Find the right plan and outplay your opponent

Chess problem books usually focus on tactics. However, in most cases, when you think about the position during a game, there is no tactical solution. You mainly think about how to improve your own position and weaken your opponent's at the same time.

Experienced chess coach Emmanuel Bricard has put together a practical exercise book with carefully selected and tested training positions that teach you how to develop the right plan for each position. The book is aimed at anyone who wants to:

  • Improve your understanding of chess strategy
  • Know what to do when there is no tactical solution

  • How to apply strategic principles in concrete positions
  • Save time on the clock by calculating fewer variants
  • How to accumulate advantages in different position types
  • And general inspiration through great examples of strategy.

The difficulty of the problems varies, as this workbook is aimed at a wide range of club players. Once you have worked through Strategic Chess Problems, you will spend less time finding the right plans and outplay your opponents more often!

Emmanuel Bricard is an International Grandmaster and a former Master of France. He has been working as a successful chess trainer for over 15 years.
