The endgame is the most complicated area of chess. In his book GM Rozentalis looks at some of the most important questions: the connection between the opening and the endgame, when to exchange, bishops against knights, be patient or just simplifiy.
Along the way he also gives a word of advice when to calculate as exactly as possible and when to rely on your acquired knowledge. He presents many examples from his own experiences where the reader is well guided and evetually is provided with a clear solution.
This book is highly recommended to all players as well as anyone who is coaching and cares for the pure understanding in the endgame.
Grandmaster Eduardas Rozentalis lifetime achievments in chess are enormous.
We mostly remember him being champion of Lithuania in 1981 and 2002, 3 times champion of the Young Masters of the USSR, 1984-85-87, World Youth Team champion in 1985 and World Senior Team champion in 2014.
In between 1985 until now, he won 45 international tournaments, played for many European different clubteams and in 10 Chess Olympiads for Lithuania.
Beginners are not the only ones who need to brush up on the endgame. Many a titled player has blundered in the endgame.
Jose Raul Capablanca once said, “To improve at chess, you must, in the first instance, study the endgame.” Despite the study of the endgame in chess being crucial to improving our chess, it remains a neglected part of the game by many.
