ENDGAME AND MIDDLEGAME ESSENTIALS
Live Webinar “Endgame and Middlegame Essentials”
By GM Levan Aroshidze
Endgame and Middlegame Essentials
It is a well-known fact that there are three stages in a chess game: 1. opening; 2. middlegame; 3. endgame. It is very important that one be able to play all these stages very well – of course, you need to play the entire game well to score a win.
For the opening stage, it might difficult for one person to have knowledge of all openings (most of them) and play the opening stage well. Still, anyone can play the opening stage well or at least not badly, as the ideas are pretty simple and logical – you just have to develop your pieces as early as possible, play in the centre.
But what about the middlegame and endgame?
Maybe you can develop your middlegame skills by having good knowledge of tactical and strategic ideas and by having a good planning and thinking system.
But then comes the endgame – the so-called ‘ocean’. Indeed, it is an ocean and there are many things about the endgame that one should learn. As the great Capablanca says:
“In order to improve your game, you must study the endgame before everything else”.
Moreover, as I used to say – what matters is the QUALITY of your learning and not the QUANTITY.
Therefore, you just have to learn the key ideas or, in other words, the essentials of middlegame and endgame play. That’s why we’ve invited our new guest coach GM Levan Aroshidze to help you learn them!
What you’ll learn from this webinar?
Endgame Chess Technique
You’ll learn about the must-know theoretical positions and ideas of endgames, like bishops’ endgame and rook v pawn.
It is impossible to study all type of endgame positions, but there are certain important ideas you have to remember and they will become the guidelines, in order to handle any complicated situation.
You’ll learn about pawn structures and important squares. There are many different factors in the middlegame, but pawn structures and important squares are amongst the main strategic factors to evaluate a situation and plan the game.
