The opening has just finished and we must make make an important decision: what shall our middlegame strategy be? Do we seek an active plan to profit from our strengths and highlight the opponents weaknesses? Or do we adopt prophylaxis, attending to our own positions shortcomings and hindering the opponents plans? Alternatively, are there any readymade plans that we know from other games that can be tailored to fit our position? The authors present 90 multichoice tests where the reader faces this task. In detailed solutions, they explain the best solution, and why other possibilities are less convincing. We develop a feel for how the decision is made, while painlessly building our repertoire of plans in typical positions. All the examples in this book arise from Queens Pawn or Flank Openings, and are arranged by opening and level of difficulty. Many are drawn from games by virtuoso strategists such as Karpov and Petrosian. In all cases, the game is annotated in full, so we see the consequences of the critical decision, while also appreciating the finer points of some of the most instructive games in chess history. Written by Romero de la Nava. Softback, 208 pages. Dimensions 172 x 248 x 15.75mm, 394g.
