OK in some of my other blogs I've stressed the importance of creating an opening on which you are in a good offensive and defensive position. By doing so you're more likely to win in the game. In the End Game it is easier to see the winner because they've already played through it and one out played the other. Although it is important to continue playing well because who knows one minute your just about ready to win and all of a sudden your opponent got a strategy and he/she puts you in checkmate. You may've been winning but they just found a position leading to checkmate. It is entirely possible to win a game you completely bombed by applying some sort of tactic or win by luck alone.
