Forming a plan is the most important goal of logical chess thought. Without a good plan, we are reduced to tactical opportunism, rather than harnessing the power of our pieces to achieve specific tasks and make methodical progress towards victory. However, few chess players, even those fortunate enough to have a trainer, develop a disciplined approach to planning. In this book, one of the world's leading chess teachers provides step by step guidelines for identifying the features of a position onto which our strategy should be latched. He adopts a thoroughly modern approach, recognizing that the opponent will have his own plans and be attempting to disrupt ours. The effectiveness of Kosikov's methods in particular the STEPS algorithm is shown by his pupils' overtheboard proficiency. Having presented the basics of orderly strategic thinking, Kosikov shows them at work in a variety of middlegame and endgame situations, especially the strategic minefield of minorpiece play. Examples are taken from both classic games and modern grandmaster play, together with instructive moments from games by the author's pupils. Softback, 160 pages. Dimensions 172 x 248 x 15.24mm 294.84g
