Topic Purpose

As you play better players, you will discover that they see the tactics that your are trying to develop. You will have to have a superior position to win the game. 

Also, the thing I hate THE MOST in chess games is losing a game in the ending that I should win. These lessons include endgame studies to help you excel at winning endgames. FBCC players are better prepared for endgames than just about anyone else and often win games in the ending that other players lose.
