In contrast to the opening or the endgame, the middlegame seems to offer little in the way of concrete starting-points for methodical study. Former world championship candidate Jan Timman deals, on the basis of countless examples encountered in his rich chess career, with themes like ?strong knight against bishop? and 'the dominant bishop pair?. How is one to proceed when one emerges from the opening with a strong knight and one?s opponent is stuck with a bad bishop? And is the bishop pair really as strong as they say? With his lucid style and practical approach, Jan Timman follows in the footsteps of his teachers Max Euwe and Mikhail Botvinnik.
