In this enlarged edition of a modern classic (first published in 1991) on the battle of chess ideas, grandmaster Mihai Suba developed the concept of ?dynamic potential? in modern chess strategy. In improving your position on the board the old strategy principles often lead to conflicting conclusions. Suba takes another view on the meaning of, for example, ?bad positions? and ?quiet moves?, and uses a light touch to explain his ideas. With many entertaining and instructive examples the author explores ?the accumulation of potential? as the modern way to get the advantage. A thought-provoking and yet very practical guide.

Mihai Suba is really the first person to discuss dynamics for the chess layman, long before Watson's various books addressed it. His concepts of potential and flexibility have proved very useful in my current practice of chess. The book is heavy in the English and Hedgehog systems, yet also addresses various IQP positions from both sides. The author makes clear he is partial to attacking with the IQP. If one is looking for e4 openings, you may get an Alekhine Defense or two, but no more. Really an excellent book, with much food for thought, a short quiz to test one's flexibility in thinking, and insights that have stuck with me for years.
