Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

"the authors have somehow managed to create that rare beast - a readable encyclopaedia. ... If you only have one endgame book, it should be this one." - GM Jonathan Rowson

* More than 1300 chess diagrams
* Comprehensive: covers all major endgames
* Starts with the basics before moving on to more advanced material
* Content rechecked with 6-man tablebases
* Features both instructional and reference material
* Written by two renowned endgame specialists
* A winner of the British Chess Federation's Book of the Year Award

In a major event in chess publishing, two German endgame experts have produced a masterly one-volume encyclopaedia that covers all major endgames.

This is the first truly modern one-volume endgame encyclopaedia. It makes full use of endgame tablebases and analytical engines that access these tablebases; where previous authors could only make educated guesses, Müller and Lamprecht have often been able to state the definitive truth, or get much closer to it.

New time-controls involve competitive games being played to a finish in one session, so it is especially important that chess-players understand the key endgame principles. This book provides comprehensive assistance for any players wishing to study the endgame. In addition to a feast of detailed analysis, the authors emphasize the practical side of endgame play, describing rules of thumb, principles, and thinking methods.

Fundamental Chess Endings is both the ideal endgame reference work, and a book that can profitably and enjoyably be read from start to finish.

"The authors love the endgame phase of the game and this shows in the writing. ... Anyone reading it will seriously improve their game." - from the British Chess Federation Book of the Year press release

"Müller has established a reputation in the chess world in the past few years as a paragon of accuracy and objectivity in the realm of endgame analysis" - IM Malcolm Pein, Daily Telegraph

Karsten Müller is a grandmaster from Germany, who competes regularly in the Bundesliga and in international events. He finished third in the German Championship in 1996, and was runner-up in 1997. He is a noted authority on both practical and theoretical endgames.

Frank Lamprecht is also from Germany, and is an international master. He has been a chess trainer since 1983 and was also co-author (with Karsten Müller) of the highly acclaimed Secrets of Pawn Endings.

"A book has emerged that looks to be the new standard for endgame evaluations... I recommend this book highly" - Cecil Rosner, Winnipeg Free Press

"I have seen the future of endgame writing and research, and it is Fundamental Chess Endings. This huge book deftly serves as a reference work, a workbook, and a guide to database-driven further study on this all-too-often neglected part of the game. This book blew me away when I first started working with it - it should be required study for anybody wanting to improve his or her play. In conclusion, this is the best one volume endgame reference work available. It belongs in the library of every serious chess player. More than that, it deserves serious study; don't be sorry, your chess will be the better for it." - Randy Bauer, Randy's Reviews

"It is evident throughout that Müller and Lamprecht really want their readers to master their endings, and thus they constantly highlight key themes, and emphasise which positions simply have to be memorised. The coverage for each main different type of endgame concludes with puzzles, whilst there is a further chapter solely of puzzles at the end, which greatly helps readers to test their newly acquired knowledge. Overall this is an important one-volume endgame manual, which not only brings endgame theory up to date, but also provides all that the practical player needs to know about every type of ending." - IM Richard Palliser, British Chess Federation

Le must à avoir pour comprendre les fins de parties aux échecs. Je ne le trouvais nulle part dans les librairies en France. Amazon me l'a livré en moins de 3 jours.

HASH(0x93e2a54c) étoiles sur 5 A massive masterpiece 25 novembre 2002
Par Petrosian - Publié sur
Format: Broché
With quickplay finishes requiring most chess games to be finished in one sitting, having proper knowledge of the endgame is even more important. Adjournments for extensive analysis are thus abolished, requiring the player to have this crucial endgame knowledge at his (or her) fingertips. This book will help you attain that goal.
Please read what Grandmaster Lubosh Kavalek had to say (November 25, 2002 Washington Post chess column)
"An endgame book does not often win a prestigious award, but "Fundamental Chess Endings" by Karsten Muller and Frank Lamprecht and issued by Gambit Publications in London, could not have been overlooked by the judges of the British Chess Federation's 2002 Book of the Year Award. The clearly written volume honored by the BCF was conceived as a textbook, divided into 12 chapters with exercises. It has been meticulously checked by computer programs, correcting mistakes and some myths of the past. I wish the book had been around in the '60s, '70s or '80s when players could have learned endgames by adjourning them and consulting such a manual."

