8-time Dutch Champion Loek van Wely is here to teach us not about the Philidor position or how to mate with bishop and knight, but how to approach endgames in general. He draws on his own games ("so you can learn from my mistakes!") to tackle fundamentals such as calculation and decision-making in the endgame, but also gives practical advice on topics that include "exhausting your opponent".
To learn how to think about endings from a top player who's faced legends such as Garry Kasparov and Magnus Carlsen. After the series you should be filled with new enthusiasm for one of the richest stages of a game of chess.
Grandmaster Loek van Wely welcomes you to his new video series on endgame strategy. Jan sits there too.
