Endgames often give rise to the most difficult and pivotal moments of a chess game. In Sharp Endgames, International Master Esben Lund tackles this crucial topic in a unique and innovative way, focusing on the 16 Parameters involved in this type of decision-making.
The book contains more than a hundred carefully chosen exercises, with solutions linked to the 16 Parameters. The feedback is concrete and gives the player a clear way to improve his or her understanding and skill. The exercises can be played out against a partner or engine; the book even contains a step-by-step guide explaining how to configure a chess engine for this purpose.
“Esben Lund has issued you a challenge: invest time and effort in this book, and your chess results are going to improve – no matter your current level. The question is: are you ready to accept the challenge? I strongly encourage you to accept – you will not regret it.” – From the Foreword by GM Lars Bo Hansen
