Owing to Rapid Chess where the games will have to be decided at the last 2 minutes, there is little scope for players to practice their endgame play. Hence Thomson Chess Club is organising the 2nd Endgame League where each week a prescribed endgame position (near equal for both sides) is introduced for both players to play the position out. Each player will get to play both White and Black of a position.

Time Control is 45 minutes per side, which is ample time for players to assess, create a plan and play the position without the rush of time. This I believe will enhance the player's understanding and change their mindset when studying the endgame.

All games start at 8pm to allow players ample time to get to Thomson CC. Only members are eligible to join the league.

We hope to start on January 25 and resume after the Chinese New Year season on February.8 onwards till end March.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 players with the best scores. Note that you can skip games if you inform me 1 day in advance so you  will not be paired.

Interested players in the Endgame League please email me at You can also sign up at the Thomson CC Club Championship.
