Tactical Chess Endings: Improve Your Chess by Unlocking the Secrets of the Endgame
Batsford | ISBN 1901983021 | 2003-06-30 | PDF | 224 pages | 4.31 MB

This is my initial book review for amazon.Previous to reading Nunn's opus,I've always assumed endgames were of a strategical nature.Kotov in "Think like a grandmaster" tells a story about Capablanca's endgames.He claims to have met him at some chess event where a lecture was being given about endings.Capas basic claim was that planing the optimum location for the chess pieces in the ending was more important than the tatical variations.One gets the impression that the tatical variations just become automatically apparent once the strategical plan via piece place comes to fruition.Therefore the endgame can be fathomed intuatively with only a minimal effort of analysis.Nunn's book dispells that notion entirely by claiming endgames can be tatical.They can also be strategical like any other part of the game.Many strong grandmasters overlook many combinative possibilities in this part of the,because of such sterotypic thinking as mentioned above.This book can help one approach the ending with a fresh pair of eyes.From a personal perspective I have always over looked opportunities in combinative endgames assuming they do not exist.Now I know better.This book has freed me of such generalized thinking.A paradox I have seemed to stumble across is that apparently simple end games even appear to be more tatical than complex ones.Nunn by accident in his introductory statement seems to have also made a beautiful distinction between strategy and tactics. The former being the creation of plans and the latter being it's execution once it's apparent.The games are classics.Many include ideas such as mates, Stalemates, Promotion, Positional draws,fortresses ect.

Ron Boots is part of the so-called third generation of electronic musicians. The first generation, in the early 1970's, consisted of the EM pioneers and the second generation emerged at the end of the 1970's/early 1980's which included their descendants. In the middle 1970's, Ron was introduced to electronic music through the album 'Timewind' by grandmaster Klaus Schulze. Ron was so overwhelmed by this style music that he decided he wanted to play electronic music himself.
