Throughout a game of chess, the players must constantly make judgments and decisions that cannot be determined simply by calculation. They must then rely on their positional judgment. Good positional skills are primarily developed by experience, but they can also be learned. In this book, Carsten Hansen provides a wealth of advice and ideas that will help give readers a helping hand up to new levels of positional understanding. Paramount in this discussion is the player's need to weigh up positional elements at the board, and decide which are most important for the situation at hand. Topics include: the quest for weaknesses, "what is the initiative?", understanding imbalances, the relative value of the pieces, decisions regarding pawn-structures, structural weaknesses, and where and how to attack.
