Zenon Franco has regularly annotated top-level games for more than a quarter
of a century. He has drawn upon this vast experience to present 50 hugely
instructive games illustrating a wide variety of chess ideas. Key themes are
illustrated by several games, so that we gain a well-rounded appreciation of the
relevant ideas, and develop foresight that will enable us to make the right
decisions at the board by anticipating problems before they arise. Topics
include: Pawn Sacrifice, Exchange Sacrifice, The Art of Manoeuvring, The Second
Weakness, Permanent vs. Temporary Advantages, Regrouping, 'Strange' Exchanges,
Denying the Opponent Squares, and The Central Breakthrough.
Zenon Franco is a grandmaster from Paraguay who now lives in Spain. He
