The aim of every chess game is checkmate. The first part of this book presents 100 typical checkmate positions in short games, divided into knight, bishop, rook and queen checkmate in various combinations. The individual occurrence of the checkmate situation is also replayed. This way, the finer points of the game of chess are explored in a playful way. The second part deals with the endgame with only a few pieces against an opposing bastion of pawns. A systematic presentation of successful checkmate attacks and typical checkmate positions!
