100 Endgames You Must Know: Vital Lessons For Every Chess Player

This is a new and improved edition of an all-time classic! The good news about endgames is that there are relatively few endings you should know by heart and that once you know these endings, that's it. Your knowledge never goes out of date!The bad news is that, all the same, the endgame technique of most players is deficient. Modern time-controls make matters worse: there is simply not enough time to delve deep into the position.Grandmaster Jesus de la Villa debunks the myth that endgame theory is complex and he teaches you to steer the game into a position you are familiar with. This book contains only those endgames that show up most frequently, are easy to learn and contain ideas that are useful in more difficult positions.Your performance will improve dramatically because this book brings you simple rules, detailed and lively explanations, many diagrams, clear summaries of the most important themes and dozens of tests.Review"If you really have no patience for endgames, at least read Jesus de la Villa's '100 Endgames You Must Know'." (Gary WaltersChess)"The greatest strength of the book: breaking things down into well-worded chunks of easily digestible information." (March Towers Chess Reviews)"There's not much to say about it - you just have to buy it and read it! De la Villa does a truly wonderful job of explaining useful endgames in a calm measured manner that is clear enough for any strength of player to understand while still being interesting for stronger players. If you've never read an endgame book before, this is the one you should start with." (Matthew Sadler, Grandmaster)"Former Women World Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk said she had really enjoyed De la Villa's '100 Endgames You Must Know' and had made flashcards out of the 100 positions. One side of the card had the position, the solution was written out on the reverse, and she quizzed herself until she knew all 100." (Elisabeth VicaryUSCF Online)"Though Nunn's comments are clear and to the point, I found De la Villa's discussions easier to digest." (Ted Greiner, British CorrespondenceChess Association, Comparing '100 Endgames' with John Nunn's 'Understanding Endgames')"De la Villa does the job quite well. He emphasizes the practical and prefers understanding to memorization." (John Donaldson, International Masterjeremysilman.com)"A clear exposition of the most important endgames, with exercises to test your knowledge." (British Chess Magazine)"The instructional explanations, the many diagrams, and the pleasant presentation make this endgame book an interesting publication for club players with a rating from 1600." (Max Euwe Centre, Amsterdam)"An excellent book to enhance your endgame skills." (Johan HutGooi-en Eemlander Daily Newspaper)"Every clubplayer should study this splendid book." (B.H. WildersNederlands Dagblad)
