It is not by memorising moves but by understanding the basic positions that a player, of whatever rating, will most improve his endgame play. For this reason, Keres does not simply point out the best move; rather he explains the positions in such a way that the reader’s understanding will lead, almost automatically, to the best move.

Paul Keres (1916 – 1975) was an Estonian chess grandmaster and chess writer. He was among the world’s top players from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s and runner-up in the Candidates’ Tournament on four consecutive occasions. Many chess historians consider Keres one of the greatest players in history, and the strongest player never to become world champion.
