Igor Platonov was one of the most profound thinkers and theoreticians in the old Soviet Union, which held a grip on the world chess championship for decades as the title passed from one of its stars to another. Platonov's visionary insights, examined and explained here for the first time, provide you with the keys to understanding the foundational concepts of the game - and give you effective methods of training that will help you to find the most powerful moves.
