Key Concepts of Chess: Pawn Structures, Vol. 1 (Download)
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 maneuvered into good positions and what should we then consider? IM Herman Grooten will offer rules-of-thumb and concepts to give clubchess players the necessary guidance to try and find the right paths in their own games.
In this two-part course the emphasis will be on typical pawn-structures, ones that appear quite often in games and that will be very recognizable to club-chess players. Hence, the topics “Open and half-open files” and “the pawn chain” will be covered extensively on this video course.
