Since I started out with the Weekly Endgame Column in November 2017, more than 10 columns have now seen the light of day. In the first 11 WEC’s, this is what I have covered so far:
- Misc. N endgames (The knight cannot lose a tempo and how to compensate for that) – see WEC #1
- 2N vs. pawn – see WEC #2, WEC #6 and WEC #7. Furthermore, I have added a page with 20 exercises in this endgame on the blog.
- Pawn endgames – see WEC #3 and WEC #4
- N+pawn vs. B – see WEC #5 and WEC #8
- N vs. pawn(s) – see WEC #8 and WEC #9
- R vs. pawn – see WEC #10 and WEC #11
The subject of the next Endgame Column – no. 12 – will be the Troitzky Line in 2N vs. pawn.
Over time, I will cover all areas of the endgame theory – including endgame studies – but in the beginning, the endgame with two knights vs. pawn will take up some space. I have worked a lot with this endgame, and I can say that it is a great satisfaction to fully understand the most difficult endgame there is. Also, to many players, this endgame is a bit of a mystery and difficult to get a grip of – and I will try my best to help out here. Another reason for posting about this endgame is that I think there is a lot to be learned from it.
