Pawn Structures: 1. Protected Passed Pawn, 2. Connected Passed Pawn and 3.Outside Passed Pawn
Today I\’m going to share about the different types of pawn structures in pawn endings.
What is a Passed Pawn?
A pawn that can\’t be hindered by an opponent\’s pawn on its way to the promotion square is called a \’Passed Pawn\’.
If this pawn is protected by a friendly pawn, then its a \’Protected Passed Pawn\’.
If the second pawn is also a passed pawn then we call it as a \’Connected Passed Pawns\’.
A passed pawn that is far away from the main mass of pawns is called an \’Outside Passed Pawn\’.
1. Protected Passed Pawn:
It is the best example for the Protected passed pawn. Here white wins with the help of the protected passer on c5.
White to play:
1.Ke3 Ke5 2.Kf3 Kf5 3.Kg3 Ke5 (3… Kg5? 4.c6 unstoppable Queen) 4.Kg4 Ke6 5.Kf4 Kf6 6.Ke4 Ke6 7.Kd4 Kd7 8.Kd5 Kc7 9.c6 Kc8 10.Kc5 Kc7 11.Kxb5 Kc8 12.Kb6+-
Because of the Protected passer on c5, black king must not leave the big square zone c5-f5-f8-c8. By outflank manoeuvre white king can enter in blacks territory and captures the b5 pawn.
