Chess endings have an immediacy missing in chess endgame or chess difficulties: endings aren't theoretical or composed, yet genuine board positions, the purpose in each online game while the superfluous falls away, leaving basically the basic. José Raúl Capablanca (1888–1942) had little need for remoted inventive thought or compositions — he composed and created chess paintings as he performed. All of his genius — intuitive, tactical, strategic, logical — all of his artwork shines clearest in his endings, as he himself used to be proud to claim, advising others to check them rigorously. "In order to enhance your game," he acknowledged, "you needs to research the endgame ahead of anything; for while the endings might be studied and mastered by means of themselves, the center online game and the hole has to be studied on the subject of the endgame."
The most sensible option to keep on with Capablanca's recommendation is thru this — the single ebook dedicated to his nice endings, 60 whole video games emphasizing the grand finale yet annotated throughout.

Capablanca's 11th online game within the 1901 Cuban championship (which he received, elderly 12) "surpasses any accomplishment by means of such different prodigies as Morphy, Reshevsky, and Fischer." From age 12 throughout the final video game within the e-book (nearly 4 a long time later opposed to Reshevsky at Nottingham, 1936), Capablanca models endgames in stressful match surroundings that appear like gentle, specified tools dreamt at leisure.
Here then is the essence of Capablanca, analyzed for the guide of avid gamers and the excitement of chess connoisseurs. integrated are indexes of openings, topics within the endings, and rivals, in addition to a bibliography and checklist of match and fit play.
