endgame tactics - Van Perlo's
WINNER of the ECF Book of the Year Award
WINNER of the ChessCafe Book of the Year Award
New and substantially expanded edition of a modern chess classic. By chance, in 2013 publisher New In Chess discovered a previously unnoticed and unpublished extra batch of endgame tactics collected by the legendary Dutch correspondence grandmaster Ger van Perlo (1932-2010).
More than 250 fresh examples have been added, making this fourth edition 25% BIGGER than its predecessors.
There is no substitute for hard work in getting better at chess, as a wise grandmaster once said. But you always work harder at something you enjoy. Make the first step towards improving your endgame play (and beating more opponents) by learning to love the endgame.
Endgames are fun, and the examples from everyday practice in Endgame Tactics prove it.
Who should read this book? “All chess life is here: brilliant wins, amazing draws and not infrequently defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.” Highly recommended for all chess players.
