150 Historical Chess Endings

Fifty-two endgame experts were selected from the over-the-board players. Their 150 best over-the-board, theoretical and composed endings got new annotations.

Great innovators are Philidor, Lasker, Botvinnik and Kramnik. Philidor played the first recorded endgame of acceptable quality. Lasker used endgame technique as a weapon. He approached perfection in some games. Botvinnik scored wins and saved games by superior analyses of adjourned games. Kramnik applies all aspects of struggle and prophylaxis with great talent.

Other experts from the list of fifty are Tarrasch, Rubinstein, Capablanca, Euwe, Reshevsky, Keres, Smyslov, Petrosian, Korchnoi, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov.

The endings are a small selection from a series of thirty books on chess players as endgame artists. This oeuvre was written in Dutch from 1993 until 2004 and contains 1846 pages (sold out with me).

The file diverts from the usual order in two ways:

A. Players are rank ordered by year of birth.
B. The round number has been used for the follow-up of the endings by the expert. (written by Jan van Reek)
