    In the vast ocean of chess literature there are relatively few books about the endgame, and only a few of them can be considered true chess classics. And the most outstanding among the classics — Reuben Fine's book "Basic Chess Endings". Reuben Fine (1914−1993) was for a long time one of the best chess players in the world. As an author, Fine showed himself to be an excellent analyst who understood the full depth and peculiarities of the endgame. Having studied various types of standard positions, Fine established useful rules for practical play and proved himself to be an experienced teacher who, using skillfully chosen examples, was able to teach the reader all the necessary lessons and introduce him to the basic ideas of the endgame. Many generations of chess players in different countries of the world keep copies of “Basic Chess Endings”. For example, Mikhail Botvinnik considered Fine's work the most worthy of all that had ever been written on endgame theory.

895.3 $

RUB

Description:

Handmade sycamore chess set. 

Royal Lux chess is a noble set of large chess pieces. 

The handmade chess pieces are made of wood and decorated with carvings and firing.

The chessboard is decorated with firing, and a chess notation is artistically engraved along its edges.

The board folds in the middle, inside it has trays for storing chess pieces, trimmed with green velvet. Brass fasteners are attached to the board from the outside

This chess of the highest quality not only gives you the joy of playing and competing, but also is an excellent decoration for your home.

When purchasing Royal Lux chess, one should not forget that this board game, from its very appearance in Europe in the middle of the 18th century, was almost immediately classified as "royal". The joy of the noble nobility very soon became popular among senior statesmen, in particular among kings, who, playing chess, emphasized their status as supreme ruler, commander-in-chief, tactician and strategist. Despite the fact that under the influence of the Catholic and Christian churches, some kings officially banned this board game (for example, Louis the "Saint" King of France, Casimir II of Poland, Edward the Fourth of England), it remained in a kind of "underground" and did not lose popularity. According to historical chronicles, even during the prohibition, kings played chess, using this board game to resolve political or military disputes.

The decision to buy Royal Lux chess will be at the same time a decision to join the royal joy, because the word "royal" translates as royal, majestic, luxurious. The latter words are fully consistent with the proposed version of the board game, the elaborately carved figures of which can become a worthy decoration of the royal interior.
