(GW) What I thought I understood about ...

Isolated Pawn

  • Also known as an "Isolani", this is any Pawn whose friendly Pawns have left the adjacent file(s), leaving a Pawn on its own, without friendly Pawn support. The Isolani is at greater risk of being captured, or may tie up one or more Pieces for its defence.
