Né en 1970, Karsten Müller est réputé être l'un des plus grands spécialistes des fins de partie. N'a-t-il en effet pas écrit, avec Frank Lamprecht, un ouvrage essentiel sur le sujet: "Fundamental Chess Endgames" en plus d'autres contributions telles que sa chronique sur le site internet ChessCafe ainsi que dans le magazine ChessBase. Les DVDs de ChessBase sur les finales en format Fritztrainer de Müller sont des best-sellers. Ce docteur en mathématiques vit à Hambourg, où il récolte également depuis de nombreuses années des points pour l'école locale en Bundesliga.
