At his lessons Alexander Panchenko, following the advice of the world champions J.R.Capablanka and V.V.Smislov, placed the highest emphasis on endgame (without neglecting the other stages of a chess game, for sure). The result was surpassed by all expectations: dozens of grand masters and masters graduated from the school & ndash; Sergey Rublevsky, Alice Galliamova, Ruslan Scherbakov, Svetlana Prudnikova, Tatiana Shumjakina and many others.
The well-known lectures of Panchenko's school have underlain the foundation of this fascinating book on the endgame that will help to increase the playing skills and to achieve higher practical results both for amateurs and professionals.
