Adrian Mikhalchishin:
Pawn structures you should know

Aaron Nimzowitsch knew how to teach chess and he knew how to study the middlegame. His advice was to “study typical pawn structures.”

Every structure has its typical plans and to know these plans helps you to find your way in these positions.

On this DVD the author presents and explains the most common central structures every chess player should know: The Hedgehog, the Maroczy, Hanging pawns and the Isolani.

Adrian Mikhalchishin, a grandmaster since 1978, is currently among the top five world trainers and the Chairman of the FIDE Trainers’ Commission. He trained the team of USSR in 1980’s, national teams of Slovenia, Poland and the Netherlands, and was the trainer of Anatoly Karpov (1980-1986), Zsuzsa Polgar, Alexander Beliavsky, Maja Chiburdanidze, Arkadij Naiditsch and Vassily Ivanchuk.

Read this 2009 interview in which Adrian Mikalchishin (or Mihalcisin or Mihalcišin) discusses his life and the strategy of chess training. It contains some interesting historical narrative starting with the following lines:

I was very lucky to enter into the famous Lvov Chess School. The founder was the famous trainer, Viktor Kart, a close friend of the great Leonid Stein, who came to our training sessions to show his most recent games. He was our hero and we wanted to be like him. We being: future GMs Marta Litynska, Oleg Romanishin, Aleksandr Beliavsky, Iossif Dorfman, and me. Then came Zoya Lelchuk and Vassily Ivanchuk, later followed by Andrei Volokitin, the Muzychuk sisters and a group of young GMs.
