FM Charles Storey’s “Positional Chess Skills” - Pawn Structure is Overrated!

Opening: A25, A87: English, Dutch

Player(s): Andersson, Piket, Kasparov

The Master says: "c'mon, don't be worried about your pawn structure!". Wait a moment, hold on! I have been studying chess for years, and my teachers have always told me to pay attention and be careful about the pawn structure in my games!
Well, this is Charlie "The Sniper" Storey, not your friendly neighbor chess master.
And Charlie, in this fantastic video, explains to you why in some circumstances, the most important thing you need to care about is the placement and the activity of your pieces more than your pawn structure.
Of course, saying that the pawn structure does not count is a hyperbole, which the Master uses to get your attention to one of the primary and fundamental positional skills.
Enjoy this third video of the series!
