      Smith: "Have you studied Volume 1 by Silman? If you have not, you are wasting your time and my time. You must have the basics he covers. Basics are everything. Basics are to build on. The difference between strong endgame players and weak ones is not rating strength, but rather a lack of basic knowledge, and maybe even a lack of will and perseverance. This 2nd and final volume will take you to endgame Master strength. Take your board and men and set up each of the 275 positions and work through every move. I explain each White and each Black move so you know what is happening from each side of the board. As White with the advantage you must learn how to win a won position, and as Black with a bad position, you must learn to put up a fight - such a fight to give you a chance to draw or even win. I teach you this endgame technique in 298 pages." Learn More

      Our Price: $29.95

      Ghenrikh M. Kasparyan (1910-1995) is considered to have been without doubt the greatest composer and analyst of chess endgame studies ever. He was so great that when a great new chess star named Kasparyan appeared on the scene, the Soviet authorities decided to change the name of the second Kasparyan to Kasparov to avoid confusion. In this book, his master work, Kasparyan first classifies endgame studies into the analytic as opposed to artistic. Analytic studies are those likely to arise in an actual game.
