Middlegame planning

Before the endgame, the gods have placed the middlegame ~ Siegbert Tarrasch (1862-1934)

One of the most important things in chess is to find the right plan. Those who are in a better position should choose to attack; those who are in a worse position should try to find a possibility to neutralise the opponent's advantages - Mat Bobula IM (Poland)
