About this deal

Jesus de la Villa's book comes highly-recommended by a coach (a Russian IM) whom I approached about this question.

It guides the reader through all vital and practical endgames, giving the reader a great foundation and general endgame understanding.Also, I like very much the fact the Author spent time into making a very high quality introduction, unlike many other Authors that tends to squash useless stuff into the introduction just because they think no one reads it anyway. Former Women’s World Chess Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk] said she had really enjoyed De la Villa’s 100 Endgames You Must Know and had made flashcards out of the 100 positions.

It does help to play out some of the positions with a real board even if you've done tons of Chessable repeats since the text on paper is just much easier to read for some of the more complicated positions. Please contact us in advance for advice on best procedure, as in certain circumstances we are able to send our courier to collect items. So I am not sure if it is the best book for endgames or if the collection is good but still it is annoying.There's a reason this is a classic, and I have learned so much from it, especially developing a better intuition for some "simple" cases.
