    This is a new and improved edition of an all-time classic! The good news about endgames is that there are relatively few endings you should know by heart and that once you know these endings, that's it. Your knowledge never goes out of date!The bad news is that, all the same, the endgame technique of most players is deficient. Modern time-controls make matters worse: there is simply not enough time to delve deep into the position.Grandmaster Jesus de la Villa debunks the myth that endgame theory is complex and he teaches you to steer the game into a position you are familiar with. This book contains only those endgames that show up most frequently, are easy to learn and contain ideas that are useful in more difficult positions.Your performance will improve dramatically because this book brings you simple rules, detailed and lively explanations, many diagrams, clear summaries of the most important themes and dozens of tests.

    This great learning tool and fun book challenges you to solve the puzzles and find the checkmate in 200 unique situations. You’ll be using capture mates – a chess term for taking an opponent’s piece and winning at the same time – to accomplish each of these victories. The first 100 of these puzzles are ne-move mates. Find the right move, checkmate the king and you win! The second 100 puzzles are more challenging. These are two-move mates. You make a move that captures a piece or a pawn, your opponent makes a forced reply, and then you swoop in for the coup de grace. Learn to use every piece to find the mates; and to keep the puzzles interesting, the authors have tossed in a few tricky mates as well! With 200 easy-to-use large diagrams. 160p.

  • 365 Ways to Checkmate

    By Joe Gallagher

    Tactics based on checkmate ideas against the enemy king decide a large proportion of chess games, so it is vital to be alert to these possibilities when they occur. Joe Gallagher provides 365 checkmate puzzles to help readers sharpen their skills. In each position, the task is to find a way to force a clear-cut win. The theme is always checkmate: either the enemy king perishes, or can only be saved at a decisive cost in material. Joe Gallagher is ideally qualified to write on this subject. Throughout his career, he has been especially feared for his attacking ability and tactical skills. The puzzles, most of which have never before been published, are grouped into categories, starting with easier positions and working up to more difficult ones. Full solutions are given, and all the positions have been carefully checked for alternative solutions and for soundness of the actual solution.
