Endgame Torture

The endgame is my favourite part of the game, maybe because I have spent so much time studying endgames with my Dad. So here’s a game by one of the greatest endgame players, the Swedish Grandmaster Ulf Andersson, in which he tortures the English Grandmaster Michael Stean. Dad says that Stean gave up chess to go into accountancy, and this would probably be more fun than playing Black in this one!
