Out of nothing at all
Compiled by Kinghunt
--*--

This collection aims to collect many of the best played endgames in top level chess, where one side manages to win a simple ending despite having next to no advantage. These endings have claimed a number of surprising strong Russian schoolboys, who have hopefully learned a valuable lesson.

All rook endings are drawn? Think again.
