<em><strong>GM Ivan Sokolov on this DVD</strong></em>: "We deal with different dynamic decisions involving pawns. The aim of this DVD is to arm club/tournament players with fresh ideas and chess strategies that they can use in their own practice.

I hope my selected material will inspire the viewer to take similar decisions in his/her own games.

I have structured this DVD into 4 chapters: 1. Minor Sacrifices 2. Rolling Pawns 3. Allowing pawn islands 4. Dynamic ideas with g- and h-pawns.

Every chapter consists of model games displaying different aspects of the theme.

The variety of games should give you enough insights to spot these chess strategies in your own practice."

Understanding Middlegame Chess Strategies Vol.1: Dynamic Pawns - GM Ivan Sokolov (Physical Disc)
Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.1: Dynamic Pawns – GM Ivan Sokolov

GM Ivan Sokolov on this DVD: “We deal with different dynamic decisions involving pawns. The aim of this DVD is to arm club/tournament players with fresh ideas and chess strategies that they can use in their own practice.

I hope my selected material will inspire the viewer to take similar decisions in his/her own games.

I have structured this DVD into 4 chapters: 1. Minor Sacrifices 2. Rolling Pawns 3. Allowing pawn islands 4. Dynamic ideas with g- and h-pawns.

Every chapter consists of model games displaying different aspects of the theme.

The variety of games should give you enough insights to spot these chess strategies in your own practice.”
