Practice the Endgame
HOME			  

This endgame practice requires that you download a practice file in PGN format to use with your Winboard and the GNU chess engine. Go to your winboard ini and make sure the set up looks like below to select the GNU engine. With this set up you can select two GNU engines to analyze a position to see how the two engines solve the problem position. Then you can practice against one engine to see if you can solve it. These are hard endgame problems to solve, but the practice you will get makes it worthwhile.
