Product Description:

Endgame theory constitutes the foundation of chess. You realise this in striking clarity once you obtain a won endgame but in the end have to be content with a draw in the end because of a lack of necessary know-how. Such accidents can only be prevented by building up a solid endgame technique. This is Karsten Mueller's first DVD and the Grandmaster from Hamburg and endgame expert, here lays the foundation for acquiring such a technique. The first part of his training series can be started without any endgame knowledge, only a knowledge of the rules of chess is assumed. But for a lot of club players this course will be a welcome brush up as a glance on the content confirms: The topics range from elementary endings such as mating with the Queen, with Rook and with two Bishops and mating with Bishop and Knight. The DVD also teaches the fundamentals of pawn endings, Kight vs. pawns endings, Bishop vs. Knight endings, Queen vs. pawns endings plus Knight and Bishop endings, including endings with Bishop of the same and of opposite colour. Those who have always felt that studying the endgame from textbooks is to uninspiring and too arduous, will enjoy this DVD and certainly profit from it. Video running time: 5.5 hours. Including ChessBase 9.0 Reader. Since 1988 Grandmaster Dr. Karsten Mueller from Hamburg plays for the Hamburger Schachklub in the Bundesliga and in 1996 and 1997 he finished third in the German Championship. As an internationally renowned endgame expert he is the author of the endgame column in the ChessBase magazine and the author of the Endgame Corner column on ChessCafe.com. His book "Fundamental Chess Endings", which he co-authored with Frank Lamprecht and which was published in 2001 by Gambit is already considered to be a modern classic.
