      Van Perlo's Endgame Tactics - 4TH EDITION
      A Comprehensive Guide to the Sunny Side of Chess Endgames
      Catalog Code: B0053NIC

      ENDGAME TACTICS is an affordable guide that reduces the psychological burden of endgame instruction by showing that endgames are actually quite enjoyable because of the tactics! There is no substitute for hard work in getting better at chess, but the fact of the matter is that we always work harder at something we love. By enjoying the entertainment of real life endgame tactics, and (at least for the moment) forgetting about theoretical positions that seem distant from everyday practice, the amateur player learns to love the endgame.

      This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches. The epic 1984/85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted "without result" by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes.

Great chess contests have often had resonances extending beyond the 64 squares. The Fischer v Spassky match was played during the Cold War with both champions being perceived as the finest products of their respective ideologies.
