Hi chess world, I have joined here to improve my end game. I love playing and think I start well but I make mistakes and my end game is bad so trying to improve it. Is there any advice or tips or help anyone can give me please I would really appreciate it.

Study Chess Fundamentals by Capablanca. In 60 pages it contains all you need to know.

Ok thanks anything easier that doesn't mean I have to read 60 pages please?

So is there no other advice about improving my end game here? I believe there must be amazing players here who can share please?

I got a lot better from reading "Silman's Complete Endgame Course From Beginner to Master". I also have read books like "100 Endgames You Must Know" by Jesus De La Villa. Furthermore, I've read "Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual" but beware of this one as it can be really hard and challenging to newer players.

I recommend starting with Silman's Complete Endgame Course as it includes many endgames and is more targetted towards a lower rated audience.

Hope this helps happy.png

look at games where you were very winning but lost, go to the position where you made a mistake and look at what move was better to keep your winning position then play from there against the highest chess engine level.

practicing that a couple of times makes you better.

60 pages is easy. Reading 3 pages a day is just 20 days.

That is a very good point I know. I just want to know other ways as well and try them all to see what helps me the most.

You won't learn anything from 15 minutes of YouTube endgame lessons.. maybe in two hours.

Learn queen pawn endgames

And rook endgames your level of play should get better once you know some basic checkmate patterns
