Since Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson has solved the world’s opening problems* he decided it was time to turn over a new leaf. This week he’s going to tackle a topic that’s perhaps less close to his heart than move-order intricacies after 1.d4 – the endgame. For roughly an hour and a half Jan will be at your service to answer questions on the final phase of a game of chess. So, whether you’re looking for general advice, aren’t sure how to mate with a knight and bishop or wonder what the famous Vancura position is – Jan’s your man!

And there was no turning back! So, as with the Opening Clinic, the process is simple: leave your question for Jan in the comments section below. You do need to be a Premium Member to have your question answered, but it’s worth it
The show will be live on our Shows page at 18:00 CEST on Thursday 2nd April:
Don’t miss it!
