Beginning with the End
I'm remembering now why I was convinced that I needed to work on my endgame play when I was playing OTB chess actively - I keep getting situations where either the ending is lost or I lose it all by myself. :) Must remember - TIME and TACTICS are as important in the ending as they are in the opening (perhaps more so).
It may seem boring, but I think if I'm going to see 1700 I need to do some serious study on ending motifs. Anyone have any favorite resources?
