The Chess GPS - Volume 2
The first chess world champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, became the forefather of positional play more then 100 years ago. He dissolved the romantic notion that one can only taste sweet victory, by engaging in an attack, and searching for a combination with sacrifices. Steinitz stated that in order to win, the player must concentrate on accumulating small advantages enough of a large and significant one. This first book in the “Chess GPS” series aims to introduce a new concept in the search for positional advantage and is aimed towards modernizing Steinitz’s theory.
