Key Concepts of Chess – Pawn Structures Vol. 1

Open-, Half-Open Files and The Pawn Chain

In this series it’s all about strategy for club players, explained in a simple way with clear examples! The idea is to focus on certain themes using specific pawn structures.

The central question is: how can the pieces be manoeuvred into good positions and what should we then consider?

Hence, the topics “Open and half-open files” and “the pawn chain” will be covered extensively on this video course.

Key Concepts of Chess – Pawn Structures Vol. 2

The Isolated Queen’s Pawn and The Passed Pawn

In this second part the emphasis will be on typical pawn structures that appear quite often in games, and that will be very recognizable for clubchess players.

For example, on this video course the topics “the isolated queen pawn (IQP)” and “the passed-pawn in the middlegame” will be discussed in detail.

Because the IQP can appear on the board in many opening variations, it is worthwhile to study. The fact that sometimes a passed-pawn can be invaluable and can cause an astonishing effect will be music to the ears of the club-chess player.
