Summary

A unique instructional chess book that aims to help intermediate and advanced players improve their command of one of the most difficult aspects of playing chess - strategy. It does so by offering a large number of examples, carefully selected by the author, German grandmaster Karsten Müller. While there are many books and software programs available to assist chess players in improving their tactical ability, there are relatively few that focus on strategic and positional considerations. And, as most chess instructors and players know, it is much more difficult to teach and learn strategic concepts than tactics. Topics include: Good and Bad Bishops; Domination; Outposts; Undermining; Opening the Position; Blockade; Improving Piece Placement; Prophylaxis; A Second Front and The Principle of Two Weaknesses; Counterplay; Positional Exchange Sacrifice; Simplification; and Weak Color Complex along with targeted exercises.
