Alexey DreevSample pages (pdf)
The author's aim in this volume is to improve the tournament chess player and professional alike in their ability to evaluate and execute crucial and hard-fought practical endgames - either in converting a winning position or holding a draw.
This book will also sharpen the player's overall cognitive competence in practical situations, where the normal laws of endgame theory have little or no value. Dreev accomplishes this by providing categorized and detailed examples with clear commentary from his own tournament games, as well as from other Grandmasters' games at the elite level.
Alexey Dreev has, for the past three decades, been regarded as one of the most tenacious and consistent chess players in the world. His results speak for themselves, including, but not limited to, the World Blitz Championship Title, Gold Medals at the Chess Olympiad with the Russian national team, World Championships Candidate Tournaments, and numerous 1st place finishes at tournaments at the elite level such as Wijk aan Zee and Biel. Even more importantly, with respect to this book, Dreev has been able to draw from his experiences as a pupil with Mark Dvoretsky.
