GM Miguel Illescas - Chess Strategy Lessons - Video 13

Opening: C10, D98, B48, B44: French: Paulsen variation, Grunfeld: Russian, Sicilian: Taimanov, Sicilian: Szén variation

Player(s): Reshevsky, Woliston, Kasparov, Karpov, Polgar, Ljubojevic, Deep Junior

There are many world champions and great coaches who have pointed out the importance of studying the endgame. In this series of videos we will learn endings from a practical point of view, reinforcing key concepts and developing our intuition. But we will also examine the critical moments when the player must decide whether it is convenient to change pieces to move on to the endgame or it is better to continue in the middle game, with examples of great champions such as Kasparov, Karpov or Smyslov. We will get a better understanding of when to change pieces and how to play the endings, especially those that seem even or calm, and what are often the most difficult to handle. I am confident that anyone who studies these videos will be able to improve their level considerably in this important strategic facet of the game of chess.
