Description

Every club player knows the problem: the opening has ended, and now what?

First find the right plan, then the good moves will follow!

With this book, International Master Herman Grooten presents to amateur players a complete and structured course on:

  • how to recognize key characteristics in all types of positions
  • how to make use of those characteristics to choose the right plan

    His teachings are based on the famous « Elements » of Wilhelm Steinitz, but Grooten has significantly expanded and updated the work of the first World Champion. He supplies many modern examples, tested in his own practice as a coach of talented youngsters.

    In Chess Strategy for Club Players you will learn the basic elements of positional understanding: 
       — pawn structure
       — piece placement
       — lead in development
       — open files
       — weaknesses
       — space advantage 
       — king safety
       — exploiting small advantages.

    The author also explains what to do when, in a given position, the basic principles seem to point in different directions. Each chapter of this fundamental primer ends with a set of highly instructive exercises.
