'After the Fundamentals of Chess Endgames mainly dealt with elementary and theoretical endgames, Müller and Pajeken concentrate on the practical side of the endgame in this book. They not only show all the important aspects of a successful endgame strategy, but above all also explain the implementation and application of the necessary principles and thinking methods in tournament practice.
\r\nUsing numerous outstanding examples from current tournament events, the authors provide many useful tips and advice for perfect endgame management. For example, they discuss the causes of typical mistakes and show how to avoid them. They explain how to use an advantage correctly and prudently, and they also deal with psychological aspects of endgame practice.
\r\nTrue to this claim of being as \''practical\'' as possible, the book contains, in addition to the high-quality and demanding teaching units, more than 250 exercises with extensive commented solutions so that the reader can test and consolidate their newly acquired knowledge. The most important topics included:
\r\nBasic principles and methods
\r\nExploitation of an advantage
\r\nTypical errors
\r\nProphylaxis and prevention of counterplay
\r\nFight for the initiative
\r\nBishop pair in the endgame
\r\nThe right exchange
\r\nArt of Defense
\r\nRules of thumb
\r\nDr. Karsten Müller is a grandmaster and is considered one of the greatest endgame experts ever. He is the author of the award-winning books Secrets of Pawn Endings and Fundamentals of Chess Endgames.
\r\nWolfgang Pajeken is a FIDE master and has been a successful chess trainer for over 15 years. He has always succeeded in helping young players to achieve rapid and above-average performance improvements.
