World Champion Magnus Carlsen, answering a question about the methods of improving young chess players, emphasized: “One of the most important skills is pattern recognition: the ability to see typical themes and patterns on the board, characteristic features of a position and the resulting consequences.” This book is dedicated to the development of precisely these skills and abilities: it clearly shows what kind of `` image '' (pattern, typical maneuver, plan) must be recognized in one type of position or another in order to choose the correct plan. We are talking specifically about strategic techniques, and not about tactical ones, like typical mate attacks.
The book is divided into four parts, each of which is preceded by a small preface. The chapters contain at least six examples per template, since repetition is the mother of learning. Self-help assignments will help you better assimilate the material. After studying the book, the typical plans, maneuvers and related ideas presented in it will firmly remain in your memory and will be of great benefit in the upcoming tournament battles.
For a wide range of chess lovers.
