This video is a nice product,

This video is a nice product, the instructors explain the material well. The most important aspect of this course is that it teaches players how to anticipate and take advantage of **** structures. Some of the material is very basic for an intermediate player such as myself but the course is long and has lots of great content. This course is good for players that have basic knowledge of the game but want to learn about the esoteric study of **** play.

Mastering Pawn Play – GM Alex Yermolinsky & IM John Watson

When evaluating a chess position, every Grandmaster considers four key factors: king safety, material count, the activity of the pieces, and pawn structure.

Most amateurs tend to pay too much attention to piece activity and material, and neglect assessing critical pawn play and pawn structures when deciding on their strategy.

How many times have you played what you thought was a good game, just to realize you’re now facing a lost ending?

Many of these endings are lost because players neglect to account for pawn play and the resulting pawn structures. However, you can stop that now and master the keys of pawn play with this new video series.

Crucial topics are covered such as pawn chains, isolated pawns, doubled pawns, pawn endings and more.

How can I benefit from this course?

Understanding how the pawn structures influence the game is the hallmark of a strong player but it’s often a mystery to club players.

If you’ve ever found yourself in a position where you’re running out of good moves but don’t know where you went wrong, you’ve probably misunderstood the pawn structure.

Mastering Pawn Play will fix this and help you build positions where your pieces have all the activity while your opponent gradually gets squeezed off the board.

Knowledge of these motifs will prove useful in just about any position, helping you to come up with a winning plan based on the pawn structure.

Add a new weapon and dimension to your game with top instructors like IM John Watson, GM Alex Yermolinsky and NM Dan Heisman.

Enjoy this awesome course!
