Winning Chess Middlegames addresses the often ignored but extremely important topic of pawn structures, divided into four main types: doubled pawns, isolated pawns, hanging pawns and pawn majorities.
With its highly accessible verbal explanations and deep analyses of top-level games, this book helps you to solve the basic problems of the middlegame: space, tension and initiative.
Club players studying Winning Chess Middlegames will:
- greatly enhance their middlegame skills
- develop an accurate feeling as to which particular positions suit their style
- acquire new strategic and practical opening knowledge
Ivan Sokolov explains matters profoundly, honestly and objectively, and includes lots of inside stories from top-level chess, neither sparing his colleague grandmasters nor himself in his comments.
