STS [9.0] - Advancement of a/b/c Pawns

Post  dann corbit on Tue Jan 19, 2010 5:34 am

Chapter 9 of the Strategic Test Suite series is now available for download.

* Consists of carefully selected 100 test positions on "Advancement of a/b/c pawns"

* All of the questions in this test suite are selected by me and thoroughly verified by Dann Corbit through analysis with the help of top engines for hours. I initially selected about 200 problems and sent them to Dann, of which 100 has passed criteria. Dann then made the final selection.

Key Ideas:

1) Marching forward with either of the a/b/c pawns in an attempt to prevent opponent from advancing his pawns further. Helps in building the strong active defense.
2) Space advantage and possession in Queen Side.
3) Control of certain Squares on the queen side, and opening up of files via exchange of pawns.
4) Tests: Engine's Queen side aggressiveness, Space control, knowledge of Rook pawn tin opener.
