Description:



133 pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") issued in black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Translated by Mary Lasher from the Russian edition. (Lusis: 1113) 1st British edition.



Knight Endings is the fifth volume to appear of Averbakh's great classic series on the endgame. The original Russian edition quickly established a world wide reputation - these are the endgame books Fischer had sent to him during the world championship match. The English translation has been updated and is by far the most complete work on knight endgames published. Every one of the 267 examples has its own diagram. In both matches and tournaments, games are often adjourned at the moment that the ending is reached. It is then that any player without the most authoritative work to refer to puts the player at a great disadvantage and is in danger of throwing away both half and whole points.
