45 Practical Methods to Gain the Upper Hand in Chess
Opening preparation is essential, but for aspiring players understanding the middlegame is even more important. Techniques of Positional Play, an improved edition of a Russian classic, teaches amateur chess players 45 extremely effective skills in a crystal-clear manner.
Quite a few of these techniques will be revelations for club players, as they offer solutions for problems amateurs are often only subconsciously aware of. For example:
• How do you restrict the efficacy of your opponent’s pieces?
• What is the best way to exchange a piece?
• How do you prevent your opponent from opening a file?
• Which rook belongs on the c-, d- or e-file?
• How do you castle artificially?
The techniques are easy to understand and memorize. The authors present a wealth of practical examples and do not burden the reader with unnecessary deep analysis. There is a special training section at the end of the book where you can test your newly acquired skills.
Ukrainian International Master Valeri Bronznik lives and works in Germany. He has written a number of highly acclaimed books on chess, such as '1.d4-Beating the Guerillas'.
Anatoli Terekhin is a well-known Russian chess trainer. He leads a chess academy in Perm.
