Two leading grandmasters study a variety of typical practical endgame situations. They provide strategic guidance which is aimed at club and postal players of all levels of experience, either when playing or when deciding what type of endgame to aim for. The authors tackle fundamental issues such as the occasions when a bishop is a better piece than a knight, and those when rook and pawn are a match for two minor pieces. Beliavsky and Mikhalchisin analyze the endgame techniques of many top players, including Kasparov, Karpov, Fischer, Short, Speelman, Dvoretsky, Yusupov, Shirov, Timman and Ivanchuk.
