    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 Your knowledge never goes out of date!The bad news is that, all the same, the endgame technique of most players is deficient.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.

    • ISBN-13: 9780897934930
    • Publisher: Pgw
    • Published: February 2008
    The games in this book help teachers, parents, and others who work with children maintain or restore order, refocus children’s attention, and break up the classroom routine. Most of the games are quite short and can be used between academic activities as a treat or quick break. Many are noncompetitive, most don’t require props, and none require special skills or training. All can be played with the whole class; there are partner games, small group games, and outdoor games. Clear, complete instructions are included for each activity, and icons denote appropriate age levels, time, and group size. Author Allison Bartl has tested all of the games herself and recommends that the teacher or parent fully participate in each game, both to relax and to provide a model of good social behavior. Tips and thoughtful quotations from Goethe, Rudolf Steiner, Seneca, Lao Tse, Mother Theresa, and others are also included.

    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.
