the Correct exchange In The Endgame “In the Informant 120 I published an article “Going for a pawn
ending — calculate the right exchange”. the Correct exchange In The Endgame Having received much
positive feedback, I considered writing a book on this subject: how to decide about the transition to a
pawn ending. However recently an excellent book “Liquidation on the Chess Board” has been written
by Joel Benjamin and this persuaded me to reconsider the general concept and change the subject to
the exchange of pieces in the endgame. When should we exchange a piece in the endgame and when
should we keep it? Why is it so important? How to make a right choice?
In this book we examine different types of endings and offer guidance to decide upon the correct
decision. We will focus mainly on the exchange of pieces, not pawns. The exchange of pawns will be
the subject of a separate book. the Correct exchange In The Endgame Going through the instructive
examples and numerous exercises you will see all the important aspects of the piece exchange in the
endgame, and enrich your knowledge and understanding of the final stage of the chess game. Try-
ing to solve the positions, you will certainly improve your decision-making ability and analysing skills”.
