Power of Planning (PC-DVD) - Mikhalchishin
Video running time: 3 hrs 19 min.
Planning is the most difficult part of the game and needed throughout, from the opening to the ending. A plan 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. 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 exploit this important positional element properly. *Video running time: 3 hrs 19 min.*
