Description

If you want to become a strong player, it’s very important to know the strategy how to play with or against an isolated pawn. The importance of this topic is related to the fact that isolated pawn can arise from a huge number of openings: Queen’s Gambit, Queen’s Indian Defense, Nimzo-Indian Defense, French Defense, Caro-Kann Defense (Panov Attack) and even Sicilian Defense.

This course covers all possible plans how to play the positions with an isolated pawn.

There are 4 strategies how to play against isolated pawn: 

  • Obstruct enemy pieces
  • Pass the game into the endgame
  • Simplify the position
  • Turn an isolated pawn into a pair

And there are also 4 strategies for players who like to play with isolated pawn:

  • Make a breakout
  • Hold the enemy weak pawn
  • Start the attack on the kingside
  • Use c-file

Every strategy is explained by example of real game between 2 grandmasters.

And finally I prepared a quizz for you to practice at the end the course.

With this course you also get:

  • unlimited lifetime access at no extra costs
  • all future additional lectures, game examples
  • never any questions asked full 30 day money-back-in-full guarantee

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Viktor

​Commodity Market Analyst & Chess Coach

My name is Viktor Neustroev and I am a trader.

Since 2003 I have been trading financial markets starting with FOREX and then broadening horizons to commodity markets. Trading is all my life, but it really became a passion when I started trading options. Trading financial markets gives people what they really want - financial independence.

I am also a chessplayer and a chess coach for my daughter (you can find my name in FIDE rating list). Why I like financial markets? Because it's like chess, when you know the rules, but you don't need to play against the market. Just follow your plan, again and again!

To sum up, I am here to share my trading experience. I believe that everyone wants to leave a trace in history and I see my mission in teaching and making people's life better.
