Most chess games are decided in the endgame. It is here that you can reap the rewards of good play or use all your skill to deny your opponent victory. Knowing some important endgame techniques will dramatically increase your confidence because you will understand which positions to aim for and which to avoid.

Starting with the most basic mates and the simplest pawn endgames, the player is then given the necessary endgame knowledge to play at club level and beyond. Müller guides us step by step through a variety of fascinating endgame tactics and maneuvers, helping us to understand the underlying logic.

Many clever endgame tricks are highlighted throughout the book, and you'll enjoy using them against your friends and family - or against your opponents in serious tournaments.

With Chess endgames for kids makes learning endgames fun. But it is also a serious endgame course written by a leading endgame expert and provides a solid foundation in important skills that will develop throughout your chess career.

The German Grandmaster Karsten Müller is arguably the world's leading author on chess endgames. Whenever an interesting endgame appears in a high-level game, the chess world knows that it will soon be dissected and explained by Müller. Whether he is writing for a lower or higher level audience, his infectious enthusiasm for the endgame always shines through. His "masterpiece", Basics of chess endgames (in collaboration with Frank Lamprecht and also published by Gambit) is a modern “endgame bible” that the reigning world champion Magnus Carlsen studied intensively in his youth.
