Pawns form the “playing fields” of chess, a semipermanent “structure” that can determine whether a player wins—or loses. This major update to the classic guide to pawn structure, written by international Grandmaster Andrew Soltis, teaches readers how to handle their pawns. He explains where best to place them, which pawns to advance or exchange, and why certain structures are good and others disastrous. Pawn Structure Chess is a must-have for everyone who plays.
International Grandmaster Andrew Soltis is a professional journalist who writes for the New York Post and a popular chess writer. His many books include The Wisest Things Ever Said About Chess, Transpo Tricks in Chess, and How to Choose a Chess Move (all Batsford).
