51- -> Birth and Power of a Central Passed Pawn
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

<So do we pass the ghosts that haunt us later in our lives; <they sit undramatically by the roadside like poor beggars, and we see them only from the corners of our eyes, if we see them at all. <The idea that they have been waiting there for us rarely if ever crosses our minds. <Yet they do wait, and when we have passed, they gather up their bundles of memory and fall in behind, treading in our footsteps and catching up, little by little.>>>>

-Stephen King

A passed pawn on the <6th rank <<!>>> has a tremendous effect on the opposite camp. This collection is to learn about the <brawl of a brook> before this happened. ̿̿'̿'\̵͇̿̿\=(•̪●)=/̵͇̿̿/'̿̿ ̿ ̿ ̿

<Creativity takes courage. <>> Henri Matisse

The passed pawn is a criminal, who should be kept under lock and key. Mild measures, such as police surveillance, are not sufficient. Aaron Nimzowitsch

= = =

Major-piece endings, for example ones with ♕+♖ are notorously decided in favour of the side with the more effective and/or more advanced passed pawn. From the standpoint of modern middlegame theory, the more interesting issue concerns the role of passed pawns earlier in the game. ... John Watson, Secrets of modern chess theory, (Chapter 'The lustful contemporary passed pawn', p 37.)
