With the 100 most important middle game ideas

The three-time world champion in chess problem solving has summarized the most useful middlegame concepts and knowledge in 100 lessons that everyone can understand.

In this important work, John Nunn devotes himself to the middle game - the phase of the battle in which most games are decided, but also the one that has been treated rather poorly in chess literature. With the outstanding clarity for which he is known, Nunn breaks down complex problems into manageable individual parts.

For example, attacking play shows how to decide where to attack and which special methods can be used to stalk the enemy king. Positional play explains the key structural aspects and the interaction between pieces and pawns. Nunn explains when certain pieces are better than others and how to use this knowledge on the board. The reader will never be short of a plan, whatever type of position may arise.

Each lesson includes two inspiring examples from modern chess, objectively commented and with particular attention to the main instructional points. The ideas for both sides are highlighted so that one gets a clear picture not only of how to thwart typical plans, but also how to develop them.

Dr. John Nunn is one of the most respected figures in the chess world and was one of the world's leading grandmasters for nearly twenty years. He has won four gold medals in Chess Olympiads and finished sixth in the 1989 World Cup. He is a renowned author whose works have won Book of the Year awards in several countries. In 2004, 2007 and 2010 he was crowned World Problem Solving Champion, ahead of many previous champions.
