Nowadays, chess players spend almost all their free time preparing openings, and rarely spend the time necessary to perfect the vitally important technique of calculating. Regular training in solving and playing out endgames studies is a good recipe for eliminating that shortcoming.This training is directed at developing resourcefulness, fantasy, in chess, these qualities are called combinative acuity, and the readiness to sacrifice material, in pursuit of the goal which is of course winning!How do we develop good habits of winning endgame play? There are lots of manuals but this may be the first in which a famous practical player, a trainer with a worldrenowned name, and a study composer who has earned the title of International Grandmaster of Composition, share their views in one and the same book. Softback, 216 pages. Dimensions 160 x 228 x 12mm 299g
