A Guide To Chess Endings by Max Euwe & David Hooper lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1959, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: EX-WORLD CHAMPION Dr Max Euwe, one of the greatest experts in the end-game, and David Hooper, who has represented England in international matches, have set out to provide a systematic introduction to the study of practical endings. The emphasis is on practical play: the positions are chosen for their didactic value, quite ordinary and probable positions, in contrast to many endgames manuals which contain too many special positions, problems, or composed studies. Such studies may be tactically brilliant, but do little to improve ones understanding of end-game theory.
Here the authors intention is to show the reader how he may acquire a sound positional judgment in this important phase of the game.
