Commented the GM Jesus de la Villa:

The Importance of the Endgames

In my early days in chess, I often read about the importance of knowing the endings well and the futility of studying the openings. Not only did I come across these arguments in the books of Whitehead, but also in many magazine articles of the time. Phrases like “the greatest understanding of the grandmasters is manifested at the end” and stuff like that. The same or similar treatment was given to strategy versus tactics, things like “grandmasters spend much more time making plans than calculating variants”, etc . It must have been because of this, that I, who during the game spent almost all my time calculating the variants accurately, and outside of it devoted much more to the study of the openings than of the finals, could not even imagine that I would ever become a grandmaster.

The Commission has

In recent times, the predominance of openings has become overwhelming. All great players spend most of their time researching new variants, with which to surprise their rivals and start the battle on the board in the most advantageous (or least disastrous, as you look at it) position possible. But don't be fooled, it's not that it's been discovered that finals are useless, it's that those players have already done their homework and at least, they know the most important finals well.

The Commission has

So if you want to get to a certain level of ELO, a good knowledge of the endings, we're not going to say it's essential, but it's very convenient. Otherwise, what will simply happen is that half points will slip away from time to time, and sometimes whole points, and those gifts will rarely be compensated for by victories at openings, because today, in that arena, even the dumbest man makes watches.

To put it plainly: if a player reaches a certain level of play, theoretical, strategic and tactical, he will lose many points if his knowledge of endings does not correspond to that level, and in that case, studying some endings will be the most economical means of improving his Elo.
