The Importance of Tactics in the Endgame

One of the distinctive traits of a strong chess player is their excellent endgame technique. But is that all about playing some 'dry' moves, making almost no mistakes, or playing without 'unforced errors'? I don't believe so. Good endgame play, which is required to have good technique, is not only that. It is much more! An excellent technique also means that you need to use 'small' tactics when the position allows it or create and use those on purpose to maximize your winning chances or win in an optimal time frame (not too many moves). This series presents those positions from endgames, where 'small' tactics appear, and when accurate calculations and essential decisions are made. Such moments can determine the difference between a whole point, a draw or a lost game!

So, please join GM Misa Pap on this new journey in this series. Your game will step up a notch by understanding and using GM Misa's 'small' tactics!
