Endgame knowledge is absolutely crucial in chess. By understanding endgames, you can work backward to find the proper plans in the middlegames and even openings.

It is also the most boring part in chess to study. Therefore, I always try to teach my own children and students to understand endgame patterns instead of memorizing each position. It is impossible to memorize every endgame position!

That is why I came out with 3 volume endgame DVD:

Essential Basic Endgames Part 1

Essential Basic Endgames Part 2

Essential Endgames: Intermediate
