More Details

Solving endgame studies has become a major working tool in modern chess training combining the instructive with the enjoyable. Studies are highly recommended for refining calculating and tactical skills, deepening endgame understanding, as well as improving creativity and out of the box thinking. The Anthology of Miniature Endgame Studies is the biggest selection of composed endings with up to seven pieces on the board, created by the world’s best composers throughout the past 150 years. The carefully selected studies are categorized into thematic chapters. The game-like positions highlight the power and typical qualities of each piece alone and in collaboration with other pieces. From the foreword by GM Jan Timman: “Endgame studies are in fact an important factor in becoming a strong player. It is significant that both Garry Kasparov and Magnus Carlsen have a keen interest in endgame studies. It is praiseworthy that Chess Informant was ready to publish this important work. Afek is arguably the most qualified person to write it.”
