Recommendations by Professional Players

"Many basic patterns of ending attacks are clearly explained. One should start reading this book as soon as he learns the rules."
Yoshiharu HABU

"For amateur players, it is more practical in their games to make simple brinkmates rather than to aim for difficult checkmates. Basic techniques of ending attacks are well categorized in this book so that they are very easy to understand."
Toshiyuki MORIUCHI

"This book is packed with the essence of the exceptional joy you feel when a ‘clean ending attack’ has worked out by making the best use of the pieces’ abilities."
Yasumitsu SATO

"Some of the problems took several seconds even for me to solve. Ending attacks are the most important parts of shogi. This book will definitely improve your skills."

    2012/10/31 Poster:Eric De Las Casas Recommend rate:★★★★★

    Tsumeshogi trains you how to deliver a checkmate when there's already one on the board, but to win games you have to know how to get into those situations first. Kaneko-sensei's Ending Attack Techniques 200 shows you how to do just that. This is a must-have for any shogi fan.
