Product Details

Endings with rook and minor piece against rook and minor piece occur very frequently, even more ofter than rook endings. But there is not much literature on them. The new endgame DVD fills this gap. The four different material constellations rook and knight vs rook and knight, rooks and opposite colored bishops and same colored bishops and rook and bishop vs rook and knight are dealt with. The last configuration has been split into two chapters as those endings where the side with the bishop is better are completely different from examples in which the knight is trying to win. Furthermore, the endgame expert looks at a few positions with four rooks to discuss the extremely important theme of the correct rook exchange. In view of the different material constellations Karsten Mueller explains many guidelines like e.g. "With knights even a small initiative weighs heavily," "Opposite colored bishops favor the attacker," "Space advantage and a good bishop are important with same colored bishops," "Fighting against a knight the bishop prefers open positions and a fluid pawn structure, the knight want to have full control." But Karsten Mueller also wants to help you to train your intuition. After all the real art fo the royal game can be best seen in the recognition of expectations to the rules.
