Sergei Tkachenko

A World Champion's Favourite Studies

100 Studies with just one king in the finale.

Sample pages (pdf)

Sergei Tkachenko, a member of the Ukrainian team that won the 5th World Chess Composition tournament in 1997 and which came second in 2000, 2004, 2013, and 2017, has collected 100 studies whose common theme is that white ends up with just one king in the finale, yet manages to win or draw.

There are no more six moves in most solutions so experienced chess players can analyze the positions directly from the diagrams.

Newbies to chess problems will also find analyzing these studies useful. The diverse set of tactical ideas involving a single king in the finale will enable them to gain an understanding of the king's resourcefulness.

Some Of these studies are classics from bygone ages. Others were originally published in the Soviet union or ex-Soviet countries.

Published 2018, softback (pocket size), 206 pages.
