Chessboard Magic

A Collection of 160 Brilliant Chess Endings

Product Code: B0291IS

Alternative Views:


To the chessplayer, composed endings are an inexhaustible source of entertainment-and this book contains 160 of the most beautiful, most brilliant endings ever composed. These compositions are remarkable enough to justify the title of the volume - Cbessboard Magic! The positions are not arranged by theme, or composers, or alphabetically. The arrangement is haphazard - and purposely so, for your enjoyment. Each ending is meant to give you a fresh surprise. Difficult positions with countless variations have not been included, as this book is meant for pure enjoyment! Not drudgery. Only those endings which display rich originality have been selected. You may want to solve the endings (it is easy enough to cover up the solutions which are right underneath each ending, on the same page) but it is just as much fun to playing the solutions, as the ideas will prove startling enough. This book not only has a happy ending - it has 160 of them!
