There are many great endgame books on the market, and almost all of them deal with the kind of technical positions which closely resemble theoretical ones. Transferring complex and complicated endgames into theoretical positions is often what we need to do in chess, and for this we use various methods such as making the right exchanges, improving the King’s position, exploiting the power of a passed pawn, and so on. Nowadays, we usually play endgames with 30 seconds increment, and this forces us to improve our mastery of theoretical positions as well as our knowledge of the methods required in complex endgames.
