Description - The Survival Guide to Rook Endings by John Emms

For all chess-players - from beginners to grandmasters, and whatever their style of play - one thing is certain: rook endings will arise in a great many of their games. Yet it is precisely in this area of the game that many players give away hard-earned points, either through lack of knowledge or inadequate understanding. Previous books on the subject have been extremely technical and theoretical, and therefore of little use to the practical player. This one is different. John Emms provides the essential specific knowledge, and explains the key concepts, that will enable readers to find the right plan in most common types of rook ending. Rook endings are reached in roughly one in five of all chess games. This volume provides everything you need to know to play rook endings successfully. The author is a battle-hardened professional player, himself the veteran of hundreds of rook endings. (5 3/4 x 8 1/4, 160 pages, illustrations)
