Today, I’d like to share with you the review of “Killer Endgames Part-2” prepared by the RCA Academy Manager. Mr. Manikandaswamy, an independent chess coach and certified RCA lesson assistant.
Review by Manikandaswamy
The course “Killer Endgames 2”, created by an English Grandmaster and 1998 World Under-18 Champion, Nick Pert, will appeal to a wide audience as it caters to the needs of chess players of different standards. He starts from 1800-level positions and finishes at the highest level.
This course deals predominantly with rooks. The comprehensive analysis offered by GM Pert teaches students the intricacies of rook endings.
This video course contains 21 videos and 16 puzzles. The videos are categorized according to rating standard and puzzles are provided for viewers to make use of the knowledge gained in order to solve them. The video format is entertaining and you can enhance your endgame knowledge in 4+ hours.
The eloquence of GM Pert adds aroma to the course. The explanations and the analysis are really deep and can be grasped easily by those watching.
GM Pert provides an endgame knowledge which is essential to convert a winning position to a win, and also this course focuses on how to deal with the endgames that appear to be destined for a draw.
I would recommend “Killer Endgames 2” to players above an 1800 FIDE rating who wish to acquire endgame knowledge quickly.
For those who prefer visual education to reading, “Killer Endgames Part-2” is an ideal choice for learning about rook endings.
If you would like to purchase “Killer Endgames Part-2”, don’t miss to make use of the special 30% discount by using the code “igor28”. (you save about $4.5)
