Here are some of the best references to endgames on the Web.

One of the best endgame engines on the web is the web query for the Nalimov Endgame Tablebases. It is limited to 6 pieces or less (including kings) but it is excellent at solving any endgame with 6 pieces or less. I have used it on dozens of my endgames that I have played throughout the years and was surprised at all the missed opportunities both sides missed in simple endgames. The link is located here:
