Basic Endgame Knowledge

Basic Endgame Knowledge consists of positions well-known to endgame theory, the result being a draw or a win for either side. Studying the endgame theory can be cumbersome, especially if you don’t know where to begin and how to get a basic overview.

I have developed material that provides such an overview, in almost every endgame piece configuration. For inspiration, check my Theme Sessions.

Notice my distinction between Sharp Endgames and Basic Endgames: the former are positions that have not (yet) established themselves as part of the existing endgame theory. Sharp Endgames are positions that must still be played out. Check out my Sharp Endgames Figure for a visual overview between the two.
