Winning in d4 pawn structures

Have you ever wondered how grandmasters can tell in a matter of seconds what is really going on in a chess position? It's all just a question of structure, as Ivan Solokov explains in this groundbreaking work.

The high school of the middle game in chess deals with the often neglected but extremely important topic of pawn structures, which are divided into four main types: doubled pawns, isolated pawns, hanging pawns and pawn majorities.

This book helps the reader to solve the basic problems of the middlegame: space, tension and initiative, with easy-to-understand verbal explanations and in-depth analyses.

By studying this book, the club player will:

- greatly improve his middle game skills

- get a good feeling for which positions suit your style,

- acquire new strategic and practical opening knowledge.

World-class grandmaster Ivan Sokolov was born in Bosnia in 1968 and has lived in the Netherlands for many years. He was Yugoslavian champion in 1988 and Dutch champion in 1995 and 1998. In his glittering career, Sokolov has won against world champions Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik and Viswanathan Anand.
