Tim Sawyer illustrates practical chess endgame strategy from games played vs intermediate players. This book has 87 games and 100 diagrams. It shows decisions players make in endings when they might be short on time. This book is purely for entertainment value.


This book is part of the author's chess strategy series taken from 2650 unrated 10-minute rapid games vs Guests on chess.com. Tim won 2500 games. I drew 38, and I lost 112 games over the past year. He won 300 short games in less than 10 moves. The better players lasted longer and some are covered here. 65 games are wins. 22 are drawn. Opening theory and endgame knowledge help your play, but tactics win most games.
The author uses strategy for many comments to explain what's going on. He follows any of these steps. 1. Describe the current position. 2. Imagine how to improve it. 3. Plan how to get there.
Tim picks a key position every few moves to make a comment. His plan is for you to browse through the book, look at the diagrams and read the comments with ease.
For those who prefer to read quickly, you can skim through the book from diagram to diagram. Note the change from the previous diagram and read any notes that interest you.
Sometimes a line of chess engine analysis is added. You may wish to work out those lines in your head, or just note that there was an alternative way to play and keep reading.
Tim Sawyer played chess for 50 years. As a Postal Chess Master, his usual opponents were rated 1800 to 2400. However, opponents in this book are often lower to intermediate. Tim's peak Internet Chess Club blitz rating was 2492.
The author assumes that you can read algebraic chess notation. The diagrams have White at the bottom of the board. Thank you for reading. Enjoy this one!
