Overview

Do you instinctively know what to do in every type of chess position or are you often uncertain about how to proceed?

Wouldn’t it be really useful to know the best chess strategies and to recognise when they should be used?

In this book Sam Collins examines key games from both the classical and modern eras. He analyses the major strategic ideas that have stood the test of time and notes their considerable influence on his own games. Studying classic examples from great players allows us to create a personal library of standard ideas. This helps us recognize key positions, making it easier to determine the most effective ways to attack and defend. Crucially, it helps us find the right path much more quickly than we would by relying on calculation alone.

* An essential guide to chess strategy

* Covers opening, middlegame and endgame play

* Ideal for players of all levels

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
So it’s an eclectic and, as the author says, ‘quirky’, collection of mini-essays on various features of the middlegame, written with a lightness of touch and pleasing dash of self-deprecation. I liked it.

- Chess Scotland

This book was very readable and the author was able to convey his ideas in a method that should enable the reader to better his chess. The text and examples are clear and to the point. I highly recommend this book to players in the 1500-2000 range and feel that it will not only improve their game but increase their enjoyment of chess.
