GM Bojkov is back! Today he begins a well-researched series on a pawn structure that will surely occur in your games sooner or later. Make sure you're good with the Carlsbad. In today's part 1, he focuses on the infamous minority attack. How can two pawns defeat three? With the help of an open c-file, that's how. Bojkov shows all the permutations of the attack on the c6-pawn, including a World Champion preemptively attacking the pawn even before it gets there!
