In this video, we are going to study the importance of the pawn structure when preparing a plan. It is well known that in open positions the most important thing is piece play. However, in closed or semi-closed positions we have to work long-term plans and it is necessary to examine the pawns structure to see what breaks are available, compare the open columns for each side, and very important: to see which different pieces each side has because this will help us find the best strategical ideas.
