Endgame theory constitutes the foundation of chess. You realize this in striking clarity once you obtain a won endgame, but in the end have to be content with a draw in the end because of a lack of necessary know-how. Such accidents can only be prevented by building up a solid endgame technique.

Video running time: 5.5 hours.

This is Karsten Müller's first DVD, and the grandmaster from Hamburg and endgame expert here lays the foundation for acquiring such a technique.

The first part of his training series can be started without any endgame knowledge. Only a knowledge of the rules of chess is assumed. But for a lot of club players this course will be a welcome brush-up, as a glance at the content confirms. The topics range from elementary endings such as mating with the queen, with rook and with two bishops and mating with bishop and knight.
