    In this course we will look at pawn storms when both kings are castled on the same side. This will serve as a great attacking tool but as we will see, it is risky if you do it at the wrong time. The first part of the course is aimed at showing you the strength of pawn storms, either by having you start them or conclude attacks where the pawn storm has already taken place. The last part of the course is a test where you have to decide in each position whether a pawn storm is the right decision or...
