Jeder Vereinsspieler kennt das Problem: Die Eröffnung ist vorbei, was nun? Finden Sie zuerst den richtigen Plan, dann werden auch gute Züge folgen! Mit diesem Buch präsentiert der Internationale Meister Herman Grooten Amateurspielern einen kompletten und strukturierten Kurs darüber: • wie man wesentliche Merkmale in allen Stellungstypen erkennt und • wie sich diese Merkmale ausnutzen lassen, um den richtigen Plan auszuwählen. Seine Lehren basieren auf den berühmten “Elementen” von Wilhelm Steinitz, Grooten hat die Arbeit des ersten Weltmeisters aber wesentlich erweitert und aktualisiert. Er liefert viele moderne Beispiele, die bei seiner Betreuung talentierter Jugendlicher den Praxistest bestanden haben. In Schachstrategie für Vereinsspieler erlernen Sie die Grundelemente für ein positionelles Verständnis: Bauernstruktur, Figurenspiel, Entwicklungsvorsprung, offene Linien, Schwächen, Raumvorteil und Sicherheit des Königs. Sie meistern die Kunst, einen vorübergehenden Vorteil in andere, dauerhaftere Vorteile umzuwandeln. Der Autor erklärt ebenfalls, was zu tun ist, wenn in einer gegebenen Stellung die Grundprinzipien in verschiedene Richtungen zu deuten scheinen. Jedes Kapitel dieses Grundlagenlehrbuchs endet mit einer Reihe von äußerst lehrreichen Übungen.
