Endgame Studies

This page has been retained from the 2023 summer season so these studies can be enjoyed by new readers.

On 22nd August 2023, after a final round of the Ribbands Rapidplay, Paul McMahon had had enough of witnessing our sloppy endgame play (well, for those of us that managed to reach an endgame ……) and treated us to a wonderful rest of evening discussion on endgame studies.

In this position, we have the famous “Saavedra” endgame, that has also been seen a number of other times. Paul shared this as a bonus at the end – click on the 3 vertical dots below the chessboard to take you to a Lichess study with the rest of the endgame positions discussed on the night!
