The endgame is perhaps the most critical stage of the game. All your hard work has gone into getting some kind of advantage – now you have to convert it to a win.

However, the endgame also has its own unique characteristics: the King becomes an active piece; pawns become game winners, and perpetual check might save the game for someone.

In Chess Endgames, GM Susan Polgar reveals the tried and tested techniques to win the most common types of endings. Knowledge of these will serve you for a lifetime – they never change.

You’ll learn how to save Rook endgames a pawn down; how to win despite having opposite-colored Bishops and whether you can win with a Queen against a pawn on the 7th rank.

Armed with this understanding, you’ll have extra chances to win your games plus improve your strategic and technical play.
