However, the endgame, due to the small amount of pieces on the board is the phase of the game where the importance of this concept is magnified as each piece assumes greater importance. Therefore it is no mere coincidence that all World Chess Champions have elements of domination in their endgame play. By reviewing these examples, it is my hope that you will become more alert and more aware of the domination possibilities in your own games.
DOMINATION themes can occur in several different types of endgames
- Bishop Pair – Steinitz, Kramnik, Anand, Carlsen
- Bishop Ending – Karpov (Hansen)
- Rook Endings – Lasker, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian, Karpov, Kasparov
- Rook + Bishop v Rook + Knight – Fischer, Anand

Foxy 180: Domination Studies Bernhard Horwitz for the Tournament Player Vol 3 (DVD)
Bernhard Horwitz was a German master and chess writer. He went to school in Berlin, where he studied art. From 1837 to 1843, he was part of a group of German chess players known as “The Pleiades”. He moved to London in 1845. His best chess result was winning a match against Henry Bird in 1851. He played in the first international chess tournament, London 1851, but he is best known for being the first pioneer in problem and endgame composition. Horwitz’s Chess Studies (1851), co-authored with Joseph Kling was an important work at the time. Kasparyan’s “DOMINATION” features 70 of his studies, often being the first to use a theme which was later developed with greater depth and finesse by composers that followed.
