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!
