In my first years in the world of chess, I used to read a lot about the importance of a good knowledge of endgames and the futility of studying.
It is true, however, that it was not easy.
I had to start reading it several times, as I found it extremely difficult to get beyond the first one or two chapters. Nevertheless, in the end I managed to absorb some of the material.
Recently, the openings have taken over as overwhelmingly the main area of chess study. All great players spend most of their time researching new variations, in order to surprise their opponents and obtain as large an advantage or as small a disadvantage as possible, before the game itself really begins. But do not be fooled: it is not that these players have discovered that there is no value in studying the endgame, merely that they have already done their homework and at least have a good command of the most important endings.
The fact is that the number of important theoretical endgames, and especially those which are of practical relevance, is much smaller than the field of openings.
Therefore, if you intend to reach a certain rating, I will not say that a good command of the endgame is essential, but it is certainly very useful. On the other hand, if you neglect this part of the game, many half points, or even full points, will now and then elude you.

And you will rarely get wins in the opening to make up for those lost half- points, as nowadays everyone comes to their games armed to the teeth with opening preparation. To put it simply: a player who reaches a certain level as regards theory, strategy and tactics, will lose many points if his mastery of the endgame does not correspond with that same level.
Thus, the study of the endgame will be the most straightforward way to improve his rating.
If his mastery of the endgame is at the same level as his other skills, this effort would not be so profitable, but my experience suggests that this is not the case with most players. Why is this? This tendency to neglect the endgame has grown as the rates of play have become faster and adjournments have been eliminated.
Previously, adjournments allowed deep analysis of positions often endings and helped players to develop their endgame technique and their appreciation of the endgame. Moreover, accurate play in endgames was possible with enough time on the clock, and those games were worth analysing, as they were fine works of art, with the study of which we could improve our overall chess understanding.
Now it is rare that an ending is played with reasonable time on the clock, which leads to real comedies of errors.

Consequently, the analysis of contemporary endgames is often more useful as Laughter Therapy than as a chess lesson. But precisely due to that lack of time on the clock, a good command of basic endgames is even more necessary than ever.
If you are running out of time and do not have a clue about how to handle the position, the game is much more likely to end in disaster. You can change your ad preferences anytime. Upcoming SlideShare.
