Most of my students (especially, the beginner-level players) often ask me “Are there any rules for playing the endgame”. They usually have an advantage or a winning position in the endgame, but unfortunately fail to recognize it.

Today our guest coach CM Charles Campbell will explain how to identify or recognize a winning endgame. Additionally, he will offer some really useful endgame tips. If you had problems converting your advantage into a win or don’t know what plan to follow, these six tips will be very handy for you. 🙂
