Description

Rook endgames are the most frequently repeated endgames and also one of the most exciting areas of chess, with mind-blowing tactical opportunities and dizzying nuances available. Unsurprisingly, they have been a major topic in the literature on endings, with a strong focus on established theoretical positions and their fixed logic and conclusions (see the excellent Theoretical Rook Endgames of GM Sam Shankland, published as a sister volume to this book).

Conceptual rook finishes go in a different direction. Focusing on two dozen main concepts, the book explains the mechanisms of rook endings in a novel way, building bases with simple examples, which can be seen even in more complicated examples. The rook endings will still be rich and surprising, as they are for the great ones, but with this book, your understanding of them will skyrocket.
