Chess Calculation Training: Volume 2, Endgames

Chess Calculation Training: Volume 2, Endgames

Publisher:Thinkers Publishing

Author:Romain Edouard

Price:  **$19.99

Contents:270 pages

Release Date: November 2017

Book Description:This second book focuses on endgames. There are a lot of things to learn “by heart” about them — but they are often difficult to apply at the board, unless you get exactly the same position as you studied. This is why I believe it is an interesting approach to present an endgames book as a series of exercises, with instructive but practical positions.

Bishop Endgames: Do Opposites Attract?

Rook and Knight Endgames

Publisher:Independent

Author:Roman Jiganchine

Price:  **$3.99

Contents:69 pages

Release Date: November 2017

Book Description:he idea behind this series is the approach that Nimzowitsch used to call “a radioactive method” – selecting a rather narrow topic, and by learning a lot about it, understand chess much better in general. This book looks at endings with rook + knight Vs. rook + knight. This material balance occurs quite frequently in tournaments, and some classical ideas and endgames have become well-known. Nonetheless, there is some lack of discussion of this topic in chess literature. The book covers both the strategic themes, and gives the reader a chance to practice their tactical skills.

Rook Endgames: Study Guide

Rook Endgames: Study Guide

Publisher:Independent

Author:Roman Jiganchine

Price:  **$4.99

Contents:80 pages

Release Date: November 2017

Book Description:This book is dedicated to rook endgames, but the goal is to provide a more broad illustration for how a chess player should go about studying any type of endgame. The steps that I found effective and that a lot of other chess players and coaches recommend are as follows:
-Identify and understand most common general principles guiding a specific type of endgames
-Find a few important theoretical positions that should be well studied and memorized
-Study your own games related to this type of endgames
