Hi all, welcome to my blog. This blog is the study of endgames. Here we will be discussing about the tricks and tactics that is needed to see the endgames.
Endgames are not like the middle game or openings.In an endgame, there are three possibilities, it is black to win, white to win or its a draw. Sometimes engames require a lot of calculations,  you should be trained for it. so lets start with a simple puzlle for warm up
Here it is white to play and win

Were you able find it? There are lots of studies regarding endgames.
The two engames you must know are
1. Lucina position.
2. Philidor Defence.
