Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-19-12  vinidivici: Nice defense from Lutz.

Lutz applied the "Cochrane Defense " method, he must be know about that.

Its an easy draw.

Nov-20-12  vinidivici: In case you are wondering the defense, check the diagrammed positions exactly at the end of the move 81 and 91.

Actually, it would be lasting if Lutz didnt change the method to "7th rank defense".

100...Rg4 (good move) is the cause.

But if someone want to try irritating the opponent, Lutz could do the 100...Kg3

101.Rg7+ Kh4
102.Bd4 Kh5
103.Ke4 Kh4 and saying "you dumbass, just roaming my bottom back and forth, Mate me man, you got bishop!"

Nov-20-12  SimonWebbsTiger:

Iryna Zenyuk (energia) quotes this game as an illustrative example in part 2 of her article.

Lutz has written a pretty good book on endgames.
<'Endgame Secrets' by Christopher Lutz, by contrast, is definitely a book for more advanced players, perhaps 2100 and above. It consists of 45 games, most of them deeply annotated (6-7 pages is not uncommon towards the end). Lutz is a specialist on rook-and-minor-piece endings, of which there are 20. I used this book briefly with another master, and found it fascinating, although we did find a serious error in one of the games (sorry, but I can't remember which one!). Almost all the principles of endgame play (and many exceptions) are found here, although it takes careful study to absorb them in depth.> (John Watson's review in TWIC 26.)

Nov-20-12  vinidivici: <Simon>

I just want your opinion seems like you are a seasoned player.

I never read Endgame Secrets by Lutz.

And is it any better than Dvo's Manual Endgame?

Any thought?


Nov-20-12  SimonWebbsTiger: No. Actually, I would recommend Lutz's book after Dvoretsky's manual! It is one of those books which require endgame knowledge since Lutz sets numerous, difficult exercises in his book, eg. he will give the bare score of a game and ask the reader to annotate it.

It's an excellent book, that said.

Dec-09-12  vinidivici: < I would recommend Lutz's book after Dvoretsky's manual! It is one of those books which require endgame knowledge >

You are right. Luckily i am one of those people that have endgame knowledges. Good suggestion though...
