Playing strategically in chess means planning long-term goals and, if possible, achieving them within a limited phase of the game. Strategic play is therefore essentially different from combination play, which uses tactical means to achieve short-term goals. It is in the nature of things that a strategy is led to success in small steps that are usually tactical in nature. Strategic and tactical approaches are therefore closely interwoven and cannot be clearly separated. As is well known, all good moves have a strategic purpose and most of them also have tactical elements.

This is the fourth and crowning final volume of Karsten Müller's series of textbooks and practice books devoted to the middle game and end game. Thematically closely related to the previous volume "Positional Play", this work aims to set further priorities in the area of ​​strategic game management and in turn guide the reader to improve and perfect themselves using numerous practice and test tasks. The authors' core topics include prevention, the right exchange, domination, exploiting an advantage, etc. This training course is undoubtedly aimed at advanced players who already have basic strategic knowledge, but who are also willing to work on their skills and develop them optimally through conscientious self-training. The player trained in this way will certainly show noticeable progress in the process of strategic decision-making at the board and will be able to gradually increase his success rate by choosing the right strategy in each case.
