Which phase of game do you like most?

Opening, middlegame, and endgame?

I love the endgames.  It's thrilling that at this phase of game, you or me is mated or not, and most of the pieces are gone in the endgame, so I must concentrate on how to mate my opponent with resting few pieces or how to prevent my being mated.

Deeper endgames I must concern how to promote my pawn and how to prevent my opponents promotion.  Once I got my pawn to a queen, I can grip the winning, but it's always difficult to promote a pawn into a queen.  Sometimes I must consider about stalemate.  Anyway, endgames of chess is a white-knuckle thing for me and it's exciting.
