Denne bog er femte bind i Aagaard´s meget roste og prisvindende trænings serie "Grandmaster Preparation" i seks bind. 

En af verdens førende slutspilseksperter (bl.a. kendt fra Chessbase) skriver dette i forordet:

"Solve your endgame problems with Endgame Play!

I strongly believe in training by solving exercises and Jacob Aagaard is a real master here. I often train my own students using the books from his Grandmaster Preparation series, and they really help on the way to becoming an International Master or hopefully even a Grandmaster.

With Endgame Play Jacob Aagaard has again proved convincingly that he is indeed one of the best chess authors of modern times."

From the Foreword by GM Karsten Müller"

Med fare for at gentage mig selv igen og igen, så er slutspillet et af skakspillets sværeste faser. Ikke mindst set i lyset af den kortere og kortere betænkningstid i moderne turneringsskak. Her kan virkelig hentes mange halve og hele point ved at oparbejde en god intuition for planerne.

Intuition er netop hvad denne bog giver, i 12 kapitler med titler som "Simple Rook Endings", "Complex Minor Piece Endings", "Fortresse" m.fl.  

Du får i hvert kapitel forklaret koncepterne, og herefter skal du løse en lang række øvelser. Gerne ved at spille stillingerne imod en modstander eller en computer. Budskabet er at du kun kan oparbejde din intuition ved hårdt arbejde, der ligner turnerings situationer.  

Min vurdering: har du 1800 i rating eller derover, og er indstillet på hårdt arbejde for at udvikle dig, så kan denne bog/denne serie løfte dit skakspil markant. Selv stærke IM og stormestre kan have glæde af serien.

Om forfatteren: Jacob Aagaard er stormester siden 2007, nu bosat i Skotland. Kreativ direktør på Quality, og anerkendt både som skribent og træner. Har vundet en lang række priser, og er tildelt titlen "FIDE Senior Trainer".

Anmeldelser:

"The biggest problem when trying to train yourself is finding that high-quality material, especially for endgames. Endgame books tend to rehash the same classic examples because original endgame analysis is very difficult to do well. That's why I'm so impressed with Aagaard's 'Endgame Play'. All of the examples in the book have been played in the last ten years and probably 99% of them were new to me. The quality of the analysis is absolutely top-notch as well."

GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

"This is a fine book, possibly the finest of the Grandmaster Preparation series, and it is a book that is well worth your purchase."

John Hartmann (full review)

"This book is a worthy part of this great series and the author shows once again that he has mastered his craft and that he is justly regarded as one of the world's top authors and trainers... An absolute must for any serious chess study!"

Lukas Wedrychowski (full review in German)
