The 50 endgame challenges highlight tactics and demonstrate endgame principles in action. In practice it is vital to avoid tempting but disastrous moves, and to defend resiliently, and there are innovative chapters on these rarely-covered themes.The last two sections will prove a stern challenge even for the best players, with the reader exposed to the full complexity of modern chess decision-making - though with a few helpful hints along the way. 50 of these puzzles are drawn from the Gambit vaults, with startling points spotted by Gambits authors and editors over the last twelve years.Gambit Publications has been publishing top-quality innovative chess books since 1998, winning numerous awards in several countries.
