Most experts agree that to reach a high standard at chess, one must not only be able to calculate properly but also master the many positional points of the game. However, while tactical ability is clear-cut and can be improved simply by the continual practice of puzzles, learning the finer points of positional play that come so naturally to Grandmasters can seem like a frightening task for the less experienced player. In this book, Grandmaster John Emms aims to solve this problem, giving the reader a thorough grooming on all the crucial aspects of chess strategy. Moving on from the basic principles, Emms draws upon both his own experiences and those of other international players to unravel the mystery surrounding positional chess. This book will be particularly helpful for those who have previously honed their chess skills with the highly popular Simple Chess.

*An advanced course in chess strategy
*Written by an experienced chess professional
*Ideal for club and tournament players
John Emms is one of Britain's strongest Grandmasters and has represented England in various team tournaments. He has many works to his name, including Sicilian Kan and Attacking with 1 e4. He is resident in the UK.
