In chess you cannot take your move back, but you can always return a misplaced piece to its former square at the cost of some time. Pawns on the other hand can never move backwards, making pawn moves truly permanent decisions.

Descripción

Small Steps to Giant Improvement In chess you cannot take your move back, but you can always

return a misplaced piece to its former square at the cost of some time. Pawns on the other hand can

never move backwards, making pawn moves truly permanent decisions.

This irreversibility makes Pawn Play among the most difficult aspects of chess strategy, which is one

reason few books have been written about this topic – and some that have are almost

incomprehensible.

Small Steps to Giant Improvement

 

Double Olympiad gold medallist Sam Shankland has gone the other way – breaking down the

principles of Pawn Play to basic, easily understandable guidelines every chess player should know.

Shankland starts with extremely simple examples, but then lifts the level, illustrating the universality

of the book’s guidelines by showing how grandmasters could have made better decisions by using them.

 

Sam Shankland is a Grandmaster and permanent member of the US national chess team, winning an
Individual Gold Medal in 2014 and Team Gold in 2016. In 2015 and 2017 he played Board 1 for the
US team at the World Team Championship.
