Mark Dvoretsky

Sample pages (3rd edition) (pdf)

Renowned Russian chess coach and author Mark Dvoretsky has written what is surely destined to be a standard treatise on endgames for many years to come. He provides, in fifteen chapters, all the important information which you need in order to understand these endgame types with their various material imbalances. Key positions and ideas, which must be learned, are printed in blue with additional material and further examples in black, making it easy for the reader to grasp the essentials of any endgame quickly.

Dvoretsky manages to combine clarity in explaining the strategy of each ending with accuracy in his deep analysis of some positions, often overturning the previous analysis of other strong players. There are chapters on: Pawn, Knight v Pawns, Knight, Bishop v Pawns, Opposite Colour Bishops, Same Colour Bishops, Knight v Bishop, Rook v Pawns, Rook, Rook v Knight, Rook v Bishop, Queen & Queen v Rook endings. The final two chapters cover other material imbalances and General Endgame Ideas. Each chapter ends with a set of diagrammed exercises the solutions to which are in the final chapter of the book.

This fourth edition includes 200 new diagrams, making the text easier to follow and significant revisions of the theory of rook endings as well as other corrections and clarifications.

Mark Dvoretsky has continued to re-examine and re-work the material. Not only working independently, but also with the help of attentive readers, masters and grandmasters, the author's efforts have resulted in what can only be described as the definitive work on endgame theory and practice.

"This book is Dvoretsky's most significant book." - I.M. Jacob Aagaard.

4th edition published 2014, softback, 424 pages.
