051 How to Study Endgames (for Club Players) with IM Yuriy KrykunMar 08, 2023
Like many areas of chess, it can be difficult to study endgames.
There’s an ocean’s worth of books and courses on the subject.
But where to begin?
To help me simplify this subject for club players, I’m excited to bring IM Yuriy Krykun back on the show.
For starters, Yuriy is renowned as one of Chessable’s top course creators (his Dynamic Italian course is one of my favorites!)
Plus, from years of coaching amateur students, Yuriy understands well how to teach endgames in a practical way.
In this episode, we discuss:
- How to boost your motivation to study endgames (if, like me, yours is low!)
- What’s a good percentage of your study time to spend on endgames?
- Should you focus on practical or theoretical endgames?
- Why you may not need to study endgames at all!
