  • how to make use of those characteristics to choose the right plan
His teachings are based on the famous "Elements" of Wilhelm Steinitz, but Grooten has significantly expanded and updated the work of the first World Champion. He supplies many modern examples, tested in his own practice as a coach of talented youngsters .

In Chess Strategy for Club Players you will learn the basic elements of positional understanding:
  • pawn structure
  • piece placement
  • lead in development
  • open files
  • weaknesses
  • space advantage
  • king safety
  • exploiting small advantages.
The author also explains what to do when, in a given position, the basic principles seem to point in different directions. Each chapter of this fundamental primer ends with a set of highly instructive exercises.
