Practical Chess Endings

Product Code: B0257IS




This is an essential practical book, for all chess players, from one of the world's greatest grandmasters. Rather than attempting to cover every theoretical possible endgame position, Paul Keres deals with the basic types of position into which all other endgames will eventually be resolved. He examines these in great detail and, in so doing, reveals the fundamental principles of the endgame and the main ideas for each player.


It is not by memorizing moves but by understanding the basic positions that a player, of whatever rating, will most improve his endgame play. For this reason, Keres does not simply point out the best move; rather he explains the positions in such a way that the reader's understanding will lead, almost automatically, to the best move.


Paul Keres was one of the greatest chess players of all time. From 1937 to 1965 he was a serious contender for the World Championship title. John Littlewood, the translator of this book, was a leading British player.
