Here... at long last... we have it. A new type of endgame book. A book which explains how to handle those positions that frequently occur in practical play but curiously are hardly ever the subject of theoretical works.Most endgame books rely upon recycling established theory on basic positions or concentrate on fantastical studies. This one is different. Well known Grandmaster and endgame expert Glenn Flear examines in depth all endgames which feature either two pieces for each side or two pieces against one.Why is this an important subject? Because these situations arise surprisingly frequently in practical play. For example an examination of any big database will reveal that the endgame of rook and minor piece versus rook and minor piece arises in nearly 20% of games. That means that if you open with 1 e4 you are more likely to reach one of these endgames than you are to face the French Defence. And overall every time you sit down to play a game of chess there is nearly a 50% chance that you will reach one of the endgames covered in this book.If you can handle such endgames well your results will inevitably improve. This book will show you how.
