228 pages, paperback, Chess Stars, 1. edition 2020

Incl. Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

The purpose of this book is to shed some light on the underlying principles that govern “boring” chess positions, bordering on equality. Such positions have gradually become the main dish of nowadays’ chess menu because people have increased their level, their stamina, their desire to grind down wins out of nothing.

The author proposes a clear streamlined method of thinking in dry equal positions without long-term plans. It is based mostly on correct evaluation and categorization of the position, and on move by move play.

The book is not for novices, it assumes that the readers have mastered the basics already and wish to make the next step in their chess development.
