Rules of thumb are the key to everything when you are having to set the correct course in a complex endgame. In this final DVD of his series on the endgame, our endgame specialist introduces you to the most important of these rules of thumb.

The first part deals with general guidelines such as “activate the king”, “the rook belongs behind passed pawns”, “do not rush”. In addition to such principles which are specific to the endgame, there are also rules of thumb as to making the correct exchanges, prophylaxis, improving the position of the worst placed piece, which you should already be taking into account in the middlegame!

The second part is sorted by material, going from pawn endings to endings with rook and minor piece against rook and minor piece. Once again Karsten Müller will hone your sixth sense for discovering when there are exceptions to the rules.

Because only this ability, which goes beyond the mere learning by heart of the rules of thumb, is the sign of real mastery. This DVD forms the final part of Karsten Müller’s series on the endgame, which already belongs to the classics of endgame theory. It is a must for the fans of the grandmaster from Hamburg!

Marshtower Chess Reviews:
"It acts very well as a stand alone release; prior knowledge of the material presented on volumes 1-13 is not necessary. Indeed, this is (somewhat ironically) a very good volume with which to start, giving, as it does, so much instruction based on the basic general principles. For newcomers to Karsten's endgame DVDs it is clear: If you like the style of this one then it would be a good idea to go back to volume 1 and work your way forward from there. Yes indeed, after eight years this magnificent series has finally come to a natural end. Rest assured that the high quality has been maintained all the way through the 14 volumes."
