  1. Andrew/John,
    Have watched the taster video from chess academy website and Sam keeps talking about him writing chapters of a technical endgame book (not clear if this is just rooks or not) Is this a qc production or someone else e.g. Chessable?

  2. @JB
    In the longer form he specifies this is indeed a book, to be published alongside one by Jacob on Practical Rook Endings. The two will be published together, with Jacob being likely the last to finish, meaning in his view 2022 is the likely release date.

  3. @Paul H
    Thanks Paul. Did you sign up for a month’s trial and what did you think? Apart from Negi final volume I don’t think I need any more opening books and watching Magnus win game after game in the ending from an equal opening and middlegame position, endgame is where I need to work on. The two Gelfand books are a good start though there’s less about the actual decision making than I thought, more some deeply analysed games.
