150 Chess Endings
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

These games are collected based on an anthology Jan van Reek wrote in which he collected 150 classical games and compositions of 52 different OTB endgame specialists. He explains about the collection here: http://www.endgame.nl/endgame.htm

Because compositions cannot be included as normal games, they are listed below with the author's name, the initial position, and the moves of the study.
