The third part of the chess endgame series tackles queen endings, rook against minor pieces, queen against rook, and queen against two rooks.
Queen endings are not nearly as mysterious as they appear at first sight. Knowing a few rules of thumb and principles will make things very much easier for you.
In the case of rook versus knight or bishop, you should not only know how to draw a pawnless endgame but also when a fortress can be set up and when not.
Something similar is the case for queen against rook, except of course that when there are no pawns the queen wins against the rook.
In the duel against two rooks, further aspects come into play such as the coordination of the rooks.
Those who have always found studying chess endgames with textbooks too dry and tedious will enjoy this DVD with its comfortable training system and benefit enormously – in brilliant endgames at the actual board.
