IQP, Isolated Queen Pawn, Games
Compiled by Mating Net
--*--

This collection shows how to take advantage of the dynamic possibilities of the isolated d pawn. If the isolani manages to advance, look out! On the other hand, if it is firmly blockaded, it tends to become a liability that leads to a lost endgame as pieces are exchanged. I find this strategic struggle utterly fascinating.
