Jan 12, 2017 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I decided it’s time for me to advance my endgame knowledge beyond the basics. I have learned a few basics from Silman’s book How to Reassess Your Chess, Chess Life articles, and other odds and ends over the years, but never really studied. Silman’s book opened my eye’s to the importance of study in this area. I do have some books that I consider good. Pandolfini’s Endgame Course is for sure the first thing I’m going to read. It is basic, with well written descriptions. I like the way it has one ...more

I read this book about a decade ago. It’s on my list for a full reread. Dvorestky’s endgame manual is probably the most difficult and thorough endgame book out there and completely essential for any serious chess player. I don’t think it’s a suitable book for anyone under 2000.

Dvoretsky was a legendary Russian trainer and my endgame technique improved dramatically after working through the book.

If you want to learn endgames and improve your chess calculations. This is the book! Dvoretsky combines theory with practice problems whilst citing examples from famous games across the century. You can have a good opening, a decent middle game but, the endgame is all that matters.

Most profound and detailed endgame book out there. Classic Russian school of chess, Dvoretsky is widely considered one of the best, if not the very best chess instructors for advanced players in the world. He demonstrates what one really has to know and master to play chess on a very high level.

Jeg har downloadet - ikke 3 men 4 version af skak slutspilsbogen direkte til min Kindle. Om det vil tage mig 1 eller 10 år at læse den, have fornøjelse af at læse den, er slet ikke så vigtigt. Det er ikke så meget en bog man læser fra start til slut men snarer en bog man slår op i når man vil studere et bestemt slutspil. Dvoreskys bog om slutspil regnes for bogen! Men selvfølgelig er der hundredvis af andre gode slutspilsbøger.
