As I promised, in this video, we will see how to fight against hanging pawns. Again, we see similarities with isolated pawns. If you play against this pawn duo, you want to block them and put some pressure. Also, if you manage to exchange some pieces and thus limit side with pawn duo active play - dynamic possibilities, that is also a good idea. As you will see from examples, sometimes you can even sacrifice material (usually a pawn) to obtain a favorable blockade!
