Leseprobe (PDF)

Endgames often give rise to the most difficult and pivotal moments of a chess game. In Sharp Endgames , International Master Esben Lund tackles this crucial topic in a unique and innovative way, focusing on the 16 Parameters involved in this type of decision-making.

The main chapters deal with various categories of forcing endgames, using different scenarios involving material imbalances, pawn races and attacks on the king. The author focuses on Critical Moments, where the player must assess priorities and weigh up many factors against each other before deciding upon a move.

The book contains more than 100 carefully chosen exercises, with solutions linked to the 16 Parameters. The feedback is concrete and gives the player a clear way to improve his or her understanding and skill. The exercises can be played out against a partner or engine; the book even contains a step-by-step guide explaining how to configure a chess engine for this purpose.

Esben Lund , an International Master from Denmark, is a respected author and coach. His two first books for Quality Chess, Rook vs. Two Minor Pieces and The Secret Life of Bad Bishops, were both well received for their new ideas and interesting study material.
