    Understand the Trompowsky - Typical Pawn Structures

    Introduction and Free Preview

     

    The masterclass Understand the Trompowsky - Typical Pawn Structures is already a digital product. This product includes all the videos from the masterclass as well as the PGN file related to the training sessions. Overall, the material consists of approximately 5 hours of video and a PGN database which includes 109 files!

    You will find the following lectures:

    Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 - GM Swapnil Dhopade

    Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 e6 - GM Grigor Grigorov

    Typical Structures with Double Pawns on f7 and f6 - GM Krasimir Rusev

    In this article, we will briefly present some interesting moments taken from the lectures.

    Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 - GM Swapnil Dhopade

    In this lecture, GM Swapnil Dhopade presents the most important structures that might arise after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 Bf4

    Intro-00b59ac3f3

    This is by far White's main move. Now Black has two major options. 3...c5 or 3...d5 and there are different structures that arise after these moves. In this lecture, GM Dhopade examines 14 unique pawn structures and 23 model games.

    Below, you shall take a look at one of the model games:

    Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 e6 - GM Grigor Grigorov

    In the PGN version of his lecture, GM Grigor Grigorov introduces the topic in the following way:

    My connection with Trompowsky is already almost 16 years old. In 2005,  together with the great Trompowsky specialist GM Krasimir Rusev, we have been preparing opening ideas for the Bulgarian championship. During this camp, he suggested that I would try playing the Trompowsky. After getting familiar with the main ideas, I liked the arising positions. After all, I always like to give my bishop for a knight early in the opening. In the years that followed,  I wanted to enhance my classical chess understanding by trying different types of positions. That's why I kept playing mainly systems with c2-c4.

    Nowadays,  however, the main lines are so deeply explored that we often need some fresh air. That's how I started analyzing Trompowsky again. To my surprise, it turned out that according to the modern cloud engines, this is an opening full of life. In all the lines, White can at least ask some questions. When playing the Trompowsky you get the following practical benefits:

    1) by creating imbalance (giving the dark-squared bishop for a knight) we can easily play for a win

    2) we don't need so much time for preparation before the game

    3) our opponents will be less prepared than in the main lines

    4) the opening is positionally sound.

    For the current camp, I have decided to focus on the positions arising after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 e6. One of the reasons is that I have played this line for both colours. While preparing for the lecture, I have realized that White's chances shouldn't be underestimated. Black needs to be very precise in order to equalize. The material is divided into 11 important pawn structures. There is at least 1 model game for each structure. I hope that my survey will be useful for you. 

    The material is divided into 11 typical pawn structures and 15 extensively annotated model games.

    Structure 1

    diagram2-31d018d171

    This is the first important structure for the variation. We can reach it  after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 e6 3.e4 h6 4.Bxf6 Qxf6 5.c3. White is trying to build a  strong centre by means of Bd3 followed by f2-f4. At the beginning of our survey, we will examine the positions in which Black does not fight for the centre. In this case, White enjoys a tremendous space advantage and his attack can be very powerful.

    Model Game 1

    Typical Structures with Double Pawns on f7 and f6 - GM Krasimir Rusev

    GM Krasimir Rusev is a true Trompowsky specialist with more than 20 years of experience in this opening. His current lecture is very important for the understanding of the Trompowsky. The positions with doubled pawns on the f-file are the trademark of this opening. In his presentation, GM Rusev provides tons of subtleties concerning move orders, pawn structures, and tactical ideas.

    The PGN version of the lecture consists of 11 model games.

    Below, you shall take a look at one of them:
