Pawn Play in Chess
Learn from the U.S. Women's Champion!
International Master Nazí Paikidze taught this Pawn Play in Chess lesson as a live seminar in the Prodigy Program. This one-hour lesson is suitable for advanced chess players (1500+ Elo) who want to learn how to use pawn breakthroughs effectively to create threats. She uses example positions from her own play, including games from the 2016 Women's Olympiad in Baku to illustrate how pawns can be used to increase the pressure in an attack, or to create counterplay in otherwise bad positions.
