Chess Strategy: Power of Planning - GM Adrian Mikhalchishin (Physical Disc)
Power of Planning – GM Adrian Mikhalchishin (Physical Disc)

Strategic planning is the most difficult part of the game and needed throughout, from the opening to the ending.

Strategic planning is based on an evaluation and that evaluation is based on the different elements of the position.

But what the chess books don’t describe is the direction of the plan.

Power of Planning - GM Adrian Mikhalchishin
Power of Planning – GM Adrian Mikhalchishin

The aim of every plan is the exploitation of weakness! So, spot the weakness in your position or your opponent’s and then either defend it, repair it or attack it!

There are different kinds of plans, some based on structures and others based on recurring piece constellations.

The author tackles another big subject and gives examples of how to construct plans in positions with pawn majorities on the flanks.

These examples will teach you how to exploit this important positional element properly.
