Endgame

In the endgame screen you can see the result of all endgames with 6 pieces or less. The GWD endgame databases are unique. These databases not only know if an endgame wins, but also in how many moves! If there is only one winning move, you see a red square with a plus sign inside. This way you can see quickly if the endgame is 'sharp'.

At the top of this screen, in the second section, the result of the endgame is displayed. If there is only one winning move, the background of this section becomes red. The result is from the point of view of the color to move. For the result the following symbols are used: (+) Won, (=) Draw and (-) Lost. In the third section the depth of the endgame is displayed. The screen shows all possible moves. To the right of the move you can see if the move is won, lost or draw. At the bottom of the endgame screen you see the statistics. The statistics shows how many moves are won, how many moves are lost and how many are draw.
