Getting My Endgame On

(The post title was inspired by this post).

I love Chessbase's endgame tablebases and use them a lot for analysis, but sometimes (e.g. when traveling and studying a book) I don't have access to them. So I was pleasantly surprised to just stumble upon this website, which makes tablebases for endgames with up to 6 pieces available online. Cool beans.

Awesome. Now we just have to memorize it.

Thanks for getting that link on.

I wonder if I could learn from tablebases. I'm pretty book-oriented.

LEP: done!

reassembler: I'm fairly book-oriented too, but I use tablebases to check my own analysis when I try to figure out complex endgames.
