Skákbúðin mælir svo sannarlega með þessari harðspjalda bók eftir GM Aagaard.
The most hated cliché in chess is: And the rest is a matter of technique. In A Matter of Endgame Technique Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard deals with one of the few things chessplayers hate even more – losing a winning position. No serious chessplayer is new to the misery of spoiling hours of hard work in a few minutes…
A Matter of Endgame Technique offers the second-best happiness – the misfortune of others – as well as deep explanation of the underlying patterns of how and why we misplay winning endgames. At just under 900 pages, this hardcover book is actually six books in one, explaining the technical and practical areas of chess endgames plainly, simply and deeply. Endgame theory is well covered elsewhere; this book is all about technique and devoid of material to memorise.
Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard won the British Championship at his first and only attempt. Aagaard has won more awards than any other chess author, and is co-founder of Quality Chess and the online academy killerchesstraining.com.
Aagaard’s students have won school tournaments, national titles, FM, IM and GM titles, international opens, the US Championship, the World Cup, the Candidates Tournament and Olympiad medals of all denominations.
This book will be printed only in hardcover.

“Just about every conceivable endgame topic is covered from passed pawns to overpressing, and even reading just some of this vast and important new work will surely improve readers’ technique.”
„A beautiful timeless book. With countless beautiful, practical and instructive examples. The book is richly illustrated with diagrams so that you can train yourself (without a board) in visualizing variants. What else can I say about it? Well, it may seem like an expensive book, but of course it isn’t given the enormous content.“
