Endgame Studies

Can endgame studies improve your play?

But more importantly, I find endgame studies enjoyable. The best ones feature a nice, sharp point, where you suddenly get what the author is trying to achieve.

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
