When Do You Reach An Endgame In Chess?

When Do You Reach An Endgame In Chess?


  1. Endgame is super tricky! One mistake will cost you a life

  2. i think endgame start where there is no opening that explain your chess position

  3. Ye I always am winning by middlegame usually but gets knocked out in endgame

  4. Ussually i say its endgame when there are less than 2 back rank piece and there are almost no good move

    Ye i think thats bad ngl :/

  5. Personally, I think an endgame starts when you reach a point where it is relatively safe to activate your king

  6. I always think of the endgame likes this, has my primary objective shifted to pawn promotion? If your win condition is promotion you are probably in an end game.

  7. King activation might be a endgame thing, the more pieces get traded, more active and powerful the king can be

  8. I have 5 stages in a chess game

    1-book moves: moving pawns to the center, moving knights and challenge a pawn in the first 2 moves

    2-openings: the most openings are 4 or 6 moves


    4-endgame territory: alot of pieces are gone the side that has a better position and more material is going to win in the endgame here


    and the 4th stage explains how I know when an endgame starts

  9. I guess when both players stop using pre-game planned moves although if u pre move everything like hikaru there would be no endgame which is a flaw for this definition but it’s the best I can think of

  10. Not a single “we’re in the endgame now” reference in the video or comments so far.

  11. The endgame starts when you are no longer fine with trading pieces. If you are trying to end the game with 2 rooks, 2 knights, and a bishop then you're going to get cluttered up really fast.

    Or I like the other suggestion, when it makes sense to move your king off the back rank.

  12. I personally think an endgame is when the majority of minor pieces are gone and the rooks are activated.

  13. It honestly starts when the king is not just what you protect, but a critical part of the action as well. Once you’re at a point where you have to rely on the king to defend a position, it’s endgame.

  14. when you said "queenless" i strated lgiggling like a litrle kid.

    edit: correcring

  15. For me and endgame starts when the king can activate without any checkmates on him

  16. Endgame is when you have a total of 2 or less major pieces (for example a bishop or rook) and it is really difficult to checkmate without moving your pawns to promote

  17. I think the endgame when it only have pawns, king, and other 2 or less pieces in both side 🤓

  18. "early game teaches you openings and end game teaches you chess"
    -some dude i saw

  19. to me it feels as though the endgame starts when both players are down half their pieces and when the goal of promoting a pawn is within sight

  20. the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming

  21. The end game start when i move the first piece on the chess

  22. I think it's an endgame when there's only pawns and 1 or 2 pieces on each side left on the board

  23. For me it's when there are almost no restrictions for a piece to move

  24. Endgame is when the king is safe enough to move around the board

  25. Endgame starts for me since the opening 🗿

  26. As a 600 who is damn sick of traps involving queens early game I always make sure to trade off immediately

  27. For me it's when most of the pieces are developed, and now you just focus on checkmating and not devolving or winning pieces.

  28. For me an endgame starts when both you and your enemy has taken 1/4 – 1/2 of the boards pieces

  29. When you don't if the opponent gave you a check

  30. When theres 6 peieces in total on the board including the kings

  31. It is when you have 4 rule Applied 1. You have less than 10 points 2. Made 25+ moves 3. You have at least a pawn if you don’t a rook can counter it 4. 5 king moves

  32. It’s an endgame when at least half of both teams’ pieces(maybe excluding pawns? Definitely matters) are traded away, like maybe the opposing team has a knight, a bishop, no queen, and one rook while you have a queen a rook and a knight, that’s what I consider an endgame

  33. For me endgame starts when there are only pawns and 1or 2 other pieces are left and u can safely bring you king in the center'

  34. I always ask my opponents if they are "down to clown " while offering extremely early queen trades at every chance

  35. I've always found the Endgame to start when you can declare a solid objective (other than simply trying to checkmate) and the number of variables has shrunk to 1 or 2.

    Basically when the thinking switches from "If this then that to open this to take that but maybe this instead of that etc etc etc" to "if I can get this piece to here than I win"

  36. I say end game is more 3/4 of the material is traded, and or its safe to move ur king closer to the center

  37. The end game starts when I can calculate the position lol.

  38. The Endgame starts when I subconsciously lean forward while playing the game

  39. When I reach a winning number of pieces (don't bully me im 600) I trade pieces as much as I can, usually that and the number of pawna helps me see the endgame or mid game differemce

  40. honestly if you can safely move your king thats an endgame right there

  41. Endgame when you have less than 8 pieces and also the enemy

  42. When you have to 2-3 pieces other than pawns.


  44. I normally switch to an endgame mode when 2-3 minor pieces have been traded and when the rook duo is now active ♟️
