Equal Endgames are not easy!


When you're down to 12 total pieces or less, just look really carefully for forcing threats like captures and checks as well as tactical themes like pin, fork, overload, removing the defender, decoy, etc. on every single move.

Usually you won't have to look any further than 2 or 3 moves and you can at the very least "hold" these equalish endgames against anyone lower than master.
