Endgames are when most of the pieces have been taken and there are only a few pieces left on the board. In the following examples you will learn how to queen pawns and much more.

13 KING AND PAWN The objective of this endgame is to keep the king as far in front of the pawn as possible. This creates a barrier so that you r opponents king cannot capture your last pawn. Back to contents Whites pawn is now a queen

14 KING AND ROOK With a king and a rook the rook acts as an electric fence so that the opponents king cannot advance up the board. Then you try to position your king opposite your opponents. When this position has been reached check the opponents king with your rook. This forces the king backwards. Repeat the process until you have achieved check mate. Back to contents

15 KING AND QUEEN With a king and a queen you can use the box method to limit the number of squares that your opponents king can go to. Eventually you will come to a position where the king is in the corner and it has only two squares that it can move back and forth on now is the time to bring your king in. To finish the game you have to get your queen next to your opponents king so that it can’t move with your king protecting the queen. Back to contents
