Tactics and strategy. What. This delivery is the key to the exciting world of combinations. Using fine examples, the author manages to convey the essential ideas in an easy and understandable way.

Pawn shapes. What. The formation of pawns is a fundamental subject in chess. A proper placement of these on the board will allow the pieces to act in harmony. Therefore, understanding the different structures provides valuable tools for a deeper understanding of the game. Among other topics, the author highlights the strength of united pawns, or the strength or weakness of past pawns. It also explains how bent pawns compensate for their weakness when they feed toward the center and gives guidelines for performing in positions with isolated or hanging pawns.

The top strategy. What. The confluence of different factors determines the outcome of the chess game, and that is precisely what high strategy is about. How threats are transformed, how fights are decided between bishop and horse, or between bishops of different colors, or everything related to the control of open columns, among other topics, make up the toolbox with which to make final decisions. With the precision and simplicity that characterize the author, the materials necessary for the understanding and enjoyment of the game are presented here.
