HELP, my endgame is horrible.

    You blame that on the "double pawn weakness"?! 

    I think the check/double attack is probably the culprit, but I'm just an amateur.

    sacrificing always gives an advantage ?

    what if the person miscalculated the sacrifice ?

    when i said "sacrifice", it was tongue-in-cheek.

    surely this is the only website where you have to explain comments like that ?

    I don't know if this will help, but really great endgame players like Rubinstein and Capablanca were never above pocketing a free Queen early in the game. They found that it reduced the technical problems in the endgame

    True but it would still take Capablanca 50 moves to win.

    I can't look at this! The horror!
    If you having trouble with checkmate and stalemate:

    "If they are in check, it will not be stalemate."

    So put them in check repeatedly? Maybe that'll eventually work for you!

    That sounds like a terrible idea Cliff.

    Nietzsche, I'm not a very advanced player myself and other people have done a great job analysing your game. I just want to tell you forget about the sarcasm and insults. The first game I ever posted on the forums was when I was ranked in the 600s (now 1150s). I think two people out of ten or so actually tried to help me instead of giving a sarcastic or insulting response. So don't sweat it, you're getting a lot of good advice here.

    Thanks Bellomy. I have a sense of humor, so I enjoy the sarcasm. I did get some great advice! Congrats on the improvements you've made! I'm probably about 600, but I have absolutely no clue. I can easily beat the computer on beginner, but lose everytime to easy, lol. However, I do see an improvement already thanks to the suggestions on this thread.
