The more reduced the material, the more important it is to correctly assess the potential of your own and the enemy pieces. This is particularly true in endgames with unbalanced material. This DVD begins with a discussion of asymmetrical material balances, including rook against bishop, rook and knight against two bishops, two rooks against rook and bishop, queen and rook against queen and bishop, rook and knight against bishop and knight and rook against two bishops. These endgames allow one to study the important characteristics coordination and harmony of the pieces in detail and lead to interesting practical insights. For instance, Muller shows that rook and knight are markedly superior to bishop knight whereas the two bishops cope much better. With the help of a large number of examples the internationally renowned endgame expert explains the pertinent winning motifs of the side with the rook, such as returning the exchange, opening lines for the rook and restricting the bishop. Another factor that is of great importance in converting ones advantage is the question when and when not to exchange. Video running time: 8 hours 26 min.
