Permanent pursuit

by Karsten Müller
2/10/2015 – In the opening and in the middlegame the king usually has to run for cover but in the endgame, with few pieces on the board, he can turn the tables around and and threaten his pursuers. However, as he is not particularly quick, the king usually has to be content with pursuing knights and pawns. But sometimes his majesty can even frighten a bishop.

Karsten Müller is considered to be one of the greatest endgame experts in the world. His books on the endgame - among them "Fundamentals of Chess Endings", co-authored with Frank Lamprecht, that helped to improve Magnus Carlsen's endgame knowledge - and his endgame columns for the ChessCafe website and the ChessBase Magazine helped to establish and to confirm this reputation. Karsten's Fritztrainer DVDs on the endgame are bestsellers. The mathematician with a PhD lives in Hamburg, and for more than 25 years he has been scoring points for the Hamburger Schachklub (HSK) in the Bundesliga.
