This book is a goldmine of artistic endgame studies by various authors, including Kasparyan himself. Each one of the 2545 items is packed with chess logic and valuable insights on how to force your adversary to lose material. Many positions that the average player would be happy to bring to a draw are presented as winning, with stunning manoeuvres leading to the unexpected capture of one or more of the opponent's pieces. The content is very well organized, so that you can look up specific scenarios according to which pieces are involved (for example, two knights trap bishop, rook and bishop trap rook, and so on). A real find.
