Nothing more clearly separates chess master from chess wannabe than winning endgame play. Accurate opening play can be satisfying, and combinations in the middlegame are exciting. But for most chess players, victory is the real finish line. And the endgame is the last lap of the race. Depending on whether or not you command the necessary endgame knowledge, you can spoil hours of planning, or you can enjoy the victory you've spent the whole game earning. You can even pull yourself out of the steely jaws of a "certain" defeat! The best news is that you don't need to memorize thousands of positions, but only a few carefully selected ones. Combine these with the clear and concise explanations in Just the Facts! and you have the "magic key to chess mastery." Just the Facts! boils down all essential endgame knowledge into one volume you can use to win games for the rest of your life. (Unlike opening variations, endgame knowledge is immutable.) The principles of the endgame are very different from those in the opening and middlegame some rules even reverse themselves! Just the Facts! gives you the ideas and the ability to recognize when to apply them. Just the Facts! is the seventh and final volume of the best-selling Comprehensive Chess Course, the series that brings English readers the once strictly guarded and time-tested Soviet training methods, the key to the 50-year Russian dominance of the chess world. The Comprehensive Chess Course can take you from beginner to master.

The right endgame knowledge is the magic key to chess mastery. This book gives you that key! -- World Chess champion Vassily Smyslov
