    The king is the most valuable piece on the chessboard, yet many players - especially at club level - give little thought to where His Majesty should reside. This wide-ranging survey explains the dangers with leaving the King in the center, and the possible drawbacks to castling too early or on the wrong side.

    Catalog Code: E-B0121EM

    The implication from the author is that the task of converting a typically winning position into a full point or converting a drawing position into half-a-point is relatively straightforward. However, as all of us practical players realise, it's not always a simple as this, and many hard-earned points are wasted through 'a lack of technique'. In this valuable book, Jacob Aagaard aims to solve this perennial problem. He arms the reader with several endgame weapons that every strong technical player has in his toolbox.
