A Book of Bedtime Pawn Endings - John Beasley



A Book of Bedtime Pawn Endings by John Beasley
A collection of gentle chess delights

What is a ‘bedtime’ chess ending?

You have had a difficult day, at work or wherever, and you want something to help you relax. You want something that looks simple but demands unexpectedly subtle play. You don’t want complicated and artificial positions, and you certainly don’t want lengthy and detailed analyses. You want something which is easily absorbed but leaves a sense of delight.

You will find it here. You will find classic positions, which gave you a thrill the first time you saw them and still give pleasure when you see them again. You may also find positions new to you, with their own subtleties and surprises. And all this will be done with just two kings and a few pawns.

You wanted something to help you relax. You have it.

Brian Gosling
John Beasley's Swan song

John died in early March 2024, and this is his farewell gift to his chess-playing colleagues. It is a notable work on pawn endings, and it is not just
a book at bedtime, as John indicates in the introduction. The author explains some of the basic principles of pawn endings early and then goes on to more complex examples later. Every rank of player from the beginner to the experienced will benefit from this work and it is a bargain at less than £10-00
