Endgame Studies

I write about chess endgame studies in two places – monthly (mostly) since 2006 in CHESS and six times a year since 2014 in Schweizerische Schachzeitung with Roland Ott. This latter is, of course, in Swiss-German, as translated by Roland. I am slowly posting my articles for CHESS on this site – use the menu on the left to start viewing them. The articles in Schweizerische Schachzeitung can be seen in the complete magazines downloadable from the Swiss Chess website. Our articles start with issue 7 of 2014.

Some years ago I was pleased to direct a study composing tourney to celebrate the 50th birthday of John Nunn. Select the menu item on the left to view the award.
