Creators GM Gabuzyan Hovhannes

“Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.”Jim Rohn

In endgames, knowing the fundamentals counts.

For instance, just by knowing the concept of opposition and the square rule, you can accurately predict the outcome of almost every King and pawn vs King endgame. 

Similarly, in Rook endgames, a few important theoretical positions and concepts make it so much easier to play this type of ending.


This course is all about building your fundamentals. It focuses on specific endgame positions and ideas you must know.

These include important positions from pawn endgames, Rook endgames, Queen vs pawn endgames, among others.

As you grasp and apply these fundamentals, you’ll get faster and more accurate at making decisions in the endgame.
