The interaction between pawns and pieces is a challenge for every chess player. Much depends on the smallest unit in chess.

The focus is on important questions:

  • What structure should be aimed for?
  • What are the special features of the position and what is the right plan?
  • How can the characters be staged effectively?

In "The Power of Pawns" the authors use practical examples to explain typical structures and strategies. In the introductory section they examine the respective effects of the pawn position on the individual pieces. The second part of the book deals in detail with the most important pawn constellations. Great emphasis is placed on the understandable presentation of positional characteristics and both sides' plans.

Studying the extensively commented grandmaster games, which include numerous practical tips, increases the reader's understanding of chess and helps them achieve better results in their own practice.

The book is aimed at club players with DWZ/Elo from 1300 to 2200.
