This book is best worked through as a course of study, so that the underlying ideas are absorbed and a sound positional judgment is acquired it is at first not necessary to understand every nuance, far less to try to remember the more difficult variations; indeed one might pass over the sub-variations at first reading.

    Domination in 2,545 Endgame Studies
    Catalog Code: B0050IS

    Ghenrikh M. Kasparyan (1910-1995) is considered to have been without doubt the greatest composer and analyst of chess endgame studies ever. He was so great that when a great new chess star named Kasparyan appeared on the scene, the Soviet authorities decided to change the name of the second Kasparyan to Kasparov to avoid confusion. In this book, his master work, Kasparyan first classifies endgame studies into the analytic as opposed to artistic. Analytic studies are those likely to arise in an actual game.

    What is new about the present book is that it only examines an exact position. Such positions form the skeleton of all works on the endgame already published, but no one of these authors is able to resist the temptation to proceed further, from the simple to the complicated. So they deal with problematic positions, where what is required of a player is not only exact knowledge, but also stamina, fighting, spirit, will–to–win and so on. Thus you have here a collection of the 600 most standard (exact) endgame positions.
