Endgames often give rise to the most difficult and pivotal moments of a chess game. In Sharp Endgames, International Master Esben Lund tackles this crucial topic in a unique and innovative way, focusing on the 16 Parameters involved in this type of decision-making.
The book contains more than a hundred carefully chosen exercises, with solutions linked to the 16 Parameters. The feedback is concrete and gives the player a clear way to improve his or her understanding and skill. The exercises can be played out against a partner or engine; the book even contains a step-by-step guide explaining how to configure a chess engine for this purpose.
“Esben Lund has issued you a challenge: invest time and effort in this book, and your chess results are going to improve – no matter your current level. The question is: are you ready to accept the challenge? I strongly encourage you to accept – you will not regret it.” – From the Foreword by GM Lars Bo Hansen
Esben Lund, an International Master from Denmark, is a respected author and coach. His two first books for Quality Chess, Rook vs. Two Minor Pieces and The Secret Life of Bad Bishops, were both well received for their originality and absorbing study material.
ISBN: 978-1-78483-039-7 - 312 pages - Published 2 November 2017
"I cannot speak highly enough of Lund's work here. Sharp Endgames is the first major title I have seen that outlines a thoughtful strategy for training against an engine, and Lund makes a persuasive case for the practical importance of such activity... a deeply original effort, and every player over 2000 should strongly consider the ideas in Sharp Endgames for their own training."
