Is effective-middle-game-play a yes-or-no thing or a matter of degree? Is there reason to rule out possible improvement with the right sort of book? ...

U realise just recommending books isn't gonna make someone improve right lol.

I am just trying to call attention to possible choices.

U think someone that plays casually on chess.com is gonna go read a book about chess? lol

I have no idea what an individual is going to do. I see nothing wrong with calling attention to possibilities.

And i see nothing wrong with providing situationally sound advice either. Whats ur problem? get irritated when someone else provides better info?

I have posted no negative comment about providing situationally sound advice.

The point of the middlegame is to separate the opening from the endgame.

Middle game is about optimising all ur minor and heavy pieces. In short this means u want to think about what ur plan is from the middle game till end, and put ur pieces in squares that give them access to execute that plan. 

 

That's literally it. besides the obvious of protecting ur pieces, no blunders etc. Ur an amateur as u said, no need to complicate it, just keep that idea in ur head.

 

Why do you have a Zionist Nazi flag in your profile?

That's the Israeli flag. The star in the middle is the Star of David, a symbol of Judaism. 

This is one of the most racially offensive posts I have ever seen in my life.

They can't detect that a person is making multiple accounts?

I think I have the general idea of the middle game, upgrade your position, break down your opponents position, further development of minor pieces... get your self an advantage for the endgame, don't blunder (of course... glare at chessalot2000) wink.png, and to get all within the middle game, you use a plan. Thanks for the links and good advice! With practice I'll definitely get better at the middle game!
