Summary:

Have you ever met a very strong endgame player, that is not so good overall? I haven't. Is that a coincidence? I don't think so, and there is one very good reason for that. Without a solid understanding of how pieces work together on the most fundamental level, you can't play middlegame or an opening to the FULL CAPACITY. How do you acquire that skill set? The short answer is by studying the ENDGAMES. The problem is... Most club players focus solely on theoretical endgames. Those are the positions from that 800+ page endgame manual which require A LOT of memorization. That means you need a truckload of time. Even after memorizing those there is no guarantee you'll retain the information and recall it when it arises in one of your games. And the worst part, what if it is slightly different from what you've learned in the book? Then you're officially stuck.

I know it sounds awful. That's why I want to show you a much better way. This course has a very different perspective on improving your endgames. Instead of taking a usual route of memorizing hundreds of positions, you'll learn the key endgame themes, strategic plans, and ideas. That’s a far more efficient way of studying endgames because in chess the endgame and strategy are always interconnected, following one another.

In this 10-hour "university level" course, IM Mat Kolosovski provides you with the full arsenal of all the necessary tools to medicine practical endings. By learning those 5 endgame themes and applying Mat’s thinking models you'll be able to maximize your over the board performance in no time! Here are some of the strategies you will learn:
What are the most common weaknesses and how to exploit them specifically in the endgame?
King's Activity and how to use this very important principle to get an upper hand in all your games
How to use the imbalances to turn the tables on your opponent; what to pay attention to and what to look out for? [this is the most important and misunderstood theme for the club players]
How to convert your endgame advantage into a clear win - the most common mistakes to avoid. It is never easy but once you learn the thinking mechanism you'll find your game elevated to the next level.
The practical approach of defending in inferior positions - a must know for all competitive chess players. This is what separates IMs and GMs from the rest of the field.
If you ever wanted to learn how to become a world-class endgame player and start cracking endings subconsciously on an AUTOPILOT here is your real chance!
And most importantly, not only your endgame will improve, and your winning chances will rise, but also, you’ll become a much more solid middlegame player with better opening awareness.
