At 85, Vasily Smyslov no longer takes part in chess tournaments, but the credo of the seventh world champion (1957–1958) is to pass on his accumulated experience. In a very personal way, he initiates the reader into the secrets of the rook endgame. During his active career, Smyslov was considered a true endgame virtuoso. Rook endgames are also of great importance because around 50 percent of all games are decided this way and even the greatest experts often make incredible mistakes. Smyslov has selected his 60 most interesting and instructive games from more than five decades for this volume and commented on them in an easy-to-understand manner so that you too can be successful in the rook endgame in the future.
