It¿s been said many times before that chess is an easy game to learn, but a difficult one to master. The game is full of difficult questions such as, ¿What do you do when your opponent is skilful enough to prevent both checkmate and material loss?¿ However, once the principal strategic ideas are recognised, then everything becomes much clearer and the game becomes much simpler. In this book Grandmaster and experienced chess writer John Emms provides the reader with the fundamental knowledge required to enter every game with confidence.
* A complete introduction to chess strategy
* Important positional ideas are covered
* Ideal for club and tournament players
John Emms is one of Britain¿s strongest Grandmasters and is a member of the English national team. He has also carved out a reputation for being an excellent chess writer and has many works under his name including The Scandinavian and The Survival Guide to Rook Endings.
