GM Misa Pap - Strategic Planning in Chess - Vd2 - Isolani - Active Pieces Play

Opening: B22: Sicilian: Alapin Variation

Player(s): Dimitrijevic, Dimitrijevic, Pap, Rabrenovic, Solcanean, Perunovic, Muhametov

Another possible good strategy when you have an isolated pawn is to make active piece play and/or a kingside attack. It is not always possible, but you need to be ready for this because isolated pawn, by definition, gives you more space and more chance for active play. So, whether you aim for an attack, active play, or maybe for the d4-d5 push, that is all fine, as long as you don't end up in an endgame with your pawn blocked and under pressure. Therefore, the plan is simple: don't exchange too many pieces, and always play dynamic chess with isolani!
