The endgame is that part of the game separating the strong player from the weak. How many games are won or lost because basic knowledge of endgames is lacking?
In this six-week course FM Paul Whitehead will lead a discussion covering basic and intermediate endings, including reviewing the participant’s knowledge of basic checkmates, principals and terminology – opposition, centralization, zugzwang. We will discuss and review the theory and practice of king and pawn endings, rook endings, minor piece endings, queen endings, and various material imbalances.
Participants will also be encouraged to bring in examples from their own games, and there will be plenty of take-home material and examples for independent study.Take your game to the next level!
