En særdeles instruktiv bok om løpersluttspill, og slike som vi kan kjenne godt igjen fra praktiske partier, og flest stillinger med løpere og en god del bønder på hver side. Her belyses "god mot dårlig løper" og andre viktige temaer.

Forordet av GM Romain Edouard:

Being the ‘Editor in Chief ’ of TP, I expected nothing less from such an ex- perienced trainer as GM Grivas! Nevertheless, I was really pleased with how complete and well-chosen the games and positions he presents here are. This publication is an almost exhaustive collection of all you can find about bishop endings – it is ‘ready knowledge’: you will learn hundreds of rules, patterns and key positions. Th e author guides you through the examples in a highly instructive and easy-to-understand way.

Reading the whole book, you should focus on two important issues. Th e first, a temporary one; your knowledge of theoretical positions. Te m p o ra r y because this requires refreshment over time, depending on your memory. This is normal - even the best GM’s in the world need to recheck many theoretical end- games from time to time.

The second, a permanent one; you will gain a general understanding of bishop endings that will give you a considerable head start in reproducing them in your own games, without the extra eff ort usually required. That is, if you work enough on the issues that you were struggling a bit to understand!

Some of the exercises are also surprising - and I mean in a positive way! Again, I believe they are presented in the most instructive way – so take your time to understand the ‘maze’ of these bishop endings.

All-in-all, I was delighted to edit this book – and I am looking forward to the author’s next epic publication, with new pieces of the chess board being cov- ered. Thank you, Efstratios!
