Product Details

A Gambit re-issue of this instructive endgame guide.

For all chess-players - from beginners to grandmasters, and whatever their style of play - one thing is certain: rook endings will arise in a great many of their games. Yet it is precisely in this area of the game that many players give away hard-earned points, either through lack of knowledge or inadequate understanding. Most previous books on the subject have been extremely technical and theoretical, but this one is different. John Emms provides the essential specific knowledge and explains the key concepts that will enable readers to find the right plan in most common types of rook endings.

Author John Emms is one of England's strongest grandmasters, and an experienced trainer. he is also a skillful and versatile writer: he has several opening monographs and general guides to his credit, and authored the hugely popular work, The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book.

I have purchased a couple of items from chesshouse and I have been very pleased with my choice. Although I live very far away, I am very happy with the times for deliveries and all the items arrive well preserved. I will definitely keep buying from this shop in the future.
