Nimzowitsch, A My System
The Center (and development), To be ahead in development is the first objective, Get lead by seeking gain in tempi, Do not move piece more than once, Liquidate in order to keep development progressing, Do not hunt pawns when pieces are not developed
Play on open Files, Evolutionary (convergent) Attack, Revolutionary (sacrifice) Attack, Identify your Objective!
Play in the 7th and 8th Ranks, Occupy in end game, Occupy as long as possible (cramping defenses are required), Special cases, 7th Rank Absolute (w/passed pawn) usually wins, Doubled Rooks give perpetual check, Drawing Apparatus Rook+Knight, Maruading raid on 7th rank, Combined play in 7th and 8th ranks (enveloping in the corner)
The passed pawn, "the candidate", blockade (a "Criminal" who must be kept under lock and key)
Exchanging, to SEIZE(or open) a file without loss of tempo, to DESTROY a defender, to AVOID RETREATING (losing time), Selling one's life as dearly as possible, Simplification, Superiority in material, Lead in development
