|This is the new and substantially expanded edition of a modern chess classic. Upon its publication in 2006, Van Perlo’s Endgame Tactics won the two most prestigious book awards in the chess world, as it was elected both the English Chess Federation Book of the Year and the ChessCafe Book of the Year.|
By chance, in 2013 publisher New In Chess discovered an unexpected treasure trove, a previously unpublished further batch of endgame tactics collected by Dutch correspondence grandmaster Ger van Perlo (1932-2010). In this new edition of Van Perlo’s Endgame Tactics more than 300 fresh examples have been added, making this fourth edition 25% bigger than its predecessors.
Why has Van Perlo’s Endgame Tactics been such a fantastic success? To begin with because it made many regular chess players appreciate for the first time that endings are fun. Secondly, because you always work harder at something you enjoy, it actually improves your endgame play.
You, too, can make the first step towards improving your endgame skills and beat more opponents by learning to love the endgame. Why is it that you usually look at only a couple of pages in any endgame theory book you see? You’ll find out here. Sit back, forget about theoretical endgames, and enjoy the entertainment of real life chess in Endgame Tactics!
