    Reinfeld on the Endgame

    $14.95
    Reinfeld on the Endgame is a very fine specialty book about several aspects of endgames.

This skill is often known as winning technique, and a good explanation of how it is done is invaluable. Here we get that explanation by one of the most prolific chess writers of the twentieth century. Learn More
