En oppdatert glimrende bok om tårnsluttspill. Nummer 7 av de åtte bøkene i denne serien handler om "typiske tårnsluttspill". Noen av de mer "elementære" ble behandlet i "Mastering basic rook endgames".

Forlagets egen omtale:

Rook endings are the most frequently seen among all endgames. In fact, more than 60% of all endings are rook endings, and the reason is simple: rooks generally enter the game much later than other pieces.

There are a few very important rook endings, ones which we see frequently in practical games. Every player must know how to deal with these situations on the board, for both sides, so knowledge of basic positions and methods of handling complicated endgames are key. And the mistakes of the top players are also extremely instructive and serve as great lessons for improvement in the endgame.

Part 7 of the first FIDE-approved endgame manual, written by 3 of the world leading experts: FIDE Senior Trainers IGM Mikhalchishin, IGM Grivas and IGM Balogh.

A total of eight books will take you step-by-step from king & pawn endgames all the way through to extremely complex and materially-unbalanced endgames.

Due to some minor mistakes (first page of the book is written as "Mastering practical rook endgames", while the header of half of the pages is running as "Mastering basic rook endgames"), the publisher decided to reduce the price.

Fra forfatterens innledning i boka:

In the fi rst book we discussed basic positions and methods for playing both simple and complicated rook endings. Now, in t his book, we w ill discuss typi- cal positions — which means positions that frequently appear in practical play. Knowledge of such positions and the methods of handling them is a third key element of correct play in rook endgames.' Generally we will meet diff erent pawn balances and constructions — there
are more complicated cases and many simple ones — but in all cases we must use the knowledge gleaned from the fi rst book — the knowledge of basic rook endings.

Th ere have been many great books published on rook endings, and especially very useful in a practical way are many of the chapters from the great Mark Dvoretzky and his excellent book Endgame University.

Classic works are also still valid — including Smyslov and Levenfi sh’s ‘Rook Endings’ plus studies by the greatest rook endgame specialist Nikolay Kopaev in Averbakh’s endgame manuals. A fantastic book about rook endings was written by Nikolay Minev, but for some reason it is not widely known.

I, together with my great friend GM Aleksander Beliavsky, wrote three books on diff erent endgames and there are special chapters on rook endings, but in these there was no systematic knowledge, rather just some important issues that were discussed. Now, however, we will try to give our readers a much more complicated and complete picture of rook endgame theory and practice.

Th ere are a few very important rook endings, ones which we see frequently in practical games.
