The 'Move by Move' series is excellent.I have several, The Classical French Move by Move, Alekhines Defence Move by Move, and several more.The reason why is because the middlegame of a French Defence Classical system could be considerably different than the middlegame of a Kings Indian or Ruy Lopez.Therefore I suggest this series on your favorite opening system, which covers all 3 phases, the opening, middlegame and endgame.There are many titles to choose from.

He now has a newer one Attacking Chess for Club Players which is more tactical.




I've browsed through Chess Strategy for Club Players, but haven't read it. It looks fairly good.

Judgement and Planning in Chess, by Max Euwe, covers the transition between opening and late mid-game fairly well.

If you can find some game PGN's dedicated to the openings in your repertoire, playing through them and taking notes will help a lot. I'll keep my ear to the ground (since I'm normally sprawled there anyway), and if I hear of anything I'll let you know. Apparently the middle game is hard to write about since there aren't as many of those books as there are ones dedicated to openings and to endgame play. Good luck and good chess!




The other author of the book you mentioned is Kotov.
There are quite a few books on the middlegame. It would be a decent size list. Some books on the middlegame might focus more on different things, different aspects. There are books on strategy, tactics, positional play, analysis, planning and so forth.

Don't forget Euwe's two 'The Middlegame' books. One about static features; and one about dynamic features.

Hi guys, can anyone recommend the best middle game book (paper/e-book)
I play an opening style that gets me off to a good start, then make some less than ideal moves causing me to lose any advantage gained earlier in the game?
