If you want to be a well-rounded chess player, it is vital that you have a good understanding of positional play using chess pawn structures.
In this 6th Power Play DVD, Daniel King discusses three classic questions:
- The Isolated Queen’s Pawn
- Central passed chess pawns
- When to exchange chess pawns (and when not to exchange pawns)
In each case, the slightest difference in the placement of pieces can make a massive difference to the assessment of the position.
At the end of the lectures, you can test your understanding of these themes by examining a series of specially selected test positions.
The Power Play series is suitable for anyone looking to improve their chess, but also provides ready-made lessons and exercises for a trainer.
