Product Description
Product Details


"If you really have no patience for endgames, at least read Jesus de la Villa's '100 Endgames You Must Know'." -- Gary Walters Chess "The greatest strength of the book: breaking things down into well-worded chunks of easily digestible information." March Towers Chess Reviews "There's not much to say about it - you just have to buy it and read it! De la Villa does a truly wonderful job of explaining useful endgames in a calm measured manner that is clear enough for any strength of player to understand while still being interesting for stronger players. If you've never read an endgame book before, this is the one you should start with." -- Matthew Sadler, Grandmaster, former British Champion "Former Women World Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk said she had really enjoyed De la Villa's '100 Endgames You Must Know' and had made flashcards out of the 100 positions. One side of the card had the position, the solution was written out on the reverse, and she quizzed herself until she knew all 100." -- Elisabeth Vicary USCF Online "Though Nunn's comments are clear and to the point, I found De la Villa's discussions easier to digest." -- Ted Greiner, British Correspondence Chess Association, Comparing '100 Endgames' with John Nunn's 'Understanding Endgames' "De la Villa does the job quite well. He emphasizes the practical and prefers understanding to memorization." -- John Donaldson, International Master jeremysilman.com "A clear exposition of the most important endgames, with exercises to test your knowledge." British Chess Magazine "The instructional explanations, the many diagrams, and the pleasant presentation make this endgame book an interesting publication for club players with a rating from 1600." Max Euwe Centre, Amsterdam "An excellent book to enhance your endgame skills." -- Johan Hut Gooi-en Eemlander Daily Newspaper "Every clubplayer should study this splendid book." -- B.H. Wilders Nederlands Dagblad "The layout and explanation both stand out for their clarity." CHESS Magazine "I like it a lot. It may be the first chess book since more than 25 years I will study thoroughly." Women International Master Rike Wohlers-Armas "We all admired '100 Endgames' for its clarity and practical value." -- Danny King The Guardian
