The secrets of Magnus Carlsen’s endgame technique
Magnus Carlsen’s brilliant endgame play has been one of the key reasons for his success. At the age of 13 the Norwegian became the youngest grandmaster in the world, at 19 the youngest number one in the FIDE world rankings, and at 22 the second youngest World Champion in history.
With his fine technique, great inventiveness and iron determination Magnus has won countless endgame positions in which almost everyone else would have settled for a draw. He also has saved endgames that seemed impossible to hold.
International Master Tibor Karolyi has studied Carlsen’s career and has selected more than 90 of his best endgames for this book. He reviews them in chronological order to show how Magnus developed his skills. His technique and his choices are explained in a manner that is easy to understand for club players.
Endgame Virtuoso Magnus Carlsen is a highly instructive, inspiring and entertaining book. It will help you to appreciate Magnus’ endgame magic and shows you how to become a better endgame player yourself.

"A real gem! Karolyi manages to entertain and instruct. When Magnus plays, it all looks so easy." -- Karsten Muller, Grandmaster, Author of Fundamental Chess Endings"Karolyi's latest book on Carlsen will receive even more acclaim than his work on Karpov's endgame technique. He has a pleasant style of analyzing: objective, not too many variations, with plenty of diagrams. He always ends with useful observations on Carlsen's play." -- Hans Bohm, International Master, De Telegraaf (Holland) "A fantastic book on Carlsen's endgame technique, from which one can learn a great deal." -- Dirk Schuh, International Master "Karolyi provides 91 examples of endgames in which Carlsen squeezes water out of a rock." -- Johan Hut, Noord-Hollands Dagblad "How does he do it? That is the question tackled by Karolyi. The Games are presented chronologically, so we can appreciate how the 16th World Champion has honed his skill, as well as try to copy a little of his technique in our own games.", CHESS Magazine (UK) "One of those must-have endgame books.", Elburg Chess Reviews "It's nice to be reminded of so many great moments!" -- Simen Agdestein, Grandmaster "I enjoyed marveling at Carlsen's astonishing ingenuity in finding new ways to tie up his opponents with only minimal material on the board. It would be a good book to inculcate juniors into the joys of playing endgames!" -- Matthew Sadler, Grandmaster "I think that this book would be useful to just about any chess player. If you are serious about improving, then this book is an excellent way to better your endgame skills. If you are simply a fan of Magnus Carlsen or of well-played chess, then this book is also for you! I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone." -- Chris Wainscott, On the Road to Chess Master
