Sometimes you should look for a draw

Most books on chess endgames only talk about the winning the endgame. It is of course important to win, but it’s just as important to know how to get a draw out of a complicated and otherwise lost endgame.

If you have insufficient material, look at how you may be able to exchange pieces to get a draw. Remember one must be up with a least a rook to checkmate, so if your opponent is just ahead with a knight or a bishop, there is a chance to leave the board with half a point by exchanging pieces of equal value.
