Chess Endgames 1 Basic Knowledge for Beginners
Endgame theory constitutes the foundation of chess. You realize this in striking clarity once you obtain a won endgame but in the end have to be content with a draw because of a lack of necessary know-how. Such accidents can only be prevented by building up a solid endgame technique.
Chess Endgames 2 Rook Endgames DVD
Endgame theory forms the basis for chess. This becomes painfully clear as soon as a player has reached a clearly won endgame, yet must finally content himself with a draw because he lacks the necessary know-how.
Chess Endgames 3 Major Piece Endgames DVD
The third part of the endgame series tackles Queen endings, Rook against minor pieces, Queen against Rook and Queen against two Rooks. Queen endings are not nearly as mysterious as they appear at first sight. Knowing a few rules of thumb and principles will make things very much easier for you.
Chess Endgames 4 Strategical Endgames DVD
In the fourth volume of the endgame series a lot of themes with more material are included, such as Rook and minor piece versus Rook (and minor piece), Rook versus two minor pieces, double Rook endings, Queen and Knight versus Queen and Bishop, the Bishop pair and other endgame principles.
Chess Endgames 5: Endgame Principles - Activity & Initiative
Activity is above all important when we consider the role of the Kings in the endgame because it is then that they leave their protective shield of pawns and take an active part in the proceedings. A further major topic is the activity of the Rook and it is not uncommon in the ending for a pawn to be sacrificed to obtain such activity.
Chess Endgames 7: Endgame Principles, Weaknesses & Fortresses DVD
The new 7th volume deals with many different aspects of endgame play:
the art of pawn play, weaknesses, converting an advantage, stalemate,
fortresses, the art of defence and typical mistakes. But the themes are
connected in various ways. If you do not master the art of pawn play you
will end up with weaknesses. And your opponent then
Chess Endgames 8: Practical Rook Endings
This DVD focuses on the themes which are to be found in Rook endings.
This course also starts with the endgame of Rook against pawn because
this particular constellation frequently occurs and can be understood
and easily learned with the knowledge of a few techniques such as the
body check, intermediate check and cutting off the King.
Chess Endgames 9: Rook and Minor Piece
Endings with rook and minor piece against rook and minor piece occur
very frequently, even more often than rook endings. But there is not
much literature on them. The new chess endgame DVD fills this gap.
Chess Endgames 10 Software: Rook and Two Minor Pieces
Although the distribution of material with a Rook and two minor pieces
against a Rook and two minor pieces is a very common one in practical
chess play, there is very little literature on the subject apart from
that dealing with questions relating to the Bishop pair.
Chess Endgames 11: Rook against Bishop
These endgames allow one to study the important characteristics
"coordination“ and "harmony of the pieces“ in detail and lead to
interesting practical insights. For instance, Müller shows that Rook and
Knight are markedly superior to Bishop + Knight whereas the two Bishops
cope much better.
Chess Endgames 12: Rook against Knight
The very important aspects "coordination" and "harmony of the pieces"
can be studied well in those chess endgames and help to improve the
practical play. Especially the geometry of the knight can be analysed in
