Première phrase
The principle for this operation is the same as with all basic mates: The stronger side must drive the opposing King to the side of the board-not necessarily a corner of the board, although that is usually the case. Lire la première page

At the knee of the Master .... 19 septembre 2000
Par A.J. Goldsby I - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Quite simply, the absolutely best endgame book on the market today.
ALL my students love it.
I used to teach primarily out of "Pandolfini's Endgame Course." (This is an excellent book, and actually has much more overall material than the Seirawan book.) But this book is better. There is a lot more verbiage and explanations. GM Seirawan takes great pains to explain the moves and the GENERAL IDEAS of the ending you are trying to learn. Its almost as good as if you walked up to the GM, sat down by his knee and said, "Master, teach me everything I need to know to play the endings competently and well."
The Microsoft Press people have one of the finest teams of editors, proofreaders, etc. They have put together one of the best Chess Book series I have ever seen. I can heartily recommend the entire series.
I am sure if you buy this book and study it diligently, your understanding of the end phase of the game will increase 1000%!
(One minor note: The GM does a little bit of showing off in this book. Example: The ending where he has to calculate the win over 20 moves in advance is over the head of the average IM!! But I think you should expect a little of that from a player of Seirawan's capability. Remember, he was one of the country's strongest Master's well before he was out of his teens. He has won or tied for the U.S. Championship several times. He has been a Candidate for the World Championship and has won 1st Place at many International tournaments. So its not suprising to see a little chest thumping going on.)

Great, enjoyable book on the endgame. 8 décembre 2003
Par C. Dunn - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book does not replace an endgame manual, not even at the beginner level. You could, for example, read Pandolfini's Endgame Course in its entirety and still get some value from this book. It is not complete.
It is simply fun. Seirawan explains the ideas in words. He throws in anecdotes, tension, and humor. He goes over some of the basics in excruciating detail (for example, King+Bishop+Knight v. King, which is extremely rare in practice). He includes complete master-level endings so that you can see how it's done. His discussion of rook endings (extremely common in practice) is helpful. He finishes with a very interesting chapter on the difference between grandmaster play and the theoretically perfect moves in computer generated tablebases.
Another enthralling re-print in the Winning Chess series. Most appropriate to about 1300 level, even with no prior endgame knowledge.

Decent endings book 29 juillet 2002
Par Brian E. Mitchell - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I'm around a 1400 player, and I found this book to be useful, for the most part (although I *still* have trouble with kbn-k!), as it will give you the ideas behind many endings. Yasser takes a building block approach, and constantly builds upon prior knowledge in a very effective way.
This is, by far, the best endgame book I own.

Another great installment to the winning chess series 27 juin 2006
Par Chess Player trying to improve - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I can honestly say that I have never disliked a single book in the Winning Chess Series. Yasser Seirawan is a brilliant author. He combines his good writing skill and humor, his entertaining personality, his good chess skill, and his good teaching skill all into his winning chess series.

Winning Chess Endings is a great book. After just a few hours of studying king and pawn endgames from this book, I felt like I had mastered it. My hypothesis was correct when I went to a big national tournament and was undefeated! 3 out of 5 of my games were king and pawn endgames, and I was able to effectively win them thanks to this book. I have yet to complete the other chapters, Queen and pawn endings, Rook endings, bishop endings, knight endings, Bishop vs. Knight, Rook vs. Minor pieces , and the rare and the perfect. My only complaint is that in the basic mates chapter, where he teaches you King and rook vs. King checkmates(which I already knew), King and Queen vs. king endgames(which I already knew), King and two bishops vs.kings endgames (which I didn't know before, but now do know because of this book) and King andn Bishop and Knight vs. King. That last one is a very difficult one, and I don't feel that Yasser Seirawan teaches it well.

Overall this book was ideal for my level(USCF 1236) and probably good for ratings between 1000 and 1400.

Another good book by Yasser 29 mars 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Yasser saved one of the best of his Microsoft series for last. As in all his books, his style is easy to read and informative. It is one of the few endgame books around that doesn't bore you to tears plodding through it. It's also refreshing to see a top ranked player and author show how he blew an endgame against Kasparov, humility at its best.
What is nice to see his how he attempts to teach you WHY you make a move in the endgame versus so many other books which plod you through 100's of positions trying to show you the same concept.
For the advanced beginner of the lower intermediate player, this book is a fine addition to anyone's chess library.
