Endgame Essentials You Need to Know! Volume 2 by Surya Ganguly
Test yourself in Rook + Pawn vs. Rook Endgames
The first volume of Demystifying Endgames deals with the essentials of rook versus rook and pawn endings, covering topics like Lucena, Philidor, Vancura, and theoretical cases with rook against rook and pawns on f- and h-files. Grandmaster Surya Shekhar Ganguly presents several guideposts to navigate through the tricky waters of these theoretical endings.
In the present volume, he brings more positions - many from top-level Grandmaster games - to help you with (a): assessing your understanding of the concepts discussed in Volume 1 and (b): complementing that understanding. Thus, about 70% of the material discussed here is the application of ideas established previously, and the remaining comprises rich examples that do not yield directly to any known rule. Staying true to his philosophy that comprehension and confusion are two sides of the same coin, Surya reiterates the importance of staying alert and warns against the dangers of using theory as a crutch.
