First find the right plan, then the good moves will follow!
With this book, International Master Herman Grooten presents to amateur players a complete and structured course on:
- how to recognize key characteristics in all types of positions
- how to make use of those characteristics to choose the right plan
In Chess Strategy for Club Players you will learn the basic elements of positional understanding:
- pawn structure
- piece placement
- lead in development
- open files
- space advantage
- king safety
- exploiting small advantages.
The author also explains what to do when, in a given position, the basic principles seem to point in different directions. Each chapter of this fundamental primer ends with a set of highly instructive exercises.
