Advanced Pawn Structure Training Part 1
International Master Nazí Paikidze taught this Advanced Pawn Structure Training Part 1 lesson as a live seminar in the Prodigy Program. This one-hour lesson is suitable for very advanced and expert chess players (1750-2100 Elo) who want to improve their ability to form plans based on the pawn structure. Nazi uses a variety of instructive examples from real games, including some classics, and asks students to identify the weaknesses and shape a plan based on attacking them. The isolani and hanging pawn structures are covered in this lesson, both of which are very common and important structures to understand for competitive play.
