About this title


Studying the endgame is the surest road to winning, and quick improvement, when playing those protracted or strategic struggles. Purdy shows his wisdom on the endgame from articles collected from his chess publications Australasian Chess Review, Check, and his legendary Chess World, and offers anecdotal stories and great examples on one of the most pleasant ways to learn the last phase of chess, the endgame.

Topics include: The Horwitz Bishop, Bridge Building, and an original contribution by Purdy (A Fascinating Battle Between Rook and Bishop, singled out by endgame expert Karsten Muller in his foreword) are only a sampling of the 19 chapters which are loaded with expert advice.

About the Author:

International Master C.J.S. Purdy was born in Australia and was the world's first Correspondence Chess Champion, and author of many chess periodicals from the 1930s to the 1970s. Ex-chess champion Bobby Fischer called Purdy the best teacher on chess.
