Lists with This Book. Oct 18, Gary Patella rated it it was amazing. This book gives great insight into the strategies one should employ based on the type of pawn structure. Thematic tactics are also shown in certain structures, and the addition of illustrative games shows how the principles take shape in actual games.
There is a lot of information contained in this book, so I will have to read it again at some point in the future. Dec 30, Steven rated it it was ok Shelves: Frequently considered a classic in chess literature, but I think it suffers too much from Kmoch’s desire to create a comprehensive terminology for his theories about pawns.
Full of insights, particularly once he gets to pawns and pieces, but organized too theoretically to be practically useful. Also suffers from not being in algebraic notation. Jul 30, Buffalonickel rated it liked it. If you can get by the author’s unusual pawn jargon “candidates”, “passers”, etc.
He is also slightly guilty in forgetting that we are not all strong chess players and lets his exercises get over the heads of those who are not chess masters. Mar 22, Ernest Cadorin rated it it was ok Shelves: Feb 15, Melanie Brennan rated it really liked it.
