GM Petrov’s New Strategies in the Middlegame - Vd16: Playing Against Isolated Pawns

Opening: D94: Grünfeld 5.e3

Player(s): Bisguier, Karpov

In this video, we will continue to work on the positions with the isolated pawns, but this time we will see how to fight against them. In this situation, we typically have to neutralize our opponent's attempts to take the initiative. Then when there is no danger for the king, you have to block the pawn and create an outpost for your knights. After that, we have to exchange pieces or force the other player to play passive and defend his weak pawns. Finally, we just have to keep improving and convert the advantage.
