Methods of playing endgames differ from playing the main parts of chess games. The player should look forward deeper for a greater number of moves. A pawn can be more important than a light or even a heavy piece. It is essential to spot quickly, which positions are wins and which ones are draws. One important factor is mating technique in standard endings, it should be learnt before the game (and not discovered during the game).
The course is based on the 3 other courses: Beginners to Club, Chess Strategy for Beginners and Total Chess Endings. We carefully selected tasks that are not so easy to play, but not so complex to study. The material is adapted to beginners, and contains a large number of explanations and hints.
Much attention is devoted to methods to win having an extra pawn. But we also recommend to pay attention to the technique of standard mates (starting with mates by heavy pieces and ending with mates by bishop and knight).
This course is in the series Chess King Learn, which is an unprecedented chess teaching method. In the series are included courses in tactics, strategy, openings, middle game, and endgame, split by levels from beginners to experienced players, and even professional players.
