When Do You Reach An Endgame In Chess?

When Do You Reach An Endgame In Chess?


  1. the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming the fog is coming

  2. The end game start when i move the first piece on the chess

  3. I think it's an endgame when there's only pawns and 1 or 2 pieces on each side left on the board

  4. For me it's when there are almost no restrictions for a piece to move

  5. Endgame is when the king is safe enough to move around the board

  6. As a 600 who is damn sick of traps involving queens early game I always make sure to trade off immediately

  7. For me it's when most of the pieces are developed, and now you just focus on checkmating and not devolving or winning pieces.

  8. For me an endgame starts when both you and your enemy has taken 1/4 – 1/2 of the boards pieces

  9. When you don't if the opponent gave you a check

  10. When theres 6 peieces in total on the board including the kings

  11. It is when you have 4 rule Applied 1. You have less than 10 points 2. Made 25+ moves 3. You have at least a pawn if you don’t a rook can counter it 4. 5 king moves

  12. It’s an endgame when at least half of both teams’ pieces(maybe excluding pawns? Definitely matters) are traded away, like maybe the opposing team has a knight, a bishop, no queen, and one rook while you have a queen a rook and a knight, that’s what I consider an endgame

  13. For me endgame starts when there are only pawns and 1or 2 other pieces are left and u can safely bring you king in the center'

  14. I always ask my opponents if they are "down to clown " while offering extremely early queen trades at every chance

  15. I've always found the Endgame to start when you can declare a solid objective (other than simply trying to checkmate) and the number of variables has shrunk to 1 or 2.

    Basically when the thinking switches from "If this then that to open this to take that but maybe this instead of that etc etc etc" to "if I can get this piece to here than I win"

  16. I say end game is more 3/4 of the material is traded, and or its safe to move ur king closer to the center

  17. The end game starts when I can calculate the position lol.

  18. The Endgame starts when I subconsciously lean forward while playing the game

  19. When I reach a winning number of pieces (don't bully me im 600) I trade pieces as much as I can, usually that and the number of pawna helps me see the endgame or mid game differemce

  20. honestly if you can safely move your king thats an endgame right there

  21. Endgame when you have less than 8 pieces and also the enemy

  22. When you have to 2-3 pieces other than pawns.


  24. I normally switch to an endgame mode when 2-3 minor pieces have been traded and when the rook duo is now active ♟️

  25. for me, end game starta when you see a good offence to opponent king

  26. Good philosophy, I always fuck up middle game, storing opening, weak middle game and then endgame good.

  27. Let's say down to 14 points of material and/or 3 pieces left, excluding the king and pawns, so 4 pieces = late middlegame.

    2 rooks and a minor=13 points, endgame

    1 rook and queen a piece 14 points 2 pieces

    2 rooks and a queen 19 points but 3 pieces = endgame

    Queen and 2 minors, 3 pieces = endgame

  28. For me it's when either side has lost 15 points worth of pieces.

  29. How to know if its endgame: atleast have 1 knight dead and 2 bishops dead and some other pawns. or 1 bishop dead and 2 knights dead with some pawns too, your queen can be dead alive or traded, one or two rooks cause yes

  30. Endgame is super tricky! One mistake will cost you a life

  31. i think endgame start where there is no opening that explain your chess position

  32. Ye I always am winning by middlegame usually but gets knocked out in endgame

  33. Ussually i say its endgame when there are less than 2 back rank piece and there are almost no good move

    Ye i think thats bad ngl :/

  34. The endgame starts when 1 rook is developed

  35. Personally, I think an endgame starts when you reach a point where it is relatively safe to activate your king

  36. I always think of the endgame likes this, has my primary objective shifted to pawn promotion? If your win condition is promotion you are probably in an end game.

  37. King activation might be a endgame thing, the more pieces get traded, more active and powerful the king can be

  38. I have 5 stages in a chess game

    1-book moves: moving pawns to the center, moving knights and challenge a pawn in the first 2 moves

    2-openings: the most openings are 4 or 6 moves


    4-endgame territory: alot of pieces are gone the side that has a better position and more material is going to win in the endgame here


    and the 4th stage explains how I know when an endgame starts

  39. I guess when both players stop using pre-game planned moves although if u pre move everything like hikaru there would be no endgame which is a flaw for this definition but it’s the best I can think of

  40. Not a single “we’re in the endgame now” reference in the video or comments so far.

  41. The endgame starts when you are no longer fine with trading pieces. If you are trying to end the game with 2 rooks, 2 knights, and a bishop then you're going to get cluttered up really fast.

    Or I like the other suggestion, when it makes sense to move your king off the back rank.
