Did you know chess endgames are one of the club player’s biggest weaknesses? 🤔 Don’t be one of those players! GM Marian Petrov is here to help you convert your endgames into victories with 21st Century Endgame Technique. Get instant access with 35% off. ►

It’s a fact that the majority of club players are weak in the endgame. They don’t usually get found out simply because their opponents lack the necessary skills too!

This is a huge opportunity for you.

Even if you’ve been slightly worse all game, you can turn the tables and win with superior endgame technique.

In 21st Century Chess Endgame Technique, GM Marian Petrov reveals the technical skills you need to squeeze every last half-point from your endgames, how to convert better endgames with flawless technique and how to hold tough positions to a draw.

This video is a free preview of GM Marian Petrov’s new 6-hour course. In this preview, he discusses general endgame principles that will help you no matter what endgame you find yourself in.

This isn’t a highly theoretical “in this very specific endgame, you play this specific move,” but a much more useful and practical guide to approaching your endgames with solid techniques that can help you convert your games into wins. The principles are so important, they can completely turn games around in your favor.

The first important principle GM Petrov covers is piece activity. In the endgame, we aren’t left with many pieces on the board, so we need to make the most of what we have so that they have an impact on the game.

This includes using your king! Look to improve your position. This principle also includes the reverse: try to reduce the activity your opponent gets! When applying these two ideas hand-in-hand, you’re maximizing your chances for a good result.

By looking at plenty of recent games and practical examples from the 21st century, Petrov sheds new light on classical endgame principles, showing you how to excel in the endgame.

  1. After Carlsen's 30.e4, Giri should have played simply 30…dxe4+ 31.Bxe4 Bc6 32.h5 Bxe4+ 33.Kxe4 Ke6!= (not 33…Rc2?! 34.Kf5 with initiative) (D. Fernandez).

  2. My immediate concern was how to reduce the "ENEMIES" activity 🤣
