Understanding Chess Middlegames
The three-times World Chess Solving Champion distils the most useful middlegame concepts and knowledge into 100 lessons that everyone can understand. John Nunn turns his attention to the middlegame - the phase of the chess battle where most games are decided, yet the one that has received the least systematic treatment from chess writers. With the outstanding clarity for which he is famous, Nunn breaks down complex problems into bite-sized pieces. Each lesson features two inspiring examples from modern chess, annotated honestly and with keen focus on the main instructive points. Both sides' ideas are emphasised, to give a clear picture of the ways to disrupt typical plans as well as how to form them.
