Dangerous passed pawns! Part 2


  • 4 years ago


    Thanks, yes you are right Slick, 28.Nxd4 is just a possible move. Indeed, c2 wins right the way. White made a blunder in the move 24...Nxc8?, simply pawn x pawn and the game is more or less drawn.

    I pretend to explain the idea of dangerous passed pawns, indeed, this game was a blitz game of mine, and obviously the time pressure made white blunder, Nxc8 (which seems natural).

    These instructive ideas can help in order to get a victory in a blitz game or an online one (see my previous post). Could be the little difference between a draw an a victory ;)

    Greetings and thanks for your feedback!

    Nice puzzle...not sure why move 27 for Black preceded his move 28 and Whites' 27th move was a blunder...but still a nice puzzle.

    Thanks, as a coach to kids, I like these short, yet clear leasons.

    Well, try to use the idea of passed pawns in order to get something better. Imagine you are playing a blitz or bullet game and your opponent is under time pressure. Make him blunder!
