Desert Island Chess Puzzle Omnibus written by very respectable Chess masters Wesley So, Michael Adams, John Nunn, and Graham Burgess. These facts are the only things that are mine and real. So I don’t mind so much that I’m leaving it all behind. There’s nothing here worth holding onto. If a player offers a draw and their opponent accepts, it is a draw no matter what the position is. Some players would rather offer a draw than mess up a complicated position. Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual written by Mark Dvoretsky, it was immediately recognized by Chess masters as one of the best endgame books ever published when it first came out in 2003. Even one of the best Grandmasters ever in history of Chess has a forward in the fifth edition saying, “…an absolute must for every Chess professional”. Endgame Strategy written by Mikhail Shereshevsky is a masterpiece of endgame strategy. Most books just bombard you with complex variations one after the other, this book is different. Mikhail goes through the correct plan of action for the specific position, only then does he go through a complete analysis for the plan. Gold for the endgame.Winning Chess Strategies by Yasser Seirawan. In this book, Yasser goes in-depth on strategic positions on the board. A must-read for players who want to expand their knowledge and skills on strategic concepts and tactics. Seeing a massive list of books that you’ll get too sometime within the next two decades doesn’t help much. So I tried to include only the best books for each section, otherwise it would be easy to add over twenty books for every category. It’s important to know how we select the books that we included in this list, so here’s the criteria we use.

Müller, Karsten; Lamprecht, Frank (2001), Fundamental Chess Endings, Gambit Publications, ISBN 1-901983-53-6 Speelman, Jon; Tisdall, Jon; Wade, Bob (1993), Batsford Chess Endings, B. T. Batsford, ISBN 0-7134-4420-7 Opposition involves both kings being 1 square apart, essentially staring at each other daring them to step forward, but they can’t! In modern Persian, the word mate depicts a person who is frozen, open-mouthed, staring, confused and unresponsive. The words "stupefied" or "stunned" bear close correlation. So a possible alternative would be to interpret mate as "unable to respond". A king being in mate (shah-mat) then means a king is unable to respond, which would correspond to there being no response that a player's king can make to the opponent's final move. This interpretation is much closer to the original intent of the game being not to kill a king but to leave him with no viable response other than surrender, which better matches the origin story detailed in the Shahnameh. The bishops are best when they are near the center of the board and on adjacent diagonals. This cuts off the opposing king.
