  • Do or Die with Rook Endings

    Śr. ranking: 1470
    Endings with rooks and pawns are by far the most common endings in chess. You will probably lose or gain as more points in these positions than in all other endings combined. Therefore you need to know the basic positions, and some strategic principles when the play becomes more difficult. I want to have you learn and practice the former, and give you a feel for the latter.

  • Bishop versus Knight (Part 1)

    Śr. ranking: 1661
    It is generally known that the bishop is stronger than the knight in most cases. Some experts even call such an advantage "a small exchange." Why the bishop is better, and when in the endgame-- this is what we are going to discover in our course. I tried to choose only fresh samples from modern practice when strong players were following their plans in the best possible way. The only exception is the last sample, which is a true masterpiece and it would be a pity not to include it in the course....
  • Knight versus Bishop (Part 2)

    Śr. ranking: 1700
    In this course we shall see when the knight can overtake the other minor piece- the bishop; when the knight is better than its colleague; and why. I tried again to use mainly fresh samples from modern practice, although some old interesting positions were also taken into account. Enjoy the course.
  • Pawn Play in the Endgame

    Śr. ranking: 1520
    Pawns play important roles in all phases of the game, but it's in the ending that it becomes obvious they are the stars of the show. The reason? Full-blown mating attacks and complex tactical battles are rare - the dominant theme is the creation and promotion of passed pawns. The puzzles in this course can be approached individually and in any order by players who are just looking for some challenging fun. For those with a more systematic approach, the puzzles are mostly ordered from the easiest...

  • The Drawing Zone, Part 1

    Śr. ranking: 1290
    Everyone wants to be a winner in chess. But don't forget that part of winning is...not losing! Every chess player, from the earliest beginner to the world champions, sometimes has a game that gets derailed and needs to be saved. Part of improving in chess is learning how to defend a disadvantageous ending and save the draw. This improves your results just as much as winning an advantageous ending does. There is also a beauty in saving a difficult ending, in holding on with subtle and dour defense....
  • The Drawing Zone, Part 2

    Śr. ranking: 1820
    In "The Drawing Zone, Part 1" we saw some examples of how to hold a draw in an inferior position. Saving a draw in the endgame may not be the most sexy part of chess, but it is still a very important element of chess ability. Now let's see some more difficult problems on the same theme.
  • Capablanca's Endgame Masterpieces

  • Opposite-Colored Bishops

    Śr. ranking: 2020
    Bishops of opposite colors have always been considered rather peaceful opponents. Indeed, the drawing tendencies in these endgames are very high but if the conditions are right (there are good passed pawns, one of the bishops is much stronger than the other, or one of the sides has a more active king) we can successfully play for a win. This course is designed to confirm your knowledge from my video series on opposite-colored bishops, and to further expand your understanding of these tricky endgames....
