The Middlegame - BOOK 2

Dynamic and Subjective Features

Product Code: B0204IS

img

Max Euwe was World Chess Champion in the 1930s and he collaborated with International Master Kramer to write this great treatise on how to play chess middlegames. Book II of the series examines the initiative, the different types of attack on the king, the art of defense, maneuver and liquidation, and the common failings over the chessboard to which even great players are occasionally subject. Their theme is lavishly illustrated by master games. The final part of this book is devoted to a survey of the personal styles of thirty-eight grandmaster and World Champions from Anderssen to Petrosian, from Morphy to Tal and Fischer.

In this volume, the former World Champion and his collaborator complete their study of middle game theory. It is a classic, unlikely to be superseded and is an essential addition to the library of every serious student.
