Beschreibung

'Ever wondered why grandmasters take only seconds to see what\''s really going on in a chess position?
\r\n
\r\nIt\''s all about structures, as Ivan Sokolov explains in this groundbreaking book.
\r\n
\r\nWinning 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.
\r\n
\r\nWith 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 inititative.
\r\n
\r\nClub players studying Winning Chess Middlegames will:
\r\n
\r\n- greatly enhance their middlegame skills
\r\n- develop an accurate feeling as to which particular positions suit their style
\r\n- acquire new strategic and practical opening knowledge
\r\n
\r\nIvan Sokolov explains matters profoundly, honestly and objectively, and includes lots of inside stories from top-level chess, neither sparing his collegue grandmasters nor himself in his comments.
\r\n
\r\nIvan Sokolov is a top grandmaster who was born in Bosnia in 1968 and has been living in the Netherlands for many years. He was Yugoslav champion in 1988 and Dutch champion in 1995 and 1998.
\r\n
\r\nIn his rich career Sokolov has beaten former world champions Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik as well as current world champion Viswanathan Anand.
