The ability to make appropriate plans produces a more purposeful, effective and stronger chess player. But finding the right plan requires a correct evaluation of the position, which can be done only with knowledge and understanding of the principles of chess strategy. This practical guide will enable the tournament player to recognise the key strategic features of a position, such as advantages in time or space; strengths and weaknesses of the respective pawn formations; mobility, vulnerability, coordination and comparative values of individual pieces. Separate chapters are dedicated to the opening, middlegame and ending. The significance of various kinds of exchanges and positional sacrifices are also detailed and special attention is paid to the need for flexibility and versatility when making plans - or multi-plans.About the Author:
