Ivan SokolovSample pages (pdf)
After his outstanding 2008 book "Winning Chess Middlegames" Grandmaster Ivan Sokolov takes us further into his dungeon of middlegame skills. For this book he focuses, in his entertaining and well-known style, on different aspects of the complex middlegame.
As usual Ivan breaks new ground and provides us with a variety of instructive examples on different middlegame themes. Many were taken from very recent, top-level tournament practice.
