A : KING CENTRALIZATION: In the endgame, king is powerful piece and has to be brought to the nearer to battlefront by centralisation. (NIMZOWITSCH)

REASON: from there it can go to either king or queen side where the battle is going on. It creates more space for us and limits the same for opponent.

B: QUEEN

C: MINOR PIECE

Shelters and bridge building:

When our king is in the centre ( wandering around : AN), he may be attached by opponents and we may get serial checks (thundering and lightning, cold air: AN). So we must be build shelter or bridge around our king, to protect him from thundering and lightning.

The endgame technique demands of us that we learn to construct a shelter, just as a scout puts up his tent. We are helped in this by the idea of bridge building. ARON NIMZOWITSCH.
