Endgame training is incredibly important for beginner chess players, yet often ignored. Many beginners focus exclusively on openings and tactics, leaving out a crucial element for success – endgame technique.

After all, if you can play a great opening and middlegame and emerge with a strong advantage in the endgame – you still have to actually win the game!

In ¨Winning Chess Endgames for Beginners¨, FIDE Master William Stewart introduces and explains fundamental endgame training examples on the following topics: Basic Checkmates, Basic King and Pawn Endgames, Typical Pawn Structures and Tricks, Knight Endings, and Bishop Endings.

¨Winning Chess Endgames for Beginners¨ is a chess DVD targeted at beginner and intermediate players that features over 4 hours of all-star content. If you are looking to learn the basics of chess endgame play and want to improve your chess endgame technique, this is the chess DVD for you!

This DVD is 5 hours long and starts off with the most basic checkmates and continues on into more intermediate and advanced concepts. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced player, this DVD will help improve your endgame!

Bonus! 2 New Chapters Added!

I’ve added 2 more chapters giving a more detailed look at Rook Endings and those tricky Bishop vs Knight Endgames. The DVD now totals over 5 hours long making it one of the most comprehensive and newest endgame DVDs on the market.

    Mr Stewart,

    I just had to drop you a note that the purchase of your endgame video was, in my opinion, the best investment in chess that I have made in years. Your teaching style I find not only informative but very entertaining. I have gone over and over your video and begin to see what you are teaching. Chess is my outlet for forgetting my challenges in life, and with your instruction that makes this journey in chess very fulfilling.

    Again thanks for your efforts in chess.

    This is the first chess DVD I have ever bought and have been playing again for about 2 years… I have always been apprehensive about buying a chess DVD because I see great quality clips on youtube – what am I getting on the DVD? Well when I had watched all 3 disks I can definitely say I am 100% pleased and happy with my choice!

    As a self-confessed endgame addict, this DVD series gave me my fix, and then some! Will demonstrates excellent use of arrows on the board when explaining the simple all-the-way to the complex positions, everything was very easy to understand, I’m currently deciding on my next purchase from Will’s collection 🙂

    Until today I learned something from every endgame course – this one is no exception. Of course you a lot of material is only repetition but I got a lot from the very good material about pawn endgames – and nothing about endgames you really understand is useless 🙂

    My chess coach recommended this video and I did pick up useful info, however, I found this to be a bit over my head. Now, I would find this useful. Although Silman’s endgame book is my personal favorite, I still liked the interactive feel of this video. Arrows are really nice and are the benefit of watching videos from 80/20 tactics and other modern chess production agencies. You will get coverage on endgames from Knights vs Pawns or Knights vs Bishops, the latter I find are pretty common, and Rook endgames, also pretty common. I personally prefer the Silman book so I would send you to check that out, but if you like Will Stewart his is a great endgame video.
