Compiled by randomsac
--*--

Pawns can be deadly! Beware of the pawn and its seven brothers.

3 central passers spell death
Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1994 
(E93) King's Indian, Petrosian System, 41 moves, 1-0

fair trade: N for 3 passers
Dominguez Perez vs Radjabov, 2004 
(B30) Sicilian, 45 moves, 1-0

Pawns are also useful in trapping the king
A S Rasmussen vs Robson, 2009 
(E04) Catalan, Open, 5.Nf3, 43 moves, 0-1

That not-so-innocent d pawn will become quite a problem
Miles vs Yusupov, 1985 
(B13) Caro-Kann, Exchange, 24 moves, 0-1

funny how one pawn can make all the difference
La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834 
(C51) Evans Gambit, 100 moves, 1-0

That f-pawn would have crushed the opponent
K Spraggett vs B Willis, 1999 
(A61) Benoni, 34 moves, 1-0

The b-pawn grows up so fast...
V Malaniuk vs J Ivanov, 1989 
(C34) King's Gambit Accepted, 22 moves, 1-0

passed pawns. need I say more?

(C29) Vienna Gambit, 48 moves, 1-0

Central passed pawns...

passed pawns are a good investment

Trading a knight for 4! passed pawns

More passed pawns are better than a knight.
