Every chess player needs to know how to handle his pawns. Pawns form the ‘playing fields’ of chess games, a semi-permanent ‘structure’ that can determine whether a player wins or loses. This comprehensive guide to pawn structure teaches the reader where pieces are best placed, which pawns should be advanced further or exchanged, and why certain structures are good and others disastrous. This invaluable book is a major update of this chess-world classic, first published in 1975 and unavailable for several years.
