    Presented by International Master Bill Paschall for ChessLecture.com 

     

    An isolated pawn or “isolani” is a pawn which has no friendly pawn on an adjacent file. Isolated pawns are usually thought of as a weakness because they cannot be protected by other pawns. Many textbook openings create at least one isolated pawn but are nevertheless accepted as orthodox because of the advantages they create. With an isolated pawn you can have improved development and associated opportunities for counter play that offset or even outweigh the weaknesses associated with the pawn's isolation.

    • The Veresov Attack
      The Veresov Attack is a vigorous opening system which offers a wealth of interesting strategic and tactical chances for white. It is interesting to note that it sort of resembles a sort of "Queenside Ruy Lopez". This often leads to rapid queenside castling with sharpened play. Alternately, white can simply continue to develop his kingside pieces followed by kingside castling. This "dual castling" motif of the Veresov can keep black guessing as to white's true intentions.

    • Nimzo-Indian Patterns - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 46
      International Master Bryan Smith explains Nimzo Indian Defense strategies with real games. This hypermodern opening was developed by Grandmaster Aron Nimzowitsch who introduced it to master-level chess in the early 20th century. Unlike most Indian openings the NimzoIndian does not involve an immediate fianchetto, although Black often follows up with ...b6 and ...Bb7. By pinning White's knight Black prevents the threatened 4.e4 and seeks to inflict doubled pawns on White. White will attempt to create a pawn centre and develop his pieces to prepare for an assault on the Black position.
