Written by one of the world’s leading endgame experts, FIDE Senior Trainers IGM Efstratios Grivas, this is part of a series of FIDE-approved manuals on chess endgames.
A series of endgame books will take you step-by-step from king & pawn endgames all the way through to extremely complex and materially unbalanced endgames. Become an expert and learn to enjoy even more the “silent beauty” of the chess endgame.
It covers all the theoretical positions in Rook vs Pieces endgames, illustrating them with many different practical examples.
Certain endgames, such as rook endings, have been dealt with in chess literature in great depth and breadth — and rightly so. But unbalanced material configurations are often neglected as they are very difficult to deal with. Efstratios Grivas shows you the way over this deep dark ocean by giving typical positions and strategies to navigate the problems.
“Grivas fills a gap in the endgame literature and he helps you to understand the completely different strengths and weaknesses of the pieces.” – GM Dr. Karsten Muller.
