Book DescriptionChess Middlegame Combinations, a companion volume to Chess Middlegame Planning, forms the second part of Peter Romanovsky's classic Russian textbook on the middlegame. Now available for the first itme in an English language translation, Chess Middlegame Combinations is written with a view to helping the reader acquire a practical understanding of middlegame techniques as well as an appreciation for the beauty and aesthetics of chess.

Highlights of this book include Master Romanovsky's discussion of the relationship of chess history to modern day thinking, the interrelationship of positional weaknesses with combinational motives, the cooperation of the pieces in carrying out tactical operations, and the importance of a balanced and organized thinking process.

International Grandmaster Kotov has praised Romanovsky's skill in teaching "not only the fine points of modern technique, but the evolution of chess ideas and the history of the game."

After studying Romanovsky, the reader should never make a move without good reason - a positional plan or combinational idea - ever again!

    Planning is critical to winning in chess.

With 188 positions and 559 diagrams ranging from the classics to little-known gems of Russian chess, the author challenges you to form your own impression and then see how the masters honed in on the key elements to achieve victory, or neglected them and went down to defeat.

  • Combinations in the Middlegame
    As I also remarked in my review, the Soviet concept of a beginner is clearly wider than ours, and to make the book even wider in its scope and appeal I have added some supplementary material. I must confess that I have had some misgivings about the correct rendering of certain technical terms, but in the absence of an internationally accepted terminology each translator must take his own line on such matters. Also in translating certain extracts quoted from authors whose books are available in English I have followed the Russian text in those rare cases where it differs slightly from the English version. I trust that this book will give real pleasure to its readers and help those players who wish to learn to play combinations.