HASH(0x93e2a5a0) étoiles sur 5 Excellent book for VERY experienced player! 24 janvier 2003
Par Igor Khmelnitsky - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a very thick (416 pages) and large book that combines all major types of endgames in one single volume. While at the heart of this book is a vast number of endgame positions classified by piece presents annotated in great detail, you will also find a lot of general terminology explained, many brief comments inserted in the analysis that help understand the general principles, thinking approach and other practical issues. After each chapter, you can practice several exercises.
I dislike the use of softcover for such a thick and large book, I doubt it will hold up for a long. This is a shame, since, otherwise, this is a perfect edition. Nice clear diagrams, easy indicator whose move it is and what you are expected to do. Also, the text is easy to read and follow. Sometimes, when analysis go for more than 10 moves, having another diagram would really help. On the other hand, you really should use the chess board when studying, so this is not such a big issue. Authors are well known experts in combining endgame analysis on the chess board with the latest computer hardware and software. I have been through several examples and found very detailed analysis, good references to previous publications and timely general comments.
Who will benefit
There are many quality endgames books and software on the market. Whether or not you want to add this not [inexpensive] book to your library is up to you. I believe, that practically everyone above 1800, who is familiar with basic endgame principles and have good calculation skills, will benefit from going through this books. In fact I would suggest the following approach- set up each position on the board (or from the diagram in the book); find out whose move it is; develop plans for both sides; calculate variation as deep as you can; compare your plans and variation with the authors analysis.
An excellent book for home studying for experienced players who are familiar with basic endgames and have developed good calculation skills. If you still working on developing those, I would suggest - Alburt's "Just the Facts", Averbakh's "Chess Endings Essential Knowledge." For studying on the go, I would suggest Concise Chess Endings by McDonald.
Good luck,

HASH(0x93e2a9d8) étoiles sur 5 A Monumental Achievement 26 décembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I believe we are living in the Golden Age of chess. Many, if not most, of the greatest players of all time are young and active today. While I admit that the above statement is debatable, I am far more certain that we are living in the Golden Age of chess writing. Of course, there's plenty of garbage out there; but if you're looking for good stuff, it's almost as easy to find, thanks in large part to Gambit, the British company that publishes chess books and nothing but chess books.
There are at least four large one-volume encyclopedic works on the endgame: Fine's BASIC CHESS ENDINGS, Keres's PRACTICAL CHESS ENDINGS; Wade, Speelman and Tisdall's BATSFORD CHESS ENDINGS; and now this one. Its three predecessors are excellent works in themselves, but this has a good shot at being generally regarded as the best of them all. Why? Well, it's as well written as the others; it's designed to be read cover-to-cover as a series of lessons or as a reference work, and it's all computer-checked for accuracy. There are sure to be some errors--I hope mostly typographical rather than analytical--but as long as there aren't very many of them, the book should be a great help to anyone wishing to improve his practical results by knowing more about the endgame than his peers. I haven't read the whole book yet, but so far my opinion is that big books on endings don't get any better than this.

HASH(0x93e2ad8c) étoiles sur 5 Ten stars 6 février 2005
Par L B Marren - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you are looking for the definitive one-volume endgame manual, this is the book, make no mistake. FCE is sensational. Somehow the authors have achieved the almost super-human feat of writing a monumental reference work that is at the same time instructive and readable. As well as explaining the techniques and principles of thousands of endgames, the authors have even gone to the trouble of inserting numberous tests and puzzles. It is obvious they really care about the reader assimilating the material.

As the project was meticulously checked by computer program, and the typesetter was John Nunn, it is safe to say the quality of analysis and assessments is as close to perfection as is possible. The book belongs in the library of anyone who takes chess seriously.

HASH(0x93e2ae88) étoiles sur 5 Must have chess book for ANY chess player! 29 novembre 2003
Par Sebastian Fernandez - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book will certainly make a huge impact in your play. It is absolutely great to be able to trade pieces in the midlegame when you know that the ensuing endgame is won for you and your opponent does the same because he does not see this! It is also very valuable to know certain theoretically drawn positions in order to avoid them when you have the edge, or seek them when you don't.
This book has all that plus a LOT more, you will find every "commonly" reached endgame and a clear explanation (with plenty of variations) on the right way to play it. You should study this book no matter what your level of play is ad you will get a clear edge against your opponents that have not done so!
