The middle game, the vaguely defined phase between the opening and the end game, is the most important and fascinating part of the game for most chess players. Unlike the other phases of the game, which are dominated by theoretical knowledge and systematics, the middle game is where the player's creativity can unfold. The player is constantly challenged to apply the laws of positional action and the elements of tactics to ever new game situations.

It was only relatively late that attempts were made to treat the middle game in a systematic and logical way. Snosko-Borowski's book, published in English in 1922, is considered to be the first to deal with this topic in a thorough analysis. Capablanca once said that it was almost the only book on the subject that he considered worth reading. This classic, published in German translation in 1926, still offers beginners a clear and solid introduction to the part of the game of which the author says: "The middle game ... is the real chess; chess with all its possibilities, its attacks, defenses, sacrifices, etc."

For this new edition, the text has been thoroughly reviewed and corrected, and translation errors and misleading representations have been eliminated. The improved readability and accessibility of the text will benefit all chess students who want to use this textbook to gain fundamental insights into the conduct of the middle game.
