    The Best Book around to make a big LEAP in endgame skills

    In his playing days(1910-1940), this world champion was called the 'the chess machine'; especially for the massive endgame strategy and technical superiority he had over everyone except his world champion rivals. The endgames of Capa and Rubinstein are where to go to learn this aspect of the modern game. And this is who Botvinnik, Fischer and Karpov studied in their developing years (really studied!). Fortunately Dover reprints old classics in well bound cheap editions ($10) - good binding is important since you need to lay the book down flat and pore slowly over these games. Chernev was an ordinary master, and a great American chess journalist; all his chess improvement books are of good standard (Logical Chess is a great book for beginners and weak intermediate players to improve with). This book is for 1400-2400 class players and is worth multiple readings. He culled through many commentators to prepare deep, thorough and accurate notes to the games. I recomend readers generally skip the first moves and set up and start studying from the endgame diagram. One problem is the book is in descriptive notation, which will put off some readers, but it is learnable.
