King and Pawn Endgame Studies, and How to Compose Them
An interesting new book awaits...
I don’t know if I’ll buy a copy myself - my house is already crawling with chess books - but if my shelves were a bit barer it’s likely that they would soon be graced with this work. The post’s title tells the story, and the link (and the sample pages you can access there) will give you a good idea if the book is your cup of tea. I’ll just say that in addition to the aesthetic merits of of king and pawn ending studies (and the best endgame studies in general), they are great for working on one’s tactical and visualization skills - there’s a practical payoff as well.
[Side note on Wijk aan Zee: If any of you are staying up waiting for my post on round 11, please don’t. Today (Thursday) was a rest day.]
