Tripled pawns are rarely seen in chess, and unlike doubled pawns, they are 99% of the time a weakness or liability. It is hard to protect them and they will easily be captured by opposing queens or rooks. They also block each other. Here is an example of how useless they are.

Try not to get tripled pawns in your game since they can make you lose even though you have a material advantage. Enjoy!

    I actually had a winning position after my pawns were tripled. The opposite King had castled to that side, and it was quite advantageous to be behind that screen of pawns in the mid game.
