    CHESS ENDGAMES - Rook Endgames - Karsten Muller - VOLUME 2

    Product Code: WIN0052CB

    Description

    Endgame theory forms the basis for chess. This becomes painfully clear as soon as a player has reached a clearly won endgame, yet must finally content himself with a draw because he lacks the necessary know-how to finish the game off successfully. Does this sound familiar Then avoid such accidents and make endgames your strength by building up a solid endgame technique. With this second volume of his endgame training series, grandmaster and endgame expert GM Dr Karsten Mueller from Hamburg continues to lay the solid foundations for the last phase of the game. In the first CD in this series, which dealt with basic endgames from giving mate with the queen to the basics of pawn endgames, the second CD in the series is devoted exclusively to rook endgames: rook versus pawn, rook and pawn versus rook, rook and rook pawn versus rook, rook and two connected pawns versus rook. Those who have always found studying endgames with chess textbooks too dry and tedious will enjoy this DVD with its comfortable training system and benefit enormously in brilliant endgames at the actual board.

    Complete video running time: 5 hours.

    Author: Since 1988 grandmaster Dr. Karsten Mueller from Hamburg has played for the Hamburger Schachklub in the Bundesliga and in 1996 and 1997 he finished third in the German Championship. As an internationally renowned endgame expert he is the author of the endgame column in ChessBase Magazine and a regular monthly columnist for ChessCafe.com, where his column Endgame Corner appears. His book Fundamental Chess Endings, which he co-authored with Frank Lamprecht and which was published in 2001 by Gambit, is already considered to be a modern classic.
