# the pawn part 3 (the cooperation with other pieces)

• #1

This part will be in 3 differents sections: 1- Pawn with Knight  2-Pawn with Bishop  3- Pawn with Rook

The pawn with the Knight

- The Knight is often a good minor piece for stand at the very front blockade square of an ennemy pawn.

- The Knight is also often well placed in the square at the very side of an ennemy pawn who form a bélier

And now just look out at the previous example.. In this example we can easily see that the Knight is often well placed at the very side of an ennemy bélier pawn.. and you can take a rule about all this..

-The Knight is often very well placed just by the very side of a ennemy pawn who form a bélier.  By this, it keep an eye on the ennemy camp and support in a way his own pawn forming the bélier

In this example, we can see that the Knight can also play the "game of the pawn" by doing the same job that a pawn do in a duo by controling the same squares that a duo pawn could..  In this way the Knight on e4 replace exactly a fictive pawn on e5 and the Black Knight on c2 replace exactly a fictive Black pawn on c5.  But exept the fact that for doing this job better the knight should be in back on the same army pawn for be more effective...just like the White Knight.

In this example, The central Knight on e5 is the stronger minor piece on the board.  Also, the others White pieces are ready to go into action if necessary..  but the Black pieces got a lack in organization.  One of the Black Bishop shot in the mist and the other one just shot into his own wall and the Black King is under a vertical protection instead of an horizontal, and more normal, one.  And more important, the Black got no possibilities to create some stairs with their pawns and White got a excellent possibility of it (creating stair) and will be able by doing this to open up the position just around the strong central Knight on e5 and also just around the ennemy King.
In this exemple, we can see a very instructive battle of a central Knight to take advantage of the board!
The pawn with the Bishop

Now, let's see somes examples and theory's about the cooperation between pawns and Bishops.
Let's start this section by talking about the good bishop vs the bad bishop.  The Bishops need somes open lines to be strong very often.  The béliers can be really bad for the Bishops. The bad Bishop, by definition, is simply a Bishop who is blocked by his own pawns, and often, is also on the opposite color of the majority of the ennemy pawn.  And for sure, the player must much more try to avoid to have some béliers at the same color of his Bishop if he already lose one of them. Let's see an example of bads bishops.
Now, let's talk a little about the concept of weakeness of the White squares.  It's important to realize that if you lose your light Bishop your army will got a lack in all the White square, especially if the queen are gone out of the board. It's the same thing about the fact to lose the dark Bishop except for sure that in this case, it's on the Blacks squares that come the weakening.

The pawn and the Rook

-is often a good idea in a battle vs to ennemy rook to try to have a more active rook that the ennemy

Now let's go into the last section of this post.
The first example will be about the concept of open lines.
the next example look like the previous except for somes little details, just like and the outpost on c5 and c4!!
Let's see..
And now let's see somes example about rook + pawn  vs rook endgame
In the next example, we will see "how to built a bridge" let's take a look on it..
The next example is about a very popular trick called the Lucena
The next example is also about another very popular Rook trick called the Phillidor Technic.  This one is for draw a position with an endgame of rook vs rook + pawn, let's see...
The next examples will be about 7 and 8 rank attack
And now, let's see an example about the concept of column of pressure.  The goal of a column of pressure is to prepare the opening of a file for be ready at controling it at the very start of the new opened file.  Let's see..
That's all for this part..
..see you soon in part 4!
