To improve our chess we need to understand chess strategy, but how do we begin to study something which appears to be so complex? Full-time chess teacher Adam Hunt tackles this problem by presenting an accessible and easy-to-read guide, aimed at club players and juniors. Hunt covers all the vital components of chess strategy, including development, king safety, attack and defence, initiative, pawn play, strengths and weaknesses, and much more. He examines both grandmaster games and those played by students, demonstrates model strategic play and identifies typical mistakes and how to avoid them.
Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.
