First, thanks to everyone to replied to my other post about My System.
Now, i have seirawan's endings... can anybody recommend a good endgame book...
Thanks to all...
Silman's recent endgame book is a good candidate. An earlier work that I heard good things about is Averbach's Chess Endgames : Essential knowledge.
Though with the endgame, I'd stick to a ladder-like study progression and seek out parts of books that address those rungs in your ladder.
For example :
- Basic Mates
- Queen and King vs King and Pawn (win/draw technique)
- King and Pawn vs. King (ALL and I MEAN ALL possible scenarios)
- King and two Pawns vs. King and Pawn
- King and Rook and Pawn vs King and Rook (Lucena, Philidor and friends)
It is completely psychotic to start endgame studies higher up in complexity (such as in a Dvoretsky book) when you haven't even conquered the basics, so make sure you are reading stuff that you can absorb.
