The works of the classics in this area are not outdated, but a modern view of the problem is useful, taking into account the connection between the middlegame and the actual theory of principles. There are 75 examples in the book, in each of which at least one partner bears the title of grandmaster. All games are played in the 21st century. Initially, strategic plans are considered against the backdrop of enemy defensive actions, then the active opposition of the parties as part of the positional game is studied. .For a wide range of chess lovers.
