Page of 1. Filtered by:. I looked at the Jerry Silman's complete guide to the end game. It sounds good but I don't know much about it to be honest. Anyone have any other suggestions? Tags: None. If you're looking for a general endgame book, Silman's seems to be the best, from what I've seen. I like the way it's organized, and his writing style makes it easy to read. I know there are more specialized endgame books, but I'm still trying to master the basics in that one before moving up to those. Always play the moves you want to play unless you see a genuine tactical drawback.

Practical Rook Endings by Mednis is a very nice little book. Emm's Survival Guide to Rook Endings is also a good one. Crash lists a lot of good ones. For the Smyslov book, it is written by Smyslov and Levenfish.

So make sure to search on both names if you are looking for it. I believe it is also called Practical Rook Endings. These days there are a lot of wonderful books on the endgame. Enough to keep a person seriously studying for a very long time. Originally posted by snits View Post. Ah, I missed that. I have heard good things about them, but they are on the to-read list so far. I will have to check out Minev's book.
The Emms book is quite good and something that I will gradually be absorbing over the next few weeks though I tend to do extended reading only when I have to take my nephew to soccer practice. Unfortunately, the forums are currently down. When they get back up I will post some of the recommendations over here. This makes them particularly useful to study for practical players as well as study fans.
Sergei Tkachenko, a member of the Ukrainian team that won the 5th World Chess Composition Tournament in and which came second in , , , and , has selected his favorite Tigran Gorgiev studies, revising some of them and providing explanations suitable for less experienced solvers.

There are no more than six moves in most solutions, so experienced chess players can analyze the positions directly from the diagrams. This second book focuses on endgames. 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. Sergei Tkachenko, a member of the Ukrainian team that won the 5th World Chess Composition Tournament in and which came second in , , , and , has collected studies whose common theme is that white ends up with just one knight in the finale, yet manages to win or draw.
In the first book we discussed basic positions and methods for playing both simple and complicated rook endings. Now, in this book, we will discuss typical positions — which means positions that frequently appear in practical play. Knowledge of such positions and the methods of handling them is a third key element of correct play in rook endgames. 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.
Rook endings are the most frequently seen among all endgames. Sergei Tkachenko, a member of the Ukrainian team that won the 5th World Chess Composition Tournament in and which came second in , , , and , has collected studies whose common theme is that white ends up with just one rook in the finale, yet manages to win or draw. He reviews them in chronological order to show how Magnus developed his skills. His technique and his choices are being explained in a manner that is easy to understand for club players. He has composed nearly studies and he has won the individual chess composition world championship three times: in , and The selection is quite varied — from elegant short studies with six moves to romantic grotesques with many pieces on board and over 30 moves to the solution.
Yet what all of these studies have in common is spectacular play by both sides. And watch out: they are tough! You may buy this collection of studies to test your endgame tactical abilities, to improve your endgame understanding, or simply to appreciate chess in all its beauty. Endgames often give rise to the most difficult and pivotal moments of a chess game. This book focuses on patterns based on material left on the board — bishops of opposite color and rooks. It explains the ideas of bishop endgames alone, and then shows how the strategy changes when rooks are also present on the board.
Going through the instructive examples and numerous exercises you will see all the important aspects of the piece exchange in the endgame, and enrich your knowledge and understanding of the final stage of the chess game. Trying to solve the positions, you will certainly improve your decision-making ability and analyzing skills. Sergei Tkachenko, a member of the Ukrainian team that won the 5th World Chess Composition Tournament in and which came second in , , , and , has collected studies whose common theme is that white ends up with just one pawn in the finale, yet manages to win or draw.
