Complete chess strategy/ Volume 1 First Principles of the Middle Game Here is the major work on strategy and tactics in modern chess, especially as it applies to the all important middle game, lucidly written by an internationally known Grandmaster. The author tackles the problem, faced by every chess player, of how to create worthwhile plans and then how to put them into operation. To facilitate this process, undoubtedly the most important in chess, the pieces are dealt with individually and Pachman demonstrates the types of positions which are ideally suited to maximizing the potential of each piece. The reader will obtain a thorough grounding and good basic understanding of the long-term ideas necessary for the successful formulation and completion of a plan. In addition, a careful study of this book will enable all players below master strength to assess positions better than they do at present. These ideas are the same as those that enable Karpov, apparently so effortlessly, invariably to post his pieces on their best squares, so that they co-operate with one another most effectively. Ludek Pachman, the famous dissident Czech grandmaster, has participated in many major international events since World War II. John Littlewood, the English international, has capably carried out the translation.
