Chess Strategy Chess Books

What is chess strategy? Strategy is best described as conceptual planning, recognizing positional motives and developing long term plans to improve. Whether you consider yourself an attacking or a more positional player, strategy is a major factor in every game, on all levels. The opening has ended, and some characteristics emerge on the board. What are the basic principles? What can be considered as bad en good pieces, and what could be said about the pawn structures? What general ideas, motives and patterns apply to the position? Long story short: what is the right plan? Books on chess strategy are available for all levels and different type off players. Off course there are the classics - still great learning material - by non others than Aron Nimzowitsch, Siegbert Tarrasch, Max Euwe, Emanuel Lasker and Jose Raul Capablanca. Other books on strategy - one could call modern classics -are written by e.g. Mark Dvoretsky, Irving Chernev, Mikhail Shereshevsky, Jeremy Silman, Herman Grooten, John Nunn, Artur Yusupov, Carsten Hansen, Jacob Aagaard, Andrew Soltis and Yasser Seirawan. 'Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.' This was a quote of Sun Tzu, who was a Chinese general in ancient times. However, this very well could apply to the game of chess. Off course the two - strategy and tactics - don't go without each other. It's the combination of the two that gives chess his typical beauty. But strategy - a plan to improve without letting your opponent do the same -certainly makes the game unique. On top of that, it's key for the level of success of every chess player.
