03_Heavy pieces in action: pure QRR middlegames
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

Heavy pieces in action - creative destruction might finally take its course...

posted at jepflast chessforum forum, Jan-11-07 whiteshark: Final comments

I must draw back a little further.

Last year I found an amazing article from <Alex Angos> about heavy piece middle- and endgames. He wrote a book about it, <Endgame artillery>, 109p, Thinkers' Press (1982). Its unique !!

There are only two other books dealing with similar subjects

Jakow Damski <The Heavy Pieces in Action> (ISBN: 1857440544), which is a presentation of various examples, but not very methodical.

and

J�rgen Federau, Andreas Bachmann, Rainer Seidel <Dame gegen zwei T�rme im Mittelspiel und Endspiel> (Berlin 1993. ISBN 3-9801442-9-1) analysing and discussing only a small subject of Q vs 2R in middlegame and endgame. Very systematic and very good explained / in German only, <highly recommended>!!

So I started collecting QRR middlegames, playing through thousand of games... to get <600 examples> now, commenting and classifying them, e.g. pawn structure, kings safety, occupation of files and rows, passed pawns, queens position, sacrifies and big blunders...

I stopped this work when playing cc games again last year. So I was excited as the our game to the present position.

It would have been a <historical chance>, discussing This Theme deeply here...

Endgame, to keep it simple are games with 2 or less pieces at each side, so Q+R is the strongest endgame -excl. pawn promotion- that exist.

An as there are hundred of endgame books there are only these a.m. two or three about Q+R theme Rest is only small presentations.

So Q+R endings are completely unknown regarding strategic themes or different methods of winning compared to simple rook ending.

Therefore it's natural and <understandable> that the world team is going to play rookendgames that's safe ground, knowing win by method.

I'm in the mood to restart my QRR-project intensively again. Thanks for that!!

Major-piece endings, for example ones with ♕+♖ are notorously decided in favour of the side with the more effective and/or more advanced passed pawn. From the standpoint of modern middlegame theory, the more interesting issue concerns the role of passed pawns earlier in the game. John Watson, Secrets of modern chess theory, p 37.
