CHESS ENDGAMES - Rook Against Knight - Karsten Mueller - VOLUME 12

Product Description

 

The more reduced the material on the board is the more important it is to be able to estimate the potential of the pieces correctly. In endgames with asymmetrical material this is absolutely crucial. The new 12th DVD in Karsten Müller‘s popular series continues the journey started with the 11th to discuss endgames with an uneven material balance. This time the endgame expert from Hamburg analyses the following constellations: 

• rook against knight 
• rook and knight against two knights 
• two rooks against rook and knight 
• rook against bishop and knight
• rook and bishop against bishop and knight 
• rook against two knights 
 
The very important aspects "coordination" and "harmony of the pieces" can be studied well in those chess endgames and help to improve the practical play. Especially the geometry of the knight can be analysed in great detail. This avoids knight forks not only in the endgame as long as you remain in the "knight check shadow". The international acclaimed endgame expert looks at the winning motifs of the side with the rook like giving back the exchange, opening lines and restricting the knight with many well chosen examples. Of course the question of the right exchange also plays a vital role, when converting the advantage. 
 
Video running time: 5 hours 38 min. (English)
 
The grandmaster from Hamburg Dr. Karsten Mueller has been playing in the top division of the Bundesliga for the Hamburg Chess Club since 1988 and in 1996 and 1997 he came in third in the German Championship. An internationally recognized expert on the endgame, he writes the Endgame Column for ChessBase Magazine and the Endgame Corner on ChessCafe.com.
