End Games are the realm of the Chess Master.
It’s not enough to have a theoretically won game. You have to actually be able to finish your opponent off and translate it into a victory.

Once you begin to understand the end game, your view of Chess in the openings and middle games will change because you will begin to see the small advantages that accrue from seemingly innocuous moves. Chess will begin to come alive and your enjoyment will increase. Of course, to reach that point is not easy and for all but the few who are seemingly born chess prodigies, you have to learn. Fine’s book has been the standard work for Chess end-games ever since he wrote it in the ‘s.
Since that time there is no question that there have been many innovations and corrections found. That is the reason for the 4 stars instead 5. But those issues are well documented in many sources and when you are ready for them you will be able to find them and supplement your knowledge. This still remains an outstanding work to begin to work through the different types of endings.
The book is encyclopedic, very well organized endimgs the “errors” ejdings are there are such that if you were eeuben master the material in this book you would still be an extraordinary player and able to “fix” the issues that are there. This is not a book for the lightweight chess player. As you endihgs to approach Class A hasic Expert level, however, you will need what this book has to offer. This is very much a major part of the pathway to Chess-Master. Sep 08, Alec rated it it was amazing.
Endins Bible of Chess Endings for decades it’s a great book I have the corrected version and Fine’s original version he wrote in the ‘s that I bought for 0.
People complain about the remaining mistakes in the revised book but we must remember this is a classic any GM who tinkers with the content in the future must be extremely careful not to mess with the book and change Fine’s work to the point that it’s The Bible of Chess Endings for decades it’s a great book I have the corrected version and Fine’s original version he wrote in the ‘s that I bought for 0.
People complain about the remaining mistakes in the revised book but we must remember this is a classic any GM who tinkers with the content in the future must be extremely careful not to mess with the book and change Fine’s work to the point that it’s not the same book that came from Fine’s hands.
That’s why Pal Benko said he revised it with the intent of doing no harm once you start changing things where do you stop? Some GM’s have done that to other classic books and it’s been a disaster. Oct 31, endijgs rated it really liked it Shelves: Another bible gone west. Mar 19, Robert endints it liked it Shelves: When I was young and there were not many books available about the endgame, this book was a must read.
As GM John Nunn has pointed out: These days, when I need a book with very well written general explanations and When I was young and there were not many books available about the endgame, this book was a must read. These days, when I need a book with very well written general explanations and superb reuebn I use Dvoretsky’s “Endgame Manual” or Nunn’s three books about the basic and practical endings.
Still, I hope that in the XXI century someone like, for instance, GM Karsten Mueller will clean this classical masterpiece from all the analytical errors so that I can put this title back on the list of “must-read-books”.
Mar 02, Jacob added it. About a month ago a friend beat me twice at chess while he was drunk and high. I would like to think that I’m a pretty fair chess player.
I am a little out of practice right endongs I know my way around the board and have been playing for years. I was once playing chess with a girl, probably one endongs the smartest people I know and a great chess player, and I said to her, check in four and she said no way.
I could see it though. I knew exactly how each move would unfold and what the result would be. Th About a month ago a friend beat me twice at chess while he was drunk and high. That’s the reubdn of a good game of chess. Anyway, I felt humbled when I was check mated twice in a row by a man that probably couldn’t operate a car in ensings current condition. They say it’s the quiet ones you gotta watch out for, it’s also the stoned and drunk ones apparently. Jul 16, Don rated ednings liked it.
I’ve read many many chess books and this book comes with rave reviews. In some respects that is true. The in-depth coverage of each and every possible piece position. For example Opposite colored bishops draws with one pawn draws with two pawns ect. On the other hand the book was written some time ago.
Before algebraic notation and even though the book has algebraic notation incorporated into the text you still get the feel that its a fairly old book. Extensively researched and comprehensive yet the explanations are hard to understand because it was written in English a few years back.
