Decision Making in Major Piece Endings by Boris Gelfand

In Decision Making in Major Piece Endings former World Championship Challenger Boris Gelfand discusses his path to decision making in endgames with rooks or queens, or both. The reader will learn the importance of deep analysis, how to implement endgame theory in your games and a lot of details about rook and queen endings. Most endgame books focus on repeating existing knowledge about the basics. As important as this is, rarely do we see a top grandmaster go deep into his own games and extract this amount of knowledge from them.

Grandmaster Boris Gelfand has been an elite player for over 30 years, winning the World Cup, Olympiad Gold, the Candidates and many other top tournaments. In 2015 Positional Decision Making in Chess won the ECF Book of the Year award.

Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard is the only chess writer to win all the major awards for chess writing.

Reaction to Positional Decision Making in Chess:

“The most interesting chess book I have read in the last quarter-century.” Mikhail Shereshevsky in The Shereshevsky Method

“Gelfand is very good – and very honest – at explaining which decisions he could calculate and which decisions he needed to take on the basis of judgment, and how he did that... It adds up to the type of book I love... I think this book has masses to teach any strength of player.” GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

“The most useful decision-making chess guide I have ever read.” GM David Smerdon

“A revelation.” GM Lubomir Kavalek

“Gelfand has given us a superlative book... This might well be the book of the year, and serious students of modern chess practice should not miss out on its lessons.” John Hartmann, Chess Life
