Endgame Strategy (English) (Paperback)M.I. Shereshevskii
Shereshevsky's masterful guide to endgame play is an essential work for every aspiring player. Using classic examples from grandmaster practice, together with modern illustrations and instructive games by lesser-known players, Shereshevsky lucidly explains the basic principles of the endgame: King centralization, the role of pawns, exchanging pieces, suppressing counterplay, two weaknesses...and much more. International Master Mikhail Shereshevsky is one of the strongest players from Byelorussia. He is a highly regarded trainer and author whose two-volume work (with Leonid Slutsky) Mastering the Endgame was also translated by Ken Neat.
