With so many resources available there is also an overload of possibilities and it’s often hard to find the right ones for oneself.

A NEW BOOK FROM GM JOZSEF PINTER: 7 MEN

7 MEN - NEW BOOK FROM GM JOZSEF PINTER - COVERAfter the publication of the six volumes of my endings book series, the 7-piece endgames database of the Lomonosov University became available. This is basically a program which determines if the position leads to a draw or can be won by either side – with 100% certainty. Some examples taken in my previous books have been proven wrong, that is why I have decided to write this book in which I deal with and analyze the most well-known 7- piece positions, paying particular attention to rook endgames as they occur very often in tournament games. I have tried to select and examine a few examples for each type of endgame and by doing so I hope I will be able to help my readers to gain insight into the mysteries of endgames.
