Book DescriptionWritten by a young Grand Master, this introduction to chess strategy is aimed primarily at players for whom a game plan is utterly enigmatic. By isolating the basic elements and illustrating them through a selection of Master and Grand Master games, Simple Chess breaks down the mystique of strategy into plain, easy-to-understand ideas. (Only a knowledge of basic chess terminology is assumed.) More than a lesson in fundamentals, it illustrates an increasingly prevalent style of play--a method that begins by slowly accumulating small, permanent advantages, saving the outright attack for later. Newly converted into the current algebraic notation, Simple Chess offers a strategic weapon for players at every level of expertise.
