Written by 3 of the world-leading endgame experts, FIDE Senior Trainers IGM Mikhalchishin, IGM Grivas, and IGM Balogh, this is part of a series of FIDE-approved manuals on chess endgames.
A total of 14 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.
In this volume, you will learn how to master typical rook endgames. Rook endgames are important endgames that we see frequently in practical games.
Every player must know how to deal with these situations on the board, for both sides, so knowledge of basic positions and methods of handling complicated
endgames are key. The mistakes of the top players are also extremely instructive and serve as great lessons for improvement in the endgame.
Topics such as rook vs a passed pawn and knight and pawn vs rook are covered – crucial endgames you must be comfortable with if you want to keep improving your chess. In Chapters 6 and 7, the authors take a look at endgames that have been played out in famous games by great players in history, for example Judit Polgar against Boris Spassky.
