lightweight booklets are full of diagrams, and contain a workable number of examples. These booklets are not set up to be your life's work.
Work with the examples with or without a chess board. Diagrams are frequently placed, without a board have a try at stretching your powers of visualization. With reduced pieces endgames are perfect for this type of exersice. The examples picked are by no means "perfect" performances by the players. But, they are better examples of endgame play than most regular tournament players will produce.
Just look at the examples, play over them, think about them, ask yourself questions, expose your mind to the endgames of the champions. With luck a little just might rub-off.
