GM Davorin Kuljasevic - Pawns are the Soul of Chess - Video 4

Opening: A18: English: Mikenas–Carls Variation: 1...Nf6 2.Nc3 e6 3.e4 (without: 3...c5)

Player(s): Van Foreest, J-Ganguly S

Video 4 - Pawn Dynamics - Creating Space -- Part 2

In this chapter, we continue looking at fascinating examples of pawn sacrifices that clear space for other pieces. In terms of general understanding of this concept, there isn’t much new compared to the previous chapter; only the examples and exercises (in the quiz section) increase in complexity. We examine examples in which the player sacrificing the pawn is not expecting a quick return on his investment. Instead, he hopes that the space and time gained by the sacrifice will allow him to reap the rewards gradually.
