9784871874960: Pachman's Modern Chess Strategy

Modern Chess Strategy by the well-known Czech Grandmaster and theorist Ludek Pachman, is widely recognized on the continent of Europe as the standard work on the middle-game. English-speaking enthusiasts now have the opportunity to study this chess classic, ably translated by the Irish International player Alan S. Russell. The aim of the book is to help the player to recognize the characteristic features of a position and to plan his campaign accordingly. The author begins with an examination of the individual pieces and then discusses the problem of the center, material and space advantage on a particular section of the board, pawn formations, and some general problems the chess struggle. Illustrations are drawn from games spanning many periods of chess, with a predominance of examples from recent tournaments, many of them the author's own games. Good books on the indeterminate stage of chess between openings and endings are rare. Ambitious players wanting a practical guide to the middle game will find that Ludek Pachman's great trilogy, which is completed with this volume, stands in a class of its own. “A careful study of this well translated book can hardly fail to improve the readers standard of play." Scottish Chess Association. " . . . it has come to be rated as a standard work, and the English edition should be all the more welcome and useful.” New Statesman.

About the Author:

Ludek Pachman was born in Bela pod Bezdezem, Czechoslovakia on May 11, 1924. Pachman's first big break came at an international tournament in Prague in 1943 with Alekhine and Keres. Pachman came to watch and to play in a subsidiary tournament. When the subsidiary tournament was canceled, Pachman was given a spot in the main event, taking the place of a player who could not make it. Pachman finished in the top half and created a sensation. Ludek Pachman became one of the world's strongest chess grandmasters and one of the world's greatest writers and teachers of the game. He won four zonal tournaments and played in six Interzonal tournaments, possibly a record, but he missed qualifying to the World Champion Candidates Tournament by a half-point twice. Pachman played eight tournament games against Bobby Fischer. Pachman made an even lifetime score against Fischer, +2 -2 =4. His most famous game is his win over Bobby Fischer in Chile in 1959. Ludek Pachman died on March 6, 2003 in Passau, Germany.
