Chess Strategy (Batsford Chess Book)

Eduard Gufeld, Nikolai Kalinichenko

Every chess player knows that the game is really won or lost in the planning, but finding the right plan requires knowledge and understanding of the principles of chess strategy. In this highly readable, practical guide, a former leading Soviet grandmaster shares a wealth of hard-earned, tactical wisdom. Whether you want to add to your opening repertoire, shore up your middle game or enhance your end moves, you'll find a strategic approach to suit your needs. Evaluate a variety of gambit systems; anticipate the strengths and weaknesses of the respective pawn formations; or assess the mobility, vulnerability, and comparative value of individual pieces. Exchanges and positional sacrifices are also covered. Become a focused, flexible strategist, and take your opponents by surprise every time.
