Endgame Crash Course with GM Krisztian Szabo
As you climb up the rating ladder, you will see something new…
That one or two tactics are not winning you games anymore.
You group your pieces for an attack, and your opponent sees it from a mile away and defends against it. You regroup again, and your opponent defends against it again.
This goes on for a while. And you enter the phase where the game is actually WON.
The endgame… where you need to be precise and calculating like a machine!
To help you do that, GM Krisztian Szabo is here with his brand-new Endgame Crash Course – a 10+ hour-long video training aimed to up your endgame skills from losing one pawn after another on every move to seeing the “end” after 20+ moves.
What you get inside this training:
- Endgame fortresses explored. In this position, Black played …b4. A natural move. He wants to push the pawn majority on the queenside. White made a big mistake accepting the exchange. Learn about the right move instead.
- Zugzwang in play. When your opponent is already struggling to stay afloat, all you might need is to put the ball in his court again and again. That’s what Pollugaevsky (W) did against Geller (B) in this game.
- Pawn capturing miss. Do you really need to capture that pawn? Maybe not. GM Szabo shows you why you need to find the right move in your endgames without being a mindless pawn grabber.
If you have been struggling with your endgames, this might be the right course for you.
