Susan Polgar, 8: Essential Basic Chess Endgames Part 1 DVD
Essential Basic Endgames
It is vital that players know how to handle (and win!) the basic endgames in chess. Time spent mastering the endgame will prove far more valuable than learning a few opening lines. In Chapter 1 of this DVD, Susan covers all the most important chess endgames for the novice player.
Susan will show you how to checkmate a lone King, using a Queen, then a Rook, then 2 Bishops or a Knight and Bishop. Even some unusual mates are included. In Chapter 2 Susan covers all the basic pawn endgames, the Rook's pawn, Opposition, the Rule of the Square, and Geometry in chess. Topics include the pawn race, two extra pawns, one side Queens first, King activity - and lots more!
