    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.

    Goed, Stevie Wonder en James Brown ontbraken zaterdag bij de loting voor het 32ste internationale schaaktoernooi Groningen. Maar voor het overige heet Johan Zwanepol niet alleen een groot aantal internationale topschakers naar de Martinihal gezogen, zijn Stichting Schaak Groningen had ook een lotingsritueel bedacht dat zeer enerverend uitpakte. Al was het alleen al omdat sommige grootmeesters zich er haast een gebroken been aan struikelden. Maar liefst 54 wereldtoppers zoren samen voor het - in de breedte - sterkst bezette toernooi ter wereld gehouden. Zwanepol was er in geslaagd het gros van hen bij de loting te laten opdraven. Natuurlijk, Robert Hübner liet verstek gaan, want die doet niet aan lotingen, en de Nederlander Loek van Wely was er evenmin omdat hij nu eenmaal op pad is. Of hij is op weg naar een toernooi of hij komt er net vandaan. Of, zoals zaterdag, een combinatie van beide mogelijkheden. Het groninger toernooi doet tevens dienst als kwalificatie toernooi voor de wereldtitel schaken in de rebelse PCA-versie, die van Garry Kasparov. Als rode draad door de openingsceremonie liep dan ook het bekende liedje 'welles' (Kasparov is wereldkampioen) 'nietes' (want Karpov is dat al namens de FIDE) dat in de komende tijd ongetwijfeld alleen nog maar luider zal klinken. Toch bleef die discussie op de achtergrond door het spektakel dat zich deze middag, soms onbedoeld, afspeelde. Daar was het melkflesje, dat door een nog vrij verse vader al meedrummend voor de voeten van de zingende gastvrouw Hanneke Kappen werd geworpen - de baby kreeg vanzelfsprekend de schuld. En daar was de lotingsmachine.
