Recently the interest to endgame has considerably increased. Many chess play­ers who did not pay any special attention to it before, have started to study guides on endings strenuously. Now games are not adjourned, and all decisions should be made at the board. Besides the popularity of active chess grows where the knowl­edge of typical positions and game methods in the endgame is especially important.

To learn playing endgame well, it is necessary:

- To know as many typical ways, positions and methods of their playing as pos­sible. With the skill growth the quantity of exact positions which should be firmly remembered should increase.

- To learn to understand the final stage of a game, to find the correct plans in it. For this purpose it is necessary to study endgame classics and to solve chess prob­lems constantly, first of all those that are as close to a practical game as possible, as well as to analyze own endings carefully.

The first volume consists of 7 chapters devoted to pawn and minor-pieces endings. The chapters are divided into themes, each of them has examples for independent solving. All answers can be found at the end of the book. The author hopes that this book will help readers to learn more about the endings, to enjoy them and to learn playing them well.
