The connection between opening and endgame is a topic that has been hardly covered before in chess literature. By analysing a selection of classic and modern games, the authors explain how to play the typical endings arising from different openings. Volume 2: From the Closed Games covers the plans and playing methods in endings arising from the Queen's Gambit, Indian Defenses, English Opening, and other Closed Games. The material is arranged not by a formal opening classification, but mainly according to the type of pawn formation and the central strategy adopted by Black.
